Cornerbacks aren't typically among the team leaders in tackles, but Bears CB Zack Bowman is tied with LBs Brian Urlacher and Lance Briggs for the team lead with 16 through two games. PFW spoke with Bowman at Halas Hall this week. We discussed Bowman's favorite Chicago baseball team and Brian Urlacher's on-field persona.

PFW: I know you were at a Cubs game not too long ago. Is that where your allegiance is when it comes to the two baseball teams in town?

Bowman: Well, in Chicago you're either a Cubs fan or a Sox fan. I live up north, so everybody up there is a Cubs fan. Wrigley — they call it the Friendly Confines for a reason. It's (very) friendly down there.

PFW: Have you spent much time in the bleachers?

Bowman: No, underneath the overhang. That's all I need. Some shade.

PFW: Has the difference Brian Urlacher can make for this defense become even more apparent over these first two games?

Bowman: This is my first year playing with Brian. Practice and stuff is a lot different from the game. In the game, he's very intense. Very locked-in. Very focused on what he needs to do. If you need to pick it up, he'll get on you about it, and that's one thing I like about him. He's not going to sugarcoat out there with you. If you mess up or do something wrong, he's going to let you know.
