Re: 2012 Chicago Bears!

said by jsinaiko:

Urlacher was great as a player, but I never much liked the guy. As a player he was under-sized for his spot and wasn't a great tackler. And his attitude was at best annoying, at worst just stupid.

I always thought Urlacher was kind of an asshole. You think he's undersized? 6'4 260 is a pretty big guy.Assuming those stats aren't padded. He used to have speed but he seems to have lost that. I agree though. Time for him to go. 12 years in the NFL is a long time for anyone but at linebacker it's an eternity.

Tucker is highly respected - J-ville is just a bad team. Tucker is experienced with both the 4 - 3 and the 3 - 4. He knows the Tampa 2 and other defensive sets well. And the Bears retained both their secondary coaches. My hope is that an over-the-hill Urlacher will be gone. Time to start over in front of the 4 D-backs.

Do you think his age and now physical short comings outweigh his onfield decisions? He'll make mistakes like anyone else out there, but he's one of the more intelligent MLB IMO.

He hired Mel Tucker from Jacksonville as the DC? He obviously didn't see any Jacksonville games this year. Hopefully it was more a talent issue than a shitty coach issue.

Crazy. These guys are crazy. Huge football nerds - Emery & Trestman. I love it and I can't wait until the coming season!

I really don't think we have to worry about Timmy coming here. I like Trsestman. We'll see.

His press conference is at 11am. I'm sure he'll get asked a lot of those questions.

I think their focus will be on more scoring and decent D rather than dominating D. As the NFL is gearing toward more offense with rule changes, etc. teams seem to be more offensive minded. IDK what will become of our D. I def. do not want to see the Tampa 2 anymore. Garrett Wolfe had an interview on the Score yesterday morning and played under Trestman. He said he was a "players coach" like the last dipshit but he said Trestman gets involved on both sides of the ball. This guy better have the mental attitude and be prepared for the frusrated and sick of losing Bear fans.

I don't think I've heard anyone say that they thought Tebow was a good quarterback in the last year. There are some pretty shitty QBs out there though so he may be better than a couple of them. I certainly don't think he's better than anyone we have right now.

AHHH stupid media is linking Trestman and Tebow. Just stupid media talk but I swear, if some divine intervention happens and the Bears obtain Tebow I'm burning all my fan gear.

Trestman is known for being a quarterback specialist running the west-coast offense. Trestman also called the plays himself. I would say the quarterbacks on the roster better be prepared to hit the books. Literally. In Monteal, protection for the quarterback was top priority so the running back had to be a good blocker. Of course that was with an aging Anthony Calvillo.

Anyway, he is not a defensive specialist. I am going to say that he will leave that side of the ball to whomever he hires at the defensive coordinator. Plus, Trestman will not meddle in personnel matters with the GM.

Maybe he'll keep Marinelli and just let him run the D. Or maybe they'll just change the whole defense. Guess we'll see.

While the O may improve, what about the D? I'm sure he doesn't share the same philosophy as Lovie. Lovie was able to keep our aging D among the best in the league every year. Maybe we should bring him back as our D coordinator

Only time will tell huh? He has a good history. Hopefully soon our offense can get out of the basement in rank. Even if we have to suffer a few seasons it is better than watching a Lovie offense.

The guy has a very nice resume. From reading around Reddit, almost everyone has stated this guy is a very offensive mind. I've also read around that the CFL is a pass-heavy league. Take that for what it's worth. I, however, feel that he would be a great fit in Chicago. I feel the same way about Dennison from Houston.

I don't really know anything about the CFL but I assume winning a few championships there is a pretty good accomplishment. Guess we'll see if it's true or not soon. His tweet is all over the news and sports sites now so I'm guessing Emery will need to respond one way or another at some point.

He is the CFL head coach whose name has been floating around. Didn't think he was on the Bears list. I don't know much about him myself, other than him winning some CFL bowls or whatever they're called. This a good hire guys?

I find it funny that ESPN posts information about where Lovie is going/interviewing. Who gives a fuck? The guy was fired for a reason, and a good one at that.

God I hate ESPN with a passion. It's like a Sports-TMZ.

Right. Good luck to him - maybe he'll do better under different circumstances.

They said on ESPN radio yesterday that Lovie was interviewing with Buffalo this weekend.

I agree. First reasonably good GM since Vanisi and Dave Tobin did it - and they were curtailed by the Halas's who ran the team at that time. Seems as if George McCasky is different and actually cares about winning, as opposed to his Mom who just like those nice young men.

It was a good time to do all of this. The Bears are worse than they appear. The D will need a major overhaul - Urlacher is history, or I hope he is, and the D line is about to break up. The secondary seems OK, but the Bears have very little bench strength or depth on D.

As we all know the O line is awful - and is the lynchpin of any good O. After all, the first drafts that really put the 85 team together were Covert and Van Horne, two great O linemen. Bears need more receivers, a healthy #2 RB, an almost compete revamp of the Oline (Garza seems OK, and they say Karemi is still a bit hurt and will be much better next season, so that leaves a TE and a couple of down linemen to get).

Lovie was such a players coach, nobody's gig was at risk no matter how brutal they were, so it was really time to launch him. He was an OK coach and will probably do OK elsewhere. But his stock was all sold here - time for a new look.

I like Emery. If you watched his press conference, the guy really seems to know his shit.
You can listen to the whole thing here. It's pretty long but very informative.

McCoy gets an interview on Sunday. Emery has already interviewed a bunch of others. I am encouraged.

Not official but he is eligible for interview since the Broncos have a bye week. I am glad he is not the head coach anymore. I liked what he did with our defense but look at the offensive ranks over the years. I know the O line sucks and Angelo did not do his job that well but it is what it is. I would like to see a more offensive minded head coach since the league kinda favors that. Even though it is not all his fault having 2 seasons finish like that and going 1-8 against the Pack since 2009 is not good. I would like to see Billick.

That was fast, I'm sure the writing was on the wall since the horrible loss to Philly. The blame goes all around the horrible O line, WR with butterfingers, Hester just not running straight up field when receiving the ball.
