 LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) - Charles Tillman was asleep when President Obama gave him a big shout out on ESPN.
It's one of the few times he wasn't locked in.
The star cornerback has been turning heads everywhere with his play, even in the White House, and so have his teammates on the Chicago Bears' defense.
A group that came into the season with some question marks is supplying plenty of answers and leading the way for a team that's 7-1 heading into Sunday's showdown with the Houston Texans.
A big part of that is Tillman, the guy Obama touted for defensive player of the year during an interview aired Monday night.
The praise came after Tillman forced four fumbles in a 51-20 blowout of Tennessee the previous day.
