Peanut Tillman Doesn't Have Time For Math As Packers Propaganda

An area teacher received a surprise from Bears cornerback Charles "Peanut" Tillman recently as a result of the teacher's attempt to educate his students. The teacher gave his students the following math problem to solve:

The Packers play the Bears 4 times in two seasons. The Packers, being a much better team have an 80% chance of winning each game. What is the probability that the Bears win all four games?

What is the probability that the Bears win at least one game?

One of the teacher's students took the assignment to Tillman, who was promoting his Cornerstone Foundation at a runner's store in the suburbs owned by the student's father. When handed the math problem, Tillman offered his own answer, albeit one not rooted in hard math:

Mr. Amrein,

This is Charles "Peanut" Tillman of the Chicago Bears and I'm shocked that you would have a problem like this for your students. The probability that the Bears would win in my opinion is 100%. Please do not and I repeat DO NOT send them home with math homework that is disrespectful to our team, city and our beloved Chicago Bears.

P.S. Bear Down

This is why Tillman is one of the most likable of the current crop of Bears players.

Now don't ask us to do the math.
