One Day in Nashville

| July 19th, 2016

image

I sat with Noah in Nashville and watched as a man who changed the game was delivering his signature performance. Charles “Peanut” Tillman – having taken the act of dislodging the football from opponents to near artistic levels – forced four fumbles with his patented Peanut Punch.

Postgame on Da Site:

“I don’t think it’s difficult,” Tillman said after the Bears extended their winning streak to six. “It’s always on my mind. I’m very conscious of it. I speak it, I believe it, I practice it, and it happens.”

Charles Tillman never received the credit he deserved. Never. Swept up in the misnomers of “system guy” and “cover-2 corner”, Peanut found himself struggling for accolades even while dominating the league’s best receivers. They said Lovie Smith “preached turnovers”, a not-so-subtle insinuation that Tillman was more the finest pupil of a distinguished instructor than master of a skill nobody else in the league seemed to possess at even 1/100 of his level.

But it was Tillman who made Lovie. And in doing so made a mark on the cornerback position that will be remembered in Bears history with the likes of George, Butkus, the 46, Buddy Ryan and Urlacher.

Tillman wasn’t just one of the best Bears ever. He was my favorite. And I got into this gig because I love the Bears not because I’m interested in them. I still care about this team. Perhaps too much at times. For that, I can place a lot of the blame at Peanut’s feet.

There will be time to further extol the virtues of Peanut on and off the field. There will be months and months spent arguing his place in Canton. There will even be moments in late October / early November when sentimental bloggin types (cough) will call for the Bears to fill a hole at corner by reaching out to the old codger wearing #33.

But those times aren’t now.

Now I simply say thank you. Thank you, Peanut. Because on one beautiful Sunday afternoon in Nashville I got to see the best at his best. What wasnt difficult to Tillman is the lithograph I hang on the wall of my memory.

And I’ve got that forever.

    1st to say, so long Nut. You are an all time Chicago Bear. Much Respect, Peanut.

  • MB30SD

    One of my favorite bears… ever. And the first player my daughter liked.

    Best of everything in life peanut, you’ll always be a bear to me. Highest of class everywhere.

    • Swing Tackle of Destiny

      absolutely

    • willbest

      America deserves a first lady every man wants to bang.

      • Swing Tackle of Destiny

        She could be a uniter that way.

    • MB30SD

      Those people scare me.

      I’m allllll about Ivanka maings!

    “Favorite Bear I’ve ever watched. ”

    He was a treat to watch.

    But I am old enough to have watched Sweetness, Butkus and Sayers.

    My avatar speak to MY favorite.

    • Bender McLugh

      hard to beat Butkus (NTTAWWT)

  • willbest

    My heart grew 3 sizes when at the end of his video he signed off with BearDown.

    • MB30SD

      You’re the grinch?!?

  • CanadaBear

    He was my favorite modern day Bear. Hope he’s reasonably healthy.

    • You’re about to get Jericho’d

      over hourly.87 Dollars???!!!!????? I definitely want to Learn. More!!

  • Doc Nitty
    • CanadaBear

      Memory Lane!

  • BearDown100393

    Tillman made Lovie. I dunno. There was a guy on the field named Urlacher.

    • Bender McLugh

      and Mike Brown, but still, Tillman shut down the best talent at WR consistently, and better than nearly every other corner at that time

      • MB30SD

        Sniff

      • BearDown100393

        No doubt. Tillman was a great player.

      • Irish Sweetness

        That’s what I’ll remember other than the punch. He was Optimus Prime to the Megatron, and the main reason I never rated CJ.

  • beninnorcal

    He was my favorite as well. Not only as a great Bear defender on the field, but also a stand-up dude off the field as well.
    My favorite Peanut moment was one of the first times I remember noticing him, when he manhandled the ball away from Randy Moss, mid-air, in the endzone, sealing a victory.

  • MB30SD
    • Bender McLugh

      he’s wrong. flat wrong. one choice is a shit-throwing orangutang man, you know this. I DO however accept his point in a broader sense. but not this time. not this election.

      • Swing Tackle of Destiny

        Mileana plagarized Michelle’s speech. Classless. Sad!

        • You’re about to get Jericho’d

          haha, You’ve now perfected the perfect Trump style twitter and texting dialect. Own it and see if you can pull it off at work occasionally. That will be the true measure of your skill.

        • Scharfinator

          I just wonder why it is this election that everyone is up and arms about a politician stealing. Do people think this behavior hasn’t spanned generations and nations?

