As General Manager of the Bears, Jerry Angelo’s job is to make sure he assembles a great deal of talent in Chicago. He apparently doesn’t think he’s done that job very well.
Angelo said the Bears won the NFC North because they’re a resilient team and a tough team, but not because they’re a particularly talented team.
“This team really came together as a team,” Angelo said. “I don’t see this as a team of great talent, but I see this as a team that played well together and really responded to the adversity that every team goes through.”
Angelo said this year’s Bears don’t have nearly as many star players as the last Bears team to get to the Super Bowl.
“In ’06 I think we had nine Pro Bowlers,” Angelo said. “I think we have four this year.”
Instead, Angelo says the Bears are a good team because they’re a team full of high-character guys who play the game the right way.
“If you don’t have a good locker room you can’t have a good team,” Angelo said.
