Brian Urlacher Enshrined In The Pro Football Hall Of Fame

Lakers News: Terrell Owens Thanks Kobe Bryant In 2018 Pro Football Hall Of Fame Speech For Setting Gold Standard

It's all starting to feel real for Brian Urlacher.

When giving his Hall of Fame induction speech in Chattanooga on Saturday, former National Football League wide receiver Terrell Owens said he skipped the ceremony in Canton because of sportswriters.

"What I wanted to be able to express with my tie is to let these families know that they're not alone", Moss said of his tie during an appearance on NFL Network.

Urlacher grew up in Lovington, New Mexico, played at UNM and was drafted by the Bears where he played his entire career. "I'm here tonight to pay respect to the men and women who made this all possible".

"Football is not who I am", Moss said.

The only coach Urlacher mentioned was former Bears linebackers coach Bob Babich, who introduced him.

"Football did not define me", Urlacher said.

"If he could believe in me, I could believe in me", Kramer said about Lombardi.

"Everyone I have spoken about tonight is family", Urlacher said.

Each focused as much on their faith as they did on their careers and the impact their faith had in bringing them to this moment.

"Because I did not get here by myself", he emphasized.

"It's simple. I'm always striving to do more", he said. "And after all these years, I'm at home". "We are eight of 318 of the greatest players to ever play the game, and that's truly awesome". He is a 13-time Pro Bowler, seven-time first-team All-Pro and two-time NFL Defensive Player of the Year (2000 and 2003), and helped lead Baltimore to two Super Bowl titles (2000 and 2012), earning MVP honors in the 2000 season's game. The greatest is tough to single out, but no pass catcher was more impossible to guard man-to-man. One ambitious traveling contingent included six fathers and sons who arrived Thursday for the Bears-Ravens game, drove Friday to Pittsburgh to see the Pirates play at PNC Park, returned Saturday to Canton for Urlacher's big day and pegged Sunday to catch an Indians game in Cleveland.

After acknowledging his other coaches, Dawkins turned to his parents, his four children, and his wife, Connie.

Moss received his gold jacket Friday night in OH, at the Canton Civic Center.

He tended to ramble a bit and get lost several times in what exactly he was saying. From beginning to end, the crowd was hanging on every word that came out of T.O.'s mouth during a mostly heartfelt speech.
