Since the end of last season it seemed destined the LB Hunter Hillenmeyer was just starting until they can find somebody better to step in. He has has a pretty solid season so far and had his best game as a pro against the Saints, so I thought I would throw props his way when he showed up on the Chicago Sun-Times Hits and Misses column.
Hunter Hillenmeyer, Bears linebacker: Judging by his play this season, the Vanderbilt product is more than just a stopgap, complement-to-Urlacher, insurance-policy linebacker. His knack for big plays can't be ignored. Had a sack, an interception and a pass breakup against the Saints.
