Former Bears LB Urlacher talks about dislike for former GM Emery
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Former Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher has not hid his dislike for former Bears general manager Phil Emery. Urlacher did not appreciate how Emery handled his contract negotiation following the 2012 season.

While Urlacher has dropped hints to varying degrees about the failed negotiations, he finally opened up Friday about the topic in an interview on WSCR-AM.

"I just didn’t get along -- I didn’t like the way he handled my situation or other situations around there with players," Urlacher said of Emery, who was fired in December. "I didn’t like the way he acted sometimes. I just didn’t feel comfortable being in the building when he was around.

"I’m a huge fan of the McCaskeys. I’ve always said that, never quit saying that. I’m going to keep saying it. But there was one guy that I had a problem with, and he happened to be the guy that was everyone’s boss."

Urlacher, who spent his entire 13-year career with the Bears, went on to further explain how he hoped the contract negotiations went down and where he feels Emery came up short.

"If he came to me and said, ‘Hey man, look, we don’t think you’re the same.’ Which, I wasn’t the same player. After my knee got hurt, I was a little bit slower and older. I agree. But I still wanted to play. I feel like I could have still played. With another year of rehab on my knee, I probably could have played one or two more years," he said, per the Chicago Tribune.

"If he had said, ‘Hey man, you’re not the same player. You know that. We know that. But we still want you here. You’re a good leader. Blah, blah, blah. You’re a team guy, this, that. But we can’t pay you more than this. But we want you here. Can you do it?’

"Hell yeah, I can do it. If you handle it like that, 100 percent I can do it, you know? But the way it was handled -- 'This is the offer, take it over leave it. You have til tonight to decide. If you don’t want it, we’ll get somebody else. And then we’re going to tweet it out right when you say no.' It’s over with now. I’m happy I’m retired."

Bears' Bennett: Trestman will be 'excellent coordinator' for Ravens
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Marc Trestman lasted only two seasons as the Bears coach before losing his job. Bears tight end Martellus Bennett said on NFL Network on Friday that Trestman's demise in Chicago was plagued by his inability to control a locker room full of personalities.

"Trestman, I think, first off, the issue that he had, probably, was managing us all, all the different personalities," Bennett said. "There's a lot of big personalities (in the locker room). And I think, for a first-time head coach in the NFL, dealing with all the personalities that you have, I think that's hard when you got guys like me, you know, (Brandon) Marshall ... Lance Briggs on defense, (Charles) Tillman.

"There's so many guys with such outgoing personalities that managing those guys and bringing them all together is what a leader needs to do, you know? And that's one of the toughest things."

Although Trestman was fired in late December, he wasn't out of work for long, landing the job as the Ravens offensive coordinator after Gary Kubiak left to become the Broncos coach. Bennett believes Trestman will have success in his new role.

"Calling plays, he was excellent," Bennett said. "I think he's going to be an excellent coordinator for the Ravens.  Strategically, he was great. But on the field, guys just weren't executing.

"A lot of it comes back to the player preparation. If you're not preparing to a high level, then the coaches can only do so much; the game's not played on paper, it's played on grass. On paper, we look great. On grass, we looked bad."
