Bear Changes

February 11, 2012

Greetings my fellow Bear fans, been a little busy, sorry for my lack of posts the past week.

Back to football, how did you guys enjoy the Super Bowl? It started a bit slow, but turned out to be a pretty good game. Me myself, I had to support the NFC representative the GMEN.

On another note, there’s speculation that Matt Forte will be tagged, which he seems to be receptive to as long as it has a positive impact towards a long term contract, which I hope the Bears will make happen. The Bears hired Jeremy Bates as the quarterbacks coach, reuniting him with Jay Cutler. That reunion should prove beneficial for us this coming season. Tim Holt was also hired as offensive line coach, after spending the last three seasons with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He’ll be working with Mike Tice, who was promoted to offensive coordinator. And just this morning Tim Bream, a Chicago Bear trainer for the last 19 years will be leaving to join his alma mater Penn State.

We shall have to see how all these changes will benefit our beloved Bears. Until next week BEARDOWN!!!


GM hunt picks up steam

January 20, 2012

Allrighty then Bear fans,let’s see what’s going on with our beloved team. Mike Martz did in fact retire, YaY! Jason Licht interviewed for the GM spot on Monday. They also refused the Vikings request to interview Jon Hoke for their defensive coordinator position, don’t blame them much for that, who wants to let a staff member go to an opposing team in your division?

The Giants college scouting director Marc Ross was interviewed on Wednesday for the GM spot, he was third behind Jason Licht and Jimmy Raye. Tim Ruskell was interviewed today. Mike Tice is being interviewed for the head coaching position after the Raiders released Hue Jackson.

On the Pro Bowl front, Matt Forte is going to attend his fist Pro Bowl, after passing his physical. He will be joined by corner Charles “Peanut” Tillman and special teamer Corey Graham.
