Finding Cornerback Help for Chicago Bears

  • by

When Lovie Smith put in a cover-2 defense for the Bears in 2004, it really began to take off once two good coverage cornerbacks became comfortable with the heavy zone coverage.

Charles Tillman and Nate Vasher in 2005 helped spark the team’s rise to a division title. Teams seemed to come after Vasher out of fear of Tillman, who had stepped up almost immediately. Vasher was able to take advantage of being targeted and made eight interceptions, or about four times as many as all the Bears cornerbacks combined have made over the last two seasons.
