      Isn’t Emery the GM? It SHOULD be his decision alone on whether or not Tresty returns.

      • Huge Bear’s Penis

        Emery is playing with the McCaskeys money. They will let him know if they are willing to eat the rest of the contract.

  • Bears-4-Ever

    I would like Trestman gone…but that was not the voting question. The question was will he be back next year? I must say with major disappointment in my heart that I think he will be. Just knowing the history of the McCaskeys and how the Bears have been run over the last 20+ years. 🙁

    If Emery wanted him fired bad enough I’m sure he could get it done but then he’s on notice. Ginny and Co. don’t take kindly to paying people not to show up to work. If all the coaches have 2 years left that’s a lot of salaries to eat. I’m guessing Nessman stays and Tucker goes.

  • CanadaBear

    Just reading the link to PFF in Jeff’s twitter feed. Melt is having a great year in Dallas. We’ll see him on Thursday. Also, Pep is playing pretty well. Just one more reason to dislike Pep. He definitely lived up/down to his rep. First two years played very well, 3rd year took some games off, 4th year mailed in a bunch of games. Fucker!

    • Dallas Cowboys: Defensive tackle Henry Melton
      leads all defensive/nose tackles in Pass Rushing Productivity at 10.6.
      He has six sacks, four hits and 18 hurries on 213 pass rushes.

      Corey Graham is having himself a good season too. Always felt he was under-rated cuz of his size.

      Buffalo Bills: Cornerback Corey Graham has
      allowed just 43.2% of passes thrown his way to be caught; the
      second-lowest rate for all cornerbacks who have been thrown at 25 or
      more times.

      Maybe Mundy isn’t so bad?

      Chicago Bears: Over the last two weeks Ryan Mundy has been thrown at twice. He’s intercepted both passes.

      • DaBearsBlog

        Mundy has been serviceable.

        • Ryan’s Mom

          He’s been our best defensive back and maybe the most consistent player on the defense. More than serviceable in fairness.

          Bears cast-offs are getting coached up properly.

        • He’s no Will Hill!

      • CanadaBear

        I always liked Graham. Gotta go with Jeff on Mundy, serviceable at best.

        • BerwynBomber

          And Graham had that crucial OT pick of PManning in Denver a few years ago during Baltimore’s run to the SB. There are a ton of HoF DBs who would love to have that moment on their resume. Humungous play.

  • I voted ‘no’ because I read the book “The Secret”

  • From PFF

    What’s interesting is that the teams at the top of the draft order don’t necessarily need a quarterback. Here’s a look at how the Top 10 of the draft might shake out, and whether the Top 10 teams would draft Mariota or Winston:

    1. Oakland: This year’s second-round quarterback, Derek Carr, has played reasonably well. It’s hard to believe the Raiders would take a quarterback high in the first round this year.

    2. Jacksonville: The Jaguars are even less likely to draft a first-round quarterback than the Raiders. Jacksonville just took Blake Bortles with the third overall pick this year, and it’s inconceivable that they’d spend a Top 3 pick on a quarterback again. That means that if the Jaguars are picking first or second, they may try to do what the Rams did when they shipped the second overall pick to Washington and got a bounty of draft picks in exchange for the pick that became Robert Griffin III.

    3. New York Jets: The Jets desperately need a quarterback. Geno Smith may remain on the roster next year, but there’s no way the Jets will pass on a potential franchise quarterback if one is available when they pick in the first round.

    4. Tampa Bay: The Bucs’ brass doesn’t seem to think highly of Mike Glennon, and Josh McCown is only a short-term answer. Tampa Bay is highly likely to draft a quarterback next year.

    5. Tennessee Jake Locker will be gone next year, but has Zach Mettenberger done enough as a rookie to convince the Titans that he’s their quarterback of the future? If not, the Titans could be a landing spot for Winston or Mariota.

    6. Washington: This is the most interesting question on the board: Would Washington cut ties with RG3 and draft his successor in 2015?

