Brian Urlacher Says Some Former NFL Players are Faking CTE

SJ - July 13, 2022

First of all that would never happen.  Nobody would ever fake anything ever.  If you read some takes on what Brian Urlacher had to say about players faking CTE that's what you might walk away thinking.

The former Bears linebacker said on the "Bussin' With the Boys" podcast that some former players say they have CTE so they can be part of a fucking lawsuit.  Now there isn't a current lawsuit, but that doesn't mean he's wrong about some players.

Here's what Urlacher said, "I feel like I'm decently sharp still.  You know, there's some things I forget, but my friends forget shit too.  I feel like I'm still doing pretty well.  There are some guys I played with who claimed — I don't know, here’s the problem now with all the guys with the CTE, if they do have it, I feel for them, but there's guys who say they have it just so they can be in the fucking lawsuit."

"They want that money from the NFL and I get it, man.  You know, everyone wants to get their due, but there's really guys that have it, that deserve to be taken care of.  And there's the guys that don't have it who want to be — who want to have it just so they can get part of that lawsuit and that just drives me crazy."

What does Urlacher know?  He's not a doctor blah, blah, blah.  Here's what he does know, he knows former players, probably a lot of them.  He might have the lawsuit thing wrong, but that doesn't mean there aren't some guys, not all, some guys who fake symptoms.

Oh, I almost forgot what some outlets are doing, Urlacher has fake hair!
