Another bust (or three) for Ryan Poles.


Zachary Thomas | Offensive Tackle | 6th Round | San Diego State

Apparently, this guy isn’t very good. And he’s in danger of being cut according to sources. This is BAD.

To make matters worse, personal favorite (because he went to Illinois), Doug Kramer, is out for a long time with a leg injury.

Two offensive linemen drafted this year and already causing problems. Where have we seen this before?

P.S. Jaquan Brisker (another draft pick) already broke his thumb. BUT, he is expected to be back for the first game of the season.

    If Ryan Poles is as bad as Pace the Cluster F–K McCaskeys have yet again managed to defy the odds and pick yet another Moron as Gm !! How can anyone be that inept , maybe they’re doing it on purpose !

    I have no idea how any general manager can have three busts in one draft. How do you do that?

    Fro Dog– It is easy to do. As I mentioned in an earlier pre-season post, it took a half dozen inner circle people at Halas Hall to talk McCaskey out of keeping Ryan Pace, so of course he hired his split image. He thinks this system is working. Also, we constantly have someone who has never done this job before so they learn on the job. What do you learn from the fastest…huge screw ups.
    If that isn’t enough….look to the White Sox to see how all over Chicago ownership gets involved in decisions they have no business making. They hire “old” friends who are sure to blow up playoff quality teams. Geniusness!!

    Fro, you can answer your own question by asking either Jerry Angelo, Phil Emery, or Ryan Pace. I’m sure any one of those three will be more than happy to provide you with an answer.

    EberLose said that the starters will play the first half of the game on Saturday. Good or bad idea? The way I see it, the past regimes didn’t do much with the starters in preseason games and not sure if it mattered. But I’m okay with them playing to at least *attempt* to be better come the regular season. Many other teams seem to be not playing the starters much or at all.

    Fro, it’s a good idea, mostly. If they’re playing well, maybe pull them a little sooner. I never liked the previous coaches not playing the starters in the preseason, basically treating them like a bunch of wusses. In addition to getting technique down, it also gets in the players into game day playing shape a lot faster, which has been a real issue with the Bears. Sure, there has been a couple seasons where they basically escape most of the season unscathed, but that’s the exception, not the norm. So, EberLose playing the starters is actually ok with me.
