    The media oogling over Ballard is annoying, but his discipline would have been far, far superior to post Emery Bears. Had we just fired Ballard, I'm sure our draft capital and salary cap would be in a different place. While hilarious they lost to the Jags, and Wentz being terrible, they've had a difficult decision with QB. He builds the team rapidly for Luck, then luck retires right before the season. While the Bears get Foles or Dalton, they were able to get Philip Rivers. They should have last year probably targeted Mac Jones, but with a fully formed team already, I get why they chose this route. Getting Yo-Yo'd by luck for years led to his lack of QB, we'll see what they do now.

    Maybe not, but the case for it being possible is it being unknown what contract he's under, they are in transition, and have a good succession plan in Dennis Allen. There is enough respect they may work it out if there is desire. They cannot go through this without knowing.

    While he may keep his job next few days, I think we'll see him gone with the GM search.

    I do think Bears need to understand what is possible in getting Sean Payton first and foremost, including letting him choose GM.

    It is going to be interesting. I think George's confidence is shot now. The Bears were so close to so many franchise altering moments. Choosing Arians in 2013 instead of Trestman. Ballard instead of Pace. Mahomes, etc. Some of these were trying to branch out instead of the obvious choice. Some it was taking the obvious choice (Fox) and it still not working out. I still find myself thinking about that Kevin Clark article. I obviously like Mike Tomlin a lot. I like Kevin Colbert a lot. I like Omar Khan. But in Pittsburgh, in places like Ohio State, in Green Bay, these aren't places where if one cog fails the ship goes under. If we take Mike Tomlin as our coach, we aren't the Steelers model of consistency. George is probably now going to get some big, obvious choice. And I will be excited by many. Loved the Trace Armstrong chatter, even though I don't know about Ryan Day. Love the idea of Harbaugh/Ireland. But all of these will be recreating GM runs scout staff, coach staff reports to GM, etc models that will have the bears relying that two single people get it right. That's why I kinda like the Trace Armstrong rumor the most, with the idea that he has outside experience to think about how to run this. I am not a ivy-league-oogler but I also find Kwesi Adofo-Mensah an interesting candidate as a VP/head role.

    Eh, more likely JR scenario is that Angelo is still President or something. I would rather JR be Bears owner than the McCaskeys, easily. I think he is a better owner in a salary cap format. The bulls have underachieved given the advantages Jordan gave them, but nowhere near the underachievement of the Bears franchise the last 30 years.

    When LA Chargers give Telesco a third coach, they just watched a season with one of the best rookie QB campaigns ever and a loaded offensive roster with some clear areas of upgrade. When the Bears would give Pace a 3rd coach, the team is old, expensive, without draft picks, and have an exciting QB who put up a pretty bad season. Just didn't make sense but being an insider can be a double edged sword.

    Schefter confirmed. I think some media was way too in love with what they could hear from their team sources on what they thought would happen when when you stepped back the situation was far too untenable for Pace to stay and this was a very, very likely scenario and what they were hearing was very, very unlikely.

    i don’t think there is any chance Pace stays, personally.

    The problem is he got his front office fired to take over so you wouldn’t know what kind of situation you are getting even if he was just HC.

    I love Zach and think a lot of stuff was unfounded, especially some of the defense when he had to carry the entire offense and that he was surrounded with absolute morons basketball wise. That said, when DDR is out this team looks normal. Zach is super efficient but at same time he’s sort of in game streaky, he doesn’t press if it’s not there. That’s great. But the bulls as long as they have had DDR have looked great. There is something to the superstar “eff you O can play my game no matter what” that I think is just a bit outside of.

    Fun how Vooch is settling into this role. Still missing some frustrating close shots but feels like his line has been like 18 pts 14 rebounds 5 assists and other stats stuffing. Just a magical run right now. Feels a lot like 2011.

    Paddy's work is by far the most complicated for me. I find it both incredibly productive and needlessly limited. The man brings in some of the biggest stars in the game in tatis, robert and abreu, has found some nice prospects when he had no money periods in Jose Rodriguez... and routinely punts on so much money. Not sure if it's him, but crazy that he doesn't want a more aggressive backing.

    I feel like DJJ gives us that kinda player already. On a side note, just unbelievably cool gesture of Demar DeRozan to go down to Champaign for Ayos jersey retirement ceremony.

    Ah, I didn't read the beginning but I thought since there was such a delay they had done talent rankings. Makes sense.

    eh, not a big deal. Paddy gave a kid a big bonus, I expect a lot out of him.
