As Bears fans find their team three games behind the Packers and Lions in the NFC North, frustration with the club's architect is building. Much of the blame for the Bears' struggles is being directed toward GM Jerry Angelo nine months after the team made a surprising run to the NFC championship game. The high-profile free-agent additions Angelo was counting on to upgrade positions of need — WR Roy Williams and FS Brandon Meriweather — have been huge disappointments. There are significant deficiencies in the supporting cast Angelo has built for QB Jay Cutler, who continues to take a beating behind a porous offensive line after being sacked a league-high 52 times last season. Fans questioning Angelo have company from sources around the league. Angelo, in his 11th season as the Bears' general manager, does not acknowledge mistakes or hold himself accountable for the team's weaknesses when given an opportunity to do so publicly, and it isn't enhancing his declining credibility.
