Chicago Bears cornerback Charles Tillman has one year left on a seven-year contract and who is still at the top of his game.
However, at 32, Tillman knows next year anything could happen, so he’s in a ‘in the moment’ mode and he says so is the team.
In the NFL rebuilding projects do not last five years and if a team doesn’t win now, chances are someone will get the chance the following year.
The 11 year veteran understands this could be his last season in Chicago, but then again it could be for a lot of players.
So in the spirit of living in the moment, he says he and the team are in a ‘win right now mode.’
“My goal coming into this league was to play 10 years. Anything after that was truly a bonus,” Tillman said, via Fred Mitchell of the Chicago Tribune.
“I’m happy with my career. I am happy with what I have done in the great city of Chicago. Is this my last year? I don’t think so. Maybe after the year I will evaluate my options with the Bears and with other teams and how my body feels ... if I still want to play.
“That’s how I am approaching this season. [General Manager] Phil Emery made the decision to hire a new coach so this coach could take us in the direction. My role as a player is to buy into that system and do whatever I can to help this team to win a Super Bowl. I think myself and the rest of the players have bought into coach [Marc] Trestman’s scheme and his system and we want to win and we want to win now. We’re not in a rebuild mode. We don’t have time to rebuild. We’re in the winning now business. The win RIGHT now business.”

So it comes down to this, the direction of the Chicago Bears franchise for the next five years comes down to Jay Cutler's contract year. If Cutler falters the Bears can completely blow up the roster and go 180-degrees in a different direction and the team will look completely different a year from now. If he finally lives up to the expectations of a franchise quarterback...
Chicago Bears receiver Brandon Marshall feels if the team had a tight end of Martellus Bennett’s caliber in 2012, he wouldn’t have needed hip surgery.
The constant double teams took a tool on the receiver’s body.
He feels that Bennett and his speed adn athletic ability will command a lot of attention and keep opposing secondaries from rolling their coverage to his or fellow...
The Chicago Bears are a difficult franchise to forecast. The team is only partially in a rebuilding mindset while it’s also obvious that some of the pieces for a solid football team are in place. Even so, one of the Bears’ greats isn’t back, and now, he’s hoping his former team doesn’t go and win a championship without him. “I’m still rooting for them,” Bears...
Brian Urlacher recently told Dave Dameshek of NFL.com that he’d pretty upset if the Bears won the Super Bowl this season.
Mike Ditka is now telling Urlacher to be thankful for your time in the league.
“My advice would be to put it behind you,” Ditka said. “Brian has been such a great player for the Bears and an ambassador for the team. Not many guys get to play 13 years...
It sucks to see it happen. Guys retire from a team that they have been synonymous with for years--that they basically made their name with--and within months are bashing their former team. Tiki Barber wasted no time doing it when he retired from the Giants, and got roasted for it by the media and fans.
So after hearing some comments from newly retired Chicago Bears linebacker...
Earlier in the week, Brian Urlacher told NFL.com’s Dave Dameshek that he would be “really pissed” if the Chicago Bears won a Super Bowl this year without him.
A former Bear himself, Mike Ditka had a few words for Urlacher.

I am able to catch the ball; Iam willing...
Just about the only thing Brian Urlacher didn't do on the Chicago Bears was capture a Super Bowl championship.
In an wide-ranging (read: rambling) interview on the Dave Dameshek Football Program from the American Century Celebrity Golf Championship in Lake Tahoe, Calif., this week, Urlacher said he's rooting for his former teammates to win, but not wholeheartedly.
