The lengths people will go to just to not have to change their biased opinion…

Honestly, seems like no team is overly impressed with any of the available HC candidates.

Its a very weak group, historically weak really when you factor in the amount of openings. Almost a third of the league needs a coach and we are into week 3. Unheard of.

I'm good with Caldwell being the OC to be paired with a Quinn or Eberflus type HC. If Fields thrives it's less likely Caldwell gets hired away like a younger OC likely would.
I don't know about that. Caldwell clearly is shooting for a HC gig, so if Fields thrives he'll likely take his last change at HC as soon as he can. Goes both ways, I suppose.

Kind of. Week 3 of the end of the season. HCs rarely take a job while they are still in the playoffs.

Caldwell is not even a bad head coach, he took the Colts to the Superbowl and took the shitty Lions to the playoffs twice and has a winning record with the Lions, I would not mind him

I think he was released?! Does that not absolve his contract?

It could be as bad as two high picks …but I say well worth it to see a competent offense in Chicago.
He's under contract until 2024 so they would get compensated if he took another HC gig before then.

According to him He (Poles) is the guy that is deciding - He said when Poles interviewed, his list of coaches was more than the 3 now and he might expand the list if he decides to.

Just didn't sound like Harbaugh was on anybodies list-

One of the guys I didn't even think of that was brought up in another thread was Poles - Dave Toub connection?

I would be OK with that
Yeah, have not heard Toub's name in a while, not sure why he hasn't gotten the node over the years, must be something there. My issue is I want a younger guy that can have a 20 year run like the Saints, Steelers, Ravens have had and I think Toub is in his 60's.

This guy is the goods. Several different winning organizations, Alabama, Patriots, Bills. Called his own offense for many years for several different teams. Developed over four years, a lights out QB with a similar skill set to JF.

Come on Poles, make this happen!!
Yes this would be my 1st choice, do it now,

My favorite teams
  1. Chicago White Sox
  1. Chicago Bulls
  1. Chicago Bears
Looking forward to the Poles has completed interviews with Eberflus and Quinn tweet from the Bears.

And a re-mergence of Brian Flores….the best available HC candidate. A young Mike Tomlin.

Trying to look on the bright side if Quinn is hired today he has a head start in assembling his staff. I guess he has a staff ready to go anyways but you never know. A strong staff is obviously extremely important.
