    Emery never lets good talent get by him. This is just the first cuts so the most marginal players are the only ones being cut, but those marginal players on teams like Seattle might still prove to be an upgrade for us depending on the position.

    Be interesting if Emery signs one or two players in the next couple of days.

    hopefully they can find 2 legit S's, and maybe a decent LB or 2

    I was going to post that BIH, but didn't want to light a match in the Tucker fumes here. LOL, but I did think that exact same thing :-)

    I'd rather have a new ST coordinator than a new DC tbh.

    eh... what the hell, I might as well. But I do want to say that as much as I think Tucker really is the problem after watching how the d is playing that I really do want to give him 3 or 4 games into the season. Sometimes what you think is the case is really not the case and I'd like to be more sure.
    It's not looking too good for 'ol Mel though.

    LB, DeCam is worse than Tucker, but the D play has more effect on our game. I'd rather see the D fixed and take our chances with the ST game.

    I have a lot of trouble figuring out what fraction of the responsibility for a bad defense to lay on the 20 or so actors (DEs, DTs, DefCoach, HeadCoach, LBs ....). I sometimes think I can eyeball judge bad DT or LB play (loads of examples last year). The judgement of coaches for good/bad defense is so vague that I don't trust it.

    Special Teams may be a little different and I am open to the possibility that the ST coach is the most important ST person. Toub certainly looks golden by taking KC up so far, but ST performance doesn't correlate well across years (Bears and Patriots aside). The Bears in 2013 were 11th best in the NLF (according to the measure I like, http://www.footballoutsiders.com/stats/teamst). Not as good as Toub usually managed but not bad at all. This pre-season they have been obviously awful. If that level of performance occurs in the regular season, I'm sure DeCam will be fired. I expect though, that the Bears will be about average. Preseason has been for special teams experiments, the regular season is for performance.

    My 2 cents.
