    It seemed like Lovie's guys often got gassed against the better teams. For years I wondered if there was a conditioning problem there. We always joked about the "Camp Lovie" county club treatment at training camp. Lovie, was the player's buddy who took it easy on them. Urlacher in particular looked like he was laboring out there in recent years. Last year he just looked like a slow old man sucking wind at times.

    Tresman, on the other hand, is fanatical about conditioning.

    He seems like a zealot about the players being in extremely good cardio shape. At training camp this year, it was a "polar opposite" of the lackadaisical "Camp Lovie" and players were running everywhere like their underwear was on fire. Nobody loafed. Plays were reeled off at a dizzying pace for a couple of hours straight.

    I don't think Trestman needs to cheat, because his players will be in shape to play a full four quarters of football. Imagine that.

    Agree with Trestman & Tucker here. If you score enough touchdowns on both sides of the ball you won't need to fake injuries to win the game.

    Just do your job the best you can and the team will be fine.

    I dont think it was a conditioning issue, it is simply a fault in the Cover-2 system, combined with some teams' uptempo offenses (like GB). The problem with "bend but dont break" Cover-2 is that sure...you wont be giving up many deep plays, and you become more stingy in the Redzone, but a good QB can pick apart the defense (like Rodgers), and drive down the field, one set of downs at a time, which wears down your defense. For lesser QBs, you will see more 3 and outs, and less wear on the defense.

    And let's not forget how frequently we didn't sustain drives to make the TOP at least comparable.

    I thought that we would have had less time of possession than our opponents, but actually we won the TOP for the season against opponents. We ran about the same number of plays for the season too. It just seemed t0 me that against the better teams, some of our D players just ended up gassed and sucking wind - especially Urlacher.

    Wow, could you imagine the Bears defense if they were actually in shape? ;) Seriously though, strictly talking about the defense, if they could be in even better shape and have more discipline, I would assume they would be unstoppable.

    I would like to see Urlacher run around on a CFL field, he would not be faking when he is on his back gasping for air.
