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 )

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

That's two odd games to focus in on Artbest. Trubisky injured his shoulder early on against Minnesota and missed the Oakland game in London. That New Orleans game was his first back and Nagy in his genius had him throw him throw 54 times and only attempted 7 running plays even though he claimed he ...

Re: Spain

Well I never been to Spain but I kind of like the music. Saddest thing from Cutler on is we’ve never prioritized OL. Many other issues too over years but lot of duct tape and bubble gum in our approach. If Cutler would have had a top 10 OL, the Bears would have made the playoffs a lot more often th...

Re: GM Candidate: Rick Smith, former Texans GM

Hoge and Jahns did a good job selling the idea that Smith would be a good choice because he’ll have absolutely no help from above so he needs to know how to do it all. He’s got the most experience and best chance of creating competent stability. This would be the “high floor” option to me. Maybe th...

Re: Bears to interview Brian Flores

Re: Bears to interview Brian Flores

I'm still confused about him. Some say all the bad talk about him was a smear campaign, others say it's proof that his behavior was so bad even his ability to win wasn't enough to overcome it. I hope the Bears are able to figure out the truth during the interview process. He sounds like he was a bi...

Re: Great article in the Athletic

You and me both, and it sheds some light on what Trubisky likely meant when he talked about there being a "culture issue" in the building. And not to be too mushy about it, but it also kinda breaks my heart for the kid. I know exactly what you mean, 100%. Breaks my heart for the kid as we...

Re: GM Candidate: Rick Smith, former Texans GM

You have to look at what the Texans were before Smith was hired, and look at them after he was let go. He has had success: 12 seasons, only 4 of which were 'losing seasons' 4 playoff appearances 11 Pro Bowlers drafted etc We could do a lot worse than Rick Smith. I'm still on the Dodds train, but ye...

Re: GM Candidate: Eliot Wolf, Patriots scouting director

They hired pace instead of Chris Ballard, not Phil Emery. I don’t believe pace was a fan of cutler (either), but he didn’t demand the structural change Ballard did - ironically the structural change we see now. Also, Ballards Achilles heel thus far is the qb position - it’s his fatal flaw quote=The...
