I still feel like Manning is a massive improvement over where we were at...but these comments have me mildly concerned.

A radio guy from WGN in Chicago was on 610, said pretty much the same thing. He called him a "decent" player but nothing spectacular. He said hes good in run support but struggles in his coverage ability.

Probably not if they plan on signing others. We got two starters in the secondary, that's enough for now. Need to focus on front 7 guys, specifically linebackers and a NT.

The front 4 pressure was good. They stopped the run with 7.
They didn't leave any CB on an island but only a couple of times when they blitzed (single safety.)

Manning stepped up a few on the TE.
Overall, he did what he was supposed to do and didn't miss any assignment and didn't blow any coverage.

The Bears had a good lead and went into prevent defense in the 4th quarter.
Bears won 31-26 (Eagles scored a TD in garbage time.)

Overall, this was not a game to really see what Manning is all about.

The main thing is I don't see any blown coverage like that Bears fan hinted.
But it was only one game!
Good to hear!

Everyone blows coverages. Its the nature of the game. I was just suprised that he was perfectly happy losing him as a player.

I'll watch some more to see whether that's true or not, but in the game against Vicks, he did well on the TE.

In the meantime, I like this Chicago babe better than that radio guy, that's for sure!

It's a good sign that he is trying to move in the right direction though, and I'll give him kudos for that. That may not be enough for you, but I still want Cowher or another coach here. THis team has enough pieces to go all the way. They need a HC though.

I have been saying the players are not the issue with this team for awhile now not as Rick and Gary.

I just finish another game, against the Seahawks and Hasselbeck in week 6.
Manning played mostly SS, but also saw the FS spot.

Again, he was where the safety was supposed to be on any given play.
Bears were mostly in cover 2 just as the other game, but the safeties played closer than against Vick (which is understandable.)

He did well in run support and didn't blow any coverage (but also didn't figure in any help situation).
The pass action was never really near him enough to require him to help.
But he was there just in case.

No news is good news so far, I guess!

I'm going to watch him against Wade's Cowboys next.

Default Re: Danieal Manning S, signs with Texans

I don't think that this has been posted. Nice article.

Quote:
The Chicago Bears experienced another free-agent defection early Friday morning, when strong safety Danieal Manning reached an agreement to join the Houston Texans.

His agent, Russel Hicks, said it was a four-year deal worth $20 million, with $9 million in guarantees.

The loss doesn't come as a surprise, after Manning turned down a three-year offer from the Bears last season.

"Man, it was tough to leave Chicago because I had so many bonds up there with coaches and players, especially the players, they were great," Manning told ESPNChicago.com. "But deep down inside, I feel like I got what I deserved. I feel like Chicago made their decision and I had to do what was best for me.

"I really didn't know this offseason, because of all the stuff with the CBA and the lockout, if the Bears were going to try and bring me back. I was like, well maybe they can't talk to me because they can't due to the lockout. As the lockout ended, I assumed Chicago would at least make a fair effort to bring me back. I mean, you kind of want to play out your career with the first team you played with, the first team that drafted you. But it didn't happen."

The departure leaves the Bears with little proven depth behind veteran Chris Harris and rising second-year player Major Wright. Craig Steltz is the only proven backup, but the club drafted third-rounder Chris Conte as a potential reserve, in addition to adding undrafted rookies.

Had the sides been able to come to an agreement for a Manning return, the safety had already been told he'd be involved in a three-player rotation, somewhat similar to last year's, which still featured Harris and Manning taking the majority of the snaps.

So Manning chose to sign with the Texans after receiving interest from several suitors, including the 49ers, Browns, Saints and Jets.

"I feel like those [Texans] coaches genuinely care about you and are putting together guys that want to win," Manning said. "They told me they envision me roaming the field on defense. It's a different scheme than I played in with the Bears, it's a 3-4 obviously, but it's a great opportunity. I talked with head coach Gary Kubiak, defensive coordinator Wade Phillips and secondary coach Vance Joseph, they all sound like great guys and they told me how they want me to play. I told them I want to learn to play Houston Texans football.

"They told me just free safety right now, but anything can happen. As you know, in my past, things have a tendency to change for me on defense."

A fifth-year veteran, Manning made arguably the most significant impact of his tenure with the team in 2011, when he contributed 85 tackles, an interception and five pass breakups. The performance came as somewhat of a breakthrough for Manning, who played virtually every spot in the secondary, before the team finally settled on him at strong safety.

During a season in which the Bears allowed the second-fewest touchdown passes (14), and gave up multiple touchdowns just twice (best in the league), Manning was one of five safeties in the NFL who played 75 percent or more of their defensive snaps to not give up a touchdown.

Manning also missed just three tackles, second-fewest among other NFL safeties who played 75 percent or more of their team's defensive snaps.

Manning contributed considerably on special teams as a return man as well, which is likely a role he'll take on with his new club. Since 2008, Manning leads the NFL in kickoff returns of 40 or more yards.

"To be honest, we only spoke about returning kickoffs briefly," he said. "I didn't talk to the special teams coach at all. I think they have excellent return men already in place in Houston. At this point, I was just happy to be part of the Texans organization. I'm totally on-board, and now I'm going to do my absolute best to try and help this team win some games and make the playoffs."

Despite Manning's resume, the Bears placed their hopes on the inexperienced Wright, even though late last season they tried to re-sign Manning to a contract averaging $2 million per year for three years.

Sources within the organization said the Bears wouldn't increase that offer, leaving Manning to shop his services elsewhere.

So... Quin is the Strong safety? Or are our Siamese Safeties both considered Free at this point?

I think he misspoke. The coaches, and Glover himself, have all said Glover is the free safety. Manning will play strong safety like he did in Chicago last year.

The coaches talked to Manning about free safety? What happened to Quin? Even if both safeties are similar what does this comment say? Maybe the coaches will go back to S-1 & S-2?

I just finish with the Bears/Cowboys game in week 2.
Manning had a very nice game, all around.

There's no way this guy can be lacking in coverage!
He reads run/pass very well and reacts quickly.

Again, he played mostly SS, but also saw some action at FS.

Witten had 5 catches, but none when Manning took him on.
When Manning gets on Witten, he shuts him down.

Looks good in coverage over the top, always showing up where he was supposed to be.
He got back to defend Miles Austin late in the game to prevent a possible TD pass that could have tied the game.

He read and reacted well to stop barber on a short yardage situation at the goal line, hitting him in the air.

No wonder Phillips wants him!

I think I'm going to take a break now.
What a way to spend a day off!

From what I've read, last year he did well. Before that, the bears didn't know what to do with him - Moving him around as a safety, playing him as a nickle cornerback, etc. Maybe last year he just clicked?

Coming out of a small school like Abilene Christian, it's fair to say that he needs some time to develop.

I think that because Manning has some speed, they wanted to try to see if he can handle the CB position.
And the nickel would be a good starting point for a young player.

Also due to his speed and running skills, they wanted him to lighten the load for Hester in the KR department.
