Former Bears GM Jerry Angelo critical of Jay Cutler

Let’s just say this is bulletin board material. Not sure where this came from but  From former Bears general manager Jerry Angelo’s blog, The Score’s Joe Ostrowski tweeted: Jerry Angelo on Cutler: “Has all the physical tools, but inconsistent in the clutch. Mostly due to a lack of poise.” (1/3) #Bears — Joe Ostrowski (@JoeO670) February... Read more »

Reading Between The Lines: George Flexed His Muscle

If you look at all the managers/coaches that have won championships in Chicago, there’s one characteristic they all had in common. No, it wasn’t that they had superior talent or that they made timely game time decisions that won the ball game… they all had mustaches. The power of the mustache. Chicago is known for...

Can't Blame Anyone For The Bears Collapse

With the Bears now out of playoff picture, most want to point the blame. It’s easy to blame Jerry Angelo for assembling the roster. It’s easy to point the finger at Lovie Smith for his commitment to the Cover 2. How about Mike Martz and his offensive play calling during the five game slide? What... Read more »

Bears' Season Over: Potential Offseason Headlines

Is a recap of the game really needed here? The Bears go into Lambeau and get spanked against the Packers, their fourth straight loss to their oldest rivals. With the Bears now officially eliminated from the post season, it’s time to look at the upcoming offseason. Does Mike Martz Stay Or Go? — If he... Read more »

Angelo will have to emphasize roster changes

Angelo will have to emphasize roster changes
I hate to write posts about what needs to happen in the off season while this season is still going on but with the Bears having less than a 5 percent chance of making the playoffs, it’s hard resist. The free fall has everyone on edge, including the most optimistic and hopeful. With rumors swirling around Jerry... Read more »

Jerry Angelo did his due diligence on Sam Hurd

Jerry Angelo did his due diligence on Sam Hurd
The Bears waived Sam Hurd less than 48 hours after he was arrested on federal drug charges. According to a federal complaint, Hurd agreed buy 5-10 kilograms of cocaine and 1,000 pounds of marijuana per week for distribution from an undercover agent. He allegedly agreed to pay $25,000 for each kilogram of cocaine and $450 a... Read more »

Hurry Up Offense: Teammates sticking up for Barber, Bears not sold on Tebow, Angelo's future

Hurry Up Offense: Teammates sticking up for Barber, Bears not sold on Tebow, Angelo's future
Hurry Up Offense: Quick hits on Bears news during the week Marion Barber keeps his silence As far as I’m concerned, why should he? Barber made two bone-headed plays that directly impacted the game. I understand if a player doesn’t like to speak to the media but unless the player has a severe stuttering problem... Read more »

A 'must win' against the Broncos is an understatement

A 'must win' against the Broncos is an understatement
After watching one of the most disappointing performances in recent memory, the Bears need to bounce back in a major way against the Broncos. On paper, when you look at the rosters, the Bears have too much star power, speed and discipline on defense to allow Tim Tebow and his disciples to gallop all over... Read more »

Angelo and Smith face their toughest challenge

Angelo and Smith face their toughest challenge
I’ve been a Jerry Angelo fan. Ive been called an Angelo apologist among other things. When he came in, he made Dick Jauron earn his job and he responded by leading the Bears to a 13-3 record in 2001. When he didn’t live up to his expectations, Angelo canned him. He brought in Lovie Smith... Read more »

Give Angelo credit for assembling a winning team

Give Angelo credit for assembling a winning team
After the Bears started out 2-3, the “Fire Lovie, Fire Jerry” chants were getting louder from the 4th Phase. While the chant isn’t as loud as it was a month ago, there are still a few that haven’t changed their stance. The reality is, the players who Jerry Angelo brought in for Lovie Smith’s system...
