2021 NFL Season Thread

Recommended Posts

So now he gets to finish the season. He reminds me a bit like Jim Boylen. Nice guy, lots of potential, good credentials, things just didn't work out. I hope he gets another shot down the road.

I want no part of Fitz

He just is Mr. Northwestern. I can’t see him as an NFL head coach. He probably relates better to college athletes and his defensive and offensive systems have been subpar. So he’d need some awesome coordinators to be successful.

So if they fire Pace I do not want to see Ernie Acorsi near the bears "helping" them.

What about his hair piece?

Thats the problem, they are not football people. They might promote from within or hire a different consultant to see who they would want to bring in.

Day is an offensive coach. He had a year each with the Eagles and Niners as QB coach. I think he'd be a great get, but I'm not sure why he'd want to leave Ohio State for a job where it's 50/50 whether or not you get fired within 4 years.

If you can pry McDaniels out of New England, he'd be my #1 choice.

Thanks for the scoop on Day. I’d love to see McDaniels as coach but I do wonder if he is better as a coordinator. I might be wrong but it seems like the play callers may miss things on the field, I have only seen people like Andy Reid and Sean Payton do that well.

Trying to understand the words that pat fitzgeralds offensive and defensive systems have been subpar

I specifically don’t want a coach who is bringing a “system” he will rigidly fit his players into. Would much rather end up with some guy like Mike Vrabel next.

I mean, how could we possibly know if Ryan day is good? It doesn’t seem like it matters who coaches Ohio state, the part rolls on.

I hope they lose by 40. Such a terrible team and franchise.

I have seen more screens called with Dalton in the last two games than I have seen with Fields in all of his starts.  Its amazing how passive aggressive Nagy has been with Fields vs Dalton.

Just say no to a college head coach. No no no.

McCaskey: We're not firing Matt Nagy

Bears on Thanksgiving: You sure about that?

No - he didn’t say they weren’t firing him. They said the report was not true. There is a difference. He is getting canned (by the end of the year or sometime between now and the end of the year).

It can work but I don’t think Fitzgerald is special and he isn’t an offensive guy.

Horrible win.  Was really hoping the Lions were going to win and finish this charade. 
 

Dan Campbell is predictably a fucking joke.

Really, the loss doesn't really help the team.  The 1st rounder is gone anyways, without that, the only real incentive to lose is to get Nagy out the door quicker.  But it seems he lives to see another day.

 

Now, if they still had next years 1st, I would say hell yea, lose to the worst franchise in the league and hope that every head in the FO rolls tomorrow.  Sigh.  What could have been.

Did you want them to lose so he would be fired after the game and be held accountable? Would it make a difference now as opposed to the end of the year? And if Pace doesn’t get fired does it really matter if Nagy is fired?

Right. No first rounder makes it so there is little to no incentive. It’s almost better to just keep the lame duck coach a la Fassel to agree to coach until the inevitable at the end of the year. I am also a Nagy fan who hopes he will get another chance in the NFL as an OC and eventually as a head coach if he is fired. He hasn’t been the offensive guru he was hired to be but he at least had some good attributes about him. Then again I don’t know if a play calling head coach makes a sense for many coaches. CEO types make more sense.

Essentially yes. A loss to a winless team in the national spotlight might hasten the front office changes that need to happen. Is there a big difference between now and the end of the season? Probably not. But I’d rather see the changes sooner than later. 
 

As for draft picks, they don’t have their first rounder but high second round guys are still worth something.
 

It is in their best interest as an organization to lose.

They couldn't have fired him even if they lost today based on what they said to players and select media members after it was leaked Nagy was going away.. What would be funny is if Nagy or his agent leaked it.

At least you’re honest about it and admit your reasons. Some fans just say fire Nagy and don’t have anything more to say, particularly about who they want hired instead. Who do you think fits the bill for them as their next head coach? What do you think happens with the front office?

Anyone remember those football tables from the 70s/80s where you'd line up the toy football players, turn the power on, and the vibration of the table would have the players moving in random directions? This is roughly equivalent to watching the Bears offense.
