    True, very true. I think he might consider a position if he isn't the true GM but has final say.......for example if Washington wanted him after the season but wanted to keep Cerrato around or something. (Not sure his title is actually GM though...)

    • If we tank, JA could be gone with Lovie, but I'm not so sure. If we have a repeat of 08, than I think JA stays for sure. He's a had a great offseason for sure, now it's up to the coaches and players.

      My dream scenario if this were to happen:

      Shannahan with complete control over the O and shared GM responsibilities (aka he gets to pick the O players he wants, but JA has the final say if we go D or O).

      We hire a solid vet to be the DC and basically have complete controll over all defensive play calling and schemes, preferably a 4-3 Blitz Heavy Scheme similar to Jimmy Johnson.

      JA as the GM with final say but works with Shanny.

          Correction, we don't have the SAM!

          Briggs probably more so would fit as the MIKE and Lach would have to move out to WILL.

            Briggs and Urlacher are sub par at best as blitzers.

            • What was that quote used here a while back?

              Something like.....Briggs was handcrafted by god as the perfect cover 2 WILL.

              Yeah....not a blitzer.

              • I'm not the biggest fan of Turner but he gets way too much blame amongst the Bear fan base. Do you know how hard it is to design an offense without having a legit QB? Granted the run game has usually been pretty good but last year we had a game manager type QB, no offensive line, and a very bad WR core. How is Turner supposed to do anything with that to work with?

                I'm anxious to see how he does now that he's got a weapon in Cutler, Forte will hopefully be better, our OL is upgraded, and I think even though our WR's aren't that great they will be better as well this year.

                Lets see how Turner does with some flexibility in the passing game. If he does not do well I'm on board with those who want him canned but I'm willing to give him a chance now that he has something to work with.

                • perfect situation would be of JA and Shanny are both there. With JA with the final call.

                  I really like that concept, if the defense doesn't pick it up. Not saying it won't (because, i think it definitely, definitely could), but, if worse does come do worse. we go 7-9... i think Lovie is gonna be on the hot seat.

                  • yea i think most of the Turner statements are just jokes anyways.

                    • Our O has been able to score points. Its never pretty and not always consistent but even last season we were 15th in scoring.

                      • and also second in turnovers and one of the best special teams. Im not completely a Turner hater, but usually the only good drive we have is the first one of the game. I dunno who is to blame for that.
                        hm. looks like i need a sig...

                        • I would love to see a stat for 3 and outs. That is my biggest problem with Turner. His play calling is very predictable, IMO.

                            When you have mediocre QB's it's pretty hard to be creative in your play calls.

                            • Turner's problems have been inconsistency and trying to get too cute at times. However, I don't feel like going into detail about it.

                              • u gotta say though, when Grossman was on like the first 5 weeks 2 years ago, the playcalling was nice.
