  • Emery takes solid approach with meticulous search

    Emery takes solid approach with meticulous search
    A strong possibility exists that Bears general manager Phil Emery has learned more in the last week than any other NFL executive trolling for a head coach. Well then, shame on him. How dare he work so hard to educate himself. Those who think too...

     Trestman has answers for what ails Bears
