Bears: Shea has big plans for Terrell

THE NEWS

New Bears offensive coordinator Terry Shea has big plans for the team's top pick from the 2001 draft. "My impression of David Terrell is very high right now, and that's based on a number of games that I've watched on tape," Shea said in response to questions on the team's web site. "He was certainly underused, or for whatever reason he was not allowed to catch a high number of passes last year. But in terms of watching him run routes, avoid defenders on his way into routes, and his explosiveness off the line of scrimmage, I am really excited that David Terrell is here in Chicago and he is going to fit this offense very well."


OUR VIEW

It's hardly news to fantasy owners that Terrell was underused in Dick Jauron's ultra-conservative offense, so it's nice to see that their new OC at least recognizes his talent. Dez White is a free agent and won't be back, which could finally open the door for David. If Terrell has the right attitude, he could start and have a breakout year in their new, more wide-open scheme.


Hardly worthy of a draft pick, but someone to keep an early eye on for a waiver pick-up.

Any Bears WR has to rebound from what was a horrendous 2003 passing game.

You Booker owners know what I'm talkin about.

Terrell looked like a can't miss stud when he was at Michigan. Big, fast, great hands....but a poor work ethic. If he can dedicate himself in the off-season who knows?

Normally it takes WR one or two seasons to make an impact. Rookie WRs tend to struggle for reasons I'm not sure of. Coming into year three now, this could be a great year for Terrell assuming Kordell is NOT the loser behind center. Nice Sleeper, TTTBone.
Thank God for Football Season.

If I'm not mistaken last year was Terrell's third season. I loved the guy when he was at Michigan and he looked like he would be a great redzone threat. If I see one big game early in the season I'm going to pick him up for sure.

I'd wait until you see Terrell being used a lot during the exhibition games and the first few weeks of the season before taking a risk with him. He definitely looked great in college but I'm still skeptical as to what he is capable of in the NFL.

When there's a new coach in town, he usually attempts bringing the morale up of players who were often misused or rarely used at all. Tom Coughlin is currently doing the same thing with Ron Dayne.

...Sleepers are always nice, though (I know I'm glad I hung on to Santana Moss and Steve Smith in my league). I'll be keeping my eye on him.

I could be wrong, but I think it has more to do with route running than anything else. That's why Boldin had so much early success - he's a fantastic route runner. In college a lot of the highly touted WRs could simply out run the DBs but in the NFL the DBs are just as fast as the WRs. The successful WRs are solid with their routes and have developed timing with their QBs.
