:D Right?! I'm pretty ******* jazzed about this. It's like we're...trying...Freaky!
Well, I wanted him as OC before we went with Martz but his career is not looking so hot after failing out of Seattle. Looks like he's just the QB coach and they're making Tice full OC. Not sure what he can really bring to the table but his familiarity to Cutler is a plus.
I approve, at least there's some continuity in this offense. I think they'll do a good job of playing to Cutler's strengths. Tice will still be the OC, but it will be more of a collective effort (ie Tice calling Bates' plays). Now let's get Cutler some weapons (includes paying Forte).

I have to say I was pretty happy to hear that Bates was the hire. Bates and Tice will taylor this offense to what Jay does best. The things we started doing when we were hot, I think theres gonna be a lot more of that. Cutler is going to have the system to succeed, Emery needs to get him the firepower.
yea i know. apparently some bears already expected him to be a teammate
Vaughn McClure (@vxmcclure23) said on Twitter that, before he was tagged, Avril was to be one of the Bears' top targets, and that "Even some Bears thought there was a strong possibility Avril was going to be a teammate next season."
McClure isn't as prolific as some other beat writers, but it seems like he has some really good ins and when he says something, it almost always is true.
I approve of the Campbell signing. At least we get a more established guy as a backup. I would also approve of the Mincey signing. He would be a great fit for our scheme. By providing depth, that gives us flexibility to get more talent in the draft, regardless of position, also guys won't get rushed into roles they are not ready for.
