He had one year defensive coordinator with the Ravens where they finished third in defense with Ray Lewis Ed Reed Terrell suggs and then he went to the the colts and he never really had much town to work with on defense now he's token over a defense that is almost sure to regress to the mean just because they had a sky a high turnover rate loss very few games to injury last year and cannot and fifteen percent of drives with an interception like they did last year especially especially That defense every week to make up for their offense. I felt like an if you're if you're in the situation Pagano. You're going to get blamed from their earliest part of the season. It doesn't go well. Why would I want to take over some for someone who floundered before me you come in and you look on the other hand when you have a chance to work with Cleo Max Akiem Hicks Roquan Smith Dan Danny I mean they're absolutely loaded Jackson Kyle? They are loaded and yet. I think it's a tough spot to go to for for Pagano. Dan Pompei wrote a good article at this week on the athletic about the bears just did the teams that return all their starters and the expectations of their sometimes. Those are the ones I'm worried about. There's there's no longer like the COMP. There's no competition that all the starting back they were Kinda hungry and trying to prove who've everything I think Nagy did such an amazing job. Can He create that many plays again but defensively. It's just proven statistically that is tough to stay that dominance stay. Hey that Hungary on paper though they are the best. I don't think like you need to try to come up with some hot. Take that there's some other team. They are the best on paper. I'm interested in your number number of number four on your list and again Chris Wesseling Rhoda Banger five new coaches with maker big potential so the Falcons we all know what happened Kyle Shanahan new coaches coaches okay presided over offense that was historically great <hes> in the two thousand sixteen season <hes> in Atlanta when they went to the superbowl nearly won the damn thing before collapsing <hes> he he leaves gets the GIG and San Francisco head coach job so Steve Sarkisian comes in and he never was able to match it he he was never able to match the magic even though they did score points just wasn't special so what do they do west. They bring back guys that were familiar to Matt Ryan and Company Company before that amazing two thousand sixteen season which is almost to say. I don't know from a perspective and outside perspective. Maybe we'll never capture lightning in the bottle like we it didn't twenty sixteen but we liked what we were before. Kyle Shanahan got there. We didn't like the Sarkisian version of us. Let's try. It's as you wrote. Go back to the future I four years Matt Ryan's Careers Coordinator was Mike Malarkey next three years as coordinator was Dirk Cutter Falcons hire both of them this year one to coordinate the passing game the other coordinate the running game and Dan Quinn cited continuity. Basically they want to run the system. Matt Ryan's been running while he's been a top five or six quarterback the last three or four years rather than going back to what they're cutter was doing <hes> <hes> and dirk cutters.

"And Ryan, right. You get it. Ladies and gentlemen, joining us now is a man who's been a head coach for the Buffalo Bills. He's been a head coach for the New York Jets. He's been a defensive coordinator all around the world. He's a legend. He's an ESPN personality. He's a guy that I enjoy immensely and Kelly to chat to ladies and gentlemen, Rex Ryan. Can I like to sit up here? You got a little heat going. Atlanta's this cold reason, Rex I'll tell you what we had no heat yesterday up here while we're setting us up for the first time code is ball's did not expect it in Atlanta. There's zero southern hospitality from other nature move forward. I have a question for you. What is your football philosophy? Every time. I hear you talk about football ESPN in all your interviews. It's like it's a game. That's physical. But a lot of fucking fun. I believe is what you try to pitch basically pretty much in. It's funny because I was reading the other day a guy that worked was a secondary. Coach for me. Just got the bears Stevens, Gordon job Chuck Pagano. And he said, it's my guy, you know, kill philosophy. Dude. You flat stole. That's exactly right in. But that that's kind of it because you know, that kiss philosophy that that was for somebody else. But to me, it's the, you know, but that that's really what it is in and get after it enjoy it, and yeah, it is it's a fiscal brand of football. You know, I grew up. My dad always said that a big hit with would change momentum of a game in anything and in his truth. Whether you're punters running down the field smashing, so. Know like, but it's it's the truth. Like, it's and I think that's the way the game still played. And I know look there's a lot of different rules. All that stuff. You can't, you know, take somebody's head off anymore, but you can still be fiscal. And and I think for the most part the most physical team went are you trying to get back into coaching. There's been a lot of rumors that you're getting back out top to Chuck last week. Right. I was very lucky to play for Chuck watch them, go through came as just an incredible human. I think he looks up to you a lot too. So it's he's a great guy. But talking to him he said he knew like a week out of coaching that he wanted to get back into it after he left the colts. It was like a week where him and Tina they're getting a little antsy. He was around the wife too much. She was getting sick of it. He said I need to get back with now. He's with the bears. Are you kind of feel that same way, whereas the helping you a little bit? No, it helps me a little bit. I have a son that's coaching with the chargers. So I get my fix that way. My brother just got back in with the Redskins. So that helps but there's no scoreboard and in one I do right now. And it's tough. When you've been competing all your life. And you know, thirty years I spent as a coach so yeah, you definitely miss the locker room. You miss, you know, the competition in you know, so that. Yeah. I I definitely miss it. And I was tempted to come back in. But for whatever reason nobody called me. Know what it is man. That was what's so funny? Like, I get a lot of them. I mean had one about college or, you know, some always he's interested. He's going, you know, he wants a job at Miami. I'm like what? Now, take the doll. I want to go to the hurricanes Luis and Ed Reed. Yeah. You know? So to me, I got a pretty good gig right here do well. By the way, I feel like whenever you're doing your press conferences as you kind of. I mean, you teabag the entire league when you came in you became the instantly. The most undertaking human in the NFL, you became a face almost the NFL for most must see these jerks fans. TV though, anytime you got in front of a microphone, so I imagine ESPN's very excited to have you have you felt comfortable in it. Have you had is there a learning curve to being a TV guy? Like there was a learning curve. Like when I first went in there. My gosh, I never want to do it..

"Remains to be seen. But good first impression today at house holiday. I agree with you look at one of the positives from last year from a zoom out and look at their structure was the first time head coach who specialty is offense and he's wants to develop this very close relationship with the young quarterback. His time is going to be consumed by doing the offense of part of the work here. How great is it to have this accomplish defensive coordinator, you can basically just decided to give all control the defense to that guy. I think you have a similar situation with Chuck Pagano. Is you had with Vic Fangio, so the segue away from Vick who's fantastic had his job to Chuck Pagano? Who's also very good at his job. I mean, I'm not going to suggest to it's completely seamless. But it's it's about as seamless as it could be a lot of people say, well, how good was defense in in Indy. Visit along time defensive assistant coach or coordinator in Baltimore longtime defensive backs coach sort of reminds me of the rod mirror. Nellie dynamic. Now. Eat a longer run as head coach than Rodman Manelli dead in Detroit when he had that awful team. But look rod merely Nellie wasn't degrade head coach. And he's been a really good defensive coordinator coach for the bears in the now the Cowboys for long run is nice higher for them really doing. I think they again, I don't know that it will be a one hundred percents seamless. There will be expectations. The cupboard is full. There are great players on that side of the football expectations are there. But boy, it felt it felt smooth feels like a smooth transition before we get to JD I have two questions free on the George mccaskey interview. He was just inside our first mid West Bank studio. Do you believe again? Again, like, even though he said look Ryan pace, and and more specifically Matt Nagy just explained about a personal call with cream on a relationship that they've had. But again like no door was closed in this. Do you agree with that? Yeah. I think that as time as it was the NFL and other entities are dealing with this very difficult concept. I think people's opinions evolve as well. I thought what we heard from? Theo Epstein was very revealing when we talked to him last Friday, which you mentioned about the. Being the event at a safe place up north that the bears are very involved both hands on and financially. Yes. And the concept of second choices in every situation has to be looked at individually and a desire to want to become a better person and sincere contrition, and when you factor that all in. I don't think I guess the point of Meghan is is I don't think that the bears have my reputation was they don't have a hard and fast rule. No. If you we're not a if you have a domestic violence issue in your past, however, big or small, it is we just don't have a policy. We don't have a set policy. I guess that was my interpretation. We don't have a zero tolerance policy. Correct. Which would be a set policy. Yes. That will look at all of these situations. Individually to me, again, my preference, not telling you, you should feel or anyone else should feel. That's the that's the. Avenue that I go down as well that you look at all these things individually, you talked to all of the experts and you deal with everything in an individual basis. And if the experts say there's contrition this person has gone through the process of trying to become a better person. And we we we recommend that you give him a second chance. Then I'm gonna lead I'm gonna let those people lead the way not me, you know, so. You know, I think the I think the bears mind transportation is is the bears would be open to this situation based on how would transpire and really quick as one listener put at George basically pooh-poohed the overtime thing and the flag being review. -able? Do you believe hearing that from one of thirty two owners that more owners will have his sort of take no rule will be chain? I think he will you saw the co-. The catch rule was took forever to change. My guess is the majority of them feel the same way. Well, how are we really going to be able to do to Kate this? How are we going to be able to do this subjectively and smoothly? And my guess is is also the the overtime. My guess is. They're not going to be a change in on either front with these particular items that I will say, you know, going back on what you ask. I thought it was re revealing that look they don't have a hard and fast rule. Dealing with Kareem hunt or anybody else in the domestic violence front to to be continued. This story is gonna play out in may play out right here in Chicago. Let's get to JD right now covered. The Chuck Pagano press conference..
