    I know, I read the article.

    During @JmackVashShow on ChicagolandSportsRadio, Matt Forte says he has faith in Phil Emery in #Bears coach search.
    Forte jumped on the radio show held by former Bears Jason McKie and Nathan Vasher and visited with his friends. He said the personal interaction Emery has from time to time makes a difference in his world.

    “I’ve got a lot of faith in Phil and that’s not because he’s the first one that came in and signed me to a contract and all that stuff,” Forte said. “Just look at what he’s done so far with the signings that we have, the draft we had. He had a lot better draft than we’ve had in past years with players that come in and contribute early. And I’ve seen him after the games and stuff, he’ll come into the room and talk to me about how the game went and some big plays that were made and all that stuff. I’ve never had that happen in past years. It kind of says something when the GM comes in and kind of talks football with you after a game.”

    Was about to post this. IMO, Emery went a long way in the locker room by immediately extending Briggs a year and adding some money while also extending Forte, let alone the acquisition of Marshall. I think there's probably some hurt feelings still over the canning of Lovie but the players also know Phil's trying to win, which has to be respected.

    At least someone gives a **** about the direction of our team.

    It seems like the offense for the most part doesn't really care that Lovie got canned.

    Its no secret Lovie was a defensive coach but I think it showed it more on when he got fired. The defensive guys (now and ex Bear) were saying it was a horrible move and Lovie should still be here. While the offensive guys like Forte and Cutler say they stand by Emery and they think he will do the best for this organization. Really shows who Lovie probably spent more time with to get to know and build a relationship with

    Be interested to see if Phil Emery talks in general and specific terms about how #Bears scouting system has changed
    Emery didn’t completely overhaul the way things were done scouting for the draft after he was hired last year because it was late in the process for the college draft. You couldn’t have scouts going back and re-working hundreds of reports with the combine and draft meetings fast approaching. But Emery has implemented changes since and the word from the Senior Bowl in Mobile, Ala., was the reports are even more detailed than before. That’s not that Jerry Angelo’s system wasn’t detailed, but Emery’s program raises it a notch. It would be nice to learn what new ground he is asking scouts to cover from A to Z on players.

    Absolutely. While I can understand the frustration of a couple of our draft picks, I'm willing to see out another draft or two..or three from Phil. The jury is still out for our picks, and it's far too early to concretely judge Emery's first draft class.

    Theres a lot that we dont know where hes going with this team tbh. He came in with a coach who wasn't his and a system that wasn't his either. Hell people might love this draft in a couple of years if Shea develops or Hardin and Alshon stay healthy people are going to put their foot in their mouth. You cant judge a draft after 1 year.

    Agreed. Frankly, I like the draft. Shea has a motor, so if he bulks up a bit, I'm sure he'll be just fine. Alshon was a great, great pick IMO, and Rodriguez shows a bit of promise. Obviously with Harden who knows what the hell will happen, but I was just making the point that people shouldn't be turned off by Emery's first draft because it takes three years in my opinion to form a solid opinion about draft results. Ask Corey Woottonn
