Also for as clueless as this ownership may be I find it hard to believe they don't want to achieve great things and be a perennial winning franchise

They've got enough wealth to last many generations and regardless of how bad their record is in any given season the team will never be hurting from a financial standpoint 

Two vastly different issues and motives IMHO.

Of course they want the franchise to achieve great things.  That would only enhance the value of their inheritance and their prestige.  I believe the problem is they simply don't know how.  Unlike GSH they've always lacked an effective plan for doing it.

Yes they have an abundance of wealth but that's side issue.  They also have other shareholders who own 20% of the team and those guys are top Chicago business execs so ROI has to come into play somewhere.  It's not the family hobby business.

Again, and IMHO only.  The McCaskey's aren't complete fools or miserably cheap and incompetent any longer but they are not 21st century NFL Football savvy either.  They are not the ones who should be running that team but for whatever reason or set of reasons they can't see it that way so the cycle remains unchanged. They're in a rut.

I also wonder if he thought there was going to be a bigger free agency market given the cap situation.  It seems like alot of people thought teams were going to release vets left and right and that didn't happen at all.

The only team that released a really good player because of cap mismanagement was probably the Bears

Not the only team. Seahawks and Jarran Reed? Cardinals and Patrick Peterson? Titans and Malcolm Butler? Chiefs Eric Fisher and Mitchell Schwartz?

True. But I'd say the Bears losing Fuller was probably the most egregious.

Fisher and Schwartz haven't even been signed by anyone. They were cut because they weren't good enough.

Fisher and Schwartz were cut because they are injured and that’s the reason they haven’t been signed yet. They are plenty good enough if healthy.

There was a rumor a while back that the Bears had talked with Fisher's people. Let's hope it's true.