Ex-Steelers OC Bruce Arians says Antonio Brown isn't same player Pittsburgh drafted
"Of Antonio Brown. And he was the offense coordinator at one point in time before leaving Pittsburgh. And then joining the staff of Chuck Pagano in Indianapolis, and then becoming the colts interim coach as he battled cancer Picado dead and successfully thanked out and it became the Arizona Cardinals head coach. And now as the town. Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach. And that is Bruce Arians who said that he would not be interested in in Antonio Brown that he's too much of a diva. Antonio Brown is is not the same player. That the Pittsburgh Steelers drafted not physically we're talking about. Now. We're talking about everything else that comes along with Antonio Brown. Besides his ability to help you out and special teams and catch the football as an NFL wide receiver. Yeah. You know, Arians, basically said he's heard a lot of stories about as recent how he is speaking of Antonio Brown. And he said he plays as hot as anybody on Sunday. He practice really hard to. But you know, he's he's basically said as a paraphrasing. He's got him. He totally Brown's gotta make better decisions off the field as far as his punctuality and stuff like being being on time and whatnot. That's we said, so it's pretty interesting new head coach, you know, you've been in the broadcast booth for a year your new head coach of the box. This guy's a Steeler kinda. And I honestly coached them. It's you know, it's interesting to hear him say that about him. So it doesn't sound like Brown be going to Tampa Bay anytime soon. No. It doesn't sound like that. And that's the concern. I mean, you know, you can listen to every former NFL player, whether it be Jerry Rice and others say that he wants to be a San Francisco forty nine or that's great. I may it's great. And I do we both are in agreement TASR that Antonio Brown's gonna get traded this off season by the Pittsburgh Steelers. OB fascinating the team that he does go to am. I telling you that he's a losing player. Antonio Brown can help you in football games. But I will say that there's a lot of headaches now Brown and distractions. Yeah. Great point that Antonio Brown brings to the table that I don't know if there's a lot of NFL head coaches that are going to go out and look to embrace it. I really do. And that's the issue. I have with Brown is I don't want to deal with the nonsense. I really don't as Aaron said, you know, there's the little things that he doesn't do shop to shop to practice on time show up to meetings on time. You know, you're asked to run a hot return a walk-through run the run the hot read. What are you? What are you doing here? I mean, come on. Exactly nervous. I understand what you thought. I was going. I remember where it was funny. I mean, honestly, I it's not that difficult to it's not that difficult for Antonio Brown to handle his responsibilities. Yeah. I completely agree. I've never heard that before I was refunded. Agree with you to moves by. Yeah. Yeah. It was great. Yeah. Man. You know, I think you're going to get some coaches that are that will some teams that will wanna take that chance because how talented these days. We've all in all careers separately. You and I coming up in in all world separately. Right. I'll separate worlds. I'm sure you've come across the state me. All you've heard of guys that you may be going to do business. What guys or girls that you're going to do business? What that you've heard a lot of negativity about. And what's the first thing you said yourself? Well, I okay. This person's talented. I'm going to judge them for once. I get to know them. You give them that. You know what? I mean. I, you know, my wife always taught my son that you might hear things about someone judge them. I from how you judge them. Okay. Take defamation here. But a lot of times it could be hearsay on the advice. It is with this guy here. It's been a like him himself. He's combustible. He's tweeting stuff. Meaning it's Brown. He's been doing a lot of stuff. He's creating he's adding a ton of gasoline to these little fires that war with the Steelers in Hammond Tomlin. So if you're another coach, my point is that I do think some of the coaches or a coach will say, okay. This guy's really talented. He's a superstar. He's going to put as we going to put people to seats in the building. Okay. And and these stadiums role big he's a draw. He's going to draw people. He's a star. I so we've heard all this bad stuff about them. Just like Erin said, I've heard the stories a younger coach hypothetically might say. Well, I wanna to take that chance. I've heard the stories too. But I'm going to judge Antonio foot for what what I see we're going to take a chance on him. And that's what then you gotta hope for the best because he's gonna end up somewhere. Most you know, he's just too damn. And that's a fair way to fair way to look at it by also think that if you're having issues with a player friendly coach, Mike Tomlin, see, I I think there are guys that can't work and play for Bill Belichick. I think there are guys that can't work and play for other disciplinarians like a go back a couple years go back years ago. Bill Parcells right there. There are guys it just it just doesn't work. Now, if you can't play for a guy like Mike Tomlin, who's bent over backwards to placate you over the course of your career as you've changed with the success as your personality is changed with the money. All of that is well deserved because it's earned. I'm not talking about his personality all the money that comes his way. Tasr? I also have to look at that. Same of you have issues with Mike Tomlin, what the hell are you gonna do here? Yeah. Yeah. I mean, Mike cobblers a really is he's apprentice coach player friendly code. But there will he will be playing in the National Football League next year, you'll be making seventeen eighteen million dollars a year. God bless, but there's there's a lot. There are other guys as Bruce Arians said, I think there are a number coaches to say, I don't want daddy. Deal with that. I don't want that toxic person in your locker room. That's what you don't want. You know, you don't want that. Like, I'm a bills fan as you guys know, and I I love all young quarterback. And if we gotta Antonio Brown. I think that'd be amazing. Be awesome. But I would worry that he would like inadvertently mess. What the Josh out? I would worry about that. And I think that's a fair fair concern. But I think that a lot is coaches will judge him. For what they think and and meet with him Suez heads out, and let's just I just play a little bit on Antonio Brown side. He's been with the same organization right out of college. Right. So seven eight years, whatever it is sometimes difficult to paint. Sometimes you you'll be in better behavior. When rental the people a change of change of environment sometimes could help, and maybe that's what he needs, and maybe things will change. And may maybe

"For. There you go. There's Matt Nagy about Chuck Pagano, the new defensive coordinator who people rave about. Yeah. No. He had a lot of success is defensive backs. Coach Baltimore he was there. Oh DC for one year. And they were very very good as players who have played for him rave about him. I I mean, how could you are you with this hire more than a solid hires? A former head coach in league Dalton bears official tweeted me, and he said why are you trying to stir stuff up that ain't there because they said Pagano is more aggressive now. There was some kind of an issue with Fangio stop it. I'm not telling you. There was any issue with Fangio. I'm just my belief is my from watching the bears play fourth quarter defense knowing what Vic Fangio's blitzing style is the way Nagy raved about Pagano in the release. And today is that they would like to ratchet it up a little bit more. That's by believe, I'm not stirring, anything up. Maybe I'm wrong. I'll ask GED and I'll ask Dan Wieder about that. But Vic Fangio the book on him has always been as a defensive coordinator, one of the least blitzing DC's in the National Football League. Yeah. I got home what forty times this year? They got got to the quarterback. I think they tied for third or fourth and sacks this year. They were obviously the best in the league taking the ball away. I didn't think that they had to blitz quite a bit. And remember when you don't blitz you can drop an extra player into coverage at times. So some years you blitz more than others. But yeah, I think that the book has always been that Vic is more conservative with his approach than say someone like Pagano. Let me play the Cody parkey stuff because I think a lot of people thought that we talked on Friday. I thought they would come in and they wouldn't to drag Cody parkey through the mud the day. Would they would just let their actions do the talking when they released them? We all believe that they're not bringing Cody parkey back. But when we got word that the press conference was Monday, I thought pace in Nagy would both come out and just say, look we're gonna handle the personnel decisions. When the new league year starts, and there's a lot to evaluate. We're a week away from when we were just eliminated. So it's all very fresh to us. And I thought they want to touch the this stuff from the today show, but they made it known. Cody parkey and what they thought about him. Here's Matt Nagy. I found.

