Phil Emery
In the Bears search for a “real” GM, four names have emerged.  The positive thing here is that Phillips & McCaskey are not rushing things and want to get the right guy who will build this team using the draft rather than grabbing a bunch of used-up retreads which was one of Angelo’s worse habits...

And Now, We Wait......

1 Stays, 1 Goes.....
Make no mistake Bear Fans, this season (which began with such promise) turned out to be one we’d rather forget.  It is also a season where team Prez Ted Phillips could make a statement on just how serious he is about building a championship team (like he claimed last spring).

Poor, Poor, Poor......

Bears Fans Are Feeling Very Deflated Right Now
Those are the only three words I can think of when it comes to the current state of the Chicago Bears.  Poor execution (by the players), poor coaching by Lovie and his staff, and poor team management which falls directly on the “slim” shoulders of both Jerry Angelo, and his side-kick Tim Ruskell.  I include Ruskell...

Pay Matt Forte!!!!

I couldn’t believe my eyes when I read Steve Rosenbloom’s Tribune article which praised Jerry Angelo for not paying RB Matt Forte (see article). Every one we talk, including current and former NFL players, all unanimously agree that Matt should get paid.  Forte accounts for at least 60% of the Bears offensive production.  Without Forte,...

Roger Goddell & Jeff Pash, The “Gruesome-Twosome” Last Friday’s Tribune article by Sam Farmer, gave us a line-for-line look at both sides in the dispute (see article). So for those “on-the-fence” between the owners and players, here’s “the-truth” straight-up; just as the players used a “strike” as a means for “leverage” in 1987 dispute, the... Read more »

Bears New Prez, Ted Phillips Sun-Times writer Sean Jensen unleashed yet another informative article regarding (new man in-charge) Ted Phillips, who is very commitment to getting a deal done in this labor “squabble” so that the teams can get back to the business of Football (see article).

Today, It's Lovie's Turn To Get Roasted....

In my last entry, I climbed “all-over” Jay Cutler for lacking the “demonstrative” intangibles needed to be an effective leader and field general.  Today, I take a critical look at HC Lovie Smith in response to Steve Rosenbloom’s latest article in the Tribune regarding this same topic (see article). Steve gave us a very “sobering”... Read more »
