BEARS ANNOUNCE NEW HEAD COACH/ GM The Chicago Bears have announced the hiring of RV as their new Head Coach and GM. RV is a virtual unknown on Tradition Sports, but it is not his first stint in the leagues here. He spent a short time in the now defunct VFL as the Buccaneer Head Coach in Madden 13, most notably drafting stud CB J.J. Smoke. We were able to sit down with RV after his press conference for a one on one interview. WCW: First off coach, welcome to Chicago. RV: Thank you very much, I'm excited to be here. WCW: Coach, taking over a 1-15 team, where do you start turning this thing around? RV: Well, I think it's more in attitude, and execution. You look at this team on paper, and you don't see a one win football team. There is a lot of talent here. A ton of it. But also, you don't go 1-15 because you're unlucky. There's also a reason you have a record like that. But I truly believe we can turn things around here...and fairly quickly. WCW: Is there a Quarterback controversy in Chicago? RV: I think it's a bit early to tell. Drew Brees isn't quite a spring chicken, so whether he decides to retire or not, that will have an impact. Otherwise, we have 4 QBs on roster and all seen game action last season, and that's generally not a good thing. I think most likely we'll have them duke it out in camp. WCW: You have the first overall pick in the draft. Do you have a strategy or a target in mind so far? RV: No, not at all. It's just way too early just yet to have any sort of indication of what we'll do. We have resignings, the combine, and free agency yet. So much can change between now and then. WCW: Have you been contacted by other teams about trading down from number one? RV: Yes, we have. WCW: Biggest strength of the Bears as they are currently? RV: I'd say...probably offensively, in general. Great line play. I think if we can get consistent quarterback play, we could have a really potent offense. There is weapons here. Great WRs led by Alshon. And I think Clante Tanelus has the talent to be a special player. WCW: Ok, and the biggest weakness? RV: I'd say the opposite, the defense, in general. I'm a bit worried about how these guys will fit to my scheme. Or else to change my scheme to fit them. Most of what I do predicates from the pressure on the QB by the defensive line, and I think that was probably their biggest struggle last season on defense, so that's something that needs to be addressed. Age is a bit of a concern also, I'd like to get a bit younger. WCW: Talk about the NFC North. RV: Well it's from the outside looking in, obviously, as I'm not familiar with anyone, but it looks like a very strong, competitive division. The Vikings have the best HB in the game, adding Tavon Austin and completey revamping the defense. The Packers have the best QB in the game. The Lions underachieved a bit, and have the best WR in the game. So it's kind of crazy having all these weapons in the division to face twice a year. But I really look forward to competing and trying to make the Bears a contender again. WCW: Thanks Coach, and good luck this offseason and upcoming year. RV: Thank you.