"One two three three two three seven seven six. Dan, doc. It's my guy from Indianapolis. Former Indiana Hoosier killing it in India and also all over the college basketball world joins me now because Chuck Pagano is now the bears defensive coordinator former colts head coach, Danny boy what's going on kit. Apple app. You caught me in the middle of a workout listening to a oh little no vacillating by my man, I cube and I'm in good shape. I'm brothers role. Thanks nice. Love it. So Chuck Pagano is our guy. Should we be fired up? I mean, I hate to say it, but great guy number number one all time. Great guy, never really built a defense your cap, and quite frankly that was very disappointing because he came with the defensive background. He came with as a guy that you know, with the ravens was a defensive guy never built it here. Very conservative. I don't think his blitz rates are anything special. I think that with the talent that they have very it'll be a good defense. No matter who's there, but four cliches I'll be interested a year from now what people think you're going to hear chopping wood building the monster iron sharpens iron. And every silly coaching increase say the pig is more invested all this kind of silly stuff. Biggest never built a defense here. He he just never did. And he went through coordinator's three four defense kind of basic always talked about when they got a new coordinator with him together. They were gonna put this blitzing together and be aggressive and usually they were a little bit preseason. And then it all went away. No. I mean, I not just I like Chuck a lot Chuck was great. But if you're gonna if I'm gonna come on your show, I gotta be honest and the defensive schemes we're called high school by guys a coach longtime in the NFL that a friend of mine, and it was disappointing. Okay. When he is that on him. Or is that on the GM that you had at the time who wasn't bringing in the talent. Or was he given talent and did a poor job with it. Well, I think it's both. I don't think there's any question. But here's the one thing that again, people that I trust have always said tap, the nobody got better. And it was amazing this year. We've talked about all the time with every single person around here that had coached with the colts over the years. And you know, how guys got better this year? This the seer on the corner. Kenny more all that kind of stuff. But we got better under Chuck. I'm not saying it's all on Chuck look he's the head coach he's not defensive coordinator. And he wasn't the GM. And you can certainly the narrative is correction didn't bring him any talent. And that's whether that's true or not who knows. But I do know. This guy's just did not get better. And there was nothing. Interesting. You know, but, but let's be honest. You got talent right there. I mean, you got you got you got Wilbur Marshall one two and three. I mean, you got guys. Yep. So you know, I'm sure it'll be a good defense. But I'm just telling you history. I'm just giving you the history here. And I as I say. Said I really really liked Chuck if you don't like, Chuck that's on you. But it was disappointing. Defensively. It really was the reason that the colts have turn this thing around as quickly as they did is why. Well, I think Andrew lucked being back, and I think to really good draft choices change the interior culture. Like Chuck had no accountability. And Chuck in your, you know, it goes cab. You coats, things always come out after the fact I like playing for. But then all of a sudden it's like where it's great to have accountability in the locker room. It's great that we hit in preseason. But the but the GM here Chris Ballard brought in two guys quitting Nelson. Who is first team? All pro apparently, you know as a guard at six picking a draft people criticize them in various Leonard who probably be the defensive rookie of the year. Copy. They changed the cut the culture to toughness, and again, I go back to pick out. That's where people were most disappointed. There wasn't really a toughness element tackling was back. 'cause apparently, you know Chuck didn't wanna hitting the preseason. He didn't wanna hit it hardly ever. He was really coddling up the players, and again cap, you know, this when you coach once a guy leaves man everybody then wants to talk, right? So now, all of a sudden you here man, so nice that we worked on our technique. It's so nice. If this year we worked on tackling, blah, blah, blah, blah. And that was kind of an indictment on shock, quite frankly. And whoever he brought in as defensive coordinator with them because I think he went through three. In looking at your colts team. I know they started off slow but boil boy today get rolling then ran into a buzzsaw the other day looking back at Saturday's game. Are you Dan dockage surprised it went down like that? Or now, they ran out of gas in DC ran up against a really good team. No, I'm surprised, and I'm gonna say this on my show coming up to twenty twenty five minutes, my listeners or a lot of my listeners were right. They were worried about a performance like we had in the middle of the run against Jacksonville where they lost six to nothing where press coverage happy couldn't get away from press. Coverage quick offer excuse me defensive front. Are we saw this kid Ford whip breaking Smith for a sack we saw the same thing with the Jack? I thought they were beyond re cap. I really did. I I'm not gonna lie. I watched him play. I watch your speed of core. I watch the athletes athleticism and Lux connection with t y Hilton and others. And I thought you know, what? Make it be. But they're not going to have a bad performance. They had a terrible performance. They had a performance that is reminiscent of back when they were one in five or or the one loss they had in the streets happy and that was against the Jaguars. It was bad. And it surprised me to no end. It really really did. I thought they would be much better Mahomes might beach because Mahomes, damn good. But I think he would beat you that easy. And I didn't think the cultural go down. There was so many mistakes. Yeah. I I watched that game thought. Wow. And they just they had their way with them. They were never ever out of control that surprise me. Yeah. And know how it goes last week. Playoff game. I first possession. Third and twelve TY helps makes a great over the shoulder. Catch completely shuts up the Texans fan. I mean, the place is going nuts. All right. I play this game third and three pass ez pass over the middle. Eric Hebron, drops it. Now, the place is going nuts. And you know, how that goes cap. I mean, it's not always the play at the end of the game that be it's the play that ignite things, and I just a simple play like that two weeks ago. Really went a long way to helping the colts get off to a great start and a bad play like that yesterday. And then you got Terry missing the shortest kick of his career. You gotta miss an extra point. You've got offensive line that every time something went well are they held it was a complete meltdown. And I'm giving you the colts side of it from the other side of it. I if I was Kansas City. I just say we were simply a better football team that beat a team that wasn't good. Now. What's the next step? They've got to take because I look at our. Bears Trubisky has to take the next step. He had a really good, you know, back half of his season. I thought he really showed a lot of progress. But he's got to take the next step. What are the colts have to do? You. Don't care. They have cap space. They're going to have a over one hundred million. We have good young talent. But. Just take the bears defense. How many playmakers run up bears defense? The answer is a fun trade ally colts off. Yeah. Colts offense, if we don't have enough playmakers, and they don't have enough in the defensive back from Lee Hooker went out. And this is one thing about it was so funny when me cooker was drafted by the colts with dollars like the first draft. Cookers on the phone with the Gano. Donald like, you're going to be the next day. I've read your the neck and Ballard literally with media. They're just relax. Let's let's just this is relaxed here. He's good football player. But relax. Anyway, but cooker was out colts defensive backfield. Help coach need another playmaker or two on the offensive side because you know, this cab got a great quarterback which everybody tells me luck is you gotta surround them with weapons and T Y Hilton was banged up. The other guys are okay. But you gotta give them weapons. You gotta give them a bunch of guys Brown. I am of the belief that in the NFL you don't win with choirboys. Right. Tonio brown. Bring wavy on bell at one of the big offensive lineman. Smashing into miles when they get out of hand. And let's go. Yeah. You don't win voice, man. That's an asset sport play by absolute animals. I mean, wow. Cap. It's a few years ago. Willis mcgahee. He was on the market. And you know, we're sitting here on my show. Got Rickman Terry longtime NFL coach say go get mcgahey people. Like, no, he's not a nice guy. He parts the guy whatever I think it was McCain your nose blunt blunt, Gary. Oh, yeah. The girl blood. So next thing, you know, the blood is playing against the colts in the AFC championship game running for like seven thousand yards and knocking everybody down. Right. And we're like well. Yeah. Go get some talent. I'm all for everything. I'm you know, what it's so much fun as you well know, and I'm embarrassed fan. So I grew like hell for them. And and the calls so much fun anymore in the NFL. When you're cities team is good. Go get guys that are good man as long as they're not deviant criminals. Go get the good players. Yeah. I completely agree with you, the deviant