Hanie's response in Game 2 is the key

By Jon Greenberg



LAKE FOREST, Ill. -- According to Mark Twain, "There are three kinds of lies: lies, damned lies, and statistics."

For our purposes, that quote should be amended to "lies, damned lies and Brian Urlacher's reactions to bad quarterbacking."

After Caleb Hanie's three-interception performance in Sunday's 25-20 loss, Urlacher said Hanie "did a good job."

"He kept us in the game," Urlacher told reporters. "If we play better defense we win the game. We were in the game late, but just did not make enough plays on defense."

No one will ever accuse Urlacher of being a bad teammate. Of all the quarterbacks Urlacher has had to cover for, Hanie certainly isn't the worst. After one start, he's definitely worthy of 54's Cover-You defense.
