Lost me at "feels like he's a play caller not a head coach"

Has he seen him call plays? Its like they're randomly generated or picked by fans in the stands......and who is a "play caller" if their team is continually ranked near the bottom in points and yards?

So he's saying Pace and Nagy aren't "football people"?
No one in the bears front office are football people ! I don’ believe bears fans need to be told that . Many have stated the obvious. I have no idea of what it’s going to take nor who is going to get it done but I do know who it won’t be !

Nagy and Pace are football people, they're just football people who don't have a track record for making very good decisions. I guess I'm not understanding what this term, "football people" is supposed to mean.

The complete opposite of what you just said. People with a track record to make the correct decisions. A GM who doesn’t put the team in cap hell, hires the right HC and signs the right players. A HC that knows how to be a HC.

Well your definition of a 'football person' is then a person who makes the correct decisions 100% of the time, or at least the majority of the time. You don't need to be a football person to be great at working the cap, for instance. You can be a bean counter and be great at that.

I do think Pace and Nagy are football people by virtue of the fact that they made a career in pro football. They just aren't in the correct positions to be making decisions for his franchise.

Usually when that term is leveraged out, it's pointing at ownership and whoever is in charge of finding the right GM, as well as how the organization runs.

Right but there's no indication that Ted Phillips is making the key football decisions here, they hired a "football person" to do that. The football person in charge just isn't very good, or hasn't been very lucky with his decisions.

When people ask for a "football person" they're really just saying let's try again with a different football person. Not that we currently don't have a football person at GM or HC.

Maybe he knows something the rest of us only suspect

Don't tell that to the 94% of posters here who think he's the one making game plans.

Meh, didn't listen to it....didn't have to. Another national media guy thinking he has all the answers....Nagy a play caller? Please. These goofs are all the same....watch a few highlights and be judgemental with only a portion of what we hear and see every day. I stopped listening to sports radio when I realized they were nothing but audio click bait.
