McCaskey says he's willing to be patient with Pace
http://www.dailyherald.com/article/20170104/sports/170109569/
COMPLETE
Bears chairman George McCaskey admits he's impatient, so his satisfaction with the 9-23 record that general manager Ryan Pace has presided over is surprising.

"I'm pleased with the job he's done," said McCaskey, who hired Pace on Jan. 8, 2015, to rebuild the 5-11 team left by GM Phil Emery and coach Marc Trestman. "He talked from the beginning about how this was going to take time, about how we needed to be patient. I told him, 'I'm not a patient person,' but I promised him that I would be patient."

The cohesive team McCaskey sees takes precedence over this year's 3-13 record.

"With all the adversity that we've had, I like the steady hand that (Pace and coach John Fox) have had on the team," McCaskey said. "These guys fought for each other all season. They never pointed fingers, and I think that's a credit to the type of player that we have. It's also a credit to John and his coaching staff for keeping them together."

McCaskey hopes a team that suffered numerous injuries can bounce back in 2017, even though more growing pains are expected from one of the NFL's youngest rosters.

"The thing I like about Ryan and John is how well they work together," McCaskey said, "how they have stuck to the plan, how they have weathered adversity and kept this team together."

McCaskey was asked about midseason rumors that the organization considered bringing in a consultant, above Pace, to straighten out a franchise that has lost 34 games in three years.

"There is absolutely no truth to it whatsoever," he said. "We think we have the right structure. We think we have the right people."

When Pace was hired, it was partly as a response to George's mother, Bears matriarch Virginia McCaskey, who was angry after the 5-11 finish in 2014.

So McCaskey was asked how his mother, who turns 94 on Thursday, felt about this year's team.

"She has outlived her dad (Bears founder George Halas), her mom, her only sibling, her husband and a son," George McCaskey said. "She's had her share of heartache, but she is a remarkably resilient person. I tell people that she's tougher than her dad was, and those who know her don't disagree.

"This is hard for her. Every loss is painful. But she supports what we're doing. She's on board. Like every Bears fan, she wants more wins. And we intend to get them for her."

Funny how blind the McCaskeys and the likes of their jock sniffers are,, in how the McCaskey feel the need to be patient   with their new powers that are.

 YUP   It's all on the NEW Gm, Pace and Fox ,.....Sure it is

Hey Georgy  or maybe  one of their jock sniffers  here can answer a question regarding patience

  then why  the constant going back to the failed square peg in a round hole experiment at the QB position  ,.. a QB   you all signed off on ,...  who had already gone through so many OCs   that failed . 

 Why have yas been so patient with Cutler ?   giving him his pay day and all  

So I guess with Georgy having to be patient with Pace and all ,.. Bears fans will more than likely be put through another season or two or three or four even ( as i believe he's signed through 2020 ,..  with no monetary ,. clauses  just yet)  of  one failure Jay Cutler
 

AND TO THIS  I say  Screw  you  and your family  as well as your jock sniffers ,.... Georgy

   MAYBE the  Ricketts and Wirtz Families can buy out the McCantski's,...... YES ????

A successful franchise has smart people running the team. A franchise that has failed for years and years has morons running the team. The Bears do not have smart people running this team. The McCaskeys are to Ted Phillips what Jerry Reinsdorf is to Kenny Williams, to damn loyal, that will bite you in the ass. I do wonder how much of what Pace has done in free agency and the draft his first two years has been things he's wanted to do, or things The McCaskeys have wanted him to do. If you are an owner of a sports franchise that does not let your GM do their job, that's a disaster in the making. This is a big offseason for this franchise.

I think that the only bitch I have about the McCaskeys would be their meddling in who will be the head coach. I think they have continued to hog tie their GMs and force them into coaches that have less chance of embarrassing them than anything. Personally I think most of that comes from Virginia, it is pretty well known that she is about as proper as they come. She fears a scandal being tied to her Bears more than a mutiny from the fans. 

I truly hope that Fox will get the ship righted and the Bears fighting for a championship. I would obviously be thrilled if he finally wins one, but even if he only gets us close, the McCaskeys have got to let Pace pick the coach he believes in. A coach he feels can lead the team as he has built it. One that he can work closely with. 

 

Train like you are 2nd, but play like you are 1st.
