The NFL announced today Bears cornerback Charles Tillman has been named the NFC Defensive Player of the Month for October after helping lead the Bears to a 4-0 record.
It’s telling that before being named NFC defensive player of the week in consecutive games for his performance against Jacksonville and Detroit, Charles Tillman had not been recognized for his work since 2005.
For the second time in three weeks, Bears cornerback Charles Tillman has earned Defensive Player of the Week honors.
The picture below pretty much sums up Tillman’s coverage of the league’s highest-paid receiver.
With Monday Night Football, comes extra attention from the entire country. In Brandon Marshall’s case, he loves it.
Coming off their first postseason appearance in 12 years, expectations are high in Detroit, but are they justified? That’s debatable.
In most cases, the team’s best or most important player is usually its quarterback. In this piece, we will look at the eight most irreplaceable non-quarterbacks in the league.
The NFL becomes more of a passing league every year. Here are the top 10 fantasy football options at wide receiver.
Greg Cossell of NFL films recently put together a ranking of the top five wide receivers in the league.
Matt Bowen of The National Football Post and Chicago Tribune said Peppers’ first hit on Johnson essentially took the wide receiver out of the rest of the game.
In this video, you can see as Johnson abruptly changes directions at the last second and misses the tackle to avoid getting laid out by Peppers.
It’s been brewing since the Monday night game last month. In fact, the kindling for this fire was sparked with Calvin Johnson’s non-catch in the opener last year. The Bears and Lions don’t like each other and Sunday it boiled over.
Regular season games don’t get much bigger than this one.
With the Packers moving to 5-0, it’s imperative that the Bears get a win tonight in Detroit. A loss would leave two undefeated teams at the top of the division. Plus, both of those teams at this point would have tie-breakers against the Bears. Even if you think that winning the division is a fantasy, there’s still the issue of the wildcard. If the Bears want to be in that conversation, a win is essential. Here’s what I’m watching in this pivotal matchup:
As the Bears offense struggles to find its identity, CBS Sports football analyst Boomer Esiason thinks the Bears should just stick to what works.
As the Bears head to Detroit to take on the undefeated Lions as the nation watches on Monday Night Football, head coach Love Smith isn’t buying the hype that this is a “must-win” game.
Matt Bowen of The National Football Post and Chicago Tribune thinks the Bears Cover-2 defensive scheme may be the way to stop the 6-foot-5-inch receiver who has eight touchdowns through the first four games of the season.
Among changes for the next NFL season, whenever that is, are more suspensions for illegal hits, and possible adjustments to instant replays and kickoffs.
The Bears are looking for their fifth straight win as they visit Detroit. They made their mark as a top NFC contender after defeating the Eagles last week and the Lions are starting their third string quarterback. If the Bears continue to play as well as they did against Philadelphia, this could be an easy win.
The Detroit Lions have two wins this season. One of their many losses came against the Bears in week one. Despite that and a much more improved Bears team, Lion’s receiver Nate Burleson has guaranteed a win.
