Every known football & general sports site on earth has this if you want the details.

I've been mystified by the Bears for about 5 years. Who was the last defensive difference maker drafted to play in Chicago? Tommie Harris?

Jeebus. About time.

Finally. The QB debacle was awful to watch.

Now let's see the McCaskeys screw up the GM job search....

It's not just defensive difference makers that we have not been drafting, but that side has been skewed worse since Matt Forte is alive. Forte has been a god send and he was only drafted as insurance for Cedric Benson. The Ced mess is not something anyone wants to get me started on.

Just heard the Mad Genius resigned as well. So now JayJay, coming off injury, gets to break in another QB coach/OC...

Pray the Bears don't try to keep the Martz system in place without him. The Lions tried that move once. The result?

(0-16)

Throw in the Greg Olsen tarde this year. A third rounder, I believe?

And add to the fact that trading for Cutler took away high draft picks for 2 years. Worth the price, in my book, but it means your other picks need to be solid.

Melton has turned out well, but I think that is more coaching than drafting. Paea might be a wrecking ball against the run in the future, but who knows.

It was a third rounder, and Olsen probably would have led the team in receiving again. Letting Kreutz go screwed up their rotation, but at least it got them to finally realize that Omiyale is crap.

And you can't forget about Michael Haynes.

Mike Martz has about used up his welcome mat in the NFL. I wonder where he goes next?

They've finished all their interviews, and Phil Emery is the favorite for the GM spot. I would have preferred Marc Ross, but reading about Emery may have changed my mind. Was a coach at the Naval Academy for a few years, and was partly responsible for us drafting Urlacher when he was just an area scout.

We're also trying to steal Bob Bostad from Pittsburgh as our OL coach. If the former Wisconsin Badger OL coach can't fix our line, I don't think anybody can.

Emery gets the job.

My first reaction was that Phil Emery was not a strong enough choice. The Chiefs haven't done anything in recent years to garner such a hire & the position of 'Director of College Scouting" for four years as NFL Network said it makes it feel like we'll have a bad or mixed bag of output of GM moves. Best Wishes to the Guy but I don't feel confident this will work. Also, this may have been a Pioli stamped endorsement.

When the strongest praise his old boss has is that he's organized and a hard worker, a red flag pops up. I'd rather hear things like "great talent evaluator."

This is a case that proves that the McCaskeys really do hate change. This guy is friends with Angelo. I am not excited about this move.