criminals, that's a different story. But you're right. But it's funny. Lou Pinella grabbed me one day after he'd been here a little bit. And we're at a golf charity golf event here. He comes. He's like, hey, I gotta tell you something. You know, what the problem is here? You people wanna like your athletes as people how about getting a couple of B's all I care about is winning. To say this. I used to say there's and and I I I used to say I don't care if Charles Manson play shortstop for the cubs. I just want him to win right? Because when I was a kid they never won. It was like, you know, by first play-off experience with the cubs was nineteen eighty four. You know, what I mean like damn one one time. Can you win something look we don't want. You don't want deviants. You don't want criminals. You don't want abusive. I get I'm totally get on that. But let's talk. Let's go back to, you know, Brown's a pain in the ass. Okay. What's great wide receiver isn't a pain in the ass Levy on bell painting. Yeah. Okay. Which you know, I guess most running backs aren't maybe he he he overstayed his welcome. Maybe both overstaying their welcome. I don't know. But they're gonna and that's when that bell rings on Sunday. They seem pretty good to me man, you like cabinet manure uniform, eight lasting are you surprised by the cubs lack of activity that it was moving heaven and earth to get Daniel discount. So. I'm not only surprised I'm disappointed like, I'm not big on Machado. But I wouldn't mind seeing Harper out here. I mean what you know. Yeah. I am because you cap again, I go back to when I was a kid. It always seemed like the cubs were small market team. And then all of a sudden here comes steel, and we're acting like a big market team. Which I like, right? I always said the guy who understood what he had more than anybody in the world was George Steinbrenner, George Steinbrenner understood where the freaking Yankees, and we're gonna win and we're gonna do whatever the hell it takes to win. And I was kinda hoping that that might be the cubs approach here. Maybe they like what they have. I'm guessing until we trust. But yeah, I wouldn't mind seeing I don't know. Maybe a little Bryce Harper and right. No, look good. Maybe they'll surprise us. And maybe at Jeff passages said to be maybe THEO has just slow played everybody had just said, let me ask you would that surprise you. Yes. Me too. I'd be shocking to I'd be shocked. There's a way to slow play one thing. And to look you in the eye basically lie to your face. I don't believe it you and I both love Jimmy Boylan giving more money give Jimmy Boylan more contract. Give Jimmy Boylan more money. You know, it's funny. Funny that you said that because that's my next topic. Because look if Dan dockets moves some working, whatever your sift is to morning drive. You're going to get paid more money. That's just the way it's done. He was the assistant coach now he's the head coach he's going to get more money, and it's not so much money that they can't move on from if they want the guys out there. And if they're gonna make in the head coach that pay the man. Cathy, I got doubled my salary when I became interim, head coaches, Indiana for seven games, and and I got a whole 'nother year on it. I should ask for three more years. But you know, what? Good. Hey, look, somebody gotta sit in there and take the tanking or whatever it is they're doing so might as well be Jimmy be paid a man to give. Hey, like KGB said give the man his mind. Hey that man his money, exactly. Hey, man, have a good show today. My brother. Thanks for having me here. The best see there. You got my guy. Dan, dockage love him. Anyway, he's right. And we can get into the Jimmy Boylan stuff. But I do wanna play we promised. We'd play it snoop Dogg quiz at the LA kings game the other day, it was so great. I heard him doing hockey. And I immediately sent The Danny and Chris he was already they're already on it. Danny already knew about it. It's gone viral. Now, this is snoop Dogg in the booth at the LA kings game the other night..
"chuck pagano" Discussed on ESPN Chicago 1000 - WMVP
"I'm not sure if the bears were playing in the afternoon, or whatever, but I flipped over and saw the saints were playing the eagles, and it was forty one to seven and drew Brees had a fourth down was dropping back to throw to Alvin Kamara. And they said what the hell is going on. And they scored a touchdown and was forty eight to seven was the final these two teams meet again, what do you expect from this one? Do you expect the the eagles to remember what happened there and the last couple of weeks the saints offense seemed to struggle? Do you expect those struggles that continue I don't for them? I don't expect it to look like that for whatever reason this eagles teams omitted the bring in they bring in the reliever Nick foles things change for them around the postseason, but I expected to be closer. Clearly, you heard the comments from Jason Peters and some others. They were very cognizant. Of what was happening or what they thought was going on there with the saints running up the score. But no, I expect the saints offense to home I expect the saints defense to be the difference. And I expect alva- Kamara Mark Ingram to be the mitigating factor when it comes to how you slow down. There's eagles pass rush that has really been the catalyst for this entire run. Obviously, Nick foles has been sensational story back to back postseason, even if it ends now, it's still unbelievable. What this guy has managed to do when he's gotten run at the end of the season. But I look at Fletcher Cox, I look at Chris long. I look at the rest of that defense, and especially the defensive line that's been able to step up to the plate with the secretary has been battered and beaten for the entire season. We know they're on sin bodies back on that end of the field. But that defensive line has been so dominant, especially on the interior where we go pass rushers or at such a premium right now, can you get that on the other side from the saints who when healthy have been one of the better off at the live in the NFL? There's been a lot of change up. On that line for health reasons the times, but when they've got their crew out there I trust that group about as much as any of the NFL. Okay. One last thing we would be remiss if we did not ask you Chuck Pagano comes in is the defensive coordinator, replacing Vic Fangio, what are your initial thoughts? I'm not forgotten coming here in Chicago. Listen, if I'm Chuck Pagano. I am happy. You know, what you handed that guy every tool that you could ever want as a defensive coach we obviously remember his time in Indianapolis. And I think they're good solid coach. But this is one of those situations where you come in. And and certainly Chuck Gano is established enough as a coach he's gonna come in. And he's gonna run things his way we also don't screw too much up like this unit will that turn the ball over at this rate again next year, you cannot count on that as a sure-fire thing. But what you can't count on every level. You've got young players who are either in that first contract or that you've locked up for a little while. And you've got such a strong foundation coming back, and you wanna make sure again that continuity is important don't give these guys too much to think about don't give you guys too much change that ultimately slows them down that keeps them from being the best version of themselves. So Chuck Pagano should be doing cartwheels somewhere. Getting the news that he has the privilege of coaching the bears defense, Mike, we really appreciate jumping you leave Chicago. After a couple of beers, a finding. Experience and your hamstrings are intact. Exactly, no ice hub trips for me, guys. All calling it a win. There you go. Thanks a lot will be listening tomorrow. Thanks awesome. Thanks, Mike Golic junior a nice enough to jump on. And he'll he'll get he'll probably get torched a little bit tomorrow. I mean, look he gave a good good. The worst thing while his dad. Someone would have made it if like ten people would have made it they probably would have been like, dude, right? What what are you doing since? Everybody men's everybody missed and given the elements. I thought he did a good job talking with Todd towards the end the president at goose island, and we're like, so what are you going to do next year? And I suggested we'll every time. A Chicago team loses to just replicate what it is. So if if the bulls lose on a last second three you have to have people come take a three point shot. Okay. The cubs lose by not turning a double play. You have to have people. Come and try to turn a double play. And whatever it is. You just have to somehow keep this going because they've gotten the momentum. You have to build off the momentum of this somehow. We'll just think if they would have had this at the start of the season they would have had people after the game one trying to catch a pass thrown after Kyle fuller dropping interceptions back. Yeah. Hey counselors brother plays for one of the teams last night. Right. Kendall. Kendall fuller. Am I chiefs? I believe. Okay. It was funny because they were they they do the little thing. And they all say their names and everything like that. I looked at it looked. He looked exactly like Yahoo. Yeah. Right. That's why that's why I thought it was him. And it's nice that one of them. Just imagine the nice family. He got he got Bolton both of them in the playoffs. And I know there's another brother to there that can get in played in the very cool. Always fascinating to me. Because it's like if you ever read outliers by Malcolm while like he talks about a like like, how do you get that? Right. Like how do all hockey players? Great hockey players. Come