    I had no problem with them going DE. It actually opens up a lot of things as well as the momentum of the game when their QB is running for his life (ask Cutler). I just think they got the wrong DE.

    You're right about that and I wouldn't doubt if Lovie had a lot to do with the Shea move (we know he loved D and didn't know shit about O). We can infer from the Long pick that maybe Emery might have gone in DeCastro's direction if he truly had a free hand. It was pretty stupid of ownership to have the balls to can JA/Ruskell and then turn around and insist the new GM be stuck with the old coaching regime one more year. No wonder Emery was dying to can Lovie and his cronies when we were eliminated from the playoffs on the last Sunday of the season.

    I'm not saying Emery is a God or anything but he's definitely been a breath of fresh air IMO. Making moves to modernize what was a very stale and stodgy franchise into a actual 2010+ NFL offense. Acquiring Marshall last year and Bushrod this year were bigger O-upgrades than JA pulled off in more than a decade at the helm. I have no idea why MrD loves Angelo so much...he sucked big time.

    For all the vitriol about Lovie and Amgelo here....

    They at least lasted more than 2 years and made a Super Bowl. All with a scrub QB.

    Emery couldn't even build around a Top 10 QB.

    Seems like Lovie and Jerry's "defensive philosophies" proved correct.

    If Lovie were still here, Shea and Fuller would in all likelihood be close to Pro Bowlers while the offense couldn't be much worse.

    I miss Lovie and his deer in the headlights look when things went south. I loved seeing that classic shot of him staring at the big screen watching a replay of what just happened like he was hoping for a different result. Classic.

    Remember when the Bears scored to take the lead over the Falcons late in the game and the Bears where so afraid of a runback on special teams that they pooch kicked on the kick off? 1 play after the defense forgot to cover the sidelines 35 yards down field the Falcons kicked a winning field goal...ah....classic Lovie.

    Everyone in the media loved Emery and Trestman during that first off-season. All that talk about treating players like men, using advanced scouting techniques.....

    I don't know how you truly believe this. Could it be possibly? Maybe, but to say in all likelihood that it would happen seems strange. Fuller I could possibly see but not Shea. Sheas wouldn't be on the Bears if Lovie was the coach anyway, he never would have drafted him.

    No, no they wouldn't have. Fuller likely isn't drafted at all.
