Four Bears spent the weekend in Hawaii representing the NFC in the Pro Bowl. They lost 59-41, but no one was hurt and everyone had fun. That's all that matters, right? How did the Bears do? Well, we'll tell you.

Charles Tillman: Peanut is the Bear who best represented the team. He starred early on special teams, when the NFC tried an onside kick and Tillman was the man to recover it. Later, he broke up a touchdown pass and caught a lateral from Clay Matthews, who had just picked off Ben Roethlisberger.

Julius Peppers: Pep caught the next lateral from Tillman, but then fumbled it. It was pretty much his most memorable play of the game. This was his seventh Pro Bowl, so we'll forgive him for not playing all out.

Matt Forte: Every time Forte was handed the ball, I resembled the mother of a child trying out the monkey bars for the first time. "Just be careful, Matt! Don't get hurt!" I have a feeling this sentiment was also felt at Halas Hall. The good news? He didn't get hurt. He didn't do much, either. He had one catch for four yards, and two runs for six yards. On one of those runs, he was stopped just short of the goal line, which was a familiar sight for Bears fans.

Corey Graham:
The special teams star was burned on a touchdown, and didn't do much else. But he did have fun in Hawaii, and that's what counts most.
