Re: General Manager/Head Coach Interview Discussion

The McCaskey's are totally incapable of playing 4D Chess. All of us here, I'm guessing, have lived through the last 20 years + of Bears football so I don't feel obligated to list it all. I'm certain you guys know. Everytime the McCaskey's try and do something intelligent they get shit on their thumb...

Re: General Manager/Head Coach Interview Discussion

I feel like the most Bears thing to do would be, after all these interviews, to promote Champ Kelly to GM and then he brings on a HC no one's heard of. All indications are the execs have finally gotten the message but there's a lot of precedent to show the above is a possibility. Champ Kelly promot...

Re: Bears to interview Brian Flores

The bottom line with Flores is that he has expecatations. If you don’t meet those expectations then it’s your ass and he doesn’t seem to care who in the organization he has to go after. Gee I wonder where he learned that from. He’s perfect. That GM sucked balls and squandered I think more high picks...

Flores should not have left town or that Zoom call or whatever without a job offer provided they loved him which is the rumor mill.

You live in Las Vegas, cash big checks, and if it doesn't work in four years you walk away a very rich man. But Harbaugh could simply sit at Michigan for years and walk away a very rich man.
