The core of the Bears defense - Lance Briggs, Brian Urlacher, Charles Tillman and others - has been described widely as an aging unit. But these decorated veterans have performed like young and restless defenders most of this season. Briggs demonstrated his speed and agility Monday when he ran the width of the field to chase down Eagles quarterback Michael Vick. "I always take a lot of pride in that. And I think we should change [old] age to 'vintage.' I tried to do that earlier in the year," Briggs said Thursday.