          Sometimes I feel like being a realist and a cynic are the same thing. πŸ™

        • willbest

          Zomg she said the same clichΓ©s. Obama and Biden have both done worse in the plagiarism arena.

          • Sactowns#1

            It’s amazing. It’s like there’s a magic force field blocking reality from Trump supporters.

          • willbest

            No, politics is war. To the extent there are rules, they apply to all sides. If Biden and Obama’s plagiarism don’t matter, neither does anybody else.

            And besides, maybe they hired the same speechwriter. It wouldn’t be plagiarism then.

          • Sactowns#1

            Please show us some examples of them stealing speeches verbatim. I would really like to see them.

          • willbest

            Bidens was so fucking blatant it ended his 1988 bid. He even plagiarized the hand gestures.

            http://wtvr.com/2016/07/19/joe-biden-plagiarism/

            And that wasn’t even his worst plagiarism, he did it in an academic publication too.

            In 2008 Obama pulled phrases from Deval Patrick 2006 speech. He even acknowledged he should have attributed it to him.

            http://www.nytimes.com/2008/02/19/us/politics/19campaign.html

            They all do it.

          • Sactowns#1

            Well in 88 I was about 8 y/o so I apologize if I do not recall this one but lets hope Trump takes the same line and steps down. And at least Biden’s speech wasn’t about work ethics and integrity. lol

          • willbest

            Its funny, and its stupid. But don’t pretend its a big deal.

  • Swing Tackle of Destiny

    pfw lists Bears on Worst 5 OL this year.

    Yes Kyle Long tweeted about it

    • Big Mike

      The grading of OLs by PFW is ridiculously terrible. The problem is it’s the only grading system out there. Bears line could be the most improved unit. Well 2nd most. The upgrade at LB is out of this world.

      • Swing Tackle of Destiny

        They were tough on Larsen and Massie saying they are Cardinal castoff losers

        • Larsen sucks. I’m still PO’d that 2 of the guys in front of him were cut (Slausen) or retired (Ramirez), so now he’s, in a best case scenario, the top backup on the interior OL (if not that he’ll be starting).

          I don’t think Larsen is an upgrade over Ducasse.

          • Big Mike

            There is something behind letting go of Slausen. It’s the only POX move that doesn’t seem to be part of a cohesive strategy.

          • Bender McLugh

            I have to think this, if only to save my sanity.

          • Big Mike

            Time will tell my friend. But WTF? Money? Cap Room? Locker room issues? None of those makes sense. A better option? no way. Slausen looked the part of being a Bear Linemen. He played hurt, changed positions, didn’t bitch. I simply don’t get it. If they’re sold on the rookie, they should want him to learn from Slausen and beat him out fair and square.

            Were they honoring a request by Slausen?

            None of it makes sense.

          • Irish Sweetness

            Yup, I wish we’d kept Slauson and drafted Henry.

          • Big Mike

            I like our picks very much. OL needs to hit on another pro-bowl level young player. Henry wasn’t there at 39. I’d still take Whitehair. 50/50 on Henry. Playing at Alabama makes a lot of players look exceptional. He’s some what redundant for the Bears if they use Umrein and if Ka’deem makes the squad. Kadeem was running mighty hard in short yardage last year. Just my opinion. I know you love you some Henry

          • CanadaBear

            JW I trust your judgement but I find it hard to believe Larsen is as bad as Ducasse. Ducasse was the worst of a not very talented line.

        • Big Mike
        • Irish Sweetness

          Tough, but accurate. I sat through all of that doco series on the Cardinals.

  • Big Mike

    Happy for peanut. Very glad he got that extra year @ $2million. Nice way to top off the portfolio. Saying a prayer that he’s managed his money well, doesn’t have CTE and can find happiness off the field.

  • Gonna miss Tillman. I wish him great health and happiness in his post-NFL life. I’d love to see him as a local media guy, but don’t know if he wants to do that.

  • Bender McLugh

    that retirement vid is damn funny

    • SC Dave

      The youngest with the spoon is the best actor. Only a trace of a smile before diving behind the island to “cry”.

  • Bobby Douglass

    I am old enough to have seen the tail end of the Butkus/Sayers years (I can’t watch Brian’s Song, there ain’t enough tissues, anywhere). I survived Abe Gibron.

    Tillman is on my top ten list. But so is Buffone, so what do I know?

    • Big Mike

      For us older guys, its hard. There are so many.

