    He left LSU 14 years ago, when he was still relatively young.

    Totally different situation 4 national championships later.

    Yeah, back when he thought he wouldn’t be a total joke in the NFL. If Nick Saban thought he had any chance to succeed in the NFL he would leave Tuscaloosa in a pile of dust. If anything, him having that much success at Bama would make a guy like him want to succeed at the next level even more. But he knows he can’t do it when he can’t pull players’ scholarships

    Matt Nagy.

    Since he took over play calling the Chiefs averaged 28.6 points a game, 280 yards passing, 133 yards rushing, and they went 4-1 over those games. The Chiefs run some spread concepts, which mixing that in can be perfect for Trubisky. Nagy has played the position, coached the position, and apparently thinks highly of Mitch. There aren't too many reasons, imo, why he shouldn't be #1 on the list.

    The last thing you want is to hire a defensive coach, and then have a young offensive coordinator leave like Gase.

    That makes a lot of sense. The last 3-4 games, they got Hunt a lot more touches and it made a difference.

    That said, if they go that way, do they maybe look at trading Howard for additional picks? He doesn't fit an offense that wants to use the lead back in the passing game. Most of the league's top offenses are getting 50+ catches from their top back and Howard had 23.

    I know Mike Wilbon is a joke and has been for a while, but for some reason ESPN 1000 calls him up because he lived in Chicago 30 years ago and he's some Chicago sports expert.

    Wilbon ranted about how Mitch isn't athletic at all and he gets chased down by defensive linemen all the time. Well, we live in an era where defensive linemen run like 4.5 40's. No, Mitch isn't Russel Wilson but you can easily tell he has great mobility for a QB. He had a 46 yard run this year. He's had more rushing yards as a QB in 12 games than Cutler ever had in a single season and Cutler was a pretty good athlete. Wilbon sucks.

    Wilbon is a clown. Why anyone listens to what he thinks about Chicago sports is beyond me.

    This all works for me.

    I'm pretty sure I watched nearly every Bears game this season and it seems like they used Howard so differently every game. Such piss poor offensive management.

    Cohen especially, like he was just absent for 3-4 game stretches it seemed.

    Shurmur interviewed today. He was my first choice before Prope’s Nagy post.

    I think McDaniels makes the most sense, provided he can convince Alex Guerrero to join up with the Bears and start a MT10 training center.

    Shurmur is another guy I really like. I've cooled on DeFilippo.

    I like our defense. It would be nice to keep Fangio and get someone that can groom Tru.

    So I guess one question to Nagy during the interview is why you have an 18 point lead and your league leading rusher only ends up with 11 carries.

    Of course dude blows that when I'm high on him. Of fucking course. Might as well have Rex play QB forever.

    This probably moves Shurmur or DeFilippo as the new fan favorite now.

    Or maybe we should hope Reid was influencing the play calling. Not giving the ball to Hunt with a huge lead seems like a Andy Reid move.

    If they ask him and he handles the question right, then it's not a killer if they think he's the right guy.

    Only question is what position does he play? If it's just QB, that's limiting what he can do.

    Minimum 8peat wth Rex as Qb, coach, QB coach, and MLBer aka the Urlocker

    If they really like Nagy they can offer him the job today.

    Any chance of that? Or do you think they give some a second round?

    Well, if Phillips and McCaskey are in these interviews, there's really no reason to do a second interview. More likely the guy calls Pace to ask questions he didn't want to ask in front of the others.

    Hard to believe Mitch can't be Alex Smith given the right weapons.

    You'd hope Smith is Mitch's floor. I wanted Shurmur, but Nagy should be OK.

    I'll be interested in seeing if he can keep Fangio, or at the very least Donatell on the defensive staff.

    Bears told the Bengals to get fleeced when they asked to talk to Fangio. I think Fangio's contract ends tomorrow or next Tuesday, so maybe they'll lock him up today.

    It's tomorrow. Rumors have the Packers being very interested in hiring him.

    I guess Nagy wants to keep Fangio but also has Pettine in mind.

    Take this for what it's worth:

    @1_ChiefsKingdom
    Bombshell! Nagy to Bears was a done deal before Chiefs playoff game. Reid took back play scheming and calling to allow Nagy time to prep for his interview. Nagy helped script first 15 plays with Reid, who then took over play calling.
  35. BeviBall

    BeviBall No wallet. No crack. Not me.

    I'd believe that. Reid is who killed Hunt and it happened again in the playoff game. Move seems fine but it's the Bears and we'll probably be in this same sort of thread 2-3 years from now regardless of who they signed.

    Mike Shula was fired today along with Ken Dorsey.

    Speaking of shitty pro-quarterbacks, Ken Dorsey was shitty.

    And he cost me a 3peat fantasy football championship by throwing a damn pick-6 against the eagles.

    Why did you start Ken Dorsey in a fantasy football championship?

    I didn't. Opponent had Eagles Defense. I was up by 7 or 8 (give or take) heading into MNF (or maybe SNF) dude had eagles D and Ken through the shittiest pass ever and :anal:

    I lost the matchup which prevented me from the making the playoffs, in which I would have destroyed everyone. But I ran into some shitty scheduling early in the season and lost 4 or 5 straight while scoring 2nd or 3rd most points each week.

    Destroyed the losers bracket and got nothing out of it, except anger. Fuck Ken Dorsey.

    - Harry Hiestand is your OL coach, which is being raved about by many.

    - There's a rumor around about Fangio being done, and an announcement coming. The phrase "being done" is really not clear if a deal has been agreed upon, or that he is not coming back.

    - There's also an odd rumor that former Oregon HC Mark Helfrich is Nagy's first choice to be OC, with Brad Childress being his second choice.
