6th in a 10-part series
Charles Tillman could not say his ninth NFL season was his best and it very well might not be. After a while, they're hard to sort through when you've been a consistent performer.
But the veteran cornerback was selected to the...

I can't describe how spectacular the Bears defense was in nearly shutting out the Lions. I don't know if anybody can. But running down that unit's heroics Monday night should be stunning enough.
In the first quarter, with the Lions third-and-1 at their...

Ndamukong Suh had the knockdown of the night when he rocked Jay Cutler on a sack in the second quarter.

Surely, the running backs coach was referencing the career-high 205-yard rushing game Matt Forte had just completed, emphatic proof that, yes, this offense can move the ball...

The Bears played a bad game.
Lucky for them, they faced a worse team.
The ineptitude of the Panthers was just about the only thing that kept the Bears’ season from ending. They couldn’t afford to fall to 1-3. I don’t think they could&...

Caleb Hanie was bad. Awful. Sometimes egregiously horrible.
But then, what’d you expect from a guy who hadn’t thrown a pass all season?
Hanie threw three interceptions and so many other bad passes against the Raiders. High, wide, low, you...
