Charles Tillman will enter his 12th season with the Bears when the 2014 NFL season begins.

The veteran corner has racked up the accolades throughout his tenure, but only one goal truly remains.

Winning a super Bowl.

Tillman was on the 2006 Bears team that lost to the Indianapolis Colts in Super Bowl XLI. Since that time, the Bears have only reached the postseason once, and it ended in an NFC Championship loss to the rival Green Bay Packers at Soldier Field in 2010.

Although the Bears had a subpar 8-8 season in 2013, and are in the midst of a rebuild on the defensive side of the ball, Tillman doesn't see any reason to count out Chicago next season.

"I haven't had the luxury of putting a championship ring on my finger," Tillman told The Game 87.7 FM on Monday. "And I just know if Chicago were to bring one back, I would want to see 10 million people on Michigan Avenue, that's what I would want to see.

"I've seen various pictures of the 1985 championship. The Blackhawks winning the championship. The White Sox winning the championship and the Bulls winning the championship. Why not us? Before I leave for another team or retire, I want to get a Super Bowl. To me that's the ultimate goal right there. Next year 2014, why not us?"
