Bears | Open to Kyle Orton reunion

Sun, 03 Aug 2014 23:33:18 -0700

Chicago Bears general manager Phil Emery would accept QB Kyle Orton on his roster if Orton wanted to play again in 2014.

Fantasy Tip: Orton wouldn't challenge Jay Cutler for the starting job, but considering Jimmy Clausen and Jordan Palmer are the backups this would be a step up. Monitor the situation, as it is worth stashing Orton on your bench as a "handcuff" pick if he signs. Cutler occasionally gets hurt.

Bears | GM does not believe in drafting quarterbacks late

Sun, 04 May 2014 07:21:34 -0700

Chicago Bears GM Phil Emery said he does not believe in drafting quarterbacks late in the draft and trying to develop them. "I just did a little study. It's very interesting," Emery said "That developmental theory doesn't hold a whole lot of water. There's entire classes of quarterbacks, since '06, I went back and looked at from Jay's on -- when people say developmental quarterbacks, OK, so who has gotten developed? There isn't a single quarterback after the third round since 2006 that has been a long-term starter. So you're either developing thirds, and most of them have been wiped out of the league. So to get a quality quarterback, you've got to draft them high. That 2012 class is a blip on the radar that's unusual, highly unusual."

Bears | Front seven will be larger

Mon, 24 Feb 2014 00:08:02 -0800

The Chicago Bears plan to draft and recruit larger players to fit the defensive front seven scheme, according to general manager Phil Emery. The team will use a 4-3 scheme but also wants to evaluate defensive players in this year's draft. "My personal preference is bigger is always better as long as you're not sacrificing athleticism and speed," Emery said. "This is a fast game, but it's a very physically tough, impactful game and you need bigger bodies over time to win those matchups."
