I think,that if you are serious about coaching/GM/team prez changes,you do your due diligence now,
put out feelers as to who you can possibly get to build a winning organization.
Considering the tampering rules,you can really only talk to a few,without permission.
But it is important to gauge the interest of the top prospects,and what it might take to bring them in.
Cowher,Gruden and any big names,need to hear how you will allow them to operate,and what resources you will give them.
It's important to hire people that know football,and have the talent and drive to succeed.
I'm sure those in the business of football,know who the up and comers are,I surely don't.
Building a perennial contender doesn't happen overnight,but you can easily point to the organizations that have.
Getting and DEVELOPING a franchise QB,is a huge part of that,something the current staff has failed to do.
This was a great read. Interesting questions posed as well as interesting insights and views. 3N, great intial post to start the thread. I agree with many of your views and statements.
Before you talk about any coaching change, IMO, you need to determine whether you want the same management personel. While I don't know much about T. Phillips, I can't say definitively as to whether he stays or goes. 3N brought up a very good point and the big Wild Card to this whole discussion: what will George McCaskey do? Who is he? What are his views on the current state of the Bears? Is he a Rocky Wirtz in "Bears" clothing or is he just like "Mike"?
