REPORT: Chicago Bears Have Eyes For Chris Ballard As New GM

Ted Phillips, really for the first time in 16 years is feeling the heat as team president of the Chicago Bears.  His latest failure is the hiring of current GM Phil Emery, who has taken the franchise in three years from contender to NFL laughing stock.
