I'd rather have Flores as HC and Caldwell as OC. He was Flores' 1st OC in Miami but had to step away for a medical issue.

I can't hate on that move, so long as Flores is on board with letting Caldwell develop Justin Fields and end the alleged Watson obsession.

I really don't care as long as he can develop Fields

I know that he is one of three candidates I trust with that job, but the only one that's also an experienced head coach.

His staff will be pivotal, but he's been in the NFL forever...so I too cannot see how it would be a problem for him.

Looks like it's going to come down to Leftwich as our only hope for an offensive guy. Daboll already interviewing for a 2nd time in NY, so you know that's their guy.

JAX seems to be deciding between Eberflus and Leftwich, so we could end up losing out on both offensive candidates and end up with Mr. Cover 2 Matt Eberflus.....

Got a raw deal in Indianapolis too IMO.

He's still my lead dog in the race. He won't be coaching the Bears in 2030, but he can set this team on the right path in 2022.

I'd be more excited for a Morocco Brown/Jim Caldwell combo than 99% of Bear Nation I bet.
99.79% is more reasonable lol

Has Morocco Brown even gotten an interview with anybody else? That's concerning to me that nobody else seems to want him, and he might end up getting the Bears job. At least we know Poles has been a finalist in 3 places.

Such a defensive guru that's he's not a defensive coordinator but rather a defensive line coach for the Raiders. GURU baby!

He took over as DC for the Raiders in Dec after a two game losing streak. They proceeded to win 4 in a row and make the playoffs with the D playing pretty well.

LOL at Marinelli being a defensive guru. Hey Greg, 2010 called and it wants it's hot take back.
haha actually I think it was Dan Quinn who gave a ton of credit to Marinelli .

Marinellie sucked as a HC but he is one of the best defensive coaches in the game

No Pace himself said he was all in on Fox. The being saddled with Fox is just something Pace and his supporters released after the fact to distance Pace from Fox.
Well don’t you think it would’ve been weird if Pace said “eh I don’t really like this guy” when Fox was hired. I’d think pretty standard to say you’re all in.

Gus Bradley is the defensive coordinator for the Raiders. Marinelli took over as interim defensive coordinator in 2020.

It is also pretty standard to try and blame others for your failures so we are left with believing his actual words or believing anonymous stories that he is too cowardly to put his name to.

Yeah my bad. Got the years mixed up. Still was a DC as recently as last year and their play down the stretch was certainly driven by the DL play.

He is clearly still a top D coach. I see no reason to pretend otherwise.

Or he stepped away just like Chan Gailey did because Flores is a dick and hard to work with
