General manager Jerry Angelo will meet with media this morning at 11 at Halas Hall to recap the season.
We'll see what he has to say about the coaching situation and Lovie Smith's staff. Smith has control of his coaching staff and Angelo, ultimately, oversees the 53-man roster. Angelo wanted Rod Marinelli as the defensive coordinator in 2004 when Smith was hired as he had a strong relationship with him from his days in Tampa Bay as well. We'll see what he is willing to share on the subject.
Angelo will also surely be asked about the performance of the defense that he invested so highly in. Only the Baltimore Ravens dedicated more salary-cap space to their defense. The Ravens finished ranked second in the league. The Bears were 21st and had the 30th-ranked passing defense.
More after Angelo talks.