    7. New York Giants Despite the major disappointment that the Giants’ offense has been this season, Eli Manning likely isn’t going anywhere any time soon.

    8. Carolina: Not happening. Cam Newton is entrenched as the franchise starter. (It’s also still entirely possible that the Panthers will win the NFC South and go from a Top 10 pick to a pick somewhere in the 20s.)

    9. Minnesota: Teddy Bridgewater was a first-round pick this year, which means there will be no first-round quarterback in Minnesota next year.

    10. St. Louis: With the Rams likely moving on from Sam Bradford, a first-round quarterback is a strong possibility.

    • Trac

      Teams that are in the market for QB’S will trade up. If Trestman stays, it’ll be interesting to see if he tries to get a QB. I would be shocked to see him fired this year.

      • CanadaBear

        I think Nessman stays and we don’t go QB high in the draft. After next year when Nessman is again under whelming and fired, we draft a QB to sit behind Jay for a year and learn what not to do.

        • Unfortunately I think you’re right. However, Emery did surprise us once already by firing Lovie even though he won 10 games and still had a year on his contract.

          • CanadaBear

            I just think Emery will hire a new HC after next year and they will select the QB together.

      • BlameAngelo

        Why do you pay your QB 20 million a year and then spend your first pick on another QB who’s looking for a payday? We pick the best DE in the draft, or the best LT. It’s real simple. Or we get semi-smart and trade our top pick for two lower first rounders. Get a safety/corner and a top OL guy. Round 2 we get ourselves a top RB. Yes, a top RB.

        • Trac

          To save his job?

        • BerwynBomber

          “Why do you pay your QB 20 million a year and then spend your first pick on another QB who’s looking for a payday?”

          Because it’s the most important position in all of team sports and Jay will gone in two years or less? Is this a trick question? (FYI: the new CBA eliminates the huge paydays for top picks before they’ve ever played a down.)

          In terms of an O-lineman … ummm … no … at least not that early unless some can’t-miss future pro bowler falls in our lap. The Oline has had enough drafts picks and FA money sunk into it the last few years (and three of our five starters are quality to high quality). Focus on D and maybe QB (if one is attractive enough). Everything else is a luxury.

        • Trac

          MB?

    • wreckinball

      Bears won’t draft a QB because they are stuck with Cutler two more years and have gigantic holes in their D

      At least I don’t think they would be that stupid

      • I think they can draft one and let him sit and learn behind Cutty for those two years, preferably under a new HC.

        It’s not as if drafting QBs in the first round is financially prohibitive anymore, and the Bears can always claim, “Well, the Packers drafted Rodgers even with Favre still on the team, and that seemed to work.”

        How Cutler would react is another matter, but who cares at this point? He can either let the move motivate him, or he can whine like a girl and demand a trade. I think Cutler would just shrug it off and light a smoke.

        • CanadaBear

          Nobody would trade for him. If he doesn’t like it, too bad. It’s not as if most of us care what he thinks at this point (fans or mgmt).

          • SC Dave

            What Cutler thinks is about the last consideration I’ve ever imagined as a Bears fan.

          • BerwynBomber

            My suspicion is that Jay would be okay in the QB Room with a young understudy. I don’t envision any “Favre freezing out Rodgers” stuff unless Marshall gets in his head. By all accounts Favre was a hillbilly diva the last half of his GB career and Rodgers was a razor sharp/quick study. So was probably a bad mix. Jay has his shortcomings but diva doesn’t seem to apply. And let’s be honest. The dude got his big payday, he probably realizes (at this point) his professional limitations, and he seems set at home and in fatherhood. For all we know he might look forward to his clipboard-carrying/ballcap-wearing/veteran back-up/hero-off-the-bench years.

        • wreckinball

          Yeah it worked for GB, but Bears have too many holes to fill

    • Like I said in a previous thread, most of the “top” teams in the draft are still evaluating their QBs.

      We have to root for the Bucs and Jets to win some since it’s almost certain they’ll draft one.

