Arkush: Bears Have Limited Their GM Search
Sports Fan Insider
(WSCR) More than a week has gone by since the firing of general manager Jerry Angelo, and the Bears have yet to interview a single candidate.

“I’m not saying that Lovie Smith should be fired,” Arkush told The Boers and Bernstein Show. “I don’t think he should be fired. But I think when you start the GM search by saying, ‘You’ve only got one restriction — you’re stuck with this coach for the first year.’ Immediately, you’ve set the table improperly.
