Bears Will Introduce Phil Emery Today at 2:00 PM CT

The Chicago Bears will introduce their fifth GM in organizational history, Phil Emery, at a 2 PM CT press conference. I don't expect Emery to go into much detail regarding a future plan but it'll be interesting to gauge his initial dealings with the beloved Chicago sports media. (Including Brad Biggs, pictured above.)

  • Hope his time at Canoe U has blessed his decision making ability, and bears much FIRST round fruit.

  • Coming from KC, I hope his first fruit is to bring Bowe with him. It's probably going to take 2 or three years to fine tune our WR core and I look to see Emory deliver on Bowe. It makes sense doesn't it?

  • Biggsy - my man, Al's #1 Italian Beef is a sometimes food.

    he is in a death spiral. hasn't been able to see his penis in more than 8 years.

  • In reply to Waffle 2.0:

    There he is. Nice.

  • Speaking of crazy injuries, the X Games was on tv yesterday.

    There is a new sport, it's ski racing. I'm trying to find video of it, I can't find a link right now. This sport is insanity, I would mandate a medivac be present. It's as crazy as 1950s formula 1 where they sat in bathtubs without seat belts.

    There are 6 racers, they all leave the hill at the top at the same time, and they RACE down a steep hill, no more than 12" apart most times, through these curved tubes like bobsledders have, probably going about 55-60mph trying to pass each other.

    There must be one helluva gentleman's code there, because if any ONE of them does something stupid, unless it's the last two guys, the whole crew is headed for traction in the hospital in a monster crash.

    I was watching the sport, marveling at the sheer suicidal nature of the whole thing.

    Oh ok it's called Skier X.

    Here's a case in point:

    ...and those were the chicks.

  • In reply to gpldan:

    this isn't new, been around for years. Not sure how many years X-games has had it though but I remember seeing this last year, as well as the snowboarding version of the race. It's good stuff

  • Media Super Bowl week. Wheeee!!!!!

    Seems like Monday's story is Bellichek's announcement that Branch is going to play D in the Super Bowl in the nickel.

    Deion at corner! Deion..... Branch that is.

    Branch vs. Manningham. Woo hoo!

  • In reply to gpldan:

    yeah, soooooo excited. Yay!

  • Dude, biggs needs to lay off the fucking Krispy Kreme. Jesus.

    He looks like he is going to pop any second.

    ha. Glad I'm not his cardiologist nyb

  • we may be witnessing the beginning of the end of football as we know it gents: http://www.cnn.com/2012/01/27/health/big-hits-broken-dreams-brain-bank/index.html?hpt=hp_c2

    To be honest, unless they come up with new helmet technology that gets rid of concussions almost completely, I don’t think I want my son playing. And I would NEVER have even contemplated that possibility a couple years ago.

    GP, you let your son play?

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Damn, that is scary. Kids are getting bigger and stronger at a young age these days and the hits are a lot harder. I don't know if there is an increase in visibility of this issue or if the hits have gotten that much harder but there seem to be so many more issues in both hockey and football in the last few years. Both in terms of suicides and players dying from injuries. My son took a liking to Lacrosse over football and is still fairly young but it is an issue in any contact sport.

  • In reply to NY Bears Fan:

    yep. I think it's more about the exposure nyb. Ask Johnny about his injury if he ever comes back to us. I think hits have always been hard.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    No. He has taken up swimming.

  • In reply to gpldan:

    I see him online in MW3, but he won't play with us much.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    I was actually pondering the same MB (after reading the Hunter article).

    I don't have a kid, but my nephew is getting to that age, and while I would want him to play sports, not sure if I would want him to play football (which is painful to say, as I played and think it's a great sport).

    My brother-in-law is actually into MMA, but that has it's own set of problems too.

    So what's left for a tike? Baseball, Basketball, Soccer or other Olympic sports?

    Nothing wrong with them.

    They're just not football.

  • Sanjay "Vajazzle" Gupta pointed out that football is probably the worst thing somebody in high school could do, as that is when the brain is going through it's largest development cycle:

    yep. scary scary stuff.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    And the pussification of American continues. It all started with mandatory bike helmets.

  • I totally get that coach, I felt the exact same way....until I had my son and you look into his little eyes and you never ever want to see him hurt.

    That may sound gay and mushy and you won't at all really get it until you have a kid of your own, but all the macho-ness that you've been trading on your entire life as a red-blooded american man goes right out the window. I didn't think it would happen to me, and having the honor of playing football was one of THE greatest things that has happened in my life, but... here I am... contemplating not letting my son play.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    I broke my neck playing ball so I'm extremely hesitant to let my son play unless he trains the way i tell him to from grade school onwards. Even then I will still be concerned. Imagine how advanced the game will be in 10 years and the size of the kids playing.

  • In reply to Waffle 2.0:

    That stuff is what moms have been terrified of forever, that stuff is going to happen no matter what. It's the brain injury stuff that really scares me Johnny. Bones heal, ligaments can be repaired, muscles heal... brains don't.

    I sustained a double compound tib/fib fracture on the filed my sophomore year in college... still didn't stop me from wanting my son to play. Brain stuff does in a big way.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    MB!!!!!!!!!!!!! not gay at all bra.......after my son was in flag football a couple of years ago and the opposing coach is yelling take out #9 during one of our games...and realizing #9 is my son!!! remembered this is "F"ing FLAG FOOTBALL!!!!!!! so at the end of the game went over and expressed to him and his coaching staff "if you want to take someone out, why don't you start with me I'm your size bitch."

    This is ass-goblin was on the Head Committee for our local YAFL!!!! All he could see is creating these human missile's with out teaching technique of a tackle.....crikey 6 to11 year old's with concussions was his cup of tea. So...with that I realized until my boy is older and more developed and understands technique and positions of the game..No way, sorry bud. The main reason was, I had teammate in High School became a quadriplegic when he lead with his helmet and his bod as a missile...Our Coach was constantly on him about wrapping and not leaving your feet. I guess he learned the hard way....

  • anyone have a link to the live presser?

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Sorry, buddy. It just finished.

    The guy seems good... *seems* - We shall see.

    Much better than JA... I didn't hear him once mention "dirty pool".
