No. 3 wideout <!--Default NodeId For David Terrell is 722209,2003--><A HREF=[PlayerNode:722209]>David Terrell</A> finally got the extensive playing time on Monday night that has mostly eluded him during three inconsistent seasons with the Bears.

He made the most of it with a game-high seven receptions, which tied his career best, although they netted just 48 yards.

Terrell, however, did nothing to change a common perception that he's an immature head case. After picking up five yards on a first-half reception, Terrell taunted the Packers' defense, even though the Bears trailed 24-9 at the time. Packers players noted as much, pointing out the scoreboard to Terrell.

On the next play, the physical and emotional Terrell was called for holding during what would have been a 60-yard TD run by Anthony Thomas.

"It was a bad play, but he's a very aggressive guy," coach Dick Jauron said. "That's what we like about him. He came in there with the intent to block. He probably didn't get under control quickly enough, and the player started to get away and he pulled him down. That's it. There's not a whole lot more to say about it. It was clearly a big play. It was close to the point of attack. I don't know if it affected the play, but it was close. I certainly have no argument with the call."
