Re: Nagy Hot Seat

Not that either guy was seriously in the conversation. But Lincoln Riley jumped from Univ. of Oklahoma to USC and Brian Kelley from Notre Dame to LSU (bit of a shocker). The Bears are still hot on Pat Fitzgerald but he swears he won't leave Northwestern. Ryan Day's name has been in the press this we...

Ditka is and was an enormous tool.
Yeah, but McDaniels is also a sneaky/shady dude.
He is a great offensive mind. Look at how he's developed Mac Jones. But after the way he shafted Indy, I wouldn't want to see that type of guy coaching the Bears.

Re: Week 13 // Chicago Bears (4-7) vs. Arizona Cardinals (9-2)

The Bears get schooled in how to use a QB with JF's talents as Murray takes them apart and Cards D does its job:

Re: Matt Nagy deserves a little credit

Nagy's anemic offensives almost make you forget how poorly disciplined and prepared this team has been for most of his tenure. If he was going to grow into the job he would have done it by now. He is simply not head coach material. He will probably find a role as an offensive assistant somewhere th...

Re: Kellen Moore

Been a big fan of his since his QB days at Boise State. He's got a winner's mentality. Dallas does have a diversified offense under him but look at his talent: OL, QB, WRs, Zeke (7th in the NFL in rushing). Whomever hires him as Head Coach will obviously be a bad team lacking weapons. I think he can...

Re: Jeff Bezos & The Bears?

Short of him blowing the McCaskeys out of the water with a truly obscene offer, they ain't selling anytime in the next few years. Just as long as he followed the Paul Allen-Mark Cuban model of ownership but uberwealthy guys, not the Daniel Snyder model.

Re: Bears Most Attractive Job?

The Bears have to be considered an attractive job. 3rd biggest city, fanatical fans, possible new stadium in the works to energize people. Dump Pace first, get rid of Ted (put him in charge of a stadium project and hire a football operations guy), and it gets even better.

Curley Culp RIP

One of my all time faves, an all-time great at defensive tackle. Played for the Chiefs and was dominant in SB IV when he dominated the Viqueens center and had to be doubled much of the time.

Re: Matt Nagy deserves a little credit

I give Nagy credit for not resigning but that's little enough credit, no one wants to lose their job. Dalton or Fields or Foles or Trubisky, Nagy offenses can not deliver the points needed to win consistently. That's the bottom line, that and ownership has allowed this to continue for 4 years.

Re: Has anyone changed their mind on Daboll?

The Bears need a true leader who can run everything. He can hire the OC and DC to concentrate on those aspects. Maybe have a team who avoids stupid penalties, knows what to do every down, manages timeouts correctly, etc.

It is depressing, which is the norm for the Bears. The only good thing is that for the first time in a long while, they’re not going into an offseason looking to draft a decent QB.

$790M to be paid by the NFL. I wonder how much, if any, owners besides Kroenke will be on the hook for. They did approve the move so I'll assume each will pay something.

Re: Hub Arkush: George McCaskey instructed team to start Fields

After JF was drafted, Pace/Nagy should have been directed to open up competition in training camp if the owner wanted to put the best team on the field. This coming out now just demonstrates even more what a true chickenshit organization the Bears have become.

Re: Rumor: Nagy to be Fired after Thanksgiving

Regardless of Nagy being fired now or after the season, ownership and Phillips have allowed a bad situation to totally devolve into a clown show. Gives potential GM and coaching candidates pause for working for such an organization. But someone will, they'll just ask for 5 year contracts.

Regardless of Nagy's thoughts on the best QB to run his offense, it just makes sense to hold out Fields and give him the extra days to heal. Which of course, means he'll be the starter.
