Denver and Minnesota are better jobs. They have better rosters and also have large, passionate fan bases.The Marshall Plan wrote: ↑Thu Jan 13, 2022 9:37 am Now I’m being serious.
Even though I think the McCaskeys are an inbred group of taint tinklers, there’s no way in hell the Jags, Denver, Minnesota and Miami are ahead of us in terms of appeal.
Forget ownership. It’s a huge ass market with a rabid fan base and the probable expansion to Arlington Heights if the HC does a good job and is around for it.
Similar to the Cubs and Hawks Anybody associated with a winning Bears team would be crowned and have a statue of them up around the new stadium and eat for free the rest of his life.
I live in Denver and Mike Shanahan is treated like Ditka is in Chicago. You don’t think there would be a statue built for the guy that wins Minnesota a SuperBowl?
Next year is going to have to be a rebuild because of Pace’s mismanagement (and a rebuild that begins with no first round pick) and Justin Fields had flashes but didn’t look good. Whether that’s a product solely of Nagy’s incompetence or what remains to be seen. But he’s not an elite franchise QB yet.
Miami and Jacksonville don’t make sense since they also have incompetent ownership, don’t have great rosters, and there are more Bears fans in their home stadiums.
