Two thoughts.....
1. Never interview Archuleta, maybe he will just go away.
2. Our DBs are not good enough to play single coverage.
3. Most good quarterbacks and coachs will pick the Cover 2
apart. it's basically the prevent defense.
IMO scrap the Cover 2 next year, find better skilled DBs, but that would mean getting rid of Smith as coach? The Cover 2 is all he will ever play.

Ok, get rid of Smith!

the bear fans really need to stop giving the excuse that they miss mike brown and nathan vasher.

Mike brown hasnt played alot in the past 4 years. He is a slow, small safety who cant cover anyone.

Nathan vasher= 5'10 180 and a 4.67 40 yard dash at the combine. He is terrible and the only reason he had 9 interceptions that year is because of the pressure of the front 7. Your secondary sucks, has no talent and no speed. Never was the bears secondary the reason for your success. It is one of the worst units in the nfl.

bears lack overall speed in the back 4.

My excuse is that I miss the Tank, but that's a mute point. The Bears do have a chance to pull it together. It all depends on Luvie. BTW - Vasher is better than you think he is.

The ENTIRE defense sucks!

1.Urlacher is washed up.

2.Tommie Harris will never fully recover from his injuries.

3.Bye bye Lance, you're not earning your keep.

4.Hunter who?

5.D-line is almost as week as the O-line. Ok, maybe that's a bit cruel.

6.Cover 2? Bears DBs can't cover 1!

7.Never thought we'd miss Ron Rivera
