Having a healthy secondary and possibly moving Corey Graham to nickle means the guys up front might get more sacks and the Bears can use more of their blitz packages. The Bears need to win at least 3 of the next 5 games to remain a contender. The three road games after Detroit and Tennessee at home will make or break the season. If they can stay healthy, it should be fun to watch. I think each of the next 5 games will be decided by 7 points or less.

Actually Lovie Smith started it.

He said he voted for Obama. So he's going to have to take a beating for supporting a socialist-marxist.

How about making Graham the starter and making Vash the nickel back? That way, you got a guy who can tackle on the field for all 3 downs and the Interceptor on the field on passing downs only.Might make too much sense, and of course, Vash is making the big bucks.

Agree with Will from Peoria -- start Graham. Vasher, since the big contract last year, has not shown any interest in tackling or playing a tight corner. Graham has a tremendous upside in coverage and taking on the run. Put Vasher at nickel and then hope you don't have to play nickel very often.

About time these two "chandelier" CB's are back. They are decent cover CB's but Vasher has forgotten how to tackle. These guys are creeping up to Mike Brown territory.....miss just as many as you play.
