    Tough one. Maybe a slight edge to this year's. I think Peppers, Jennings, and Melton are a big part of that. Still a LONG WAY TO GO though, so I pray pray pray for health for all our guys the rest of the way in 2012/13!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    No Mike Brown? I think Mike Brown mattered that season, even if he didn't play the big game.

    Give me more than 4 games to get a better judgement. We haven't necessarily played offensive juggernauts other than GB so far.

    Individual talent alone?

    The '06 would smash this years team. Urlacher, Briggs, and Tommie. That's 2 HOF players in their prime and an All-Pro (arguably the best 3-tech ever in a limited stretch). That blows away anything we can put together now. Not to mention Mike Brown and Peanut. Hell, even Vasher was unreal that year.

    If you're talking as a collective group, I think our overall talent level is deeper this year (especially DL), but the top guys aren't as great as they were then.

    Briggs is still playing at a high intensity for sure. Urlacher, obviously yeah he's lost a step or two. Hell, I don't think Tillman has actually declined at all. Not to mention Peppers, better than anyone on the 06 line, and hes still not playing 100% healthy. Yes, the D-line is deeper for sure now, I honestly think Melton, Wooten, McClellin, and Paea all have some crazy potential that could make them All-Pro D line men.

    Doesn't matter how Briggs/Urlacher are playing right now, they're not as good as they were in '06. No chance.

    Peppers is great. Really ****ing great. He's the best athlete in Bears history, and possibly the NFL (I sound like PP lol). But, in Lovie's T2, the 3-tech is the single most important position on the field. It all starts with that position, Tommie for the short time he was playing, was absolutely dominant. I'd take a healthy/prime Tommie over Peppers every time for this scheme.


    edit: and notice when we start getting good-great play from the interior of the DL, this D looks elite again. That's the point of the T2.

    And I actually think Peanut has been better recently than he was back then. He's the perfect fit for the T2.


    Edit:

    Holy **** has he been consistent:

    I'm abstaining from voting until we have more than a 4 game sample size.


    2006 is really hard to top.
