Worrell and Peterson Get Some Credit

Back in 2005 guys like Thomas Jones, Hunter Hillenmeyer, Chris Harris and Ron Rivera made USA Today's All-Joe list, a list to give acknowledgment to those who despite not making a Pro Bowl or receiving individual awards are a big part of their success.  This year's list features three Bears all on special teams.

Special teams: Adrian Peterson and Cameron Worrell, Chicago -- Peterson leads in special teams tackles over the last three seasons; Worrell, also a good tackler, is usually the first guy downfield and not easy to block.

Special-teams coach: Dave Toub, Chicago-- Brilliant return game featured rookie Devin Hester, who scored five times. But these guys forced a few turnovers as well and kicker Robbie Gould almost never missed.
