03:53 PM ET 10.22 | Detroit Lions' wide receiver Nate Burleson says that his team is prepared to play against the defense of the Chicago Bears on Monday Night Football. Burleson, in an interview with the Afternoon Saloon show on ESPN Chicago, does say that the Bears' defensive unit has great chemistry and is very well coached: "The reason they're so good at what they're doing is because they have to run the same defense. They have that chemistry with the unit of guys that are together. The coaching staff knows their players and puts them in the right positions to be successful."

Check inside their hat. That's where they found a victory over the Eagles last week.

What are they supposed to say?

"Uh, we're not ready. Can we maybe play the game Wednesday night instead?"

Well,its near the end of the 4th quarter now, but I have to say---no, they weren't ready for the Bears.

Not the prettiest game of the season, but it's a "W".

Yep. Wretched night, too.

Nate should have slipped on a bar of soap before the game, now he's going to spend most of the winter and spring at Millers Bar and down those double doubles with extra cheese fries and rings!!! Poor Guy!!!
