I don't think there is anyone here who isn't impressed.

Ok I love the press conference and all. Ron seems to want to make this team a winner right off the bat. But like the old saying goes "Talk is cheap, Action speaks louder then words". Now Ron shut your mouth and go do the job of turning this team into a winner.;)

Not saying I disagree at all...I think this is a great hire and I caught a glimpse of the presser and he looks impressive and is saying the right things. Thumbs up here.

But.

I can't wait to hear the howls the first time someone picks up a blitz and throws a 60 yard TD on us. :)

He's knocking this press conference out of the park.

No wonder Chargers and Bears fans are bummed out, while NFC South foes are a little nervous...this guy seems like a natural. On top of it all the optimism in the air here is downright refreshing.

I gaurantee that he won't be clapping his hands while the team is coming off the field.

I got the same impression, he said he likes our TE's but we might be looking for someone who can fill all the roles (blocking, receiving,etc)


Chargers fans seem to think the TE coach is coming here to be our OC...

How can you not be impressed with what he said during the presser. He is very straight forward there is no guessing as to what he is saying. It is refreshing to hear a press conference of someone who is speaking with purpose and passion. I also liked when he said he wants coordinators/position coaches who are teachers. He also said he would look at the recently released coaching staff for postions within the coaching staff; that is possibly a chance to retain the RB and WR coach.

Guys this guy reminds me of a Tomlin but with a better background. This cat was under Mike Ditka and won a friggin superbowl. He has been lucky to be coached by some of the best and learn from some of the best. This Cat is for real and going to bring it!

I am thinking he is going to go Defense with the first pick. From the way he was talking we will bring in a Vet to compete with Clausen and I think he really wants to sit him for a year or so and let him develop and learn. As much as I am not a clausen fan I agree 100% throwing him in there like we did, with the players out that we had and the other youth that was playing, there is no way in hell we can get a fair assessment of him. I think we are going to sign or trade for a vet.

With his background and he is a proven guy with the Defenses he has put on the field, I am going to say this is the Cat that finally gets us where we want to go. Will it happen overnight? Nope, but hey I am more than willing to give this guy time to get this team where it needs to be. Damn I am excited to see the storm he brings on defense!

This Cat was part of the 85 Da Bears, the greatest Defense in the NFL history, and was tutored by the great Mike Ditka.

I'm happy - he didn't give any lame dead end answers. I'm excited and ready to get going.

I did not get any indication where he looks to use the #1 pick. Seems like he wants to be fair in his initial appraisal of the roster. I did notice he referenced some rules before he could begin interviewing coordinators and position coaches - sounds like some of the people he's interested in are on the current playoff teams.
