Hillenmeyer comes up big

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.
