Mel Trucker's record as a Defensive Coordinator has been: 2013 30th, 2012 30th, 2011 6th, 2010 28th, 2009 23rd. His record speak for itself. The Bears defense this year will be fortunate to rank as high as 23rd. Da Bears released Peppers and Hester signed Houston and Hixon, moved McClellin to Linebacker and signed DE Young and FS Mundy. As it stands right now Da Bears are back where they left off at the end of last year plus the return of Tillman.
