Heading into last week's game against the Broncos, the Chicago Bears' linebackers sounded pretty confident in their ability to contain quarterback Tim Tebow and Denver's offense. On Sunday, the Bears' defense squandered a ten-point fourth quarter lead and lost to the Tebow-led Broncos.
So, following their 13-10 defeat, the Bears' stayed classy — or not.
"What Tebow did wasn't anything special," said defensive end Julius Peppers. Well, if leading five comeback wins in eight games is nothing special, then yes, Peppers hit the nail on the head.
Chicago's middle linebacker Brian Urlacher added, "He's a good running back." Well, 48 rushing yards isn't exactly "good running back" material, but he sure is a versatile running back. I could be wrong here, but I think Sunday was the first time in NFL history that a running back completed eighteen passes in the closing minutes of a game. We'll see if we can get that confirmed.
In response to Urlacher's comment, Tebow did stay classy. "Coming from a really good player, that means a lot," said Tebow following the game.
