Rodgers: "Urlacher was my favorite player to play against"

In an interview with CBS Sports' Jim Rome, Packers QB Aaron Rodgers praised former Bears LB Brian Urlacher, calling him "his favorite player to play against."

"I just have the utmost amount of respect for him, the way he plays the game," Rodgers told Rome on Wednesday. "A lot of memories come to mind. He picked me off a couple times, maybe more than anybody else has. But I had one really bad play in the NFC Championship [after the] 2010 season and was able to somehow grab his knee/thigh area enough to trip him up for a tackle [and prevent a touchdown]. One of my favorite memories going against Brian."

I can see why he says this. Urlacher was a good player.
