What a year it was for the Chicago Bears...& I don't mean that in a good way by any stretch of imagination. The team came of a 5-11 season in 2014, their first double-digit loss season since producing the exact same record just 10 years prior. & as a result, changes had to be made, & it started in the front office. General manager Phil Emery...gone. Director of pro personnel Kevin Turks...gone. & of course head coach Marc Trestman...gone as well, along with offensive coordinator Aaron Kromer. Quarterbacks coach Matt Canavaugh's contract was not retained by the organization as well. Roster changes include the departures of wide receiver Brandon Marshall, cornerback Charles Tillman (who missed the majority of 2014 due to injury), safety Chris Conte, defensive tackle Stephen Paea, safety Anthony Walters, & center Roberto Garza...just to name a few. New head coach John Foz, who had taken his two previous coached teams the Broncos & Panthers to Super Bowls, is expected to bring a fresh new attitude. & what about quarterback Jay Cutler? The guy was almost traded to the Tennessee Titans & still possess a lof of money in his current deal. What will become of the Bears going forward in 2015?? Tune in to a new episode of The Rocket Sports Breakdown Thursday May 21st @ 6:30pm to find out. For 30 minutes, Rocket will discuss the Bears & their 2015 offseason & more.

What is happening in your neck of the woods?
Smart Quiz Question/Name one of the longest rivers in the United States.
He just coached the Chicago Bulls to a very impressive Game 1 win in Cleveland. He finished off the Milwaukee Bucks in Game 6 of the first round with a 54-point victory. He has had a surprising level of success the past two seasons despite being without Derrick Rose. He is widely regarded as one of the best tacticians in basketball.
Yet Tom Thibodeau appears to be on the way out in Chicago.
Even if he wins a championship.
How can this be? Is there any precedent?
To answer to second question first ... you might just remember that Phil Jackson left the Bulls -- and they broke up their dynasty -- in 1998 after winning the NBA title for the sixth time in eight years. At that time, the disconnect between the head coach and the front office was so immense, there was no turning back the dynamiting of one of the greatest teams ever. It made no sense then, and it still makes no sense today ... unless you compare it to a divorce.
And that is how we answer the first question posed above, in this podcast with WGN Radio in Chicago.