      Now you guys know why I wouldn’t have minded losses to the Minny and Bucs (esp Bucs since that would have likely guaranteed Trestman getting terminated). We could always trade down to a team that does want a QB if Emery doesn’t believe in Mariotta or Winston.

      We can probably nab a good MLB with a pick in the teens (We can then kick Bostic out to WLB where I said he should have been since day one, and move Christian Jones to SLB) and a solid S in the late first or early second a la Cards with Deon Buchanan.

      • CanadaBear

        They’re pretty easy to dislike. Nessman seems like a good guy but not HC material. The players are either woefully under performing or a few of them are more hurt than we know. I think you had much higher expectations than me. I was 8-8 to 10-6 if we got lucky. I could easily see us end at 6 wins.

        • tobijohn

          You were that pessimistic before the season started? Man, I was the exact opposite. The dichotomy between my expectations for this team and what has actually unfolded is incredible. That’s why this year has been such a massive disappointment for me. Probably the most poignantly disappointing of my Bears fandom. …

          • CanadaBear

            I’ve never really been a PE fan and Nessman has always seemed like an odd fit at HC. When everyone was bagging on Lovie I kept saying, “careful what you wish for”. Unfortunately it came to fruition. I’m disappointed but not shocked. I expected more from both sides of the ball. Assumed ST’s were going to continue to suck since PE refuses to shape the roster into a real team. He has no clue about team chemistry or leadership. He has a roster full of players that don’t mesh for whatever reason.

        • Big Mike

          I had between 10 and 13 wins. That’s why I don’t like this team. They should have been much better. Trestman has gotten less out of the talent on this roster. Very inefficient, rudderless, no identity or character.

          • SC Dave

            Or, perhaps, less talent that you think there is. There are two legitimate pro bowlers on this team (well, one anyway). Can hardly crow about “talent” when that is the case.

          • Big Mike

            At the end of last year, everyone on this board was amped up about the talent on offense. Strong line, TE, WR1, WR2, Running Back, QB. The offensive weapons are in place and underperformed. Starts with the coaching staff.

  • BerwynBomber

    One small silver living of recent note? Jared Allen has flashed the last three games. Granted, it was against two bottom feeding OLs (TB and DET) and one struggling LT (MINN) but he has flashed. So maybe the two year deal won’t be a complete waste.

    • CanadaBear

      I remember reading a couple of weeks ago he’s still capable of whoopin’ up on crappy LT’s. Hopefully he keeps it up for the last 4 games.

  • BerwynBomber

    Gotta go with Barb’s Pats in the game of the day. I sense NE will pound the ball down the throat of the Cheese. Cheese would be smart to look for DTs and MLBs in next year’s draft. The Matthews move to ILB was smart but long term he’s better as an OLB.

    Pats and Seattle are the two best overall teams in the NFL. But Rodgers and PManning make, respectively, GB and DEN especially dangerous. PITT could be dangerous too if they make the post-season. BALT also.

    • Barb UMihai Mar

      They’ll pound the ball if they see nickel, they’ll pass against base.
      With Paker D in base the screen game will be showcased in it’s beauty tonight by the Patriots. You can just feel it.
      Will people call Patriots D elite after this game if they shut down Paker O ? Probably not. At least on this site it should.

    DaBearsBlog @dabearsblog
    “Bears need to add 2-3 solid cover guys at LB, CB, S this year.”

    Bears need more than cover guys at LB. Basically at LB and S you don’t know what you have. You might need five new starters in those positions alone. Bostic, Conte and Mundy are serviceable and especially good as projected back-ups/STers but that might be the extent of their worth.

    CB seems fine. Jennings and Fuller are a competent NFL CB tandem (thought Jenning’s replacement will be needed in the next couple/few years). Louis-Jean might be an eventual nickel guy.

    • Barb UMihai Mar

      The Bears have more than solid cover CBs and Ss. The problem is with the LB corp seeing that Bostic is poor and the plan was for him to take the reign this year.

      PS; What does ‘cover guys’ mean ? The Bears play zone. So they are poor in covering zones while dealing with pathetic predictable play calling. We don’t really know what these guys can do in coverage.

