Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler said he understands Brian Urlacher's sentiments about not wanting his former team to win the Super Bowl without him.
Urlacher told multiple outlets in a light-hearted way on Thursday that while he'll root for his remaining friends on the Bears to do well, it would be tough to watch them win the Super Bowl now that his 13-year career is over.
"I don't blame him," Cutler told reporters at a charity outing he hosted Thursday night. "I think if I had just retired, I think I'd probably be in a similar boat.
"You miss the game, you obviously wish everyone well. If your team does go the distance, you're wishing you're there with them. I can't blame him for saying that."
