Beating the Tampa Two = Beating the Lions

There is some irony in this article as we listen to MLB  Brian Urlacher talk about how successful the Tampa 2 scheme can be with the right personnel and how it all hinges on the rush of the front four.  The Bears weekly give up huge yard totals through the air.  Some of that can be written off to the Bears current situation in the secondary, but even when healthy there was room to throw on our defense and in more than one game the Bears have failed to generate any type of real pass rush.

"I don't think it is, if you play it the way it's supposed to be played," Urlacher said Wednesday in another conference call. "I mean, if you don't have the players to do it, it's not going to work. But if you've got the players to do it, it's going to be successful."

The Bears rank 15th and the Lions near the bottom in defense because they can stop the run.  If you look at just passing defense Detroit is 30th, but the Bears are only two spots higher at 28th, so we can't be running our mouths.  The difference between these two teams is we now have the offense that can take advantage of a bad D.

*** Another first for the Bears on a fantasy football side.

All Bears. Kyle Orton, Matt Forte, Robbie Gould, Greg Olsen, Bears defense, and whoever starts at receiver (Marty Booker, Brandon Lloyd, and/or Rashied Davis) are all good plays this week against the Lions if they are available. I'd even start Olsen in a league that treats tight ends the same as receivers.
