All factsMatt Nagy was the hottest prospect on the market when the Bears hired him. Pace took him from Chris Ballard. Reich was Ballard’s third choice.
Dave Wannstedt was the hottest coach on the market when the Bears hired him.
Neither of the “ hot prospects” worked out but the Bears landed them. It’s ludicrous to suggest the Bears can’t land Brian Daboll if they want him. It’s the founding NFL franchise, with a rabid fan base located in a world class city.
The facilities in Lake Forest (while not quite up to the Cowboys’ standards) are fantastic.
Plus, the Bears aren’t cheap. That’s ancient history.
