NFL analyst Ray Lewis called in on ESPN Radio's Mike and Mike in the Morning Show Friday morning.
Lewis (at the 5:04 mark) talked about Sunday's game featuring the Bears and Steelers and raved about the "remarkable ability" the Bears defense has to create turnovers.
“You know the one thing about the Bears that people really don’t understand about their defense, is that defense has been in place for years," he said. "And that’s the one about playing like a defense for so so long … You know what your strengths are … and know what your weaknesses are…"
"When you watch [Charles] Tillman. When he makes those plays … it’s not he creates some of them … he really does. But sometimes he’s in the right place at the right time. And as a defense that’s what you really want to do. If they make a mistake it’s going to cost you. And when you watch the Bears defense, that’s what happens. When offenses makes a mistake which they will over a course of a game. Because every offense does … they will be in a place to make a [play]. And that speaks volumes about the how long and how well they [the Bears] can play a certain type of defense."
The Bears and Steelers will kickoff on Sunday at 7:30 p.m. on NBC.
