    It's like the division is trying to give us the title this season - and we're so bad on defense we can't take it. How incredibly sad is that?

    yeah, I said the same thing. The Lions keep trying to give it to us and we won't take it. 2 TD's nullified by penalties. Sorry, but as much as I like Trestman, these are on him and this is the second week in a row that penalties have been stupid high or cost us some momentum. I think that having those nullified just takes the wind out of your sales. Of course, not being able to stop anything resembling a run does not help either.

    I can't remember the last time we had the division basically gift-wrapped and handed to us to win. And here we can't take it, because we stink so bad on defense. This season should have been an absolute cake-walk to the division title due to Green Bay losing Rodgers, and Detroit now stumbling. And the Vikes are pathetic. Yet we are no better. Pretty tough year to accept.

    We would rule the division by now if we just had an average NFL defense. I think we could get to average defense next year if we replace safeties and upgrade the DL.

    At this point, I'm not sure I would want the Bears to make the play-offs; the elimination would be humiliating and I just don't think I could handle all the sports talking heads laying on their verbal tripe about not being a functional team. Even though that's not the case. I like what Trestman has done for the offense. He just needs to get to the next level and show an interest in the defense. Be a complete Head Coach and not just 'leave it' to the coordinator.

    That's what Lovie did with the offense.

    And that may be what happens. I know he was hired to give the Bears a viable offense and that's been his focus. Solidifying the scheme and playbook probably remains his first priority. Nobody expected him to have the WHOLE team under wraps in just a couple seasons.

    Sorry gentlemen but I am riding this out though 16 games ...

    a loss at this point in time doesnt count us out.

    Look at what Detroit,Green Bay and Minnie did today.

    Granted we are down to one starter on defense but thats never stopped us before.

    Think possitive.

    Trestman would be a good offensive coordinator. In reality, I bet he spends 90% of his time planning the offense. I guess it's OK to trust the defense to Tucker, if they were getting the job done. Are you ready to see Tucker fired, or do you cut him slack because of all the injuries?

    myself, I would like to see a real defensive guru. A top notch guy that can match wits with the best OC's and make meaningful adjustments on the fly. Someone that is capable of coming up with new defensive wrinkles. At his best, I do not think Tucker is that man. At his worst, he is a guy that is so inept that even keeping the same 6 year long defensive scheme he takes the D from top 5 to bottom 5.

    At best he is going to be just ok. I am tired of mediocrity. I want to see the same immediate explosive improvement that Trestman brought to our O. I can see what a difference a top coach can make and I do not see it in Tucker. Even in a best case scenario.

    Let's see who gets fired end of season. I know Mike Singletary wants another HC job, but right now he's just a LB coach with Vikings. So, a DC job with the Bears would be a step up the ladder. He knows defense, and would be a hell of a leader and motivator.