      • Bobby Douglass

        I’m curious about how the older crew see things. Off the top of my head, with no research, in no particular order, and just my favorites not my best, my top ten Bears:
        Butkus
        Walter
        Sayers
        Tillman
        Buffone
        Suhey
        Singletary
        Forte
        Plank
        My namesake.

        • CanadaBear

          That’s a great list until … No offense, obviously!

          • Bobby Douglass

            None taken!

        • Big Mike

          Not making a top ten, but guys I could see on that list Covert, Bortz, Noah Jackson,

          • Bobby Douglass

            All three worthy.

          • Cormonster

            Funny little story. A former friend of mine’s claim to fame is that Bortz knocked him on his ass with one punch. They were both at a college party in Platteville when Bortz was still playing at Iowa. My former friend was mouthing off to Bortz about something while he was really drunk. and Bortz decked him.

          • Big Mike

            I went to Platteville a couple times. Those guys are huge and mostly as tough as you might expect. Most guys that strap on pads and hit each other 5-8 hours a day aren’t really too afraid of getting hit. Makes all the difference. Any how Urlacher’s rookie season, I was there. My buddies and I are totally into the scene of hanging out in the same space as the beloved. Urlacher and Kreutz come over to our table. My buddy says straight out to Urlacher. “jesus christ man, where is your neck”. Urlacher cracks up, Kreutz is all snickering. they stayed at our table for 15-20 minutes. Needless to say we all went out and got 57 and 54 jerseys.

        • MB30SD

          Mike. Brown.

          • Bobby Douglass

            Very worthy.

        • Irish Sweetness

          1. Walter
          2 -10 Other people.

  • Bender McLugh

    1. Butkus
    2. Sweetness
    3. Dent
    4. Tillman
    5. Forte

    • Huge Bear’s Penis

      i am not old enough to remember Butkus so he would be off my list and replaced by Lach. Also not as big of fan of Forte, so he would be replaced by Waddle – it seemed he caught everything and could take a big hit.

      hmmmm….. that would be interesting scenario, Waddle covered by Tillman who would win?

      • Big Mike

        Waddle? WTF.

        • Bender McLugh

          he outran Deon Sanders for a TD.

          • Big Mike

            As a favorite, I get it.More heart than 99% of NFL players. Deion must have had a Conte style angle or figured no way this slow ass dude is running by me.

          • Bender McLugh

            yep, Deon totally underestimated him and took a bad angle, Waddle said CYA PUNK!

          • Big Mike

            Waddle every slow small kids last hope to be a ball player

            Get Outlook for iOS

          • Bender McLugh

            I don’t wanna get Outlook for iOS, jeesh Mike pushy pushy

          • Big Mike

            fucking microsoft. I didn’t know that was on there. I use outlook for ios on my ipad.

      • CanadaBear

        Waddle would never catch a pass! Peanut would have been in his slow-ass pocket all day!

        • Big Mike

          I don’t think he would..

        • Huge Bear’s Penis

          I was 10-15 years old when he was playing so it is probably a lot of nostalgia/dumb kid memories. just like you old guys remembering the “glory” days when they players still wearing leather helmets,

          • DaCoaches Mustache

            Waddle sucked.

          • Irish Sweetness

            WTF?? Toughest receiver I ever saw, by some way.

        • MB30SD

          hahahaha, agree

      • MB30SD

        agree on forte. good back, but in the scope/scheme of our history… meh.

      • Big Mike

        Who’s the QB. Waddle would have a hard time, because Tillman never took plays off. He also was a great student of the game, so he’d have done his homework.

        • Bobby Douglass

          QB? Luckman? Jimmy Mac?

          • Irish Sweetness

            Dude ….

    • Big Mike

      if this is a favorites list I have one list, if it’s the best 5 I have another list.

      To be honest, Tillman has a hard time making my top 10 favorites. No knock on Tillman. I just never appreciated the secondary.

      I can’t even make a top five favorite list, because there are so many Bears that I appreciated tremendously. If I did make a list, it would probably be Butkus, Singletary, Urlacher, McMahon and Devin Hester. But there are 10 more guys that might be in my top 5 tomorrow. Wilber Marshall, Hampton, McMichael, Bortz, Covert, Kreutz, Suhey, Brown, Fencik, and so on.

      • Bender McLugh

        SUHEY! 3rd down machine. I met Fencik while in college working at Boston Chicken in Lincoln Park. I said something stupid to him about making the greatest INT I’d ever seen, he said thanks and asked if I was going to take his money or what.

