I think Bears end up with Nagy if this is true. He seems to want to work with them and Chi have some nice young pieces with their RBs.

McDaniels will most likely be ours most likely. He won't have to teach a raw kid how to play he can just come in and start installing with one of the best.
 

 

Good. I hope Nagy does go with the Bears. He is certainly not a favorite candidate of mine.

I can only remember 3 coaches who won superbowl(s) with their first teams as HC in the last 30-35 years. And I doubt there were many before. Those 3 I remember are Harbaugh, Payton and McCarthy.

 

Do you mean first time head coach in the NFL? If so, there have been many more. In addition to Tomlin, I can think of Brian Billick, Bill Parcells, Bill Cowher, George Seifert, Jimmy Johnson, Mike Holmgren, Mike Ditka. There may be others that I don't remember.

Listen to this post game address by him: 

 

 

He is well spoken and commanded the room. He knows his X’s and O’s, probably better than Pagano. He also held one of his young CBs accountable by saying what he did wrong. He didn’t just sit there and sing the praises of the team but was critical and went into depth about how the game went. That’s all HC stuff IMO.

I can 100 Percent see this guy as a HC. I think he'd do a fantastic job. He knows things down to the fine details and easily articulates what he wants. Then he holds people accountable including himself.

I watched only 5 minutes. I was impressed. He sounds and carries himself like a head coach ("commanded the room" is accurate). Reports are that Gettelman wants to hire Wilks to be the next Giants head coach. 

 

If Colts fans don't want a rookie head coach, Shurmur would work well with Luck. I have not heard any reports of the Colts being interested in Shurmur.

He does look like a 'leader of men' and he does look like a great communicator. I wouldn't mind him as a HC. Honestly, we probably know very little about the candidates when it comes to HC-worthy attributes, so I guess if you trust Ballard you will trust his choice, if you don't you probably will have questions about whoever he hires. Right now, he hasn't given me reasons to distrust him so I feel good about most of the candidates and I will feel OK with pretty much any of them.

I had brought up Pettine as a possible DC for Toub weeks ago.

Yep, he seems like the embodiment of the "command of the room" cliche. If there was an entry on wikipedia on it, they could put that clip in there and people would know what is meant by it.

He is rubbing off on me too. I like him.

Wilks reminds me a lot of Mike Tomlin personality wise. Only I think he may be smarter. Hes the guy I want. Defensively I know the scheme would change, but they use bigger players in that version of the 4-3 he runs. Most of our players would still fit and I love that he believes in bringing that blitz.

He would be good at DC.  I wanted Caldwell at OC (if he'd take the job).

Funny, but I listened closely to what he was saying in his presser. The beginning sounded exactly like Pagano. In addition, he used the word "great" over and over. Used terms like "one day at a time", and "It's hard to win a game in the National Football League", and "It was a great team win", and "Its all about taking that next step", gave credit to the other team, saying they were well coached....etc, etc. 

 

No, I am not saying that he is not head coach material. I am pointing at the over the top criticism of Chuck Pagano's word choices in his pressers, and how Wilks is now attractive....partly because he is new. If he were to become the head coach, and take us down the same road, his cliches would become irritating to many fans just the same....without merit. Sayings and cliches don't make coaches good or bad. Coach Pagano failed as a coach in the owners and GM's eyes, and he is gone. It would be refreshing to see fans praise or criticize the next coach because of his coaching abilities....not because of his speaking at a presser. 

 

Just a thought...

Wow same thing I thought, smarter IDK but he might have become my favorite candidate!! when does he come in for and interview. I was really impressed!! Have to admit I do like Tomlin a lot and the way he carries himself.

Just have to remember that coach speak is spoke all the time by almost all coaches. They all fall pretty much under the same umbrella.

It's hard to fill time without giving any information away.

The thing with Toub is that he could probably assemble an impressive staff. His connection with Reid goes back to the 80s, and he’s worked with a lot of great people from his time in Philly, Chicago, and now KC. Pettine would be a nice DC. 

 

Wilks is at the top top of my list now, but Toub would put together an incredible staff.

Chuck Pagano didn't get fired because he used too many cliches.....

 

There are plenty of other LEGITIMATE reasons why he was fired.

 

Come on now...

Except for B.B., he never says anything more to the press than what’s required.  He’s earned the ‘no nonsense’ right.  

 

I dont care what they say, I care how they prepare and how the team reacts to them.

IF Wilks is smarter than Tomlin (a W&M graduate) then whomever lands him is getting a very intelligent man. I’d be very happy if the Colts hire Wilks.

