About this Article

The numbers don't favor the Bears against an explosive Packers offense that can move the ball through the air or on the ground, but coordinator Mel Tucker's defense can regain some respect if it can shot down quarterback Aaron Rodgers. "Coaches can only take so much blame," said Charles Tillman, who is tied for the team lead with 3 interceptions and 2 forced fumbles. "At some point in time, some of that blame has to go on the players, and I take full responsibility for my group not playing well."
