So what do I hear? I heard a surprising number of veterans, including SURPRISING ones like Frank Gore, Kenny Stills, and especially Cameron Wake, all rose up and disavowed Gase privately. Wake and Stills directly to Steve Ross. Kenyan Drake wanted a trade if Gase remained.

I am so happy we dodged the Gace bullet. it was worth the extra year of Fox just to be where we are now, and not where Miami is. He will wind up as someone's wide receivers coach, and that's exactly where he belongs.

He lost that locker room a year ago when he brought in Cutler instead of letting Matt Moore play after Tannehill went down.

Gase road Peyton's coat tails in Denver, what he really did in Chicago was questionable What, Jay had a decent year? Just never got the love there. Watching some of his press conferences, guy just didn't have it.

Glad to see someone say this. I never understood exactly what Gase "did" with Cutler that was so magnificent. Jay threw lots of short/quick passes to big receivers. IIRC, they were still 6-10.

To be fair, 6-10 was kind of refreshing back then.

Yeah. Actually I heard both Miami and Denver want to interview him. If by some miracle the Bears win the SB this year, I could see where he would leave. But short of that, I think Vic is here next year.

Truthfully, Pace needs to hand Fangio a blank contract and tell him to fill in the amount.

I actually don’t think he would make a very good HC. Too damn honest. Vic is a coordinator to the bone.

Absolutely. Just offer to make Fangio the highest paid coordinator in the history of the game on either side of the ball. It has to be easier work and especially when its relative to the money. If he wants an HC job I honestly hope he gets it. He's earned the right to get what he wants. If he leaves start calling Mike Nolan or I'm sure Fangio has a second in command he'd recommend (which I'd prefer).

It's clear that this relationship, in its current form, is working. Nagy is concentrating on the offense and Mitch, and has left the entire defensive side of the ball to Vic. Nagy would need to bring in someone with that kind of experience running a defense. Give them the reigns, and trust that they will be able to manage that side without a lot of direction.
