Pace and Nagy are GONE! But Ted Phillips remains.


I am very busy today with work and am currently listening to the shit show press conference by George McCaskey. And yes, Ted Phillips was confirmed to be involved in the hiring process for a general manager and head coach.

Fuck this franchise. Your thoughts in the thread.

    I turned it off half way through. It was the same goddamned message they’ve been giving us for thirty fucking years. We’re smarter than you, we know more than you, so sit down and shut the fuck up while we take your money. And yet, as Fro stated, Ted FUCKING Phillips remains. This goddamned cocksucker must have naked pictures of the OLD BITCH somewhere that he’s dangling over George’s head. He’s sure as hell not there because of his job performance! Remember several years ago when Phillips became the Bears president? Remember how Dan Bernstein SCREAMED at people about how ole Teddy was removed from football decisions? Fans screamed back at him that he was still involved. Well Dan, how’s that workin’ for ya, ya schmuck? HE’S STILL THERE, STILL MAKING FOOTBALL DECISIONS!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    By the way, did anyone notice who asked George his first question? Yeah, fucking Hub Arkush, the most overrated hack football writer who ever lived. Hey Hub? You have a little brown stuff on your nose, your arrogant, know nothing fucking prick.

    O4FS…c’mon YouTube, can we be any bigger assholes about damn near EVERYTHING???

    I thought the press conference was good. I have said for 3 seasons now that the Chicago media sucks, they just take the word of other people.
    Today everyone (except Hub ) asked real questions and when George went somewhere else with it, they asked the question a second time. missed George calling Olin Kreutz a liar. Olin was on the score immediately and he didn’t mince any words on how he feels about the McCaskeys.
    I love how they are trading Acorsi for Polian.
    On George’s side, he was able to answer the accountability question On the offensive side we literally scored our only touchdown of that game on the last play of the game—twice. On defense in week 1 a defensive player failed to touch a receiver down…and the same thing happened in the last game.

    It’s great that the 2 idiots are gone, but they do seem to be set up to just hire more wrong people and not know how to evaluate them because….”I’m just a fan”.

  5. chucky Says:

    That “I’m just a fan” thing doesn’t work with me. We’re all fans here, and we’ve forgotten more about football than the entire McCaskey family will ever know.

  6. Mark Johnson Says:

    DVX….That 3rd video is outstanding work. A tip of my COLTS hat to you.

  7. Mark Johnson Says:

    Chucky…me either. How damn long does a guy with a 4.5 BILLION dollar organization need to start learning. Buy Madden every year and learn it for Fuck sake. Anything would help.

    How I REALLY feel:

  9. dvxprime Says:

    The end-of-season press conference that Georgie-boy truly deserves:

  10. chucky Says:

    dvx….if only Arkush had enough hair on his ass to do that.

  11. chucky Says:

    So Fro, I have a suggestion for the next banner.

    Fire Ted Phillips and a General Manager and Head Coach to be named later.


  12. Mark Johnson Says:

    “Post Chicago Sports Suckage Here and Discuss”

  13. chucky Says:

    Paul, buddy, this one’s for you. Unbelievably, the aforementioned Dan Bernstein manages to hit this one out of the park, and also manages to expose his deep rooted hypocrisy and extremely short memory.

    I didn’t think anybody could own himself as much as Danny boy just did.

  14. John Says:

    How about we take a break from all the fire and brimstone here and take an analytical picture of the NFL. XD There are 32 teams, of which 14 will make the playoffs, of which only 2 will make the Super Bowl, that only 1 will win.

    It is inevitable that for all the other 31 teams there will be hand-wringing and consternation . . . lasting for years and decades on end.

    (Cough.) Vikings, Lions, Browns, Jets, Bengals, Bills, Jags, Texans, Cards, Falcons, Panthers, Dan Snyder’s Sadness Machine.

    Football is ultimately a zero-sum game.

    Although the Bears are frequently the cause of my ire and wrath, this is not anything that essentially every other team goes through. And, yes, I am envious and hating of the Packers and Patriots and their unrelenting success.

    I’m just shocked that everyone seems more enraged NOW that Matt Nagy and Ryan Pace have been fired, to everyone’s fulfillment of wish. Looking back through the archives of this blog, everyone was pretty mum when John Fox got fired back in January of 2018.

