2013 Stats over/under: Charles Tillman

USA TODAY Sports

Charles Tillman had a record-setting 2012 season. Will his 2013 season fit his Pro-Bowl form? Let's look at some stats and set some over/unders for the man with the Peanut Punch.

Charles Tillman is one of the post-Brian Urlacher faces of the defense, along with Lance Briggs. Tillman has quietly been doing his work for over a decade now and he's worked his way into the hearts and minds of Bears fans with his hard play, fun-loving personality and big heart raising money for charity.

Tillman has had two of his best season the last two years and finally began getting national recognition in the form of Pro-Bowl votes and an All-Pro nod last year.

For his career, Tillman owns most of the Bears' DB records; he is the career leader in defensive touchdowns (9), pass deflections (126) and forced fumbles (37), third in interceptions (33) and fourth in tackles (according to pro-football-reference.com, 704). He has averaged 3.3 INTs a year, 3.7 forced fumbles a year, 12.6 pass deflections a season and 70.4 tackles a year.

Entering his 11th NFL season, Tillman has big expectations to fill despite being age 32. Fans are expecting to continue to see the dominant, shutdown Peanut with the devastating punch out and shutdown skills that stop Megatron in his tracks. The team will likely hope to see another year of production because behind Tillman the depth chart is shaky without a ton of youth. Tillman will want another top season because he hits the open market at years end and will want one last payday.

So, keeping in mind his career averages, let's set his over/unders:

Interceptions: Over/under 3.5

Forced Fumbles: Over/under 5.5

Pass deflections: Over/under 13.5

Tackles: Over/under 70.5

Defensive touchdowns: Over/under 2.5

Side bets:

Games with multiple forced fumbles

Number of yards he holds C. Johnson to (total for two games, last season it was 106)

First QB he picks off

Odds he breaks Jason Taylors career forced fumbles record (47)

So set your overs, unders and odds. Is there something you would add?
