Bears 2016 and NOW 2017

I would take River Boat Ron

I like Gase for the future of Mitch 

Do you think spread guru dudes like Leach and Brohm can translate to the pro game?   I know some concepts work here and there, but full on spread hurry up, like Chip Kelly currently doesn't have a good track record.

Watching young Mr. Trubsiky start his first NFL game Monday night I found it interesting when one of the announcers say that he had to learn to take the snap under center, that his entire high school and college career was in some kind of spread/shotgun system.    

*smh* Where has real football gone?

Does it have to be hurry up? I think spread systems can work in the NFL (with the right personnel) but I don't think full on hurry up will ever work regardless of the system. I am not sure I can see Leach's personality working well with pro players either lol

Most college coaches, it seems, can't cut it in the pros.  Although this pains me to say it, Pete Carroll is an exception.  I didn't like him at USC and now can't stand him in Seattle.

The wide open - spread offenses will continue to proliferate, and you will likely see MORE college coaches moving up to the NFL in the future.  There are so few drop back passers remaining in the college game today that NFL offenses are forced to implement college style attacks    They really dont have much choice.  Even the more traditional NFL offenses use elements of the college style of play.  

Its really hard anymore to sit down and name a long list of NFL head coaches.  Its not a very impressive list.  To the contrary, there is a lot of talent at the college level today.  Guys like PJ Fleck, Jeff Brohm, James Franklin, will all likely get their shots at the pro level.

All good coaches without a doubt.  But I do recall a guy named Nick Saban coached the Dolphins: how did that turn out?

Saban didn't like not having total control, has that at Bama, didn't at Dolphins

One to watch now is Dirk Koetter at Tampa Bay.  He was at Arizona State.  Like the way he operates and runs his program.

I watched the sequence on final cutdown day when they reduced roster from 85 to 53 plus the 5 man practice squad.  It was great TV.  The interaction between coach-GM- staff was very interesting to watch as they dealt with each player individually.  Koetter was excellent and very professional.

Schedule looks very manageable rest of the way for the Bears.  Combined record of teams remaining on the schedule is 24-28.  

IU star Jordan Howard rushed for 167 yards today.  Looks like Bears will go with a run heavy attack rest of the year to protect rookie QB Trubisky.  Love it.  Old style Chicago Bear football.

Fox HAS to go. I'm good if they pick any of the following: Harbaugh, Rivera, Koetter(always been good with young QB's), Brohm. 

I'm a big Mike Leach fan but I don't think he'd translate to the NFL. Just too serious for him and I think he likes being able to do his own thing. Schemes match up though. Air Raid is condensed West Coast with more spread and no huddle. 

Really starting to like how the defense is shaping up. Floyd can't be blocked most passing downs. Jackson is going to be long time starter and Fuller is finally living up to expectations. 

The coaches have to let Mitch throw the ball more especially on 1st down. Good number for us should be 25-30 a game. 16 attempts in an overtime game is terrible. But they tried to play it safe against 2 good defenses that love to blitz. The problem is that teams will continue to blitz until you show you can beat it.

Bears are taking offensive football back to the 50s.  Trubisky 4 of 7 for 107 yards today, and they BEAT the Panthers.   3-4 now, and coming along with a weak back half schedule.
