    Brian Urlacher has been a Bear for long enough to know how big Monday's game is. The team is 2-0, they're playing on Monday night, and it's the Packers. It's about as big of a game as you can get for the third game of the season.

    But his main goal? To enjoy the game. After being out last season with a wrist injury, Urlacher has rediscovered how fun playing football can be.

    "I'm having fun, man," he said. "There's so much communication on every play. Everybody's having fun."

    Winning is always fun, and for a Bear, nothing is more fun than winning over the Packers. Urlacher has had big games against the Packers before. In 2007, he had a pick-six, running back the interception for 85 yards for the touchdown. He has 126 yards in interceptions against the Pack, and 123 tackles.

    This Monday, he'll have another chance to have fun. And another chance to win.
