Seahawks receiver Mike Williams seemed to surprise the Bears when he caught 10 passes for 123 yards in the Seahawks' 23-20 victory at Soldier.
Cornerback Charles Tillman, noting that the Bears did not sack Matt Hasselbeck in that game, is hoping the Bears can put more pressure on Hasselbeck this time.
''It would be nice to get a sack this game on Hasselbeck,'' Tillman said. ''You can't throw the ball if you're on your back. So definitely we want to get a lot of pass rush going on and things like that, hopefully that can [disrupt] the timing between him and Mike Williams.''
Defensive backs coach Jon Hoke said pressure will help, but it'll have to be a team effort.
''We'll have a better feel for him after playing him once, that's the biggest thing -- understanding what he's trying to do,'' Hoke said. ''But we just need to play better. We didn't express the defense the way it needed to be expressed. We just didn't play well. We didn't play with the energy that we're capable of.''
Williams had 65 receptions for 751 yards and two touchdowns this season. He had just 13 catches for 97 yards (7.5 per catch) in the last six weeks, missing two games with an injury. But he had five catches for 68 yards and a 38-yard touchdown in the Seahawks' upset of the Saints last week.
"You could say that," Bears coach Lovie Smith said when asked if limiting Williams was a point of emphasis. "He had a career day against us last time. Mike is a good player. You have to respect what he has done as far as being out of the league a couple years and working hard to get back in and now playing at a level he thought he could play at all along. We can't let him have another day like that. If we let him have another day like that we'll lose."