    I don’t really know if the McCaskey’s owning the Bears makes much of a difference . . . or what Ted Phillips does besides be sweaty, as one article I read some time ago described him as.

    I am fully familiar with the fiascos the Bears have undergone in the last 12 years, but David Tepper (Panthers), Shad Khan (Jags), Jimmy & Dee Haslan (Browns), Arthur Blank (Falcons), Ford family (Lions)—equivalent of the McCaskeys, Zygi Wilf (Vikings), and Christopher Johnson (Jets) have their own share of them, too.

    I don’t know. Would . . . Elon Musk or Jeff Bezos buying the Bears make much of a difference? XD

  15. Fro Dog Says:

    I missed the first few minutes of the press conference today. But from what I’ve read, that was also a disaster.

    George McCaskey flat-out lied about the role Ted Phillips has with the franchise. Last year, he did the same thing.

    I missed the part about him basically being angry at high school kids for chanting “Fire Nagy” during a game with Nagy’s son on the team. I agree that kids should be off-limits. But when people are that pissed off, it’s the unfortunate reality.

    As it was mentioned earlier by Mark that George also lied about Olin Kruetz’s job offer. I believe Kruetz over George for obvious reasons. Now, Olin indeed said that the job offer was a “standard rate” for it. But still. $15 for a job on the team? Sheesh.

  16. Fro Dog Says:

    Note to everyone:

    The site will be renamed “Fire Ted Phillips” in the next day or two. I am letting this remain as is due to the amount of traffic this place is getting.

  17. genrebuster Says:

    ‘Fire Ted Phillips’ is appropriate.

  18. chucky Says:

    No worries Fro! I just thought my idea of having Fire Ted and then fire fire two blank silhouettes would send the message that we expect George to fuck this up too. Which, I think, is a fairly accurate assessment.

  19. genrebuster Says:

    John. To be clear: I’m HAPPY that Nagy and Pace are gone. It should have happened a long time ago.

    I’m ANGRY that Phillips is still involved. Feel free to explain how he is valuable to ‘the process’. Why the hell should he have any say in the next GM and Head Coach hires?

    I guess it’s because he’s pals with George McCaskey. George cares about $$$, not winning. I think it’s fair to say that he’s been mostly inept.

    As long as George McCaskey is calling the shots, I don’t believe that there’s much reason to believe that the immediate future is bright.

    At this point, it’s hard for me to give a shit.

  20. chucky Says:

    I have to agree with on this John, no disrespect intended. George really shit the bed on that press conference. There’s one thing that keeps sticking in my head like a nail. George said that they are again turning to outside help in their search for a new HC and GM. He stated that he’s not an evaluator, just a statement. Both statements are quite telling. Consider this: The Bears are the family business, their sole source of income, and on two separate occasions he admitted he doesn’t know what the hell he’s doing. When has a person gone up the ranks like George has, been in the business most of his life, over 70 years, and never taken enough of an interest in it to learn in that business? Look, let’s face it. The McCaskey family are a bunch of entitled brats who’ve never worked an honest day in their lives. They think that they’re smarter than all of us too. They’ve had their hands in our pockets for forty years now, and I for one am sick of it. That press conference was embarrassing. Embarrassing for me as a fan, and would be embarrassing to anybody with a sense of self awareness and pride. He’s getting roasted in the press, and rightfully so. All those teams may well go through this sort of thing, but this is the Bears, our team. And one that allegedly takes pride in being a cornerstone team in the NFL, as well as heritage. But it seems to me that the only thing they value is money.

    Our money. We would be well served to remember that fact.

    Well, it’s too little too late. Pace was the obvious firing for over 4 years, how you left him after the Fox canning was beyond me. He should have been on thin ice after the Kevin White debacle. Your operation is so inept you squandered a first rounder on someone whom you should have foreseen the health issues. I hope for Jim Harbaugh’s sake he doesn’t give up his secure, prospering Michigan Gig to come back to this clown show organization. Still though, despite how bad the Bears look they aren’t Detroit, Jets, or Jacksonville level bad. But still, look how hitting on the QB draft can change things around. Look at how Joe Burrow singlehandedly turned the decrepit Bengal outfit into a playoff winner? Not that I expect them to go very far but still, to win a playoff game with that bad team? Shows you how bad Pace was to miss on so many 1st round picks.
