This site is created by Chicago Bears fans, for Chicago Bears fans.
We want the Chicago Bears to win and live up to the great past history of the franchise as well as the hopes and dreams of sports fans in the great city of Chicago and the state of Illinois, and those that have emigrated elsewhere but still retain their loyalty.
This site was originally set up to focus specifically on Ron Turner, our completely inept offensive coordinator, who has a career of utter failure with the University of Illinois football program as well as the Chicago Bears, thus twice punishing the fans of these two programs. Ron AVERAGES in the bottom 20% when compared to his peers, over 17+ years of coaching in a variety of locations. It is incomprehensible to all of us how he is continually offered employment when his history is so comprehensively futile. To make this even more frustrating, every decade or so the offense comes out of its shell and hits it big for about half the season (such as when the Illini made the Sugar Bowl, or when the Bears got to the Super Bowl in 2006), only to fall apart in the critical, big game. This brief showing seems to gain him another 8-10 years of futility back to his historical norm.
Now Ron has moved on to
the Stanford Cardinal Indianapolis Colts Tampa Bay Buccaneers Florida International University the Carolina Panthers as offensive coordinator receivers quarterbacks coach head coach coaching consultant. We will welcome the Cardinal Colts Bucs Golden Panthers Panthers fans and their frustration with Ron’s predictable play calling, inability to tailor his game plan to take advantage of talent on hand or the opponent’s intentions, and general ineptness.
Ron bolted from the Stanford Cardinal without even (badly) calling a play (much to the dismay of all Pac Ten fans that don’t cheer for Stanford) and somehow sneaked onto the
Colt’s Bucs NFL offensive staff Florida International campus Panthers staff. Our slight revenge as Bears fans for the 2006 Super Bowl loss was to hand the Colts fans Ron. While as Bear zealots we have no love for the Colts, Bucs Golden Panthers Panthers, we will make an exception and gladly allow the Colts Bucs Golden Panther Panther fans to come here for the purpose of commiserating about how terrible Ron is.
Ron was finally fired from the Bears after the 2009 season, the third in a row where the Bears failed to make the playoffs. To Ron’s credit, he was better than the absolutely inept offensive coordinators he replaced, Shea and Shoop. But this only shows the Bears overall inability to select coaches of any sort, or have a GM strategy.
That is why we now are focusing on firing the entire Bears management team, which includes
Jerry Angelo, GM
Lovie Smith, Head Coach
Mike Martz, Offensive Coordinator
Rod Marinelli, Defensive Coordinator
Mike Tice, Offensive Coordinator
Phil Emery, GM
Marc Trestman, Head Coach
Aaron Kromer, Offensive Coordinator
Mel Tucker, Defensive Coordinator
Ted Phillips, President
Ryan Pace, GM
John Fox – Head Coach
Matt Nagy – Head Coach
Vic Fangio – Defensive Coordinator
Mark Helfrich – Offensive Coordinator
Their offenses are legion; terrible draft picks (
we do like the Cutler trade, but other than that, misery), languid leadership even while the team is getting blown out, and a general feeling that failure is OK and doesn’t require any aggressive actions to right the ship. Watching talent leave Chicago and thrive elsewhere (too many to name, but highlights are Benson and Jones) is also a punch in the gut. On top of this is a lack of innovation – about the last thing the Bears invented was the “T Formation”, just like in the fight song.
