    There really isn't much to talk about, but honestly, the emotions that Peanut showed on the sidelines after his injury solidify my belief that he LOVES this game.

    I don't know if that was his last game ever, but I'm pulling for him! He is without a doubt my favority Bears. He's the closet person I can think of that displays the same attitude and heart that Walter Payton did.

    Let's just hope that the Bears find a way to remember Tillman... this dude is still on special teams!! He's done everything they have asked for.

    What else could you want in a player? This guy battled Randy Moss at his peak all game long. Twice a year.

    He is without a doubt the most under rated CB in the league.

    If we continue to play well, I hope that they find a way to either keep him or bring him back for finals (assuming he can play). Getting a ring has been and still is a longshot, but what a great gift to be able to give him...

    They were talking to Zaidman (maybe Biggs) who saw what happened on the sidelines.

    He looked like he knew what it was, when the doctor confirmed, he put his head back, screamed and pounded the bench with his good arm. Briggs came to console him.

    I hate to say it, but that might he all for him.

    Great player, even better man.

    Zaidman said only way they can is to keep him on the 53 man. No IR, no injury settlement.

    They may not have that luxury. He could be cut and then resigned I suppose.

    We all knew it was bound to happen or at least I was expecting him to miss games this season. It's a bloody shame it happened so early in the season and then a season ending injury..
    Not only did he face Randy Moss, he have also shut down Megatron.. underrated as fuck.

    This is a damn shame

    @ZachZaidman: RT @caplannfl: The #Bears are planning on placing starting CB Charles Tillman (triceps) on season-ending injured reserve, a source said.

    So sad.....a great career could be and quite possibly over with such a little meaning less play, shows that it really could have happened anytime...So I guess he can help coach Fuller more closely now? Damn....Does this mean Briggs is next?

    I feel for Tillman. I was hoping that it wouldn't be season/career ending.

    Thank you for all the years Peanut!!
