According to stories I've seen, most Chicagoans hate the thing. ESPN 1000's John Jurkovic (a former Packer DL) says it looks like the ship from Close Encounters of the 3rd Kind dropped in on Soldier Field. Inside, the stadium is tons nicer for fans, but outside is a big glassy train wreck.
Of course, what matters is the same result: F you Jim Belushi, we Cheeseheads OWN your pathetic FIB arses.
(If you're keeping score at home, that's 3 teams losing in their new/renovated stadium's debut: Green Bay vs. Minnesota and Philly vs. Tampa in Week 1, and now Da Bears.)

I'd say it's a little of both. He wants to succeed on his own without Belichek. And I HOPEHOPEHOPE he does. I also agree with Whitebacon on Herm. The Chiefs GM job is about the best 2-14 team job you can find. High draft picks. Mucho cap space.