      • Bobby Douglass

        I should have read farther!

      • MB30SD

        fucking hogs! you’re all bloody blunt instruments mike! ; )

        • Big Mike

          Like I said. Tillman’s not on my list, because the secondary was full of flag football players in my book. πŸ™‚

          Seriously, I just never appreciated secondary play until a bit later in life. My first year as a d-coordinator I was like WTF do you guys do in practice.. Do you practice chasing guys around or what? I had a guy who was a all state HS safety, teach me how to coach DBs from drills and skills, to angles and schemes. I still usually bring a guy in as a d-coordinator who has a DB background. Just not my thing.

          • MB30SD

            SMH… it’s all math, science, and pure physical athletic ability maings. Skillz to pay dem billz.

          • Big Mike

            Flag football πŸ™‚ .

            Guys at safety are just mini linebackers, Corners are wide receivers who can’t catch. (at least that’s how I slot them on my teams).

            All good. Just playing. Appreciate it now. I just remember coming off the practice field feeling like I’d been run over by a mack truck and the fucking guys in the secondary went on and shot hoops or dicked around. I went to the ice tub and the trainer for 2-3 hours.

    • Sactowns#1

      You got those first two all wrong.

    • SC Dave

      Good list.

  • Swing Tackle of Destiny

    If I am a producer at FSN, I can’t be on the phone fast enough to Peanut asking if he wants to be a segment guy for the shows.

    • willbest

      Tillman was doing a weekly segment with JD in the evening a couple years ago, and he said its fun to do every now and then, but he said if he had to do it regularly it would feel like work. So I think we will probably hear from him a couple times so he can talk shop and get the word out about whatever philanthropy he is working on, but I wouldn’t expect to hear him on the regular.

  • CanadaBear

    Butkus, Sayers, Sweetness, Peanut, Mike Brown. All great players, all stand-up guys.

  • Sactowns#1

    Sad to see so many of our guys decide to retire only after nobody offered them a contract. Lach, Tillman, Briggs. Do they need the money that badly or did they truly just not want to give up the game? idk

    • BearDown100393

      The culture is changing. The new generation will play 4-5 year seasons and call it a career. It is already happening.

      • EnderWiggin

        Calling it quits right after the rookie deal? Nah

    • willbest

      A man needs to feel valued. It doesn’t just happen in sports. Tillman would be going from the top of one career to entry level in another. Its not easy. I know a lot of men that do not handle retirement all that well for that reason. I imagine it has to be even worse in your 30s.

      • Sactowns#1

        I can imagine it would be a little tough. I mean these guys have been doing pretty much the same thing every day for 15 or so years. But the writing was on the wall for all three and I would have preferred to see them go out at the end of a season instead of slowly moving off into the shadows, hat in hand.

        • MB30SD

          hat in hand with millions in the bank and as many endorsement deals in Chi as they can stomach. Sheeeeite, I’ll take that route any fucking day in the end.

          None of those guys have anything to feel badly about. I would have retired one year earlier if I was lach and sidestepped that whole last off season mess… and I would have voluntarily retired at the end of his last season as a bear, even though he had a pretty damn strong season at panthers.

          Other than that, retire at 30 with what I assume is millions in the bank… jes pleece

          • CanadaBear

            Hindsight is 20/20. Both Lach and Briggs fell off a cliff. It went fast. I’m guessing both of them weren’t happy with their last year in the league. Peanut’s was more gradual but he couldn’t stay healthy. Don’t feel bad for any of them. I’m also a big fan of all three of them (on the field). Big fan of Peanut off the field.

          • MB30SD

            agree… hard for a 30 year old perennial probowl meathead to admit it’s over. Still, I’d take that exit any day over slogging in the salt mines like the rest of us poor assholes.

          • CanadaBear

            Fuckin’ A!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Big Mike

      For Urlacher it feels like it was respect and not wanting to be done. For Tillman, it felt to me like he wanted one more payday, plus not wanting to be done.

      • MB30SD

        he had a decent year last year.

        • Big Mike

          It was, but you could see he was getting by on football IQ. Which he had plenty of. No.. this was the right time to get out for him.

          • MB30SD

            agree

      • CanadaBear

        If Peanut was healthy he could still play. The other two guys were totally done.

        • MB30SD

          yup

        • Sactowns#1

          You mean if Peanut could keep his muscles attached to his bones.

