Does anyone think we'll see a chicago like situation next season?

18 posts in this topic

I could see us having a situation remarkably similar to the one going down in Chicago right now next season. New general manager who is giving the old coach a single season to show, what they are worth and ultimately deciding to part with the old coach, and go with their own guy. Going from a defensive oriented coach to an (hopefully in Carolina as well) offensive coach who knows how to get the most out of their quarterbacks. QB's with tremendous arm talent in contract year but haven't quite shown enough to demand a new contract before the end of their current ones. 

This off season the bears supplied Cutler with a whole lot of new weapons on offense and i think Gettleman is going to do the same with Cam. If it doesnt work out (which i find highly unlikely) he will bring his own Qb into a great situation and with a chance to succeed from the get go.

 

Am i the only one seeing a situation like this playing out next year?

Lovie Smith, while not perfect, was still in infinitely better head coach than Ron Rivera. At least he won games.

Ron said going for it on 4th and 1 against the bills would have been a desperation move. He just doesn't get it. We are a desperate team, we were desperate at 0-0. I think we can really open up these discussions after Sunday. We go 0-3 I think he's done. Even if we win we'll need to go on a run.

Cam is the man....he will succeed when the OC lets Cam be cam....I think RR will not be fired if we lose tomorrow which we won't...but I think Shula is gone for sure....Ricky to OC then go from there....

So if we are like Chicago next year does that mean that this year we will go 10-6 this year but barely miss the playoffs.

No we're gonna be like the Browns. Trade our best offensive player.

    • I used to be an INFP but I just took one that has me leaning INTJ: INTJ Introvert(44%)  iNtuitive(19%)  Thinking(1%)  Judging(22%) You have moderate preference of Introversion over Extraversion (44%) You have slight preference of Intuition over Sensing (19%) You have marginal or no preference of Thinking over Feeling (1%) You have slight preference of Judging over Perceiving (22%)
    • Times change and things evolve. Have you noticed that this year's draft class is the best in many years in the secondary? While the rules may be changing, have you noticed how defenses and players have changed as well? A guy like Fournette could be the thing we need to take advantage of the fact that this year and last year, CBs are being drafted once every 6 players and this year safeties are going to be drafted a ton as well. I think it was Linville and I who were thinking the same thing, that if you really want to get ahead of the current NFL, you do something no one else is building their teams to stop. I'd love to see us get into a real power running game, not a great running game because your QB gets as many yards as your lead back, but a running game that forces the D to not have extra DBs on the field causing play actions to be unstoppable. Maybe I am wrong, but it seems like NFL defenses are trending towards not being able to stop a great running game.
