At least that’s one less thing to worry/complain about. Today’s Chicago Tribune reports that current Bears director of player personnel Tim Ruskell has been eliminated from consideration to be the next GM. According to the article, the finalists are Jason Licht from the Patriots (the guy it is reported has absolutely no control under Bill Belichick) and Phil Emery of the Chiefs (the guy that helped draft Rex Grossman).
I know that’s not totally fair-Emery also helped draft Brian Urlacher in his first stint (1998-2004) with the Bears.
Aren’t the Bears the only team that needed to find a new GM that hasn’t yet hired one, which is typical? And per the article, this process could “drag into next week or beyond.”
Congrats to the New York Giants. Sorry to see Jim Harbaugh lose, but you have to hand it to the Giants-never anybody’s pick to make it to the Super Bowl, yet despite massive injuries they continue to shock the league and have success.
Also-Mike Tice isn’t going to Oakland, so at least that’s settled.
