LM: Who impressed you most in last Sunday's win over the Panthers?
|Julius Peppers had two sacks in last Sunday's 23-22 comeback win over the Carolina Panthers.|
LS: "Kellen has caught big passes before, but when you make a special play like that to help lead your team to a win, you have to remember it. But it wasn't just that play.

LM: What does it say about the character of a team when it's able to win a game after not playing its best like the Bears did against the Panthers?
LS: "It says that you're a good football team because only good football teams can win games when they don't play their best ball for an extended period of time. You also have to have some guys who have been through it because experience teaches you to hang in there. When you're not playing your best, you have to keep fighting because it is a 60-minute game, and that's something we always preach to our players."
LS: "Chris Johnson is one of the best running backs in the league, so you have to look at him. We've played against Matt Hasselbeck a lot of times and he's been one of the best quarterbacks for a long period of time. On the other side of the football, Kamerion Wimbley is a heck of a rusher on the outside and Michael Griffin is also a heck of a player. They have good personnel, and playing a game on the road is always a challenge."
