Wednesday Pressers: Trestman, Tucker, DeCamillis, and Bears’ Players Talk to Media

The Bears held a media session today and I’ve compiled a few tweets to keep you informed about what’s going on:

Mel Tucker:

"#Bears DC Tucker on #Steelers 31st ranked offense “you can take those numbers & throw ’em out the field”— Peggy Kusinski (@peggykusinski) September 18, 2013"

"#Bears DC Tucker praised Peppers as a student of the game says they talk on & off the field all the time— Peggy Kusinski (@peggykusinski) September 18, 2013"

Tucker also commented on a need for the Bears to tackle better… as if everyone and their dog didn’t know that already, but at least they aren’t pretending it’s not a problem.

Marc Trestman:

"LM: Trestman calls Steelers’ Ben Roethlisberger a “Hall of Fame-caliber quarterback.”— Chicago Bears (@ChicagoBears) September 18, 2013"

"LM: Trestman: “I came here as a Devin Hester fan. I’ve been watching him for years.” — Chicago Bears (@ChicagoBears) September 18, 2013"

"LM: #Bears coach Marc Trestman: “We’re all excited to go on the road and find out more about our football team.” — Chicago Bears (@ChicagoBears) September 18, 2013"

"LM: Trestman says Roethlisberger has “ability to extend plays like no other quarterback to my recollection.”— Chicago Bears (@ChicagoBears) September 18, 2013"

"LM: Trestman on #Bears‘ 2-0 record: “We’re very tempered. We’re not going to get caught up in the hype …”— Chicago Bears (@ChicagoBears) September 18, 2013"

"Trestman: “There’s nothing like going against the Steeler 34.” …says it’s a conceptually, structurally good defense.— Rich Campbell (@Rich_Campbell) September 18, 2013"

High praises for Ben Roethlisberger and the Steelers’ Defense.  Nothing Earth-shattering here, just a little something I like to call “Treasure Talk” (the opposite of “Trash Talk”) to be sure to minimize bulletin board material for the other team

Joe DeCamillis:

That was a great, heads-up play by Eric Weems, wasn’t it?

Various Players:

It’s good to hear some fiery talk from Julius Peppers, but I’ll be happier when I see it on Sunday.  There was some worried chatter in the morning about Tillman missing practice, but it sounds like it was just a precautionary measure.  All in all, it was a good day; some good, very little bad.  Any thoughts Bears fans?
