Sure things could change at the last minute and Shanahan isn't the coach, but the Bears are a hot mess right now. I'd rather go to Buffalo I was Shanny. I think Cutler will bounce back but, apart from the fact that the Bears probably won't pay Lovie and Shanahan all that money, the Bears don't even have a first round or a second round pick. Gaines Adams for a 2nd has to be one of the worst trades in a long, long time.

I just don't see Shanahan in Chicago
What's it going to cost to get Shanahan here you think, $10M a year? More?

Re: Are the Bears a Legit spot for Shanny?

that's probably a pretty good guess. and after the Giants game debacle, Snyder is probably ready to pay anything to get a proven commodity here

Re: Are the Bears a Legit spot for Shanny?

You know last night I had a dream that we signed Rob Ryan to be our next head coach at 6 years, $67 million. I know right! Rob Ryan!

So I'm going to say 5 years, $55 million

How can one not see the writing on the wall? It's practally written by a street tagger all over the wall.

Washington's
next HC is....
Shanny!
It's neither, wasn't Spurrier supposed to be the savior? then Gibbs? How did those work out exactly, 1 playoff trip and a crushing defeat to the Seahawks.

Yeah, forgive me if I don't seem super pumped until we are an 11-5 team and favorites entering a playoff game.

Re: Are the Bears a Legit spot for Shanny?

Going back to the thread title...Chicago is in a much bigger mess than us, at least we have a semblance of WR corps and a pretty good defense. Only thing Chicago has going for it is that Urlacher might come back next season.

Shanny would have to be an idiot to pass up DC for Chi Town even if the money is better.

More importantly the Chicago franchise is very conservative financially. Not to be confused with cheap a la the Bengals and Cardinals but from what I've read they seem to go out of their way at times to save money. One of the main reasons they're considering keeping Lovie Smith is because they still owe him money.

Nice quote but when you say we will over pay for our man, who do you me by we? Im a big fan but i have not written any checks to sign or pay the coaches of the Redskins.

Re: Are the Bears a Legit spot for Shanny?

When will the time come that the Redskins can keep a coach for more than 3 years. This has to contribute to our poor recorder over the past 10 years. If you look at the other teams in the NFC East look how long their HC has been in place. These teams seem to have much more success with this method of keeping the same HC and system. I hope we can learn something from them when it comes down to selecting a Head Coach.

In my opinion, Zorn wasn't bad enough where he had to be fired after two years for the good of the team, but the coaching staff itself needs a shake-up. If you didn't cut your losses with Zorn here, he just becomes a lame duck coach all of next year. It's highly possible that the offense wouldn't improve under Zorn in a third year.

I'm not convinced Shanahan will last more than two years here either. Not that I think he'll get fired, but the temptation to resign will always be there because better jobs will come available. I think if Kyle Shanahan coaches here for a season, and gets a head coaching job in this league after that, that Mike Shanahan will not end the streak of non-Gibbs head coaches that only captain the ship for two years or fewer.

I think the opposite about both Shanahans. I'd expect Mike to be here for a good 5 years with the expectation that he'll be succeeded by Kyle.

Just crap to drum up hype to increase rag sales or hits on the net. Chicago is a mess and can't up the ante like The Danny can.

Biggest mistake in hindsight was the way Turner was canned. 7-6 in 2000 and DS pulled the plug, and didn't give Turner a shot at making the playoffs a second time around. Fault the Norv all you want, but with the exception of Gibbs, he had the best O scheme around. In fact he probably had the best O scheme even over Gibbs. THe current bunch of WRs and JC would have broken records ala Johnson/Westbrook/Connell/Alexander in '99 with that system in place. Screw this WCO crap.

It's going to be a very long time before the Bears start winning again.
The Chicago situation is not difficult to turn around if they bring in someone who is willing to admit that they screwed up in the Cutler trade. Cutler-Knox-Desmond Clark-Olsen-Forte is a very solid start to an NFL offense. The Bears' mistake was assuming that it WAS an offense.

Cut out the dead weight, get rid of Orlando Pace, get rid of Frank Omiyale, get rid of Kevin Shaffer, and draft one tackle, and one guard with your first two (second day) picks, and you'll have a functional offensive line there to protect Cutler. The 2010 Bears aren't exactly going to win a super bowl, but that's a wild card contender with a half decent offensive coach.
