|Following their big win against the Lions, the Bears take a seat in the examination room.|
What has gotten into cornerback Charles Tillman? It's difficult to find ways to measure it from a statistical standpoint, but generally speaking, Tillman has played two great games against Lions receiver Calvin Johnson this season. Johnson did beat him for a 40-yard play in the third quarter Sunday, but Tillman more than held his own. He dislodged the ball from Johnson's hands on what would have been a long touchdown pass and later pushed through him for an interception he returned for a touchdown. Tillman turned 30 this year, and you wondered how much longer he would be the Bears' No. 1 cornerback. But if the Bears trust him to spend most of a game locked against an MVP candidate, I think you have your answer.
