The Bears certainly have been opportunistic this season, tied for the league-lead with 17 takeaways despite playing just five games.
So the question raised today at Halas Hall was this: Who has the best hands?
"I don't know who has the best hands," Lance Briggs said, "but whoever has the best hands, I'm definitely top three. I can tell you that much.
"I'm No. 1. I just never get around the ball," Urlacher said.
Informed that Briggs ranked himself in the top three, Urlacher asked, "Which guys did he put ahead of him?"
Informed that Briggs didn't say, Urlacher quipped, "I'm putting myself in front of him."
Urlacher doesn't have a pick yet this season but the Bears have a league-best 13 interceptions. Tim Jennings leads the way with four followed by Major Wright with three.
Remarkably, the Bears have scored five defensive return touchdowns this season.
That isn't by accident, Briggs said.
"We have a score chart for our defense with a point system. Everybody wants to get on that board." said Briggs, who has scored twice this season. "Everybody wants to lead that board and break records on that board. When you see other guys scoring you love it because to us it's Bears scoring, but you want your opportunity. And when you're opportunity comes, you want to make something happen."
