Well, it’s an OK day. Ron’s gone, Harry’s gone, a bunch of other no-namers are gone. But now we’re left with the truth: Mike Martz could come to Chicago.
Mike Martz is a horrible offensive coordinator. His travels have been well-documented. But the final straw for me (and hopefully Bears management) was when Martz ripped Jay Cutler earlier this year.
Hopefully everyone knows this, but I’ll say it again: JAY CUTLER IS OUR FRANCHISE. Like it or not, he’s a huge piece of what we’re going to do moving forward. That means getting him a better OL, at least one veteran WR, and a good coach that Cutler respects and can break him down/build him up.
You thought Jay Cutler and Ron Turner/Pep Hamilton’s relationship was frosty? If you had Cutler – Martz, you’d get frostbite just by going to the game.
Psst….don’t tell Boomer, but I’m going to get him to switch FireLovieSmith to NoMikeMartz. Either that or I’ll start my own blog with that name.
Larry Mayer puts his legendary spin on Ted Phillips standing way, way too long at the podium.

Ron Turner: I did the best job with what I had. And really, he’s kinda right.
Jay Cutler really likes Jeremy Bates. Jerry Angelo, GO GET THIS MAN!
Mike Imrem: The Bears are full of crap.
Barry Rozner: The failure of the Bears is higher than the coordinators.
Jeff Dickerson has some great quotes from the presser.
