Bears Defense Expects The Lefty To Start For The Chiefs

Two interesting things to pass along today regarding Sunday's matchup between the Kansas City Chiefs and Chicago Bears.

First, it sounds like the Bears defense has been telling the Chicago media that they're preparing for Tyler Palko to start on Sunday. Chiefs coach Todd Haley has been saying Palko is the starter but not everyone believes him. The Bears do, apparently.

Second, some members of the Bears defense either A.) legitimately don't know who Tyler Palko is or B.) are talking some trash by acting like they don't know who he is.

LB Lance Briggs: ‘‘It's Tyler, right? The left - we're getting the lefty.''

DE Israel Idonije: "Uh, ‘Plank-something. How do you pronounce his name?"

Unfortunately, this isn't the first time this year someone has forgotten who Palko is. Bucs DT Gerald McCoy called him "Calabaloo Falko" after a preseason game this year.