      PS2: I though the Bears will play nickel this year. Play the run with the Front 6 and blitzing Ss and keep 5 DBs on the field as a base D. That plan alone would improve the coverage in the hands of a real Bears DC. I’d resign Tillman in that context and let his roam middle of the field Woodson style covering TEs.

      • BerwynBomber

        But can you count on Tillman to stay healthy? That’s the key. The man might just be breaking down at his age. The Woodson comparison is apt except that Woodson is absolute freak in terms of an athlete and his health. The norm is for guys to start breaking down at Tillman’s age (or Lach’s or Briggs’, etc).

        Agree about the “cover” aspect. Didn’t know what that quite meant, but Conte (as much grief as he gets) is a very good cover S. The problem is he can’t stay healthy (and he’s below average at run support). Conte’s fragile. And I don’t mean that in questioning his heart sort of way. I just think physically he’s too undersized.

  • Barb UMihai Mar

    The Patriots are 3.5 points underdogs against the Packers. Who likes betting… bet your savings on them. Are you kidding me ? This is the 3rd time in 1 month I’ll make easy money off their backs. Denver and Colts the other 2 times. Thank you Las Vegas, you morons.
    Prediction: Pakers 23 -Patriots 38.

    • BerwynBomber

      Tend to agree. Rodgers is enough of a one-man band to potentially pull this off (he almost did it last year against a superior SF team in the playoffs) but the Pats are too well-rounded for the Cheese and, oh yeah, they have a decent trigger man themselves. Plus, and most importantly, the Belichick/McCarthy comparision. McCarthy is a good coach. Belichick is an all-timer.

      Still, I’m going with the under here, just to be a contrarian. Pats 23 Pack 17.

      • Barb UMihai Mar

        The Under is at 58 i think. So you can indulge even more. Way more.

    Fuck the 2014 Chicago Bears. I don’t see this version fighting for this inch:

    ▶ Al Pacino – Any Given Sunday – “Inch By Inch” – YouTube

    Trestman impressed me this summer went he suspended Martelleus after the Fuller altercation. But where is Trestman now?

    His team has zero discipline (see offensive penalties). His team has zero sense of urgency. And I (and most of you) are hungrier for them to win than he is. If there is a cancer in the locker room his ass needs to remove it. When a losing mentality permeates the locker room, he needs to counter it with consequence. I don’t care if it’s Jay or Brandon or anyone else in the room, there must be consequences for being/playing/thinking/acting like a fucking looser.

    Treat them like men. Treat them equally. But don’t treat them with kid gloves. Kid gloves are always worn by losers.

    Dave Toub for HC.

    • SC Dave

      I agree with all of this except the last sentence.

  • huntinbare

    could someone explain for me how this should go down. These thoughts are raising questions in my head about how to proceed toward a better defense going into next year.
    As a GM facing this bleak future that has been verified by the play on the field in 2014….
    Do I fire my Defensive Coordinator immediately after the season so that I can work on a replacement before even trying to figure what I might see as “draft needs” to fill the problem areas?
    .
    How much input do I take from my head coach on hiring a new d-coordinator?

    Do I use my own strategy on how to re make the D; and hire the DC to fit that?
    or
    Do I hire the best available talent and then adopt their philosophy?
    At this point do I try to fit the new D-coordinators needs to rebuild the talent through the draft?

    • CanadaBear

      Good questions HB! If it were me, I’d fire the lot of them. However, that isn’t likely. If Nessman stays he has to be consulted on the pick but not sure how much weight it carries. If we go 3-4 we have to draft or sign a Ted Washington type for NT. Other than that, we have enough DL men. Our back 7 is a nightmare. We don’t have even 1 LB we can count on. Jennings, Fuller, Hurst are OK at CB/Nickel but another playmaker would make a huge difference. Conte, Mundy and Vereen are OK at best but at least one playmaker is necessary and preferably two. Tucker isn’t great by any stretch but he’s been dealt a shitty hand. Same with Camel.

