Brian Urlacher has thrown his backing behind quarterback Josh McCown to start for Chicago Bears ahead of the returning Jay Cutler against the Cleveland Browns.

The former Bears man said: "It's going to be awfully hard to take Josh out of there right now the way he's playing.

"In my opinion, he should be the guy. He should be the starting quarterback for the Bears, even if Jay Cutler is healthy. You can't take a guy who's this hot out of the football game."

Urlacher played with Cutler in his final four seasons in the league, and there is believed to be bad blood still lingering from that period.

The two were once involved in a training ground bust-up, according to the linebacker Urlacher.

When speaking about departing the Bears, Ulracher said:

"Well, I did not hear from Jay, out of all the guys I played with, but that's just -- maybe we weren't as close as ... we could have been".

Cutler is the likely starter in the showdown against the Cleveland Browns as they look to take advantage of their opponents' bad run of form. The Browns have lost four in a row heading into the encounter.
