    Butkus, I agree, but I would have thought they'd want to see some of that in a least semi real situations. But all the same it needs to be pointed out to those that think they are watching Tuckers D in pre season, that we aren't.

    hmmm...

    so, either practice is a complete waste of time and we should open up the season in Sep going right into the season games, or our coaches should be willing to accept less effort during practice and PS.

    I dunno... I'm not buying either.

    Not all practice(s) are public. What & how they practice when outsiders & cameras are not around is probably different than what reporters see when they are viewing a PUBLIC practice. Just my $.02.

    That right there is what I'm hoping and if that is the case, both Trestman and Tucker go up a notch in my estimation (assuming what they are working on actually works!)

    Rumor has it that they are busy converting vaunted "Hester Package" to "The Shea Package" and when it is finally rolled out this season Mel will shock the world.

    The Shea Butter Package. Comes in different styles and sizes for different plays.

    The current status of the Shea Butter Package ... Unrefined...

    When you want to blitz the QB and body slam him...

    When you're trying for an interception/pass break up...

    [​IMG]


    When you want him to spy on the QB...

    The Canadians apparently used this in Olympic curling to run better on the ice. So this could be used on running plays...

    And for when Shea screws up...

    ...and just needs to wash his hands of the situation....

    I understand that Emery wanted Tucker to merge the two packages into the Shester (sometimes known as shyster) package. Mel insisted he did not want to use any one elses package and so went with his own called the Shea package.

    Shea was quoted "I am very honored that coach Tucker has named this after me. I am going to be sure that it goes just the way coach says. Right now none of us understand what he's trying to teach us, but we're doing it anyway".

    Tucker gave a few clues during his interview. "Yes, this is the Hester package but I renamed it."

    Newsbot: "It's the Hester package?!"

    Tucker: "Yes"

    Newsbot: "I thought you wanted your own package"

    Tucker: "Yes"

    Newsbot: "So your own package is the same as the old package?"

    Tucker: "Yes"

    Newsbot: "Why did you do that?"

    Tucker: "I wasn't sure how to come up with my own"

    Newsbot: "But the old one never worked for you"

    Tucker: "I wasn't really sure how to coach it either...."


    The daBears Newsbot is relentless in his pursuit of breaking news...

    Can we put a number (or statistic) on sucess with Tucker this year? I am certainly not expecting a top 10 defense. How mediocre is success on defense this year?

    To be fair to him, while I think the preseason is a pretty good indication (I know that is arguable), I'm not sure any stats are going to be meaningful until the season starts, especially if he is not rolling out his complete defense.

    Personally, I am not expecting much of a change but probably the best way to go to be fair. I think others on the board are more knowledgeable than I as to where to get the best stats.

    LOL, we could play the "Bob Newhart Game" with this video and just substitute the word practice for Bob. :10 7 3[1]:

    If it's good enough to get us to the NFC Championship with a fighting chance of winning it then it'll be good enough. Anything else isn't.
