Re: General Manager/Head Coach Interview Discussion

I'm not concerned. The delays basically indicate they're interviewing guys who aren't losing in the Wild Card round or regular season. AKA, winners.

By the end of next week we'll know our guy. Just relax, peeps.

Re: Ex Girlfriend Stories

This has the almost 100% likelihood of becoming a sexist wormhole, so let's not.

Re: Witfong: Analyzing which Bears are responsible for sacks

Whitehair's issues have been no commitment to a position. He was a very good guard who was forced to play center, became an above-average center, then was shuffled back to guard. Daniels is still kind of green, but is also dealing with a return from injury. I think Daniels still has some promise, an...

Re: General Manager/Head Coach Interview Discussion



Clearly the Bears aren't quite willing to make that kind of deal.

Re: Update: Ed Dodds withdraws from Bears GM consideration

Went badly how? is a very important question. If Dodds did poorly, oh well. If Dodds thought the McCaskeys were a bunch of fuckups and he wants no part of it...that's a whole different kettle of rotting fish. Apparently just a bad interview. This isn't his first flop being interviewed around the le...

Re: Bears to interview Colts DC Matt Eberflus

https://twitter.com/TomPelissero/status/1483845154528190465 I predicted early in the process it would be Ed Dodds and Matt Eberflus. Still feel strongly about it, but Marack O'Bama might be a serious contender as well (h/t @UOK ) I'd be cool with Dodds/Eberflus. Feels like an Angelo/Lovie setup, wh...

Re: Chicago sports legend Les Grobstein passes away

McNeil's burned so many bridges that I don't trust anything he's saying these days. Guy has fallen off the wagon so many times.

Re: General Manager/Head Coach Interview Discussion

Caldwell seems like one of those coaches I'd love to play for. Guy is charming, down to earth, and seems like a Lovie-esque locker room dad. I don't know if that wins you football games, but it's food for thought.

Re: Chicago Bears fire HC Matt Nagy & GM Ryan Pace

Nagy clearly was in over his head and wasn't ready to run the show. I think in a few years he'll get another bite at the apple in the NFL and do an OK job. NCAA ranks may be another good spot for him. Could be a hell of a college coach.

Re: So if you were the Bears next GM..

In the draft, BPA. Drafting for need is almost always a bad gamble. In FA, you look for corners/safeties and LB help. Prioritize guys with good health who are a scheme fit. Don't take fliers on guys who are coming off of major injuries.

Re: General Manager/Head Coach Interview Discussion

All are done remotely, as far as I'm aware. Zoom has expedited this process tremendously. I think it's a good thing. Once people start flying into Chicago, that's when you're gonna have some finalists. I think they have a GM by Friday. Hopefully he'll be in on narrowing the list of HC candidates. I...
