Steltz Looks Good in Bears Preseason Opener

The Chicago Tribune says that safety Craig Steltz had a productive exhibition opener:

Bears secondary coach Jon Hoke said last week Craig Steltz had no reason to sulk despite a pre-camp demotion. “It’s early,” Hoke said. “People change when they get into games. He’ll have his opportunities. There’s nothing etched in stone. And I’m sure things will start to fall his way.” Hoke’s words were prophetic as Steltz responded with an interception, a forced fumble and five tackles Saturday in a 27-20 exhibition loss Buffalo. He picked off Bills third-string quarterback Gibran Hamdan and returned it 41 yards, setting up Caleb Hanie’s 10-yard touchdown toss to rookie Will Ta’ufo’ou in the third quarter.

    I am from La. and watched Steltz with the Tigers. His best assests are his football smarts and tenacity for the hitting. He will not be faked out like Danielle Manning is often on the play action. I hope he get’s his chance, if he does he will never lose it.
