Embarrassing.

If George did have to force Fields it shows Pace is incompetent and has to go. This whole season should have been about Fields including first team reps during the summer.

What. A. Mess.

If this is true...why would any coach want this job? I mean come on...My six year old has decided to become a Falcons fan. Maybe I should too.

No doubt in my mind that this is probably Nagy doing damage control.

He didn’t call the right plays for Fields to show he was right.

And now he wants to burn the house down to save face. This is a poop show all around. It needs to be demolished.

It is easy to believe that Nagy wanted to draft Jones, but was bigfooted by his boss. Collaboration breakdown.

If you aren't going to be a Bears fan... Why would you choose to be a fan of a worse franchise? Kind of defeats to purpose.

A big problem now is that the next coach is watching the dysfunction. A legit Pace replacement is a also watching and could be shdh


The dysfunction comes from George/Ted. This stuff is PR, not football operations and I have way way way more confidence in Pace hiring a head coach and filling out the roster than I do having those two hiring a new VP of Football Ops.

Phil Emery/Trestman were much worse of a combo than this pairing. George and Ted brought them in and as bad as things are right now, they're nowhere near the embarrassment that Emery/Trestman were.

I don’t know who is handling the current mess, but hiring and firing coaches is definitely a football operation. FWIW, something like a W/L record of 45 and 61 with no playoffs wins is definitely a football operation issue, to which filling out the roster is related. Where we should find the confidence in Pace to handle his 3rd coach hire, especially after his last one kind of blew up a quarterback that required a massive investment in draft picks is unknown.


He didn't hire Fox.

George and Ted's search firm suggested he did and Pace had to go along with it.

George and Ted fired Angelo/Lovie and replaced them with Emery and Trestman. What you're advocating for is them to correctly identify a coach/GM combo while they're also preoccupied with this Arlington Heights move.

My point is this + firing Pace after allowing him to select the next QB is another level of ineptitude. I trust Pace over those two a million times out of a million.

You made this up off of no reporting.

Nagy just believed in his plan, he's extremely high on Fields by every single account.

George wanted a winning season this year based off of the end of season reporting last year. Nagy believed his best shot at that was by playing Dalton, they would have been empty wins but that's what George was advocating for.

-If you're going to demand Fields be the starter - do it before training camp so he can be adequately prepared

-If you're going to fire the GM/Head Coach - do it last year so they're not out here setting the foundation for the franchise for somebody else

-If you're going to fire the head coach, don't let it leak out that you're already made that decision and then have the dude coach the team on Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving and good luck to the Bears and all the suffering Bears Realgm fans.
Lets hope Desai dials up havoc and we get 10 sacks and Dalton throws for 400 and 4+TDs
We finally break the Lions spirit after coming close recently -and they go on to 0-16-1 to add to their infamous 0-16 season.

Lets also hope for a wonderful holiday season for Nagy--where he gets to spend a lot of time with his wonderful wife (who actually is his high school sweetheart) and kids. If you are mad at him--google and look at his family photo --and in your heart you cannot hate the guy IRL--just his performance as Bears HC.

He will cherish this time with his family (in hindsight) and so will Bears fans. He will get a soft landing on his fat contract buyout as well as likely get hired as an assistant somewhere else. And we will just be happy to know a change is coming.

Without Roquan for the majority of the game - good for these guys. Really awkward week, could have easily been a loss but good for Matt that he didn't lose to the Lions.
