Defensive Line for Chicago Bears Will Continue to Bring Pressure in Upcoming Season
Lake Forest, IL. Day Two of OTAs.
This offseason for the Chicago Bears is full of question marks on the offensive side of the ball, as the league and fans alike wonder aloud to exactly what Marc Trestman and his offensive coordinator, Aaron Kromer, have up their respective sleeves for offensive stalwarts Jay Cutler, Matt Forte and Brandon Marshall. Nevertheless, despite the turnover within the Bears organization in terms of coaching staff and star players (such as Brian Urlacher) one thing remains the same going into the 2013 season: the vaunted Bears defense.
Sure, All-Pro linebacker, Number 54, is no longer roaming the middle of the field; all the same, the team still has an embarrassment of riches on the defensive side of the ball. Namely the front four rotation of Julius Peppers, Henry Melton, Israel Idonije, Corey Wootton, Amobi Okoye, Stephen Paea and Shea McClellin which presented teams around the league with a unique problem. That being most, if not all of the pass rush pressure was created by the assembled front four cast.
The Bears, running the Tampa-2, harassed opposing quarterbacks to the tune of 38 sacks on the season. Although there are sure to be a few changes to the defensive scheme under new defensive coordinator, Mel Tucker, the strength of the Bears defensive appears to be in position to once again wreak havoc on opposing offensive lines and quarterbacks once the 2013 season is in full tilt. Regardless what the new Bears offense will possibly bring to the table, the name of the game remains to same for the front four. Pressure.
