While the Chicago Bears came out on the short end of a 21-15 decision to the Packers, sixth-round draft pick Al Afalava again looked like a keeper. Listen to what Afalava told Bear Report in the locker room at Lambeau Field in Green Bay after the game in this exclusive audio feature.

John Crist: Everybody talks about the speed of the game from college to the pros. Did you see a difference in the speed of the game from preseason to the regular season?

Al Afalava: Oh, yeah. I did. It was a lot faster than college or the preseason. The vets told me it's going to be a little faster than preseason, and it was.

Be sure to listen to the rest of JC's interview with rookie safety Al Afalava, an exclusive for Bear Report subscribers ...
