i would take tice, or schottenheimer from the jets. the only reason he looks bad this year, is because of the lack of a running game,, and needing to throw with sanchez just to get the ball moving. i think he would be a perfect fit in chicago
no offence but Jets fans I know to a man seem to hate Schottenheimer. Granted they have had a lot of O-line issues this year with injuries and poor depth but his play-calling has been roasted on the forums I read, we've just got rid of an OC with questionable calls and the one we had before was even worse. Do we need more of the same?
We can't afford Shanny but we can afford the guy who was Jay's QB coach and playcaller, Jeremy Bates.
The problem with scaring up a new OC as I see it is that all they can offer is a two year deal which is what's left on Lovies deal. It almost has to be someone who was recently fired or you bring in a guy like Bates and pair him with Tice. Tice can run the line and the running game while Bates handles the QB and receiver positions and calls plays on Sundays.
Whoever it turns out to be he needs to realize TE's are more than just spare OT's used to bail JWebb out of hot water. I truly believe Kellen Davis could be a much better all around TE than Greg Olsen will ever be. He just needs to be thrown to often enough to show it.
It's a good day. I'm just glad the two biggest stumbling blocks to the Bears success are now gone. There is little out there that wouldn't be an improvement over those two.
Nice to see you back in action, soul. For a bit there, you had me worried. I was thinking that you had gone off your meds or something
I wish Gary Kubiak had gotten fired years ago so we could have him as an offensive coordinator. I like the zone run schemes, and with Matt Forte, that would work beautiful for the Bears, especially when the weather gets bad along the shore line of Lake Michigan.
