Just ask Bears middle linebacker D.J. Williams, a longtime star since his days as one of the most highly recruited players out of De La Salle in Concord, Calif. That high school program is the subject of the movie "When The Game Stands Tall" - currently playing at a theater near you and based on a book of the same name by Chicago sportswriter Neil Hayes.
The Bears' 28-20 come-from-behind victory over the San Francisco 49ers was a game for the ages, but that didn't make the review of the game tape any more pleasant. The reason the win was so impressive is that the Bears were so bad for the first 40 minutes, they appeared to have dug a hole impossible to climb out of.
Jeffery is rather straightforward. He was off to a blistering start to the 2014 campaign with 71 receiving yards in the first half against the Buffalo Bills , but he missed the second half of that game with injury.
In 2003, the Chicago Bears selected Charles Tillman from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette in the second round of the NFL Draft. They acquired more than just a ball hawk cornerback that has molded himself into one of Chicago's best defensive players, in a franchise built on prolific defensive talent; but were rather graced with a leader, both on the field and in the locker room, and an ambassador for the Bears organization.
The rookie cornerback made a big impression by picking off Colin Kaepernick twice to help the Bears rally from a 17-point deficit in a 28-20 victory at San Francisco on Sunday night. "I'm definitely trying to enjoy that, but at the same time I'm starting to get my mind ready to get ready for next week," Fuller said.
Matt Forte is usually one of the most reliable fantasy football options in the entire NFL , although he didn't really play the part in the Chicago Bears ' showdown with the San Francisco 49ers in Week 2. Forte only tallied 21 rushing yards on 12 carries and truly struggled to get any traction against a typically stout San Francisco defense. Unfortunately for Forte and the Chicago rushing attack, two starting offensive linemen missed Sunday's contest , which clearly hurt Forte's chances at finding holes.
Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall beat Jimmie Ward on a fade route for the last of his three TDs against the rookie CB on Sunday night. Any guesses which one-on-one matchup the Bears consistently exploited in the red zone en route to a 28-20 come-from-behind win at Levi's Stadium on Sunday night? Congratulations! You guessed right: On each of his three touchdowns, Marshall was lined up in the left slot against Ward and, predictably, it wasn't a fair fight.
Heading into Sunday night's game against the 49ers, the Bears were already dealing with a litany of injury issues, forcing weekend roster shuffling and game-time decisions involving their star players. They endured even more throughout the course of the game, losing three starters, yet showed grit and resolve to gut out huge a 28-20 win and spoil the first ever game at Levi's Stadium and even their record at 1-1.
Phil Emery's job two summers ago was to fix the offense. He did so by bringing in four new linemen, Martellus Bennett, and getting a breakout season from his 2012 second-round pick in Alshon Jeffery.
This is the live blog for the 49ers' Week 2 game against the Bears. I'll update this frequently with information and analysis from the press box.

Patrick Willis is a seven-time Pro Bowler and six-time All-Pro, but he still has fair amount of unfinished business. In an interview airing tonight on NBC's Football Night in America , the inside linebacker said he's driven to win the ultimate team award and receive the ultimate individual honor before he finishes his career.
For the Bears, Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery are both ACTIVE for today's game. Both were working out before hand and seemed to be doing OK.
The Chicago Bears will help break in the new home of the San Francisco 49ers , Levi's Stadium, Sunday night at 7:30 on NBC. When the two teams met in 2012 on Monday Night Football, the Bears defense singlehandedly put the then-backup quarterback Colin Kaepernick on the map.
The Chicago Bears don't play until Sunday Night Football, so there won't be any official word on whether Brandon Marshall or Alshon Jeffery is out until after all the day games have started. There has been a report that there is a 75% chance neither plays .
