Bears Tight End Depth

In today’s Chicago Sun-Times, Brad Biggs writes of the depth the Bears have at the tight end position. He also raves of the “ace package”, which replaces fullback Jason McKie with TE Greg Olsen, lending extreme versatility to the Bear offense.

This is great, only this isn’t new. In the preseason of 2007, the Bears showed this package and it excited me. They looked so promising at the time with Grossman throwing well, Cedric we won’t mention his name actually looking like he cared about football, and the two tight ends striking fear into the opposition.

Then Olsen was injured in the final preseason game, and I don’t think we saw the ace package much if at all the rest of the season.

Hopefully 2008 will be different. In that regard, and well, in every regard. Except for sweeping Green Bay.

  1. I can’t wait to see this in action. After reading a few articles about how Kellen Davis is looking in camp, I am really ready to see this offensive package manifest itself on the field. Writers are giving all of our draft picks rave reviews, though I have to admit that most of the websites I go to are more than a little Bears biased. I love/hate this time of year!

  2. It was the main formation in Madden 2008. It worked wonders.

  3. See-it worked on Madden-why the hell didn’t Turner figure that out!! :)
