Another day has passed and Ted Phillips is still, president of the Chicago Bears.



We can only pray that this moron has no say in hiring the next general manager. Apparently, 30 years in the organization (which has resulted in nearly 30 years of ineptitude), isn’t enough. Reports had him being moved to just the business side of things and yet, there he was last week, alongside George in the press conference.

I believe that George McCaskey is pissed. I really do. But if he really wants things to change and for the better, then Teddy Bear shouldn’t have been alongside him. It should have been George only or him and Virginia. They run this team. Nobody else.

A decision is predicted to be made by next week on who the next general manager will be.

    Well, here we are a week after Black Monday, and even though changes have been made…they’re not really enough.

    First, how exactly does George McCaskey justify having Teddy-Bear Phillips being a part of the GM search? He’s been Team President/CEO of the Bears for 16 years, and he has demonstrated NO competence when running a successful NFL team.

    Second, why is Mel Tucker still on the masthead at Halas Hall? The Bears defense gave up the most points in the NFL over the last two seasons, and not only are they letting him interview for the HC job, but they plan to let the new HC decide on whether or not to fire him.

    George had an opportunity to put the Bears in a brand new direction, and he blew it. I’m not saying he needs to be the next Jerry Jones, but dammit he needs to seriously take charge of this franchise at some point.

    Some speculation is that Ballard and Toub will come together. This raises a lot of questions.

    Well, one of the shittiest cornerbacks on the Bears is in trouble. Tim Jennings was arrested in Georgia for a DUI.

    Wonderful. Add another cornerback to the list of needs for the draft in April.

  4. Fro Dog Says:

    Here is a list of things that the Bears need (aside from a front office):

    Defense: Two cornerbacks (at least), three linebackers, one defensive end, one defensive tackle, two safeties

    Offense: Quarterback, running back, wide receiver, offensive lineman

    That’s 13 players. Too bad there are only six or seven picks to go around. I don’t think all of this crap is going get solved in a year or two. In fact, I doubt it. They would have to have all six-seven picks or so be immediate difference-makers along with a few free agents doing the same. It could get bumpy along the way.

    Mel Tucker…please wipe your stinking butt and get another job (outside Chicago). Same to the incompetent Ted Phillips.

    McCaskey and family, until you prove otherwise: heartfelt congrats to you, now officially the worst owners in Chicago pro-sports.

    Truly PATHETIC

    As if on cue as to my concerns with his past ties to Angelo and Emery, Bradd Biggs writes a piece entitled something like “Ballard Can Stand On His Own.” The jury, in my opinion, is at least out on that and that’s not a good nagging question for the Bears at this moment.

    Same shit, different day. I have ZERO confidence that the Bears will get this right.

    Sell the goddamned team you OLD BITCH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  8. SunriseZone Says:

    If Ballard is the choice and Toub is just brought on as a given without, say, Gary Kubiak or Dan Quinn considered as HC, then that sure does smell like same shit, different day.

  9. Fro Dog Says:

    Fuck no. I don’t want Gary Kubiak here. He couldn’t do shit with the Texans. Toub, I’m fine with as he did a great job with special teams. I would be open to him being a coach.

  10. Fro Dog Says:

    Honestly, I have no damn idea how any of these candidates are. The only one I know, who has had success (albeit 15 years ago), is Mike Shannahan. And one of the reasons why I would want him here is because he is a coach who actually calls running plays instead of garbage wide receiver screens on 3rd and 29.

  11. SunriseZone Says:

    It’s not often that the jump is made from special teams to head coach. Quinn, who is all about defense, or even Gase, who is all about offense should be on a level playing field with Toub. That’s all. Just a level playing field for consideration based on ability. One of the hugest problems of the Bears in 2014 was that they were built too much on bullshit “intangibles.” Toub coming just because Ballard does is anti-competitive.

  12. SunriseZone Says:

    I’ve read that Ian Rapoport has said that Shannahan will likely get interviewed for the HC position once a GM is hired . He seems like a very logical choice considering Cutler’s familiarity with him, at least as long as Cutler is around.

  13. Fro Dog Says:

    Well, I don’t think Shanahan would be the worst choice. Like I said, he’s actually won something in this league and his offense focuses on actually running the ball. I think there was one year where the Broncos had three or four different rushers who each had 100-yard games.

  14. SunriseZone Says:

    Hell’s Bells, now that I study a little more about it, the last guy to make the jump from special teams coordinator to head coach didn’t do too badly: John Harbaugh.

  15. genrebuster Says:

    dammit Ted…wipe your stinking butt.

  16. Fro Dog Says:

    Ted Phillips wipes his ass before he shits.
