What they discovered was that due to what insiders are calling an "undiscovered clerical error," Fox's contract was never properly executed and therefore he hadn't actually been hired to coach the team in 2015. Fox's employment was immediately nullified.
The hoards of Bears fans eagerly awaiting the eventual debut of first-round draft pick Mitch Trubisky will be in for a huge disappointment. Reports from those close to the organization indicate the young QB is becoming "much, much worse at football" just by being in the presence of struggling starter Mike Glennon.
Interim Bears starting quarterback, Mike Glennon got in a heated argument this week with the owner of Chen's Chinese Restaurant in downtown Chicago. It had nothing to do with the Kung Pow Chicken or quality of service, but rather the zodiac paper place mats on the dining room tables.
"Once I lock eyes with a receiver, it's on. That's where I'm going with the ball," said Glennon. "In fact, I'm looking at Kevin White right now. I have been for the last 35 minutes."
Those who've known Bears GM Ryan Pace since his youth are not surprised about the blockbuster trade he pulled off Thursday night, parting with three draft picks just to move up one first-round spot to choose North Carolina QB Mitch Trubisky.