      • SC Dave

        Any chance Ego can bulk out to NT potential? Agree on the LBs – none of them appear to be NFL caliber players.

    Watched the Oregon game a bit last night waiting for the Hawks/kings tilt;
    and I was impressed by their discipline…
    very few penalties throughout the year
    not saying we need Mark Helfrich as our new HC; but maybe Marc T. should spend some time with the Oregon head coach understanding his techniques and learn how to infuse that level of discipline to our 3 phases, so we start eliminating some of our uglier features.
    he does say he is going to work at fixing things; so why not enroll in summer school out in Oregon…

  • BearDown100393

    I get all the Packers hatred and what not. And yeah, I’m a fan of the Bears. But let’s put some perspective on the current statuses of both Green Bay and Chicago. Now I’m cherry picking off Wikipedia here but apparently 364,122 nauseating Cheeseheads are Packers shareholders. In comparison, we’ve got Virginia McCaskey, sole owner. The Cheese hired Mark Murphy as its Chairman, CEO and President. Murphy played for Washington, had a couple of appearances in the Super Bowl, was a union player rep and after his player career became a college AD. Not a bad pedigree. We got George McCaskey. His qualification was being born a McCaskey. As for president, we’ve got Ted Phillips. He got that job not because of football and everything to do with glad handing City Hall to put the toilet lid on top of Soldier Field. Mark Murphy has 3 titles with his team and apparently does them better than McCaskey and Phillips combined. Green Bay has Ted Thompson as it General Manager. We’ve got Phil Emery. And furthermore, the Cheese have Mike McCarthy as HC while we’ve got Marc Trestman. Player personnel? Well when all the bs is set aside, it really is about Aaron Rodgers versus Jay Cutler. The largest controversy Green Bay faced was kicking Favre out of town and replacing a future HOF QB with a younger, better future HOF QB. Us? We’ve got Jay Cutler and plethora of alibis and excuses. And yet, “I hate the Cheese”. Maybe that is why the Bears generally get waxed by Green Bay as an annual event. Rivalry? Right now, the Bears have killed it. The rivalry is dead because we’re not competitive. Compare the personnel from top to bottom and it is no big shock as to why. Now if those collective shareholding knuckleheads and can figure it out and bang out an hierarchy that produces winning, what the hell is the problem with the McCaskeys?

    Throw in the NY Giants and Jets.

    The Oakland “Lets Fire ANOTHER Head Coach” Raiders.

    The Washington Deadskins.

    Tennessee Titans.

    Jacksonville Jaguars.

    My advice: Drink less, tweet less and, WHATEVER YOU do, DON’T drink and tweet.

      Carolina is awful. And yet the Panthers beat the Lions in Week#2 and both beat the Bears. Ugh.

      • AlbertInTucson

        I can’t include anybody who BEAT the Bears in MY assessment but, yes, Carolina is a mess and Cam Newton is taking a beating.

          So much changes from week to week regarding the rosters and injury reports so I think it is worth a mention.

        In retrospect, that was the Bears worst loss of the season.

    • BerwynBomber

      I’m guessing he meant Tampa Bay. Lovie took full responsibility for losing their game due to their 12 man on the field penalty.

      Nobody expected much of the teams you mentioned — except SF of course.

      • AlbertInTucson

        That is SO Lovie,no?

      • AlbertInTucson

        Still a stupid tweet.

    The AFC North can stop beating it’s “Oooh, lookit all the teams above .500” Drum because, based on today’s results, those records are obviously inflated by virtue of playing the NFC South this season.

    The Steeler defense had that “Mel Tucker” look today, no?

    Ike Taylor & Troy Polamalu are soiling their reputations.

    As Charles Barkley so succinctly put it: “Father time is undefeated.”

      Oh I dunno, Troy’s hair still looks Head & Shoulders fresh.

      • AlbertInTucson

        Sigh, I have fond memories of having had hair. The ones that haven’t turned gray have abandoned ship.