from like one name. Yeah. Part of Canada. Right. It's it's very unique. How that stuff works? It's clearly based on bloodlines, right? Like, how do you get you manning Peyton Manning after Archie manning? Cooper played college football. Okay. Well, why do you have to be that guy? Cooper. How do you think those thanksgiving dinners go it's they're expensive? And he's he's glad that they're treating did you would have paid manning yesterday by the sun. Yeah. Some was there for the for the game. Yeah. His son went down in Rams gear. Right. Yeah. He wore wisely girly in the first half and Donald the second half. He brought to Jersey's change. So you know, that was nice. This is a stat. And I know this is just a guy on Twitter posted it. Trubisky versus Mahomes first playoff game. God this guy. Some guy tweeted me the link. Like the the game ended troopers were calm. I know how to end this. Okay. Read the final scores of both games knows moving on sixteen. Fifteen eagles and thirty thirteen colts. Mahomes was sacked four times at eighty five point two quarterback passer rating if the bears had Patrick Mahomes, they would've seen his passes yesterday. A couple more. One where there was a guy standing in front of him. And he threw it around. It was unbelievable. What's the movie where they curve the bullets when they shoot they? They throw the arm and then they the bullet like curves actress. Sure. What does that move? It was like really cool time natural curve baseball yesterday. It's a baseball movie that old people always. Scott. What's called wanted? Yeah. Patrick Mahomes was. The alternate. The Rick and Morty alternate time line the alternate universe. The bears have Patrick Mahomes, and they won the playoff game. That's what the line suggests. Can we do this? We've got a couple of minutes. Were yesterday that he was hurt. His came down on the helmet of the other guys. Okay. Can we do this for a second? Yeah. Go ahead. All the Trubisky troopers now, listen he was good this year. I agree. He was good. He was if he was better in the playoff game. They probably wouldn't that playoff game. We can get into that. If y'all want to do that. But can we also get to this every person who will feels the need to defend Mitch Trubisky toll until the end of time you ever notice that all they can do is quote, you stats and some of the stats that they quote aren't even relevant. Like, no one's ever saying. Did you see this? I think this. I think that it's always well if you look at this stat he's ranked twelfth in QBR, and he must be the best of all time. And I don't know the the brilliance to sports is that we take the stats. We take our eyeballs we match them together if it matches and they overlap together, and it looks right. Then we say, yeah. That guy's probably pretty good. Not at all times. The eyeball test doesn't match with Mitch. Bisky? And that's where the questions lie. We get it. He has a good completion percent. We get his QBR was fantastic. We understand that the offense to pop the points that they need who gets blamed for that. It's not Trubisky apparently because he has this QBR that I'm unaware of. So like when you want to have the conversation take both put them together. That's why Mahomes is so crazy is because the eyeball test tells us he's probably elite, and he's probably something we've never seen before. And the numbers back it up. Do you think they're comparing if you're gonna compare quarterbacks comparing Trubisky to Gough is better than comparing him to Mahomes absolutely one yesterday when he didn't perform that? Well into a lot of great stuff through a couple of passes over the middle and completions which Mitch is done in the past. Sure, you know, he didn't do anything special yesterday. I didn't think we didn't. Then where some numbers in the sun times. This probably comes to your your point Trubisky. This year improved in every major statistical category from his rookie year. Would you would expect them to do different? Actually throws the ball. Right. And I'm also waiting for the kicker that every every Trubisky supporter has to bring out that's the greatest embarrassed history. Yeah. I don't have that one. But he he didn't draw four games, but three of them could have been. But you know, what they weren't? You can't say, hey, this guy through six almost interceptions. He has the highest what it's called possible turnover rate. So there was that list came out, I believe two weeks ago from it was a pro football, focus. Okay. Ranked the quarterbacks they did their final quarterback ranking, and he was towards the bottom, and they said it was because of probable turnover rate that means is are those almost interceptions those dropped interceptions, those balls that are overthrown underthrown that could be picked basically he he's been lucky because when you are the leader in that category. It means that the defenses are not taking advantage of the mistakes you're making the top because he's got the third best QBR in the league. No is he at the bottom because he has the most intercept probable intercepted rate. No he's somewhere in the middle. This ties into that. By the way, I really liked pro football, focus when it suits me. But I also remember the pro football focus also has age rename us is the best strong safety strong safety to ever play the game. And that is why Fred you are pro football focus truth because. Yeah. Okay. So by. But they're, but they're metrics. Yeah, it's bad. But also Trubisky is also the worst quarterback in the league. Ninety five point four passer rating sixteenth you tried to buy metal sixteen smack dab in the middle. And that's a good stat..
"chuck pagano" Discussed on WGN Radio
"Four right now thirty at O'Hare thirty at midway twenty eight in floss more thirty along Chicago's lakefront, I'm Bob Kessler in the WGN radio newsroom. And these are the stories that matter on seven twenty WGN you can thank George. I talked to George yesterday. And I said, George can I do the press conference tomorrow and migration sweats. What he calls it. My great business. Should know you can't do that. So he gave me this tide aware. So this ties compliments of George mccaskey. And the Chicago Bears. Congratulations Vic Fangio, I love the story. Sixty years old. Been in the league seemingly forever and finally gets his head as his chance to be a head coach in the NFL going to the Denver Broncos for the bears. But that's awesome for Vic, and you got to appreciate a guy climbing his whole career still looking do it in the sixties and getting's opportunity. That's sweet. Yeah. He he deserves it and he'll be he'll be terrific. So the the bears have now hired Chuck Pagano for coast. Coach had leukemia. Beat it beat it. Leukemia, obviously like cancer, it can come back anytime. Yeah. Chuck strong all of it. And this is the guy that really got a raw deal in Indianapolis. Andrew luck out hurt and the colts got bad. They started losing and begun on. Everybody got fired and he was sought after by a bunch of teams and he chose the bears. I would assume because he likes Matt Nagy? And he thinks he knows that he's going to be coaching defense with a ridiculous amount of talent. Chuck is a guy from my understanding Harry that gets guys to play for him the players love him. Details in being super organized, not necessarily Hispanic. I heard that his light is on from early in the morning till late at night in his office. See that. And that stuff is like what coach is due and they never leave. And they're watching film, and they never go home. They don't see their families. That's kinda stresses me out. Like, you got to have some balance in life. One of my favorite coaches in college basketball, Mark few with Gonzaga. Sure. Incredibly successful program. Oh, yeah. Their rules. Office opens at eight AM. We don't have a game that night closes at six. Go home be with your family. If you want to be here twenty four seven this isn't the job for you. And the rule is make sure half the country mispronounces the name of the town room that to Spokane Spokane Spokane I wish Hogue were here. He'd know how to pronounce it. We're we're we're trying to effort Adam Hoge right now. But while we wait for them. Don's been being patient wants to jump on Cam, Spokane Washington us embarrassed. What's up down? Welcome to WGN. Go ahead. You doing guys? I I want to preface by saying I love the two point conversion, I'm more of a college football guy. I love the bears grew up in Elgin watching the bears. I totally dig the fact that we got a two point conversion in the NFL, however, many years ago. What are we doing using chart before the fourth quarter? If we kicked an extra point after that last touchdown. Maybe we wouldn't be. It'd be tied up at the end of the game. Then we go into a different silo. Okay. Hold on the bears. Go fifteen ten you can go for one. And you could go for two main is that even a discussion. I would have been sixteen ten that seventeen. What do we lose by? Yes. But it's fifteen it's you're talking about you know, the colts went for two because they were trying to extend it out. They what they would've kicked an extra point. I mean it. I don't. Fourth quarter revenue lost by a point. But we don't need a charter for that one down. I mean, I'm I'm not a math major neither you if they had gone if they had right? I mean, if we kicked the extra point we wouldn't sixteen points, the colts would've, they would've kicked the extra point. We lost seventeen. CEO's eagles eagles. Why say cults I'm watching the game. Sorry eagles. It would have been a seventeen sixteen loser. That's gonna make you feel any better. Right. I see a lot of relying on the chart. I still seeing a lot of this before the fourth quarter. It bugs me, here's here's a. Here's what bugged me