on Bears defense:
"They have a solid defense, from their safeties to their front, to their linebacker. They have what I consider the best linebacker in football in Urlacher. Brown is a tremendous safety. They have a great defensive front. They don't have a weakness on defense in my mind. We have our hands full."
on road success (eight straight wins) vs. Bears:
"We're going to go down there against a team that wants to beat our butt. If we rely on any psychological advantage, we'll be sadly dealt with. ... This is the Bears. This is a new season. We're a new team. They're a new team, even though there are familiar faces. You have to prove yourself every week in this league. I don't know if there are a lot of pyschological advantages whenever you travel on the road, to be honest with you."
