Lately, I have been overwhelmingly frustrated when reading anything about the Bears offseason moves or lack there of. Already too many players have drifted through and still linger in free agency that could turn our team into a contender while we "hibernate" and pinch our pennies. (Not to mention the few players on the trading block who the Bears should be bending over backwards to attempt to acquire.) I imagine that hearing about Jay Cutler's situation going from bad to worse excites the hopes of Bears fans everywhere, also Cutler hails from Santa Claus, Indiana and has admitted that he grew up a Bears fan. It would be a dream come true to have a Pro Bowl QB who grew up loving the Bears like all of us under center, finally bringing an end to the horrors that plague that position. Yet why do I have to open the paper and read why our management will do nothing to pursue someone who can turn around our franchise? Why do I have to read the quality articles from Bears fans on WCG knowing that all our questions, comments, and concerns will fall on deaf ears? I'm tired of hearing the Bears should offer this and that when I don't see any desire or passion from any of our management. Believing that the Bears problems will be solved by our coaching changes is a joke. It's like Angelo and Lovie are expecting to be gone by the end of next season and don't care about the franchise or winning.
Can we at least hear that the Bears are interested in these players who could turn this team around? Can we at least hear they are making offers even if those offers have been rejected or are along with other offers from other teams? I just don't get it anymore. This nonchalant attitude that echoes through Halas hall makes me ill. How is this helping this team become anything more than what we have been since removed from our Super Bowl year? And for some reason within the Bears it seems like they think all they are doing is the best things for the franchise. I used to really enjoy reading Larry Mayer's blog about the Bears on the official site but after he started posting comments from Bears' fans that disagreed with they're moves, he has shown that his head is securely fashioned up the a** of the Bears' management and thats where it shall stay. Where is the passion and pride of the Chicago Bears when we need it?
In conclusion, I realize that I am rambling but who better to ramble to than true Bears fans. If Bears management wants to continue this way then why don't they release a statement explaining that they will not be doing anything smart for the rest of the offseason outside of the draft, that way when news hits of potential players on the market who could really help our team we can just read about Urlacher in the weight room or that Bullocks decided on us because of our great tradition. Give me a break. I love the Chicago Bears more than any other team in existence. I believe in the players we have but we all know we are not ready to make a run at the Super Bowl. If they aren't preparing our team for the highest level of success they are preparing them for failure and disappointment. Please let the winds of change blow through Halas Hall...I'm growing weary of this.