Thanksgiving Day in the first half going to against the lions. And now, I'm I'm all in on Chuck Nagy. So I'm Manny. Yeah. Me too. Guy forever. But you don't go for two in the first half. They ended up, you know, rolling lions. But you don't you don't go over to their first half dump Rishard the call thanks for checking in. Let's bring a guy Adam Hoge to pitch for the Indian, Mike Hogue. Welcome for. Hey, guys. Yeah. The problem is not that they went for two that made total sense the difference because they would have just done. The eagles have been something different is still a one point difference. The problems that they didn't get the two point conversion got the two point conversion then the eagles are in a position where they either make the decision to go for two which cannot be ruled out to go for the win. Maybe that's something. Doug Peterson would have done on the road there or kicked the extra point to go to overtime now would have created a much different scenario for the eagles. The bears didn't get there's though and and that was the problem there. A couple of guys miss some blocks. It looked like if you go back and watch that two point conversion the run Taylor. Gabriel looks like he's going to get in. And then all of a sudden two guys, Mr. blocks, and he got tackled there at the at the one yard line. So in a lot of people are saying how come you with Gabriel? They're running between the tackles, he's fees five foot eight and one hundred and thirty pounds with the play call no guys make their blocks. It's a two point conversion. Way too, easy and lazy to blame the coach for player for lack of player execution. You got to execute. What the place now if everybody across the board executes, and it still doesn't work. Okay. Well, then maybe you can question the scheme or what's going on there? And there are actually our times we're going to have a bigger discussion about the run the running game this season. We're actually was questioned the scheme because I was seeing guys coming in unblocked worse wasn't necessarily a player's fault. It was like, okay. These the numbers here aren't adding up the bears don't have enough blockers for the amount of defenders that are coming in to make the tackle. And I do think that the bears had made some adjustments schematically. I think Matt Nagy Mike, Nagy, whatever you wanna call. It did make some adjustments throughout the season. And that was part of the reason why the running game improved. Yeah. So so what play the coach? So we don't say anything about Tariq only getting four touches. Yeah. Well, I think that you know, maybe a little bit. You can you could say maybe that's a player that you try to force things into a little bit. But I again, another thing is you gotta give the other team credit. That's that is the hardest thing for fans that do I've come to realize in doing this job for eight years. It is it is so hard for fans to give the other team credit, and I get it because no one wants to do that everyone wants to kind of blame your own team. But the reality is that the that the eagles and Jim Schwartz. Their defense coordinator did Sasha good jobs losing trae Burton on short notice after you practice all week. And they thought he was going to be in there. I think that hurt too. But the reality the reality was the eagles did a really good job of taking to recall an out of the game and the bears offense. Matt Nagy said it from day one. It is designed to get the football to whatever the defense is giving them. And if the eagles are gonna take away to recall when Mitch Trubisky is going to put the ball elsewhere. Whether that's checks at the line of. Scrimmage before the balls even snapped. Or after the ball is snapped finding the open guy. So you can argue that that Nagy should have maybe made some adjustments on his end or don't whatever he could to get number twenty nine involved more. But you also have to give the eagles a lot of credit for for taking him away. Okay. I was not in the locker room afterwards. Now, there's two different stories that I'm hearing one story is that Cody parkey sat there in front of his locker and talk to everybody that wanted to ask them a question. Another story is that he was there for a few minutes, then he ducked out of there. And then he wasn't at Halas hall. The next day couldn't be found which story is closer to being the truth. Well, they're both sort of true. What the first one is. He did sit there and ask questions or answer all the questions that were asked to except for the fact that there were still more questions coming and I forget, which PR Representative. It was for the bears, but someone. Yeah. Outlasts question. And you know, the player always have has the opportunity to say, no, no, I'll keep going and actually Matt Nagy done that a couple of times in his post game press conferences this year say no, no, I'll take all the questions that you guys have. I'm not going to criticize Cody parkey for not doing that. He in my opinion, he answered enough in the post game locker room after the then the PR guy stepped in and said, that's it. And you move on. The problem was is that a lot of people including myself wanted to talk to him the next day. You know, there's there's some more time. He's still the main story. The next day. We're all in there for extra interviews that go on house hall, and he was nowhere to be found. And I think that is something that he probably deserves some criticism for it because it was clearly communicated that a lot of people wanted to talk to him and didn't even see him in the locker room. So they're both kinds of true to answer your question. So what do you think is teammates are feeling with Kim going on the today show? I know that speculation, but I'm guessing that's not going to be incredibly well received in the locker room or or maybe it's just the just a just a nothing thing. But I don't think he's scoring any points. Yes. So I can actually go a little bit further than speculation. 'cause I have actually had some conversations here. Here's what I'll tell you one. Is that this interview was not facilitated by the bears? Right. It was. In fact, my understanding is that originally they reached out to the bears. And the bears said no because they weren't making players available. Anybody right? So. And they weren't necessarily in favor of doing this interview. So my understanding it was conducted through the agent, which is another way to go especially in the off season. What's the players are away from the team that's fair game. But I also believe that Cody park you wanted to do the interview and the bears weren't exactly thrilled about it. So in that standpoint, I think the proper way for me to phrase, this is I don't think Cody parkey did himself any favors by going on the today show Friday. And what I mean by that is it for his job security in Chicago, which I think is already in doubt. I don't think he helped himself unless he wants to get out of Chicago net case, maybe he did. That's what I'm just listening to talk about it. That's what I'm thinking. So he thinks he's getting cut and he wants to present himself to the rest of the world. Maybe maybe. That's one theory that that could be realistic. I'm not really sure. Because again, we haven't had a chance to talk to Cody parkey since Sunday. And don't really know what his intentions are. I do believe that's going to be very hard for him to continue to be the bears kicker. Whether he wants to be the bears kicker or not, I you know, I just know the city too. Well, and I think even in the eyes of the fans that I don't think he did himself any favors by going on the today show as for his teammates. I haven't I haven't had anyone openly criticize him. But I also haven't heard anything like, yeah. I understand why he did that you know, what I mean? So it's. And that's a totally different scenario because you never wanna Basha teammate and guys aren't going to openly do that especially in this locker room. This is a really good locker room fill a lot of really good dudes. That's been an emphasis for Ryan pace. So I but trust me there are guys in that locker room scratching their heads about the interview Friday, just like everyone else is usually when you have such a consensus like this against something. The players the players are thinking the same way to now. Let's look ahead. It kept Pagano is going to be the new defensive coordinator mazal tov. And thank you to be Fangio. Did a great job. What do you think? The bears did great good or indifferent with hiring Pagano. Yeah. I like it. I think that this was going to be an attractive job. Chuck Pagano has credibility that he brings into the room. Now, you can pick apart maybe his defenses in Indianapolis and questioned why they weren't elite. Why they weren't you know, the some of the best in the league, I will say he won a lot of games in Indianapolis as head coach. And when he was the defense coordinator with the ravens in twenty eleven that wasn't elite defense Ryan Grigson the general manager in Indianapolis made a lot of mistakes, which is why he's no longer the general manager there. And why Chris Ballard came in and has done such a good job spectacular into the playoffs. Even though it's not looking too good right now. Against the chiefs. So I like the higher, and I think it ultimately probably came down to him, and Donna tell the bear secondary coach. And I understand why the bears went in this direction as much as I think Donald L could have been done a good job. And I think it would have been nice did maintain the continuity, but God always going to be he's one. He's I think he's obviously trying to get a head coaching job again. Now that could be announced out of this. If he has his great defense next year and does such a good job..

