"Peanut, Peanut, Peanut" is all Bears linebacker Lance Briggs could say after the Bears 51-20 win over the Titans. Tillman did what Lovie Smith asked and set the tone early, forcing his first of 4 Titan fumbles on Tennessee's first offensive play of the game.
"We're all seeing history being made" Briggs insisted, "I've never seen anybody do what he's been able to do so consistently." Tillman now has seven forced fumbles on the season, for the Bears 28 takeaways this year. Julius Peppers chimes in - he's never seen anything like what Tillman is doing. ""No, No, I've never seen anyone have a season like this." Brian Urlacher joined in with his first interception return for a touchdown in four years, the Bears 7th pick six this season. Eyeballs were popping too. "The ball was just coming out" Defensive Tackle Henry Melton said, "the looks on everyone's faces when it was happening was like 'what is going on'"
The Bears defense forced five Titan turnovers, four fumble recoveries and an interception -- but Peanut Tillman they say sets the tone. "Today was just amazing" Melton laughed and shook his head.
