He is a constant voice of reason and insight after and in between games, win or lose, and for that reason cornerback Tracy Porter has been voted as the winner of the fourth annual “Good Guy Award” by the Chicago Chapter of the Pro Football Writers Association of America.
Porter, who gets the entire corps of defensive backs together Thursday nights at his house to talk football and watch film together, “has been one of the Bears’ best players on the field and in dealings with the media,” said Dan Pompei, first vice president of the PFWA.

“The Chicago writers appreciate that he is consistently available, and he treats his media responsibilities professionally. In a season when it has not always been pleasant to face questions, Porter could be counted on for thoughtful answers. He should be a model for young players to follow.”