          • MB30SD

            yes, that’s exactly what he meant

          • CanadaBear

            Exactly! He still had his wheels and moxie but the body was breaking down on a regular basis. That’s why all the calls for him to go to FS were so insane.

        • Big Mike

          For a guy in the secondary its the same thing. Soft tissue injuries happen. Old people don’t recover from them. It would be a fluke if he made it 4-5 weeks into the season without being hurt.

  • Sactowns#1

    The fact that you give a speech about hard work when never knowing a day of hard work in your life is laughable but straight up stealing a speech about hard work is perfect. These people have no idea what work is. lol I mean it was so blatant, was it just an early test to see how dumb and blinded by hate his supporters are? http://www.cnn.com/videos/politics/2016/07/19/melania-trump-michelle-obama-speech-similarities-side-by-side-sots.cnn

    • BearDown100393

      Stealing is just another example of how to make ‘Murica great again.

    • beninnorcal

      Who cares? I’m no Trump supporter but why is this a big deal? To me, as a voter, the fact that pretty much everything that comes out of Hillary’s mouth is a lie seems like a way bigger issue.

      • CanadaBear

        Not sure about the Hilary comment (trust me, I’m no fan) but I agree her speech is a total nothing. My favorite part of the speech was when she talked about him being loyal. So says the 3rd wife!!!!!!!!!!

      • Political fact checkers have found that Trump lies far more often than Hillary. Per Politifact, which has won a Pulitzer for political fact-checking, Hillary’s lie/truth ratio is right in line with Paul Ryan, Obama, and Bernie Sanders, just to name a few prominent contemporaries. They all tell the truth ~ 50% of the time, fudge the truth a bit ~35% of the time, and lie ~15% of the time (give or take).

        Trump, on the other hand, tells the truth ~10% of the time, fudges the truth ~30% of the time, and lies ~60% of the time.

        • willbest

          Data, you should fucking know better. Politifact doesn’t check every statement nor they do select them at random. They review the ones they want.

          • You can refute it all you want, but you cannot honestly tell me you think Hillary lies more than Trump.

            The Washington Post fact checker also found Trump lies at a much higher rate. And they choose claims to check based on reader requests: https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/fact-checker/wp/2016/07/15/trump-versus-clinton-the-pinocchio-count-so-far/

            Those are all the fact checkers I know of. Other ones I’ve found (NY Times, Factchecker.org) only review specific claims, don’t have an aggregate sum that I’ve seen. Do you have any others to recommend?

          • To be clear, I’m not saying Hillary is great. She’s a typical politician.

            But Trump is catastrophically bad, and Hillary therefore looks fantastic in comparison to this particular opponent.

          • Irish Sweetness

            It’s like saying a dried turd looks better than a steaming fresh sloppy one though.

          • willbest

            I can honestly tell you that. For one thing, there is a distinction between lying and saying something that is untrue. If your adviser tells you X, which isn’t true, and you repeat X, that isn’t a lie unless you know it isn’t true. None of these politicians have the time to really dive into what they are saying. FFS they don’t even read the bills they pass. They are too busy play acting and fundraising. So they all constantly spout off untruth, and even then most of the time its a figure being used in misleading way.

            Now that is out of the way. Hillary is a confirmed liar. And not only that, she lies about classified e-mails, Benghazi, and a bunch of other things that require 2 years of FOIA litigation to discover rather than what some guy doing some Google and Lexis searches comes up with. Like real things, not just campaign bullshit.

          • Sactowns#1

            Not like George W Bush. That guy only told a handful of lies which cost tens of thousands of lives. But you keep voting for the regressives.

          • willbest

            Outstanding find. I completely forgot how little Bush was involved in this year’s election. Did you know this is the first time in 40 years a Bush isn’t at the convention.

          But he’ll create jobs. Good jobs. Increase military spending and make the whole world safe, and he’ll do it by lowering taxes … and money will be free … everyone will have marshmallows for pillows … and children will each get a pony …. and angels will come down from heaven and sing heavenly songs to send folk off to sleep at night … and –

      When MSNBC had to turn off the live chat because it descending into hate speech against Jews, you knew it was gonna get ugly. My favorite comment about the Jewish hate speech was, “It’s like you guys aren’t even trying not to be Nazis.”

      • Sactowns#1

        Canada, Trump supporters will tell you “That hate speech is nothing compared to the hate speech of Obama and BLM” or some other claptrap to avoid any and all responsibility.

          There’s plenty of jagoffs on both sides and I’m no fan of Hillary but I will take business as usual in Washington over this shit show.

