Let’s all stop the stupidity over Brian Urlacher needing to keep some kind of pristine connection to the Bears, as if the mere sight of him limping around the field in any other colors is somehow unthinkable.
Bears president Ted Phillips addressed the possibility of the 34-year-old Urlacher returning to the Bears.
Bears general manager Phil Emery denied Wednesday that the Bears have had discussions with head coach Lovie Smith about a contract extension.
As Lovie Smith says, mini-camp is the end of the Bears offseason. It’s three days where the foundation is laid and the scene is set for Bourbonnais.
According to a report, the Bears have made Pro Bowl running back Matt Forte a “strong offer” and the the team is hopeful he’ll accept it.
Two Chicago sports figures cracked the top 10 — Chairman of the Blackhawks, Rocky Wirtz at No. 5, and Bulls point guard Derrick Rose at No. 7.
Though Phil Emery can’t fire Lovie Smith, the Bears are going to do everything in their power so he can succeed.
Bears president Ted Phillips knows he isn’t a talent evaluator, and that’s exactly why he hired Phil Emery as the team’s new general manager.
The Bears have narrowed their GM search down to two candidates, but one NFL expert thinks one candidate is far better than the other.
Add Pro Football Talk’s Mike Florio to the list of people who don’t understand what the Bears are doing.
Though the Bears have yet to make a decision on their new general manager, one candidate appears to have strong ties to the organization.
The news that Phillips will be conducting the search wasn’t met kindly by one Bears Hall of Famer.
With last week’s rambling, incoherent press conference at Halas Hall providing the perfect symbolic catalyst for his efforts, team president Ted Phillips apparently decided to race back to his office and play Angry Birds.
You can’t simultaneously hire a real general manager and reaffirm the alpha-dog status of your head coach. Not possible.
The Bears’ decision to fire their general manager but keep their head coach may be one that haunts them in the coming months.
All hail your supreme football leader, Bears fans. It is apparent that Smith rules Halas Hall with a velvet hammer, fronting to the media and public with his folksy blandness and the stoicism of a Winslow Homer painting, all the while swinging a big stick behind closed doors.
Actions may speak louder than words, yet without Bears chairman George McCaskey’s mantra that “winning world championships” is the team’s goal, Jerry Angelo would still be general manager.
Just hours after firing general manager Jerry Angelo, Bears president Ted Phillips reiterated what the goal of every move within the organization centers around.
On the heels of an 8-8 season that saw the Bears drop five-straight games, general manager Jerry Angelo has been fired.
There’s no use looking back now. The 2011 season is over and it’ time to start preparing for the future.
