Bobby DePaul out as Bears Pro Personnel Director

The Bears have relieved Bobby DePaul of his duties as Pro Personnel Director.  DePaul served in that role since 2001.  He brought us such Free Agent acquisitions as Thomas Jones, Moose Muhammed, and John Tait among others.  DePaul was considered instrumental in putting together the Jay Cutler deal.  Funny, I didn’t hear much about DePaul’s involvement when Jerry Angelo was peacocking last spring when the trade went down.  Now, after a disappointing season, we hear the DePaul was a big part of the deal?  Hmm…

It was been rumored that DePaul and Lovie Smith often didn’t see eye to eye.  So does DePaul’s ouster mean that Lovie is actually gaining power this offseason?  What is this, Bizarro World where up is down and black is white?  It just doesn’t make sense.

Sure, DePaul had his share of misses, including last season’s questionable pickups along the offensive line like Orlando Pace and Frank Omiyale.  But consider the multitude of draft busts at the feet of College Scouting Director Greg Gabriel.  How do he and Angelo keep their gigs, not to mention Lovie, while DePaul gets the escort out of Halas Hall?  The more I get to know the organization, the more I realize it’s totally fucked.  Happy offseason!
