Charles Tillman has been a part of the Chicago Bears his whole career. Charles Tillman is one of those playmaker defensive backs that forces turnovers, most notably forcing fumbles. In fact, I can think of two games in the Chicago Bears-Green Bay Packers rivalry that Charles Tillman clinched on a forced fumble. So it doesn’t surprise me that Charles Tillman takes exception to anti-Bears math problems. Somehow, someway, Tillman received a math problem (pictured above) about the Packers domination of the Bears. Tillman’s response is the following:
This is Charles “Peanut” Tillman of the Chicago Bears and I’m shocked that you would have a problem like this for your students. The probability that the Bears would win in my opinion is 100%. Please do not and I repeat DO NOT send them home with math homework that is disrespectful to our team, city and our beloved Chicago Bears.

The Chicago Bears-Green Bay Packers rivalry is one of the better rivalries in sports, let alone football. And since both teams have Super Bowl aspirations this season, the rivalry is going to intensify over the course of the season. Now, the rivalry has been pretty one-sided as late, with the Packers having the upper hand. Between losing to the Packers on Week 17 in 2011 that allowed Green Bay to reach the playoffs, and then losing the NFC Championship at Solider Field that same year, Bears’ fans hate the Packers more than ever.
I, as a Packers’ fan, hope Mr. Amrein continues with these excellent math problems. Actually, I have drawn up a new problem Mr. Amrein can ask: Chicago Bears cornerback, Charles Tillman, is guarding all-Pro wide receiver, Greg Jennings. Jennings is really good, while Charles Tillman is good at forcing fumbles. If MVP QB Aaron Rodgers throws to Greg Jennings 10 times over the course of a game, and average catch to target ratio is 40%, how many catches will Greg Jennings have? And how many will he have on a broken leg?
In all honesty, I think this is pretty funny and harmless.
Well done, Peanut.
