    Default The Best Part of the Pagano Signing.

    Thank god we hired Pagano, I was getting worried that maybe Nagy would have to be Head Coach AND Defensive coordinator. I donít think heíd be good at both. Itís a lot. Offense and defense. Together.

    It must have been a very tough 32 hours for Nagy to have that possibility held over his head. Big shout to the front office for identifying a need at defensive coordinator, and addressing it. Iím also relieved that they hired someone with big time experience, which should prevent Nagy from deciding he wants to play defense also, causing the offense to suffer.

    This hugely benefits Pagano as well because heíll know without a doubt that HEís the defensive coordinator, and therefore is the coach of the defense because of it.


    Thanks.

    Wait, what’s the best part?

    That an offensive-minded coach would want his defensive coordinator to run the defense?

    That fact that you thought Nagy might also end up running the defense is staggering.

    Why did you think Nagy was gonna have his hand the defense. His number 1 priority is to help Trubisky take the next step.

    Hiring someone with head coaching experience is not a bad thing.

    I've always found pagano to be highly thought of. He kinda got a raw deal in Indy.

    Looking forward to maintaining defensive dominance in the north

    They were ranked #1 that year and fell off by a good amount the following year (though they won the SB). His 2011 defense had a better PPA than this year's Bears

    People calling op a troll just dont get it. With the pagano hire, Nagy has himself a DC who will literally take over Fangios role of Head COACH of the DEFENSE. this allows nagy to focus on the offense and playcalling so he doesnt have to worry about defense at all. When fangio left, I was concerned that Nagy would have to start watching the d side of the ball when the o is off the field, making adjustments to personnel, telling Mack if hes rushing or dropping back, counting how many players are out there, etc. Pagano can handle all of this as a DC because he has HC experience.

    I think it was that Nagy identified that we had a need at DC and took care of it. Stevie Wonder saw that need.

    Do you think Pagano will sit upstairs in the booth or stand on the sideline? Was curious which was a better place to yell to Mack and/or count the number of players on the field.

    Here's something to consider:

    Maybe the Bears decide to let Nagy control the defense just for the first six weeks or eight weeks or ten weeks even, that way if Pagano gets sniped after next year Nagy will be ready to command all phases of the football Bears.

    Strong teams prepare for every possible eventuality.

    I think counting players needs to be done from up top. But if he head coaches the defense to self-doubt, I'd prefer him to be a sideline pacer, get down there with his troops.

    Can't wait to see how this unfolds.

    Sorry for auto correct. Should be "self-count" not "self doubt"
