Sunday Night the Eagles head up to Soldier Field to face the Chicago Bears, so to catch up on all things Bears I sat down with WCG from the great Bears blog Windy City Gridiron.
That is a very good question and I don't know if I can answer that without hedging my bets. Hester just by standing back there gives us the best starting field position in all of football and he is the one guy who can change the game anytime he touches the ball. That said you cannot take anything away from Toub. Hester is great and would be great anywhere, but he wouldn't have the success he has had it not been for what Toub has done with the group. The Bears have been blessed through the draft to get guys who excel at the return game. We literally have at least 5 guys who could start on a lot of other teams at that spot, so it makes the loss of Hester look a little less important, but again Hester scares coaches and players and you cannot talk about that enough. To properly evaluate Toub's importance you have to look at the coverage and you have to look at their ability to get to kickers and create problems.
Ok, did I come around full circle yet....good.
The Bears are 1-2. Both losses are in conference... Even considering how early it is, would you say that this is a must win game?
