Pagano to Bears

Recommended Posts

Happy for the guy.

 

I think he's gonna do really well. When he had talent in Baltimore, they had a strong defense (I believe second in the league).

 

I expect he'll do well

 He inherited Ray Lewis, Suggs, Ed Reed and a bunch of other Quality experieced holdovers for the one year they coached their defense. Good Luck Chuck. This will save Irsay a Mill or Two.

I'm so glad to see this.

Coach Chuck has always gotten players to play hard....

 

He was a winning coach with the Colts until Andrew got hurt.

..and for him to fall in with this defense is a dream situation.

 

Good for him

And now he's got Mack, Floyd, Eddie Jackson, Roquon Smith, and a bunch of other studs. He's gonna be fine.

Happy for the man. He and Nagy combined could do some good things together. 

 

Good luck Chuck!

  • Good luck Chuck.

 

He knows defense and the Bears have one of the best defensive groups in the league.

Bears really want to keep the 3-4 it seems. They kept Fangio after they let John Fox go. 

 

Pagano isnt HC material, but his secondaries were always respectable with us. I think this is a good move for him.

O man. I can say Pagano had absolutely no business being an NFL head coach. I'm usually on the other side of arguments like this, thinking generally if you make it to that NFL you're pretty damn good at whatever you do. Pagano is an exception to that. He was just so over his head and clueless. Maybe as a DC he will be ok, but I hope for their sake he's not calling the plays lol.

He was a good DC for that one year in Baltimore. Had a lot of talent on that defense, but he will in Chicago. Not a bad hire at all.

So name me the list of first time head coaches who had a better record than Pagano did.

I will be waiting.

I remember how charged this state was when Chuck was diagnosed and the team was winning for him. The way the community rallied around him. Was a special time I will remember fondly. I sincerely wish Chuck the best and hope he does great..... except against the SHOE!

Happy for him.

 

He spent how long here preaching "Building the monster" ? I am curious to see what he does with that Chicago D because he is inheriting a monster right away as he walks in.

 

Let's see how he schemes them and what he does w that beastly D.

 

Glad he is getting another gig.

Congrats to Pagano but I don’t really like this hire for the Bears.  Significant step down from Fangio in my opinion.

Smart move by Chuck, great gig and if he has a season or two with that defense playing at their #1 level he could find himself as a HC again. Wish him all the best!

Best of luck to him. That's a great fit for him. They already have the type of talent for his preferred style of defense. On top of that it's really good talent. I'm sure he will do well there.

Man I dont want to get into it like that.  I feel like we won in spite of pagano not because of him. He just looked clueless, the team always came out flat, inexplicable decisions at times, no accountability to players... I mean like I said he seems like a good person so I don't want to sit here and bash him but in my objective opinion he is not qualified to be an NFL head coach.

Your opinion? Yes... Objective? No..

I'm happy for Chuck. He deserves another chance to get in the game, if not as HC at least as DC. And now he's going to have the defensive talent to show off what he can do as a defensive mind. No excuses now. Good luck to him.

    • You see how that's a conflation of two separate issues? (With a sprinkling of a third issue, tbh.)   1) Team A picking at #15 might have a problem with Hockenson, maybe their evaluation of his talent or character or whatever. Maybe they have a second round grade on him. Team B picking at #26 might have Hockenson as a top ten player on their board. And maybe a handful of other teams between those two have higher grades on different players that align with their needs, or maybe they aren't disciplined in their approach or have different draft philosophies. Maybe some of those teams don't see positional value in TEs, so they pass on Hockenson, leaving him available at #26. Again, the point is that not every team has the same board, and there are many reasons why that might be the case.   2) You're adding in the quality of the evaluation. Team B might think more highly of the player than anyone else, and maybe they're right and he turns out to be a stud. Maybe they're wrong, and he's a dud. But that's a question of player evaluation, not draft strategy.   3) Gronk was a second rounder himself. And he's turning out to be one of the best TEs in NFL history. Anyone saying 'Hockenson is the next Gronk' isn't being an honest evaluator, and I don't want my GM drafting players because he's convinced they'll be the next HOF player at any position. The odds stacked heavily against that. (I said the same last year to everyone claiming Barkley was a guaranteed HOFer who would singlehandedly elevate any offense to the top of the league.) That's a way to rationalize drafting a player you're in love with. It's not a disciplined draft strategy.
    • Agreed. My over arching point to BPA vs needs discussion is that the terms themselves can have different meanings, so the various good points made can get lost in the wash.   But I do think the preponderance of thinking lists BPA agnostic of attributes for a given scheme, which is how the national websites tend to do it.  So when GMs pick the 45th ranked player with pick 33, many criticize the pick as "reaching" for a need because they they don't stop to think that 5 or 6 players ranked in between weren't even considered a good fit for the team to begin with.   
    • Him and Lewis will elevate that draft class even higher. 
    • You're putting your own "spin" on this.  It has everything to do with what Ballard chose to do.   Ballard could have prevented his players from hitting free agency at all by overpaying them in the first place.   He doesn't want to overpay, so he "allows" them to hit free agency, find out that no team will overpay, then "brings" them back at their true value.
    • Yes I know, I wasn't going to list all possibilities.  I just listed one possibility to illustrate there is more to it than one person "letting" him test the market then "bringing" him back.     My point was about the tone of the comment coupled with the lack of substance supporting the tone of the comment.   But I see throughout the thread that typical sensitivities about broader things have surfaced so y'all carry on.
