Roy Williams has never exactly been quiet leading up to games, but he always seemed to have a few little nuggets leading up to when the Lions would face their divisional-rival Chicago Bears. The two teams square off this weekend in Chicago, but Williams has been shipped to Dallas. And Brian Urlacher is sad.
"He got us fired up every week, I'll tell you that much," Urlacher told the Detroit media via conference call. "He was fun because he always was running his mouth. But I'm sure he's not too mad to be where he's at right now."
Yeah, Brian, and I'm pretty sure the Lions don't miss Williams unnecessarily amping up the opposing defense. It's easy for people to sit behind their computers and proclaim, they are professional athletes, they don't need extra motivation! Yet here it is, right from the horse's mouth. One of the league's premier defensive players feels like there's a void this week without Williams' taunts.

So, without this extra little push, the Bears will only win by, what? 20?
Damn, I miss Roy, too.
