The Bears tend to focus on the positive side stating that Green was brought up to the line in running situations and the fact that the passing game is so prevalent in today's game that someone has to make the tackles.
The other side of the argument is that Green is getting beat in coverage against tight ends and running backs. Green is supposed to be better in coverage then the departed Tony Parrish, who had seven interceptions in 2002 for the 49ers, but failed to live up to those expectations.
Green will likely be retained and start at strong safety in 2003, but there are a few players that could push him out of the role.
Either way Green can play both safety and cornerback a valuable commodity, which will force the Bears to keep him on the roster.
Likelihood Green will return: 85-15 in favor.
