John Crist: Let's say it's 3rd and 21. Is there any way to justify a dime defense with this team because you've got No. 54 and No. 55? It's hard to take Brian Urlacher or Lance Briggs off the field, isn't it?
Corey Graham: I've been thinking that ever since I got drafted here. I was wondering why we don't have a dime. That's just something that most teams got. You would think that in big-time passing situations, you should have that. We don't have it, but you never know. Maybe if it was a big-time passing down and they knew they was going to throw the ball, they might say, "Corey, go in and cover the slot." It might happen. I don't foresee it happening, but I would love for it to be here.
