And why can't they do research with Pace still in place?

I was just about to mention this.  That's like saying I can't look at another or read up on a new car until I sale my old one.

They most certainly can and probably are...but it just makes for an awkward situation don't you think?

If they start to put out feelers that they're interested in certain guys as Pace's replacement I'm sure word will circle back to Pace at some point before the end of the season..and that just seems like bad taste IMO.

I'm hoping that the reaaon they haven't fired him yet is because they are looking to make an even bigger change at the President position aka Ted Phillips' position. 

There's some buzz out there already that George is contemplating a major shakeup by having Ted reassigned to a another role in the organization that is more focused on the business side vs football ops.  If so then that is the change that may finally spark things to head in the right direction.

I really hope that's the case. Ever since Phillips has took over this team has only had 6 playoff appearances in over 25 years. That is absolutely horrid.

6 playoff appearances in 25 years is brutal. Who was the guy before Ted Phillips?

I believe it was Michael McCaskey. Say what you want about the guy but at least they won a Superbowl under his leadership

Pretty sure that was all Finks and Vainisi.

This is the path that the organization must go down.  If you have to hire a consultant to hire a GM than its time to move Ted out of his role.  If not you’ll just be repeating history.

Finks and Vainisi were GM's no? I'm talking about team president's before Phillips.

Yeah but Michael McCaskey, if anything, was a cancer.

Agreed.  There is some hope that George is getting a little more comfortable in his role since taking over as team Chairman in 2010.

He apparently leaned on Phillips a lot for the hiring of both Emery & Pace and neither were able to figure out the QB spot.

Maybe it's time George takes more charge and puts things in someone else's hands who has more experience in NFL front office management & player procurement.

Ya most of us long term fans know his reputation was bad and that he was primarily responsible for the letting go of Ditka.

I was just pointing out that ever since he stepped down as team president and hired Phillips the team has been worse off.  Not that he was a great President himself or anything.

Just a cluster **** of an organization. LOL
