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...

Re: General Manager/Head Coach Interview Discussion

I'm assuming the HC interviews so far are all by Zoom and they're going to winnow the list down to finalists for in-person ones. The GM should (better) be on board already for those. It's ridiculous to have cut out a GM for even the Zoom round but, hey, Chicago Bears. For an interesting read, The A...
