Wilson off the hook for penalty

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Bears special teams coach Dave Toub absolved Rod Wilson of blame for the holding penalty that nullified Danieal Manning's 89-yard kickoff return against the Seahawks.

''He was doing what he was coached to do,'' Toub said. ''It could be called a hold. It could not be called a hold. It's the judgment of the referee.''

But it's not going to change the way the Bears block on kick returns, Toub said.

''We're going to keep blocking. Were going to be aggressive. We're going to finish our blocks,'' he said.

Wilson said he was a victim of circumstance.

''I'm guilty of being the guy they pointed out,'' he said. ''Do I think it was holding? I could have had better leverage on the guy. From his [vantage point] I saw what he saw. But from where I was, it's a [borderline call].''
