The word “thorough” is the one that I keep seeing when people describe Phil Emery and discuss the process for hiring the next Bears head coach. He has had round one of interviews, and it appears that Darrell Bevell and Marc Trestman are headed to round two, and there are probably a few others that we don’t know about.
It makes me happy, believe it or not, that Emery is taking his time and figuring out things. He has to think about things like the cap, the coaching style, and how those two interact. It isn’t easy.
We have a lot of old guys that we will have to jettison or modify their contracts. Url’s best days are behind him, while Briggs is also another year longer in the tooth.
The returns are very early, but I think promising that we didn’t take the first swinging d1ck we found and anoint him the coach. This year’s draft will be very interesting to see as well as I am sure that Emery’s hands were tied last year a bit.
This is Emery’s baby now. It is all on him. I hope I am right. I am cautiously optimistic.
