Mike Ditka says Bears have 'worst defense I’ve seen in a long time’ (Shutdown Corner) ( today ) Courtesy of
It used to be that you would have to ask Mike Ditka his opinion on something, and he'd say something pretty fierce. Now he just writes it. "I think everybody deserves a little bit of the blame," Ditka wrote for the Chicago Sun-Times . "But I think it starts with the fact that they are not a very good team on defense, and that creates a lot of problems for the offense. "They consistently put the offense in a position where they have to score to win. Their defense hasn’t been able to stop anybody, that’s for sure. You can point the finger at anyone you want, but the players on the field play. "Coaches coach — they don’t play. Owners own — they don’t coach or play. It’s foolish to blame one person." [ Join FanDuel.com's $3M Week 9 fantasy league: $25 to enter; top 26,405 teams paid ] That's inflammatory. But then Ditka brings out the big guns to flamethrow the Bears' defense, with some pretty damning historical perspective. "It’s the worst defense I’ve seen in a long time. No question about it," Ditka wrote. "I can understand why [Bears greats] Dick [Butkus], Dan [Hamption], Doug [Buffone] or any of these guys would be vocal about it. The one constant throughout Bears history has been their defense. You know, in ’63, our defense carried us. We did some good things on offense, but our defense carried us. In ’85 we won a championship — our defense carried us." Comparing this group to the 1963 or 1985 title-winning teams is a bit unfair. But compared to where the Bears were a year ago, struggling horribly against the run, and seemingly getting better personnel-wise, there's no doubt the results are disappointing. They rank 18th in yards allowed but a lowly 29th in points allowed (27.8 points per game), with only the New York Jets, St. Louis Rams and Tampa Bay Buccaneers below them. It's going to be a long bye week for the Bears.   - - - - - - - Eric Edholm is a writer for Shutdown Corner on Yahoo Sports. Have a tip? Email him at edholm@yahoo-inc.com or follow him on Twitter!

Seattle expected to start Coyle at LB (The Associated Press) ( yesterday ) Courtesy of
Rookie Brock Coyle is about to become the next option for the Seattle Seahawks at middle linebacker. Seattle linebackers coach Ken Norton Jr. said Wednesday the Seahawks are planning on starting Coyle at middle linebacker this week against Oakland. The undrafted rookie out of Montana has only played a handful of snaps during the season but impressed Seattle's coaches enough during the preseason that they're comfortable with the move. Yahoo!
