Fri, 19 Nov 2010 07:41:02 -0800

Chicago Bears general manager Jerry Angelo said head coach Lovie Smith is a great leader for the team, and believes the criticism he has received is unfair, according to Dan Pompei, of the Chicago Tribune.

You can say what you want to say, I've read everything that you've said. Most of it to me is unfair because the guy has really done an outstanding job of keeping the team together ... You can't minimize that and he doesn't get enough credit for that."

It's a big decision, and we want to do a thorough job," Angelo said.

Bears | Angelo taking Benson's arrest seriously

Sun, 08 Jun 2008 15:41:58 -0700

Bob LeGere, of the Daily Herald, reports Chicago Bears general manager Jerry Angelo said the team will take RB Cedric Benson's recent arrest for DUI seriously. Angelo added, "Disappointment is too much an often-used word when we're talking about Cedric." According to police in Austin, Texas, Benson was pulled over Saturday, June 7, for running a red light, and he refused to take a Breathalyzer or provide blood samples. He was arrested after he failed a field sobriety test. Angelo said he was disappointed Benson put himself in a similar situation so soon after getting arrested 35 days ago and being charged with boating while intoxicated and resisting arrest. Angelo added, "It doesn't weigh well. It's unfortunate and we will deal with it once we know everything. I am very surprised that he put himself in this situation after our last visit."

Bears | Forte improves RB position according to Angelo

Sun, 27 Apr 2008 15:13:39 -0700

Vaughn McClure, of The Chicago Tribune, reports Chicago Bears general manager Jerry Angelo implied that he is not satisfied with Bears RB Cedric Benson by selecting RB Matt Forte in the second round. "What Forte gives us is a big back, a three-down back," Angelo said. "He has enough speed to get to the outside. And he has the ability to make people miss at the second level. And those were two areas where we never really could find any consistency, which made us an easy team to defend." This could provide an opening for Forte.
