Time for a Brian Urlacher nickname contest

We had this post all ready to go, and then it was swallowed up by the evil powers that be. And now we can't get the photo server to work, which is a shame because this is a great picture of Brian Urlacher.

That said, with Urlacher seemingly out for the season after dislocating his wrist -- no word on whether he attempted to catch a wayward Jay Cutler pass on the sidelines. You might say "impossible! All of Cutler's passes were thrown directly to green and gold jerseys!" but you're wrong -- we want to give him a nickname. See, while he isn't classically injury-prone (he's played all 16 games most of his years), Urlacher seems like the kind of guy who is nicked up all time. And now this.

So: we like "The Crystal Horse."
