Yesterday it was announced that the three finalists to be interviewed for Head Coach of the Chicago Bears are Bruce Arians, Darrell Bevell and Marc Trestman. To me Bevell is somewhat surprising, and the final list is also. I guess ESPN’s Adam Schefter isn’t always right-yesterday he said Rick Dennison of Houston was a strong possibility due to his links with Jay Cutler from Denver.
Also heard yesterday that two candidates told Schefter that they had never participated in an interview with a more organized interviewer than Phil Emery. So I can only hope that regardless of the choice, Emery is going to make the right choice.
Again, I can only hope that the dog and pony parade for Ted Phillips and George McCaskey (aka the second interview) will not cause the Bears to lose a candidate to another team that will act more decisively.
And from the “you think we have it bad” file, when you have a moment, take a stroll north and visit the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel’s Packer page. This is hilarious. I and a friend usually independently visit this site after each devastating Packers loss. And again, it is nothing short of hilarious to read some of what is being said north of the border.
As recently as Saturday afternoon, most “experts” were picking the Packers to roll through the playoffs again with their “red hot hand.” After the 45-31 drubbing at San Francisco, Wisconsin fans and writers suddenly are calling for the head of defensive coordinator Dom Capers, and questioning GM Ted Thompson’s ability to draft. As quickly as Packer nation lauded these men, they are loathing them.
At least Bears fans make sense at who they are pissed at and when.
