The problem I believe with the Bears is that the GM has supposedly been the top football guy as opposed to the team President but that guy is usually extremely inexperienced. So I like where I think your mind is at in that the Bears need to bring in someone whose done it before.
I’m being lazy and horrible with names but the Texans old GM, or the one that was with the Browns for a couple years would not be bad choices. I’d keep the guy under pace who has helped with our drafts.
My dream would be to toss loads of cash at Ozzie Newsome to get him out of retirement. That would take a new owner to make happen though.
He's a red-ass, so wherever he goes he'll wear out his welcome in 3 years, but when you see what talent he brings in wherever he's been a GM - its worth putting up with it in the short term. Much of the talent you see on the current KC and Cleveland teams was brought in by Dorsey.
But as I said - he's a jackass even by NFL standards. You bring him in to infuse your roster with more talent, and then have another GM and Head coach on speed dial for when you are finally sick of him.
