      Glennon could’ve started and I would’ve dealt with it.I'm dealing with Doug Martin starting.Dealing with no real defensive ends other than Smith.BUT CHRIS FREAKING CONTE as a starting safety might make my brain explode. I don't know where I saw it, but apparently he's listed as a starter now? Like what in the seven hells? I can't think of a worse player in the NFL and that's having watched McCown last year, but come on!

      Aren’t the two safeties interchangeable in this system?

      Chris Conte is a concussion prone head hunter who can’t hit and takes terrible angles. Otherwise he’s legit.

      I doubt they did. I havent gone back to watch his work in Lovie's Tampa Two but I understand it was much better than his last cpl years at the position. Im gonna give Lovie the benefit of the doubt as it relates to his defense on this one.

      He won’t start. It will be Swearinger and McDougald. But a big reason this defense and team stinks is because they do not respect the safety position. In 2013 we tried to play with two strong safeties and no free safety. FS might be the second most important position right now behind QB. Safeties should not be interchangeable. FS needs to have tremendous range. I think Banks would be a dynamic FS and completely change the defense but we're stuck in the 90s appearantly.

      I would be intrigued in Banks at fs but we need a corner for the 6’5 receivers in our divison and tbh I think Banks is our best cb but back to Conte…..The 2013-2014 bears defense was horrendous with Mel Tucker

      Alright did some research for you fellas, heres an article from 2014 talking about Major Wright and Conte’s suckage in 2013http://www.windycitygridiron.com/2014/6/29/5854502/chicago-bears-nfl-chris-conte-bad-year-and-hope-in-2014As we can see Wright had a pff grade of 5.1 in 2012,-27.6!! in 2013.Now flash forward 1 year later and Wright has a -.04 rating in 2014 not nearly as bad when he's with Loviehttps://www.profootballfocus.com/blog/2014/12/25/2015-free-agents-safeties/So from what we can expect is either an improved Conte with potential building off his 2012 year where bears fan were expecting him to keep growing.Some of you guys probably dont know but Conte was starting to be a well liked player by the fans til his play completely imploded along with the rest of the Bears defense in 2013 under Mel TuckerEdit** Forgot to add Contes pff grade -2.0 in 2012, -15.8 in 2013

      Who knows how this kid might play for the Bucs but if we're being fair there are plays like that for many players. Many wanted to run Barber out of here early. Lynch took time to become the player he became. Hard to just any player by one clip. I am sure there are probably highlight clips too

      Conte may not start.Fatinikun says Swearinger has caught his eye as "always flying around".  Lovie has said he is  pleased with DJ. DJ may be the starter at FS

      It’s day one of training camp. All of this is fluid. Also, Swearinger probably needs to earn it rather than being gifted the spot after his reported attitude in Houston.

      Conte has 9 ints, 21 pdef  in four NFL seasons.  Swearinger has 3 ints, 10 pdef in two NFL seasons.Conte simply put is able to generate more INT's which Lovie covets.  Swearinger has more of a reputation of being a box player.  JC is correct that the team undervalued the free safety position given that having a safety that can cover with range is pretty important in the current state of the NFL. Even in Lovie's system he covets safties that can generate turnovers.I am going to assume that the team simply put didn't have enough resources to address the defensive side of the ball and is working with glue, duct tape, and blue light specials to hold together that unit.  Current needs on defense are: DE, MIKE, NCB, and FS.Some players may step up and prove otherwise but the defense is the one with the big holes, not so much for the offense.

      I am more comfortable with the defense than the offense.Thru out his career, Lovie has shown the ability to develop a top defense.For me, Carter is the unknown.  Switching to a new position---but my feeling is that he will do well. Can't teach speed.

      I read that this play was in overtime and Conte was purely going for the strip because the bills were already in FG position. Not making excuses but just giving context because when I saw this play I too was very concerned

      If Conte does his job because he’s knows the defense he’ll be fine. He may not be dynamic but if a guy is where he’s supposed to be in this defense, thats a good safety.That goes for the other guys as well.

      Agree. Plus anyone will be an improvement over Barron/Goldson.  We need cover safeties, not bone crushing hitters that couldn't cover my grandma.

      Not a good comp IMO.Nowadays safeties need to cover as good as CB's. Not be experts at laying the wood, and drawing laundry. So I don't care if the guy is "soft", can he cover is the question.

      Whiteness aside, he is Sabby without the athleticism. Angles confuse his overly concussed mind

      Conte is actually faster than Banks. And their size is comparable too. I am willing to give him the benefit of the doubt. Hell, he made the All Rookie team his first year as a Bear.