"Denver played a good ballgame credit down getting the win. It's a good football team. Got good players, and we just didn't have enough whatever to make some plays in the second half. Over it in the middle of whatever sound like a head coach to me, have whatever. Chuck Pagano there if you didn't know who that was that clip, obviously a few years old. Yeah. Twenty seventeen. So I thought so not that old. So the those last year. Okay. Yeah. I Chuck Pagano interviewed yesterday with the Denver Broncos. Mike cliffs of. Nine news up in Denver said on Twitter, quote, her Chuck Pagano made strong impression today with Broncos. John Elway led head coach search committee like John Elway wouldn't believe confident and detailed. He's got a chance. Many of you have come out colts fans and non colts fans to say, this is this is not the guy that sound clip. Probably doesn't convince you anything. You look at Chuck Pagano. Has been a head coach before. Some to be said for that. Like, look he's stuck around longer than munch acted and munch considered the front runner for this job. Yeah. I don't know. If you saw that report munch hack is the guy to beat according to. Mike cliffs, so there you go. Chuck Pagano was a head coach longer than Mike munch was. But here's the thing. The AFC south was AFC south is still not a great division. But it was garbagey. Oh when he was top thing about it Jaguars normal. Jags not the one year AFC championship. Jags. The every other year Jags the titans with Mike month. Check, by the way. And then you have the Texans who have been you know, up and down probably consistently. The biggest rival to the colts in that division over the years. But still took advantage of a weak division was Owen eight against the Steelers and the patriots the best teams in said AFC. I'm not saying this to disqualify him. I'm just saying that. There are some definite. Knocks against the idea of hiring. Chuck Pagano today. The Broncos are interviewing exact Taylor kind of other end of the spectrum. No NFL head coaching experience. In fact, no NFL now I lie. He was the OC for the Bengals for year. So I shouldn't say that he's never been in. No, see. But right now, he's a QB coach for the Los Angeles Rams. And I don't think Taylor's the guy either. I think Taylor. If the Broncos are going to go with drew lock at number ten in the draft or trade up for Dwayne Haskins. They are going to want a progressive offensive mind. Not Gary kubiak. Not Bill musk grave. Zac Taylor is not interviewing to be the head coach of the Denver Broncos today. He's interviewing to be the offense coordinator, he just he just doesn't know it yet. Because that's what John always gonna do. John Elway because he wouldn't be able to get an interview because there are other teams that are interviewing for for a head coach. And I think they are doing the same thing. I don't think Zack Taylor is going to be the head coach anywhere this year. But he'd be a heck of an offensive coordinator. And if you're going to draft a quarterback at number ten, especially one that needs some structure, but still some progressive thought in the offense if you're going to draft a drew locker Dwayne Haskins that Taylor's your guy, but you have to choose between the two of them. The Broncos did not interview their head coach yesterday and interview their offensive coordinator today. If they wanna go Taylor, if they wanna go lock than go Fangio and just turn the clock back, and let's do this rebuild thing. We can all get behind a rebuild. Right. We all can understand the thought behind it. We can have patience. No misplaced expectations. Or you. Go Pagano you bring in kubiak to be offensive coordinator. And now the case keenum still your quarterback. And you're not. Not lowering expectations. People are going to expect the Broncos will be back to the playoffs that might be what John Elway wants. But that's the way he's going to get. If he goes down that road coming up tomorrow, we'll be Mike check that supposed- guy to beat. According to Mike Klis. Here's story number two back.
"chuck pagano" Discussed on Xtra Sports Radio 1300 AM
"All of the interviews over the next six days have been mapped out. First up is former colts coach, Colorado native, Chuck Pagano. Dan. Coming in tomorrow is the QB coach of the Rams Zach something or other. Zac, taylor. Thank you. And then who else we got we got Friday. It's Mike mon- check. Right. Mike munch? And then the Monday, they're doubling up with the patriots defensive coordinator, Brian Flores and your boy, Vic Fangio. Yep. The name. I think I know this answer is can I just say real quick. Yes. I would love it. If Vic Fangio, and let's just say Jim Bob cooter happened interview for the offense coordinator job and got it. How cool would that be guiding Fangio and a guy named Jim Bob cooter, though, we to talk about all year. It would be tremendous though, be great it really it really would funding to save on your coaching staff. Unfortunately, I think the circumstances have become too dire to opt for the names over at least the full names over the big names. Are you all in on Fangio? Is that your guy for the Denver Broncos based on this list? Yes. And I would agree out of this list. That Fangio is the most intriguing I would like a a name to come out of left field. Because generally likes to do that sometimes. But yeah this list. Fangio? I think that the QB coach Zac Taylor for the Rams. We talked about this on Monday. Because the news cycle was moving fast and furious with the Denver Bronco, right? One of the hottest coaching candidates last year. Was Matt leflore Matla floor was the offensive coordinator. I believe offensive coordinator. He might have also been a QB coach for the Rams and with the season that Gough had finally Jared Goff lived up to what a top draft. Pick is supposed to do. Obviously, Sean McVeigh his rise along with the floor. But leflore was part of that people thought that leflore had a lot to do with the success of the Rams the titans brought him in as offense coordinator. And I don't pretend like I've watched sixteen titans games this year, but leflore stock has gone down. Precipitously? Over the course of this season. And I would caution any Broncos fans that see the name Zack Taylor and more importantly, see Rams QB coach and think oh McVeigh's the new Mike Holmgren, right? I mean anyone that comes off of that tree? We got grab them. Right. The first guy off of McVeigh's tree did not have a very good season. Though. He's getting interviews. He is getting interviews. The Packers are the one that I've seen the most. Yeah. I think that's a unique situation because they have the most diva Alicia quarterback that we may have in this game and Aaron Rogers. So I think you definitely need somebody that can match wits with Aaron Rodgers. But you also need someone to be a little bit more. What's the word? I'm looking for subservient. You are there to do. Aaron Rodgers is bidding. That's what the Green Bay job is. And that's why I have for Packers fans. I say you don't want mcdaniels. But as a person who doesn't care how the Packers do all please higher mcdaniels like mcdaniels Brady fight constantly. But there's a clear winner. Right. Because Tom Brady is the goat in mcdaniels is not right. Aaron Rodgers and Josh mcdaniels arguably have achieved the same level of success in their respective career pads because Aaron Rodgers has a Super Bowl Josh mcdaniels has won multiple. But as a coordinator, I think both guys would feel like they have the right to yell at the other one right now. It's like it's cute that mcdaniels argues with Brady, but we know at the end Brady will win. So anyway, I digress. I don't hate the idea of Zack Taylor as a potential offense coordinator candidate. Yeah. To do what they did with Vance. What the initial plan with Vance was right? The initial plan with Vance was get this DB coach. And I mean defensive backs coach. Yeah. And let's promote him to defensive coordinator with us and the Bengals said, no, you cannot have him. Right. And and then I think that that made John Elway. You can't tell John Elway. You can't have somebody. I think that's the Las thing in all of this is that John Elway was told. No and that made him want Vance Joseph Baltimore. So I would say that. With the Rams qb coach. I think it's interesting to discuss potentially bring him in as an offensive coordinator, not as much at stake. John Elway has proven you can always replace an offensive coordinator. So I think Zack Taylor is going to be brought in. Like, Vance was initially to say, okay, we're going to give you a step up. And I have no problem with that. The real candidates. I think for the head coaching job. At least the ones that have been mentioned. Gano munch. And I don't even believe Flora's is a legitimate candidate hope not and Fangio. I think those are the guys right now. Because again, there guys are involved in the postseason John Harbaugh that the Broncos cannot make overtures with I don't even know if the Broncos will be able to interview John Harbaugh if that trade possibility progresses, but I know that the ravens aren't gonna discuss this right now. The ravens are worried about what they're worried about. And that's the Los Angeles chargers. So. Of these candidates. You like Fangio, I think if you go Fangio, then you I think you need to go the rebuilding full on rebuild route. Would you agree with that assessment? Or do you think Fangio is good enough that this team can add veteran players and be good next year? I think they can add veteran players, right? I. You know, Fangio better than I do because you are a a nice big Broncos fan, obviously. But with your your family's ties to Chicago and stuff you watch a lot bears games. You know about the bears. I say you're going to bring in Fangio, and he's going to be. Over-simplification take is that he's going to be more experienced Vance Joseph defensive-minded first time head coach. So to me, the tact that I would take if I'm John Elway Fangio's your guy, and I don't hate that idea. You have enlighten me on what Fangio has been able to do in Chicago consistently that defense has gotten better and better and better. And now arguably they are the best in the NFL before before they before he took over there were like the second works. No are number one. Statistically, right, number one. And I would say that as opposed to Vance Joseph that is a more complete body of work as a coordinator. So I liked the idea of Fangio Chuck Pagano to me screens. What John Elway is going to try and do. He's gonna try bringing in a veteran coach to work with case. I don't think he's going to jump ship on case keenum next year. No. And I think that John Elway with the cap space. The Broncos have is going to be looking to add rather than subtract. I know that he didn't dismiss the notion of trading von Miller out of hand. But to me you look at the Broncos they have Chris Harris, they have von Miller two of the ten at worst best defensive players in the National Football League. Who will both probably not be around if the who won't be in their prime win the Broncos come out of a potential rebuild. So to me everything points in the direction of going veteran coach that's where John L A's hit kubiak, FOX. Their personnel says veteran coach, but is Chuck Pagano. The right guy. That's that's the question. Mark that I have with that. Because Chuck Pagano had Andrew luck. True. And are you going to get the most out of case keenum with Chuck Pagano gain, more of a defensive minded guy? So. And. If you look at the reports, there's a re if the reports are true, there's a reason they're going defense. Because who they looking at for offensive coordinator. His who has been talked about. And and. Kubiak? Yes. So they don't want a head coach to step on kubiak toes. So if he's defense of minded he's going to go and step on whoever Joe woods or whoever the coordinators going forward his toes. Right. And I don't think one of the record. That's you bring you bring up a great transition though, because we'll take a break and on the other side is it the right course, of action for the Denver Broncos to have an OC already in their hip pocket, and Gary kubiak is that the right way to conduct this coaching search to try and force kubiak on any potential candidate. We'll talk about that. After we take a look at your traffic. Here's an Xtra sports look at the streets. Southbound I.

