I hate to break it to everyone out here but this entire organization is a total and complete mess. Everyone from the General Manager to the guy who fills up the water bottles needs to be fired, and they need to start completely over. They have been fleeced by other teams and for the second straight year have no first or second round draft picks. This is not a recipe for success.
They overpaid for QB Jay Cutler and he has yet to show any one in the NFL anything. He is a less talented, gun slinger QB in the style of Bret Favre. While he doesn’t have the talent of Favre he also doesn’t have the talent on the roster Favre had for much of his career. Throughout the 2009 season all he proved was that he is hard to work with. Not a great way to improve a struggling organization.
To make matter worse they have turned over the offense and the defense to a couple of Detroit Lion rejects in Mike Martz and Rob Marinelli, the last time, these two were on the same staff they were heading the worst run football team in the history of the NFL. It seems that the Bears want to take a run at that title. Beyond the fact that Marinelli is the only NFL head coach to complete a NFL season without a single victory, he did a bad job as the Defensive line coach for the Bears in 2009, and he has never been a defensive coordinator.
So the Bears turn to Martz, who has been in NFL exile since 2009. Every one of their coaches’ jobs depends on Martz turning QB Cutler into a winner, he must do so with virtually no talent on the roster, and no draft picks to secure new talent. There is really no other way to spin this, 2010 is going to be a long year for the Chicago Bears.
