I thought that many viewed him as "promising" as recently as a year ago, but it seems to me that he has turned in a subpar season thus far. Are the safeties a big part of the reason we are giving up so many big plays? I read this quote from an opposing scout, and was wondering if you guys would agree with any of it: Chris Conte spends most of his time hanging back and waiting for balls to come his way. He is a poor tackler and a worse cover man. Once teams figured that out, he was exposed and, quickly, terrible. Bears must find a replacement for Conte or else forget about 2013 season. Conte is either too slow or can't react quickly enough to make plays on the ball. Look at other safeties around the league- they defend the pass better than Conte, and are usually more physical as well. The Bears have to find better safeties..