Well, I have to say, after the Chiefs-Titans game, Nagy has fallen off my list of favourite candidates. After Kelce's injury, that entire offense has fallen apart despite with Smith, Hill, Hunt were still on board. 

No, thank you.

I agree don't want anybody from KC no better than Pagano.

    • Another NFL Preseason Game Night, Colts fans!    A battle of  0-2  teams  seeking their first win in the 2019 NFL preseason play in Circle City, as the Chicago Bears come south on Interstate 65,  to play our Indianapolis Colts in both teams preseason meeting in four years.    Chad Kelly and Phillip Walker are the only other Colts quarterbacks available,  both listed in the training camp roster, and the team depth chart, probably available to play tonight, since neither Jacoby Brissett or Andrew Luck will play the rest of the preseason.   Current Bears Defensive Coordinator Chuck Pagano also returns to Indianapolis, where was the Colts Head Coach from 2012-2017.   Indianapolis and Chicago are playing their 16th all-time preseason game, with the Colts leading the all-time preseason series between the teams at 9-5-1.  Colts defeated the Bears in their last game, and visit to Indianapolis by the score of 23-11 back on August 22, 2015.   Indianapolis also  currently leads the all-time regular season series at 23-11, including  winning Super Bowl XLI over the Bears, their only playoff win  over Chicago.  Colts also defeated the Bears, winning 29-23, during both teams last regular season meeting also played at Lucas Oil Stadium (the building),  back on October 9, 2016.   Colts may play the Bears at Soldier Field, when the AFC South teams play the NFC North teams during interdivisional play in the 2020 NFL regular season.   Colts defeated the Bears  29-17 in Super Bowl XLI, during  the rainy, and then-named at the time, Dolphins Stadium At Miami Gardens, back on February 4, 2007.   The 2006 Colts team that finished 12-4 during the regular season were lead by  Head Coach Tony Dungy, and Super Bowl XLI MVP  QB Peyton Manning.   LOS's retractable roof might be open for tonight's 7:05 PM Eastern Standard Time kickoff, because the local gamecast around the stadium area is 75 degrees, 0% precipitation, 52% humidity, and  east/northeast winds at 11 miles per hour.   Great luck to all the Colts and Bears players, especially the backup players and reserves, as they continue to audition during their  training bears-week-3-camp, and the preseason games, on trying to make the cut to the final 53.   NO injuries, GO Blue Horseshoe, Win Your First Preseason Game, And Home Game In Your 2019 NFL Season, and LET'S GO COLTS!!!!!                 .    https://colts.com/news/bears-week-3-preseason-preview   https://colts.com/game-day/2019/pre/bears-at-colts/   https://nfl.com/gamecenter/2019082452/2019/PRE3/bears@colts   https://indystar.com/sports/colts   https://chicagobears.com/news/pagano-expects-an-emotional-return-to-Indy  
    • Tom Brady wanted to trademark the nickname "Tom Terrific".    He lost.  The US Patent and Trademark office rejected Brady's request to trademark the term. Brady says he was trying to protect Tom Seaver's nickname. Lolol. Spare me, Brady.    “Has anyone ever even called him ‘Tom Terrific’?” Mr. Talansky said. “Was ‘Vainglorious Cheater’ already trademarked?”   Tom Brady Is No ‘Tom Terrific.’ Any New Yorker Can Tell You That. https://www.nytimes.com/2019/08/23/nyregion/tom-brady-seaver-terrific.html  
    • Bummer that all the starters are out! I’m going with a group of friends, including some Bears fans(Boo!). Alot of people on here saying they feel bad for people going and that it’s too much money to go watch scrubs....Going to a game at Lucas is more then just watching the game. It’s about tailgating, hanging out with good friends and having a good time, razzing the opposing teams fans, all in fun of course, and also hanging out with fellow bleed blue colts fans! Same reason I went to watch the Cubs even during the bad years, the atmosphere and fans were awesome no matter what. I don’t really mind watching the second and third stringers fighting for their futures.    As far as price, I got a pretty good seat for $48, so can’t complain. It’s going to be a fun day no matter what, not going in with high expectations like I do during regular season.
    • Well, you are rounding into mid-season form early this year. Good Job 
    • Walker did look much better last game compared to week 1, so props to him. Still, no comparison to CK. I had mixed emotions about bringing CK in, but now I really hope things work out. He looks "in command" and has a nice rhythm to his game. And he can make all the passes and has wheels.     I know it's only 2 preseason games, but I can understand now why Elway made him QB2 in Denver. It'll make parting with JB much easier.    IF he can keep his head on straight/.
