Oh it can be worse. There ARE two teams below us picking before us.....let's hope this doesn't happen to the Bears next year but with this club, one never knows....they seem to find lower rungs on the ladder easier than the higher ones...

FWIW I watched the Senior Bowl yesterday (more out of curiosity of seeing the general flow of performance than really looking at talent, although there definitely was some there), and what I saw was a microcosm of the John "Faux" led Bears the last 2 years...

The North team played hard, but screwed up at key times that prevented scoring.

Interesting that there was a 2:00 period at the end of each quarter, simulating the end of the half. Clock management was typical (bad) but Hugh Jackson was even worse. Fourth and 4, 10 seconds left on a running clock in easy FG range and the South could've run the clock down to 4-5 secs before taking the TO. Instead they take the TO with 10 secs left, kick the FG and leave time on the clock. They kick the FG but to top it off, Faux takes a TO to "ice the kicker" after the South's TO. Of course TO could've been used on the follow up drive.  Christ why is it so hard for coaches to understand something a 10 year old Madden player understands fully ?

I bet the good players on both these teams are praying that if they get drafted, just not by the Bears or Bengals.....

The Defense kept getting turnovers but the Offense couldn't gain any consistency. After a taking a 3 point lead, gave up a 2 score lead, then finally came close in the end to making it a game. Close but another loss. Sound familiar ? Unfortunately this is the John Faux signature with the Bears....

I love this team. Always have. I feel stuck in the 70's again (albeit with no Walter to see me through the dark times). There is some talent on the team but I don't get the feeling they have turned much of a corner. More like ran into the fire hydrant on their way to the corner. This team is f u c k e d McCaskeyed up and will seemingly remain so for the near future.

Grim ? Maybe. I sure as hell hope I'm wrong.........

I thought this guy could walk on water????

The Bears are reportedly making another change to John Fox’s coaching staff.

Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports that the team will part ways with wide receivers coach Curtis Johnson. Johnson will be the fifth member of Fox’s coaching staff to move on after the 2016 season, joining running backs coach Stan Drayton, outside linebackers coach Clint Hurtt, assistant defensive backs coach Sam Garnes and offensive line coach Dave Magazu.

Biggs reports that Johnson is expected to pursue another NFL job. One possibility could be in New Orleans as Johnson coached there before and the Saints saw John Morton leave to become the Jets offensive coordinator.

The next Bears wide receivers coach will be charged with helping develop Kevin White, who has played just four games over his first two seasons due to injury. The team may also move on without Alshon Jeffery, who can become a free agent in March after playing out last season on the franchise tag.

Well I kind of take this with a grain of salt because I know they have interest in Cutler, its just the price they cant afford.

I found this interesting, not that I respect ESPN's track record for accuracy. And I would question whether its via trade or via free agency after Cutler is cut by the Bears.
