I think the pedestal they've been put upon is a little overboard.



While the unhappy Niners coach was willing to concede that the Bears' defense was fast, he bunched them with Baltimore, Pittsburgh and San Diego in this class.

Nolan also went on to say that there "probably are more talented defenses in the league, but they're talented, don't get me wrong."

Well, that's big of him.

Not exactly a rave review of a Bears crew that led his by 41 points at the half.

Nolan sounded a lot more distressed about his own team's play than he did impressed with the Bears' play.

"I don't want to take anything away from their good group," Nolan said. "But I don't want to give them credit that's undeserved."

I see. Maybe if that final score had been 51-10 or 61-10, eh, coach?

So how about you, Antonio Bryant, fine wide receiver for the 49ers? Was this the best defense you have faced?

"No," he said. "No."

I see. Well, I suppose there must be a better one out there in the NFL somewhere.

"Who's better?" Bryant asked. "I'm going to leave that up to you all to answer that. I'm not a critic."
