    With all the insider scoop today that Trestman and staff are gone who should the candidates be. For kicks Emery status is now questionable so who is available. Many GM's may not want to come to Chicago per reports and if Emery hires a new HC he needs an extension to match the new regime or will Phil and Ted be relieved and re-assigned respectively.

    I would love to see a re-organization and a President of football operations brought on board. I doubt that will happen thus the same questions regarding Phillips ability to bring in a GM looms. Thus I presume Emery will survive and probably get the extension to secure a HC and staff to be interested. Typically they bring in both Offense and Defensive minded coaches.

    Defense Rex Ryan
    Offense Jim Harbaugh

    Who else should be considered. One of each please.

    so who are they, you have to have a list. Also why "never been and NFL HC", one of the complaints is we hire inexperienced coaches. If you want experience no experience as NFL Coach would contradict the complaints

    I want someone who knows what they are doing, but that is not the Bears way. They do not hire a HC who has previously been one.

    two years ago when we went with Tressman the Bears were the gig to land. We could of had pretty much whoever we wanted. Now we are a train wreck, it will take some smooth talking and money to land a real coach.

    Its not their way to fire a HC with 2 years on the contract either. So if it is going to happen I am trying to establish the high bar and determine where we may settle.

    That would almost clinch they will hire another first timer

    Legends are made from opportunities like this. Some HC will believe in Cutler under there scheme. The defense has some young players with proper coaching have the chance to be solid players. With this years draft we can fill several needs and they have an option to live with Cutler, draft his replacement for next year, or work out some sort of trade. Many options along with potentially $40 million of cap space. I still believe Chicago is a dream job and suspect many candidates would like the opportunity.

    Somebody with a 'smaller' sized playbook would be good cuz it needs to be dumbed-down for our players . It's not necessarily a bad thing . Lombardi was known to have a smaller sized playbook but he drilled his guys hard and made them learn how to play them to perfection . He won with it and he inherited a bad team . Our guys look confused to me like they're playing the 1st pre-season game , every game . They need to know what the identity of their offense is . Defense has to be the same .

    They're not gonna get anybody w a brain ( and any good ) to come in here unless the guy has a clean slate and a bona-fide fresh start . That means no GM who is on shaky ground (or who has to run FOOTBALL decisions thru idiot Phillips ) , nobody forcing him to accept coaches from the previous staff , no ridiculous press conference test etc . It's their only chance .

    I know it would be freakin awesome to get a new coaching staff but I still don't think it's happening.

    We need to stop acting like it's a done deal. Just because the McCaskeys had a meeting doesn't mean Trestman & Co. are going anywhere. Let's all calm down and keep on dreaming. lol

    To answer your question, I don't really have just one candidate. There are a few interesting ones.

    Defensive-minded: McDermott, Quinn, Austin, Bowles, Ryan, Patricia.

    If Emery or whoever is the new GM, still wants to hire an offensive-minded HC, Seattle's Darrell Bevell would be my first choice. Then Harbaugh and Gase.

    However if we hire a new HC, we need to let him decide who he wants as coordinators. It's not up to GM to decide.

    We could hire a coach and give them GM powers. See if Emery wants to stay in lesser role. Harbaugh would like that opportunity I'm sure.

    Our QB could only win a superbowl if he had absolutely everything going for him:
    = Great defense, great ST, top running game, excellent protection and gun WR's. It's near impossible to get that, especially when you pay your QB 16mil ++ a year.

    So the first order of business is to give up on the dream of winning the superbowl with Cutler and give up on the idea that having 8 win seasons are successes.

    Whoever we hire has to have a plan on how they are getting rid of Cutler, even if it means keeping him for 2015 then paying him out after that. A trade is the best result, solves the problem quickly.
