Chicago fans likely will have plenty to say to New Orleans RB Reggie Bush when the Bears play host to the Saints on NFL Network tonight. Bush enraged Bears fans when he did a flip into the end zone following his 88-yard touchdown reception against Chicago during the 2006 NFC Championship Game. However, Bears players haven’t really thought about it, reports Chicago Tribune writer Vaughn McClure, who got this reaction from LB Brian Urlacher.
- “I think we won that game, right? Honestly, to me, that other stuff was so blown out of proportion,” Urlacher said. “I don’t think Reggie directed that toward me.
- “I don’t even think about it until somebody brings it up. He was excited about his play and turned around and pointed, I guess. And I was the guy right there. He’s lucky I didn’t catch him. If I was running at full speed, I would have.” MORE
But don’t feel too bad for all the abuse that will be heaped on Bush. Longtime girlfriend Kim Kardashian said she would say “yes” if Bush popped the question.