"So I hope he plays in whatever capacity. Hope he plays. Well, because I think teddy is a starting quarterback in this league. And I would like to see him have offers as such even if he turns them down to go back up drew Brees one more year to than do. Let's not forget as a young quarterback. Teddy Bridgewater lead eighteen to play off at the doorstep of victory. And the kicker mistake kick against the atom plane at home. So teddy Bridgewater has led eighteen alr-. Ready to the playoffs in a young career. All right moving onto the Packers. Packers eliminated from the playoffs. The search for their next head coach has now officially begun with Green Bay reportedly interviewing Jim Caldwell and Chuck Pagano. See any of these candidates? Good fit for the job. I think both of these candidates. I'm glad that Green Bay did interview. Because for me, I just think that sometimes in this league and been covering it soul long. Sometimes we forget about coaches that have already established himself coaches that typically what we've seen even with Bill Belichick being the greatest example their second time around typically is that better stint in the league. And you talk about Gano had a tough situation there as far as ownership and the general managers far as the players and stuff that they were going to get drafted what style they were going to play at. But coach pagawa brought a sense of toughness to the Indianapolis Colts. What is Aaron Rodgers a Green Bay Packers need right now. And they need to get freaking tougher. And I think. The ultimate compliment for a guy like coach for Ghana was remember when he got sick, and he had cancer and Bruce area and took over and he talked about coach always going to leave the light on for you and the type of impact that he started having on that community. So for me, it's not Xs and os. I know he's going tighten up that defense, which they need. But also he is going to be there for Aaron Rodgers to listen, we're going to do this. And I think the Aaron can trust him called will he's gotten great results from the quarterback. No matter where he is the quarterback. He is a stabilising voice is just like Tony dungee, but on offense of side people don't give him credit for the offense football that he knows the stability. He brings to that quarterback room. And to that offense. I believe he is a great candidate. So I think the Packers they are on the right track. No, they're not looking for some young up and coming the sexy, the spicy the psalm McVay as Jenner would say, no. They're going old veteran coaches who had a try are two and believe that going forward. This is the way to the best way to build a fine the coach and because they can't be wrong. Just like we were talking about LeBron's age. He ain't gonna play forever era, thirty five he's not playing forever now air Aaron Rodgers is this is whomever. This coach is going to be as last head coach. And if it's not it's because disaster happened and the coach got fired quickly. That's why I don't think the Packers are in position to go for upside unknown. I think you have to go with someone who knows what they're doing. And I'm I'm just really surprised, and I'll be honest a little disappointed with some of my not your contemporaries so much in the media. But people more like me people that didn't play people that try to analyze the game the way they have laughed off to Caldwell interview as some Rooney rule token situation. Jim Caldwell has been an excellent coach in this league. Now hard it is to get to the playoffs twice with Detroit..

"Bell plays for next season. The number one team in my mind ever since it became clear, he was gonna hit the open market next year. Now one caveat where the Steelers could try to get cute and use the transition tag. Although they can't keep it from hitting the open market and signing with whoever he wants to sign with and they have a right to match and they're not going to match between James Connor, Jalen Samuels. They're not going to pay big money to keep lady bell around. I think the jets are the team that will put the money together. I think the jets are ready to spend baby they're going to spend baby they're going to have to Jim Harbaugh, then they're gonna have after leaving on bell. And we'll see if they get on bell. Because there was a report that emerged recently Faulk Yano of S N Y reported that bell is keeping on the colts. It bell is intrigued by Andrew lock that offensive line. They're putting together with Quentin Nelson. Six overall pick in the draft last year who has become a force. He was the NFL's offensive rookie of the month in October. And the offensive line and the rest of the team really taking on that Quinton Nelson. Very rough and tumble mindset in a good way. Lady on bell intrigued by the colts. But what the colts pay? Chris Ballard is not going to go out and pay top dollar the first day of free agency. Now, your general approach can be you wait for the market to soften. And then you go shopping for bargains with the understanding that every once in a while you go out and spend topped all of the patriots do that. They did that with Stefan. Gilmore course. The only time they ever did that before Kilmore was a daily as Thomas. Remember him? Thomas didn't work out. Gilmore's worked out in large part because the rest of the defense hasn't. But maybe that's what Ballard will do. They got the cap number. The got the cash. And also, there's an owner to be concerned about jimmer sake. Say I want lady on bell earth say. At a press conference last year after they fired. Chuck Pagano suggested that they would go saquon Barkley. In the draft. Now, they wouldn't have gotten a chance Adam because they were number three number six for the jets. But it could be Jetson coal to vying for lady on bell question for Lebanon bell. Eventually may be do you take less? To play for. The colts. With a better offense of line with a more proven quarterback. And a team that still has a chance to win the division. Texans losing colts win Sunday. Call to the FCC, south champions in rebuilding year. Rebuilding. If they're rebuilding this year. How good are they going to be next year when they're not? Chris Ballard told us at the league meetings last year that it's gonna take to drafts to make the team competitive teams already competitive. Chris Ballard has an argument for executive of the year. When you think about the draft pick. They did they get Quinton Nelson and traded down to get him picked up extra stuff. Spend the money wisely picked up Eric Ibran for bargain-basement dollars. And they don't need lady. On belly got Marlin MAC at bargain basement dollars for the next two years at rookie minimum salaries. Why do you want to spend a bunch of money on bell guy who hasn't played in a year? You got MAC for six figures each of the next two seasons. Pay bell seventeen million a year. I say wants them. No or say may get him. Charlie Jones wants to know is there a worst tackling team than the chiefs. Tackling isn't what it used to be. And I know that when you say that you run the risk of sounding like old man yelling at clouds, but they don't work on the fundamentals like they used to. They don't have live tackling in practice like they used to. And part of the reason is that you don't want to get your house injured. You don't want to inflict head trauma? Unnecessarily Tim green the former first round pick of the falcons whose dealing with a LS. Now. There was a recent sixty minutes profile, and he spoke there either there or in a prior story. He did with sixty minutes about how practices worse than a game is beat the hell out of each other. They used to now they don't and the downside to that. Is you have guys who who don't tackle as well as they used to because they don't work on the fundamentals now, they have like that that robotic tackling dummy have different techniques to help you learn how to tackle. But I don't think there's any replacement for trying to tackle another human being who can move in an infinite variety of directions. And you have to develop that sense of what it takes to hit low to apply the tackle the right way and get him to the ground. And there just isn't enough work. Put in it doing it the right way. They don't have the opportunities. They don't want to take the physical risks. So yeah, you get the games, and you don't tackle. While a lot of teams don't tackle what kind of the way it works. All right. Here's how it works. Here. We.
