1 MIN READ - The Chicago Bears will temporarily install a seven-foot tall Brian Urlacher bobblehead from 7 a.m. on Oct. 24 until 3 p.m. on Oct. 25 in the Loop at The Gateway (on State St. between Wacker Dr. and Lake St.) with the support of Chicago Loop Alliance.
The Urlacher bobblehead is one of 13 that will be appearing around the city throughout the centennial season; 10 of these bobbleheads represent giveaways that will be distributed to the first 20,000 fans per home game to enter the stadium at any gate (see schedule below). Made in America out of high-density foam, each of the seven-foot bobbleheads weigh between 150-200 pounds and feature a head that bobbles.
In his first year of eligibility, Urlacher, who played for the Bears from 2000-2012, became the 28th player in franchise history to be selected for induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2018. Urlacher played his entire 13-year career with the Bears, appearing in 182 games with 180 starts, the third most by a Bears player in franchise history at the time. He won NFL Rookie of the Year honors in 2000 in addition to being selected to eight Pro Bowls and winning NFL Defensive Player of the Year honors in 2005. The Bears advanced to the playoffs four times during the Urlacher era and enjoyed their finest season in 2006, when the Bears went 13-3 and advanced to Super Bowl XLI. His 22 career interceptions are tied for 11th most in Bears history and tied for second among linebackers with Dick Butkus.
