Charles Tillman, CB
On the play of the first-team defense tonight
"We just wanted to come out and start fast and getting a turnover on the first play is the best way to start fast. I'm pretty happy about our performance."
On if Kevin Malast should get the game ball for helping the first-team defense off the field in one play
"Yes, I recommend him getting the game ball if we win this game. I thought it was a great job on his part, being tuned in and that was a key first play. It was a great move on his part. He did a nice job filling in for Brian Urlacher."
Greg Olsen, TE
On it feeling good scoring a touchdown
"It's nice to end the preseason on that note. You go out there and get a few plays and get a little workout in. The preseason is now wrapped up and we're getting ready for Detroit now."
On the play of QB Todd Collins
"I think he did a good job. It was tough - he didn't get many practice reps other than this week. He was kind of a late addition to this team - obviously - but he's a veteran and he has been in there before. I think he did a really good job."
On if he is going to have fun in this offense
"I think I am. I've had a great time this offseason with the different things that we've implemented, the things that we've played in and during practice moving around and such. I've had a great time learning the offense and I think everyone else has too."
Brian Urlacher, LB
On if he'll play in the season opener
"I'm going to play against the Lions. September 12th."
On what he believes the first-team defense will be like during the season
"I think we're going to be good. Once we're all together and healthy during the September 12th game (versus Detroit) we're going to be good. I think we're going to get a lot of pressure on the quarterback and hopefully a lot of takeaways."
On what he looks to learn from a fourth preseason game
"I just want our guys to stay healthy, No. 1. You see a lot of the backups that we'll have during the season playing tonight and you just want them to stay healthy and tomorrow we'll see who is on the team."
Todd Collins, QB
On his first game with the Bears
"It was pretty comfortable on most things. The formations and play-calling, some of them I wasn't as sharp as I needed to be, but overall I thought it was a pretty decent effort other than the mishap we had on the shotgun snap."
On what happened on that snap
"I wasn't sure about the formation, there was some confusion, so with one second left I tried to call a timeout, but I was mid-cadence so the center [Josh Beekman] you can't fault him. It was just an unfortunate incident."
On his comfort level running this offense
"Philosophically, I'm very comfortable running it. I just need to sharpen up on some things: the blitz reads, and the formations, getting the plays out quicker and things like that."
Lovie Smith, Bears Head Coach
On the first-half playoff the offense
"We did a few good things. Some of the mistakes, losing the clock a few times that hurt us a little bit. We moved the ball, but we're just kind of killing ourselves late."
On the first-team defense getting a takeaway on the first play of the fourth preseason game two years in-a-row
"We want to see that next week. That's what we're preaching. We've got to take the ball away. They did a great job tonight."
On the overall performance of the first-half
"Right now we're playing decent ball. We're playing good ball on the defense side of the football. We'll get a chance to evaluate some of the players. The second half is big for a couple of guys."
On the importance of this game for some of the players on the bubble
"Our back end guys are getting a lot of reps tonight showing what they can do. Hopefully they can make a couple of plays and make us put them on the roster."
