    If he can't be trusted to get it right without George and Ted chiming in, they hired the wrong guy.

    Not to say Poles is a bad choice, I have no idea, and a lot of people who should know, seem to be impressed, but If Ryan Pace selected Mahomes instead of Mitch, how many of these KC execs and assistants would get interviews for big jobs?

    Not Bowles, Flores.

    Poles is supposedly really close with Bowles.

    Jack's example took 8 seconds. So even if they got to the 40, they have 4 seconds to get in FG range. 4 seconds for a 20 yard play and they would have to make a real long FG. If it takes 5, the game is over.

    Either way, If your defense can't keep them out of FG range with 13 seconds left, a loss is what is deserved.

    It doesn't matter. There was 13 seconds left. If they have the ball on the 35 with 8 or 9 seconds left, best case scenerio, they have to get into FG range the next play or they have to throw a Hail Mary. They would have had to gain 25 yards for a 57 yd attenpt. The way that defense was getting carved up, I'd take my chances on the return team than Mahomes. Hell, kick it to the 5 yard line, make them return it.

    Even if they got an extra 10 yards, it would have been well worth the 4 or 5 or 6 seconds on the clock. They would have had 1 play and a Hail Mary in all lilelyhood.

    Still, the offense is something you don't see. The Bears, to maximize Fields, have to use his running ability. He can't be as physical as Allen, but he is faster and can make more miss. It was lunacy the way Nagy was using him.

    Watching the Bills offense, I was dreaming of Fields being used the same way.

    I still don't understand why Buffalo didnt squib it after scoring with 13 seconds. It gave Mahomes an extra play. And I don't know how the Bears hire the DC whose defense blew the game with 13 seconds left.

    Yeah, might as well get rid of all the worthwhile pieces while you still have an interm GM. Would hate to let the guy you are waiting forever to hire make the decisions. What a fall from grace the organ I zation has had.

    Welcome to the MLB work stoppage

    Yes, but no playoff team signed someone else's major free agent. It was a game to try to get the union to cave.

    The other thing that scares me is if you are the best candidate but not in love with Justin Fields, you have no shot.

    Kind of strange they are hiring a guy who most likely has never been a GM, and giving him all the power, but basically saying he doesn't have the skills to hire his own coach.
