Thought 5. On the Coaching Staff
A point on each of the three major coaches on this staff.
- Agree wholeheartedly with Adam Jahns’ belief that it is impossible to come to a conclusion on John Fox due to the number of injuries this roster has sustained. Has he been good in-game? I laid out my rationale from moving on from Fox just a week ago. But there won’t be serious pressure on Fox until he’s playing with a somewhat-full roster or possibly until September, 2017.
- Dowell Loggains found his rhythm as a play caller after the Dallas game but much of that has to do with improvement along the offensive line allowing the run game to thrive. Loggains had his starting QB for six quarters against two solid defenses and then made Brian Hoyer look like the second coming of Chad Pennington. I mean, Loggains himself can’t throw the ball to Alshon Jeffery when he’s wide open in the end zone.
- Vic Fangio is a damn good football coach. And the Bears are building a bully defense.
Thought 6. On the Young Talent & Rebuilding
I see the young talent. I understand the arrows are pointing up at positions across the field. But before we talk about this as a rebuild I have to ask one question…
Who is the quarterback in 2017? Until we have an answer to that question, it is impossible to gauge the status of the organization.
