Here's the deal. Many people here were absolutely certain that Polian was forcing his people on the Bears. Many criticized the Bears for listening to a man his age, but nobody can name a more qualified NFL executive who could have been hired to do the consulting.
And then we heard many say Polian was going to force the Indy guys on the Bears. But it didn't happen.
Then the complaint was taht the GM was going to have to pick from the guys he was forced to consider - even though every person with knowledge of the situation has reported that the GM candidates were asked who their coaching candidates were, and Poles included Eberflus.
Now it is reported that between George, Teddy, Polian and one other, they were split 2 for Caldwell and 2 for Quinn. And the GM we were certain was being told what to do hired Eberflus.
And you STILL insist they didn't let him do his own thing.
There's no reasoning with you.
Because it makes zero sense but what it does do is protect the Bears owner.
1 of 2 things are true.
1. Bears owner did what he said he was going to do and picked his GM and HC.
2. Our new gm from KC was completely in love with Eberflus, he didn’t even want to talk to other candidates. So much so that he reached out via back channels and told the bears before even meeting them to setup a 2nd interview with this guy. In which case if this guy flops he needs to be fired right along with him.
