Urlacher makes impact in different ways

This is by Mark Potash. I'm just posting it.

While most of Brian Urlacher's impact was obvious Sunday in his first game since suffering a season-ending injury in last year's opener, some of it was not. Urlacher's play-calling also played a role. It was his call to have Lance Briggs blitz when
Briggs stripped Lions quarterback Shaun Hill and recovered the fumble at the Lions 1-yard line.

''He makes a lot of calls out there and puts guys in great position to make plays,'' defensive tackle Anthony Adams said. ''Sometimes things come up where you didn't practice for it or it's not what you saw on film. Urlacher can change who's blitzing and who's dropping back in coverage. His presence is definitely felt back there.''
