    I’d have to disagree there’s a number of teams worse off such as the Los Angeles Clippers and Minnesota Timberwolves.

      I can honestly say the Bears are more of a disappointment then both of those franchises due to the start they had. Neither team you brought up has ever won a title in their sport. The Bears for some time were the Yankees of their sport. They started football. The Clips and T’Wolves did no such thing. Thank you Steven for the input as always. It is much appreciated

    Most of the problems you mention are really one problem: lack of talent. That’s Angelo’s fault, and that can be (we don’t know if it has been) fixed. Any organization will look bad if it has no talent. If they bring in a good GM, most of the problems you mentioned disappear. I’m not a huge Lovie Smith fan–but although Smith isn’t a great gameday coach–he’s not a bad coach. He has a winning record despite a lack of talent on the team. If the stories about Cutler wanting Martz out are true, then your argument about the firing of Martz makes no sense. The Ted Philips problem can be fixed but of course, the McCaskey problem can’t–however, if Angelo’s firing is George McCaskey’s doing, then that’s a positive step, not a negative one. And by the way, a writer should know that it’s “would’ve” not “would of.”

      thank you for your input. it was noted. I have nothing to combat people with your thinking. You will always be manipulated by the big name corps and organizations. The Bears have you under their spell. Time to wake up and watch another NFL team perform. It’s all about talent evaluation, Angelo had ample opportunities at talent, he just blew it. Dont say the Bears dont have talent, you’d be surprised what they could do without Lovie Smith destroying everything. And thank you for your copy editing prowess, without you us writers would have nothing to laugh at. Thanks for your wonderful contributions to our site.

        Now, now Tony–no need to get testy. The Bears have some talent, but they lack depth of talent. If you look at what I actually said, I agreed with what you said about their talent level–I just think that with the right GM, the talent level can be fixed. At the same time, I don’t absolutely trust that they’ll make the right hire–hence the Ted Philips comment–that problem can be fixed, but it hasn’t been fixed yet. And I didn’t say that Lovie Smith didn’t mess things up–he’s not a good game day coach–but he does have a winning record with the talent he has–talent that even you say is lacking. As for my copy editing prowess–laugh all you want, but I write for a living, and have spent many years teaching writing a the college level. Having an opinion and a forum doesn’t mean you’re correct. That being said, thank you for taking the time to answer, despite whatever differences of opinion we may have, I appreciate your thoughts and the opportunity to reply.

          By the way–I meant correct about the copy editing. As I said, I agree with most of what you said about the Bears’ talent level, as well as ownership and management.

          Sorry but I disagree with you the bears have very little talent and what talent they do have is aging. The bears need to fire Lovie he is useless gameday or not he can’t coach he has road the backs of his defense to a winning record. The guy has no faith in his team he is a complete waist. The only GM we will get is gonna be a moron cause anyone who would come in to this situation the way it is would have to be a moron. As far as your spell check ability goes everyone makes mistakes you should reread your post

          • Frank

            Jamie–I guess it can be argued that either the Bears have some talent that isn’t coached well, or little talent that is victimized by average or poor coaching. I never said Smith was a good game day coach; in fact, I said just the opposite. But if he has no talent, why would he have faith in his team? I think he may have too much faith in them–thinking they’re better players than they actually are. As far as spellcheck ability, I never said I was perfect, and I do have a typo or two in there. I may have been blunt with my remark about Tony’s error, but I always appreciated when mine were corrected and I’m sure, that as a writer always striving to be better, he would appreciate it as well–my tone was a little harsh though (by the way–spell checkers are often wrong too). But as I said, I agree with most of what he said.

            Lovie is reason No. 4 on my list. You’re right, he should of been fired years ago with Jerry Angelo! Thank you for your input Jamie

            wow Frank. you are just the human spell checker i guess…

  • Frank

    Hey Tony–if the Bears do make Tim Ruskell the GM as is recently rumored, you could justifiably write that they’re the worst run organization in any industry anywhere in the world!
