    Are we really that bad off in Secondary at Safety?

    We may be better off then we thought.

    M.D. Jennings 56 tackles
    Ryan Mundy 50 tackles

    Look at the tackles by player on the whole Secondary team.

    Who would you want to keep ?

    The reason Conte had so many tackles is that the Bears front-7 was about the worst rushing defense in the NFL.

    Thats true but who stepped in to cover that ? The guy we all hate.

    I'm going to bat for Conte ... his numbers prove that.

    He got tossd the ball in his direction when the DL collapsed ...

    under the circumstances he did the best he could.

    I'm not a Conte fan ... but he earned his stripes.

    73 solo tackles leading the secondary ... C'mon man.

    I didnt know he did that until I looked it up.

    I almost agree with jackie. Almost.

    Yes, Conte looked worse than he otherwise would have, b/c of the shitty D line in front of him, and his play would probably not have stood out as horrible under "normal" circumstances. But: The weakened front 7 exposed his shortcomings in a big way. Do I think we can win w/ Conte playing? Yes. But I would also love to see an upgrade at the position, and hope that one of the guys on the roster is that upgrade. If not, then hopefully we spend a high draft pick on the position next year, or bring in a f/a. My opinion.

    Hey I hated the guy after he whiffed in the playoffs and gave G.B. the playoffs.

    I wanted his ass gone. But until we have what we need at Secondary he was the best we had last season.

    I'm defending a guy that I want to cut !

    But the numbers are everything. I cant cut 73 solo tackles.

    But that was more about the front seven being horrible than him being all that good. But I will say this much. When a Safety needs to make that many stops his pass coverage is gonna suffer and it did.
