The Chicago Bears have fired Jerry Angelo, ending his tenure as general manager after eleven seasons.
Lovie Smith will return, but is evaluating his coaching staff. Special teams coach Dave Toub is apparently on the interview list for the Dolphins head coaching job, and of course nobody expects Mike Martz to return as offensive coordinator.
UPDATE (1:06 PM CT): Well, that didn't take long. Dan Pompei of The Chicago Tribune is reporting Mike Martz has resigned as offensive coordinator over philosophical differences.

Possibly the closest Super Bowl matchup in history also poses the question: how much does it mean when certain aspects of an NFL team improve dramatically in the second half of the season?
