The Chicago Tribune today talks about how new Bear Orlando Pace says NBC color man Chris Collinsworth misquoted him on playing shorter guys:
Bears left tackle Orlando Pace sees no reason to panic about getting beat a couple of times Sunday night by Broncos linebacker Elvis Dumervil, even if one analyst believes it has been an ongoing problem for Pace. After the 5-foot-11-inch, 248-pound Dumervil nearly sacked Jay Cutler in the end zone on a second down, NBC color commentator Cris Collinsworth said: “When we talked to Orlando Pace, he said he has trouble with shorter guys because ‘As I get older, I have trouble bending over.’ ” Pace denied making such a statement. “I just told him I have to bend my knees more because I’ve always had that problem, being that I’m a taller guy,” the 6-7, 325-pound Pace said. “I didn’t say I have a problem with littler guys. “[There’s] no concern. It was just a few plays where I have to do my technique a little bit better.”