          • Sactowns#1

            I think we all know I was a Bernie guy, and I still hold out the slimmest of hope he will be the VP. So no, I am no fan of the corprocrat Hillary. But I will take someone with experience selling hope over someone with zero experience selling hate and fear.

          • MB30SD

            I agree with this, aside from the selling hope part… she selling bullshit and refuse. She’s a fucking corporate DC sandbagging POS… BUT… like you said, she knows how to run in the machine and she’s not a total fucking immature hatemonger.

            Erra time I hear that buffoon trump speak he sounds like a 6th grader cutting down his schoolyard enemies. honestly, it’s completely fucking embarrassing that this clown is running for the president of the free world. Fucking A, crazy trac might be right, the apocalypse is neigh!

            I just pray that guy doesn’t get elected. I predict it would cost me over $100k in losses in property and the stock market. Our economy would tank the minuet he got elected. So lets all collectively pray it never happens and we can all go back to our regularly scheduled program.

          • MB30SD

            not convinced of that, the machine will just keep churning. Like brexit… AHHHHHH THE SKY IS FALLING!! LOOK AT WHAT HAPPENED TO THE STOCK MARKET TODAY! AHHHHHHHHHHHHH!

            Oh, wait, a couple weeks later and it’s higher than ever?! Oh, it’s all just a shell game for the rich to get richer? Oh, ok, well then whatever, it’s all the same shit then.

          • CanadaBear

            It’s like when pols say the economy is going great because of the stock market. Uh no. It means stock holders are doing well and that’s all.

          • Big Mike

            Brexit is a ripple next to a trump presidency. At the same time it’s quite possible that it would be entertaining as all fuck and he really wouldn’t be able to do any of the stupid shit he proposes.

          • MB30SD

            exactly. the machine will always maintain the status quo

          • Big Mike

            I just want Bill to be the first lady and get caught again getting blown in the WH. πŸ™‚

            Stocks for British companies have not rebounded and the weakened pound means some British companies are getting snatched up by the likes Of Sofbank.

          • MB30SD

            sure, there’ll always be the fall guys, but the machine my maings, the machine will keep rolling

            They always had control of their currency, and now they have complete autonomy from the EU slavers. Smart move. Their exports are cheaper too. We’ll see in five years.

            Brexit doomer are you?

          • willbest

            You only lose if you cash out. You are in your 30s you aren’t cashing out.

          • Johnnywad

            You should probably sell now then. Just in case.

          • Big Mike

            I think she is slightly better than what you portray. But I think you are dead on. I don’t know why people bag on her for making money to give speeches. Doesn’t make her a sell out. It makes her a capitalist. It also doesn’t mean she’s in wall street’s pocket. She might skew that way a bit. But she’s not going to tank the fucking economy, because she got a big payday while she was a private citizen. Here’s my take on Hillary. She’s a terrible candidate. She’s awkward with people, her enthusiasm comes across as phony. She is however pretty good at running things, or being an elected official. People in NY hated her at first, but most of my buddies up there, thought she was a pretty good senator. Her time as Secretary of State nobody blew up the world, the Benghazi thing was horrible. But she knew embassy security was thin. She requested a bigger embassy security budget at least twice.

    This is my favorite quote so far concerning Peanut’s retirement. This is from Jason McKie, “Since my boy @peanuttillman is retired.. Im going to punch him every time I see him. Payback all the Peanut Punches he gave me at practice.”

    • MB30SD

      hahahaha…. that would be funny as fuck if every single bear he ever sees from here on out does that shit back to him.

      • CanadaBear

        You just know that Peanut hit those guys in the arms and torso at least as often as he hit the ball.

        The 2nd video needs some serious editing. Way to slow paced.

  • Huge Bear’s Penis

    Did Peanut retire as Bear? I haven’t seen any reports that he signed a one day contract or any of the sort, would have been nice if he did.

    • Big Mike

      I think that type of ceremonial thing comes a bit later.

      • willbest

        Bears need a Den of Honor or something to place all their great players over the years since they can’t afford to retire numbers.

        • Big Mike

          They really do. Guys like Tillman, Hester, etc.

          • MB30SD

            Hester. : /

  • Swing Tackle of Destiny

    Brian Williams on NBC said that it was actually Michelle Obama that plagiarized a speech HE wrote in 1992.

    • willbest

      haha

  • willbest

    So I saw the rick roll video and really the only question is
    1) Did the Trump campaign do this on purpose
    2) Did the speech writer go rogue
