    Absolutely too soon. Tucker may or may not be a good coach, but you can't judge him on half a season of coaching guys who were old, injured, and/or not talented. Buddy Ryan at DC wouldn't be able to turn this crew into a decent unit with its best player (Briggs) out, its second best player (Peppers) MIA, its third best player (Tillman) constantly injured and unable to play a complete game, its fourth best player (Melton) out for the year, half a dozen other guys dropping out any given game, and nobody who can play safety.

    When everyone was healthy we still presented no D, no pass rush, no tackling. Only the secondary were making plays. The same crappy safety were making plays last season.

    Tillman got injured in the season opener and has been battling 1-2 injuries per game. Peppers has done next to nothing this year. Melton did jack squat when he was healthy, though that may have been because he missed the whole preseason with a concussion. Of course, despite what some say, Urlacher was still an impact player last year, so him leaving cost them, too.

    A safety's job is much easier when the front four is getting pressure, but when there's no pressure, safeties get exposed. As for tackling, we always had issues with guys missing tackles because they were trying to punch out the ball. Our tackling might be worse this year, but that's likely just chance and not Tucker teaching them an incorrect way to tackle.
