The lastest rumblings from the Monsters of the Midway

First, it appears virtually certain that John Fox will be the next coach of the Chicago Bears.

Secondly, Dennis Allen will probably be the Bears' defensive coordinator, if the above report is true. But coaches all over the NFL desperately want the job.

Third, reports that Brandon Marshall is gone are apparently untrue. Which, despite his continuing maladaptive behavior (probably springing from his Borderline Personality Disorder- a psychiatric illness which, unlike nearly all who have it, Marshall has courageously owned) is a good thing. As good as the Bears' receiving corps has become otherwise, Marshall would not easily be replaced.

Still no definitive word on Jay Cutler, but my guess is that he stays at least one more season. But my guess is also that 2015 will be his last chance, at least in Chicago.

I wonder whether the Bears will draft a quarterback this time around, and maybe even trade up to do it.
