"See you hear the passion from George McCaskey. Here is hatred for the Packers. You know, you heard the record that I gave 13 and 28 since 2000. Basically like 99 is when Ted took over. I believe that does include the 99 season when I calculated that believe that is Ted Phillips. His record is president against the Packers, 13 and 28. You know all of this. You know he wants to win, or I think that I don't know anymore. Then you throw all this stuff at him about Head and the record. And while he says he doesn't meddle E does tell you that these in charge of Ryan paces fate right? And then he consults with with Tad number one over the future of Ryan and Matt. And why don't you want to change and he just won't buy a few things here. First of all. George is always picked up the phone for us. Okay, now we put in if I'm not in my right, Adam, we asked for. We asked for George. We asked for Matt. We asked for Ryan, right? That was my Yes. I went to favor and I asked for all of it, okay? George is always the guy that picks up the phone and talks to us. We may not agree with some of the decisions last two years he has yes. Um So I'm saying, like I give him credit for that. I go give him credit for coming on. And talking with us, Um You know again, Like I said, I I I'm not necessarily in a green and green with a lot of what he says. It's the reason why I'm with you. I think what I take most from this interview is Thought that Ted Phillips isn't playing a large role with regard to football decisions up at Halas Hall, I think is a false statement, and I think that you know Yes, it's easy to say he's not involved in day to day operations. Of course he's not calling the Jets sweep toe cold come out on the goal line. Against Jacksonville. That's not Ted. Okay? Ted's also not asking why you're not giving the ball to to David Montgomery. Ted's also not asking why you chose jail and Johnson. In the second round of this past draft. I get all of that, but that's why I circled back and asked him the question. If for whatever reason, the decision needs to be made that Ryan Paces run is the general manager of this team. Who makes that decision, and his answer was Ted. So like that is all you need to know with regard to the question of whether or not Ted's involved in football decisions, right and when you say to yourself. This is a team that's been around for 101 years. The charter franchise. This is a team that for years can't win. And sustain it. They've been toe back to back post seasons in the last 25 years. 10506 Okay, very few post seasons in general, they can't get the quarterback. Right. So it's a systemic issue. It's it's year in and year out, so change that Change it at the top and who is involved in all the hiring of the football people. While he's not a football guy, it's Ted Phillips. When George McCaskey needs advice in Georgia, and minutely doesn't know a lot about football. Who does he go to? He goes to another man who doesn't know a lot about football. That to me is wrong. And when you look in the mirror when you want to evaluate your own team, and you say, Where have we missed? Why do we consistently lose to the Packers? Why do we consistently miss out on the quarterback's? Why do we not get to the playoffs More consistently? You say we've got toe Look what's poisoning the water. And while we've changed the quote football people, the one constant has been the guy who's been the president of the team. You have a professional football team. What's the most important component of your professional football team? 3 53 Man roster. What is the what? The most important component of a football team. Would suggest to you that it's the talent on that team coaches your important There's a lot of things that are important, but the talent on that team will define you more readily and more frequently than any other aspect of it. If you've got a great quarterback and good offensive personnel, you're going to score a lot of points and win a lot of games, right if you've got better players than we do. So You could then connect the dots and suggest that the general manager of the football team Is, in most instances, the most important person inside that organization. Could you make a statement for that? Yes, right. Who's in charge of hiring the most important person inside your franchise head? That guy is a football decision maker. If that guy's in charge of deciding rue your architect of your organization is that guys wielding tremendous power and if he gets it wrong? Your roster isn't gonna look very good. And whatever coach comes in isn't going to have the necessary groceries to make you a delicious meal. Right? When you're the president and your GM goes rogue. You had all the situation for that. You were the guy who hired him. You're the guy who he reports to Allowing him to go rogue in the most important decisions of your team. You know this because you've been covering this team how many general managers has Ted Phillips been part of firemen to remember. This is a team that went from Venecia at the end of the eighties till the early two thousands when they hired Angelo. Okay, so they get Ted. And Ted hires Angelo. Angela's got to tell you Run, they 10 year run. And then after Angelo, you went toe Amery, which was here for two or three years, and then you went to pace which over the last six years, and Ryan hasn't been a dumpster fire. There've been some nice elections, but overall, you've wished too often at the top of the draft and the most important component of any professional franchise. I'll are you is your quarterback and you made a drastic mistake there over six years. Ryan. Good guy. Has a record of less than that's 10 games below 500. There's nary a playoff win on his resume. The point I'm making is The guy who is then going to serve as the consultant, so to speak, or one of the loudest voices in the room with regard to hiring the next general manager who is the architect of your 53 man roster. That guy's wielding tremendous power. Yeah, we got full phone lines. Your reaction to the Ted Phillips interview. Josh. Amantino, you're on ESPN 1008 Josh. Hey, guys, good to talk to you. Listen, if this is gonna sound insane, but keeping Maggie and pace was the right decision and follow the twisted logic, But here's why Because they have done some things well. And have improved a little bit not nearly enough, but I'm not satisfied with it. But according to the people who matter As long as you're willing to admit, Hey, we fucked it that you're going to own it and not embarrass them in the media. You embarrass you embarrass us on the field. But as long as you're willing to be a stand up guy and say yes, we struggled. That was my bad. That's enough accountability for them. So the reason why they should stay is at least maybe they can do some things right? Because until George or Ted Get out of the way or changes the way they do think they were gonna hire new people that were any good anyway, right? That That's the problem. It's rinse and repeat over. They keep they keep. They keep getting it wrong over and over when they start from scratch, and it's because of the way it's been forever. It's an interesting point, Jeremy and Wheat field, Jeremy, You're on ESPN 1000. Hey, guys, How's it going?.

"He's cheap. But you can't concern yourself with with who? You're trading. Well, you just did. By the way. You know if you're just Shawn wants it. Okay, So you have the no trade clause and you have that in your pocket. So, Yeah, I'm willing to waive that. But I'm going to tell you the teams I want to go to. So start talking to them. What's attractive about here, Inscribe. You have half an offensive line. You have a serviceable toe Good running back in Montgomery. You know? What do you do with Ellen Robinson? Tag him and make him unhappy. Um, you know he wants 20 plus million for a long term and doesn't look like they have the wherewithal to get that done. So And on the defense. It's an aging defense just shot. Watson just spent the last season a half running for his life, right and having no one to throw two in this year in particular. So what weapons does he have here? Tioga, get him excited, you know, come to met. I mean, Jimmy Graham's not gonna be here and you know, whatever. And Tariq Owen, I mean, what? What do you have here? T o make him excited about coming to Chicago. Well, at least you've got the reinforced belief in Matt, Maggie and Ryan Pace who are in a win or you're out. Oh, wait. No, that's never good, either, you know? No, right. This is Yeah. This is the amazing part about where the Bears have kind of set themselves. You. You can make your argument if you'd like for keeping Matt Maggie and for keeping Ryan pace for another season. I'm not necessarily gonna buy that argument. There's fans don't necessarily have to buy that argument. There is an argument, right? You'll grant me that. Still, you're you're setting against yourself. This this force That is last year of a contract winner. Go home. You know this is those are decisions. And kind of trends that typically have coaches and G m's overreaching and not really coming up with the number of wins. That gets you into the postseason. Or I guess if you come up 18 80 certainly don't get you a win in a playoff game. Right. And so Ryan Pace desperate as he is. To save his job and maybe start the clock reset the clock out his own career here in Chicago. Does find a way. How many five years DP goes to draft picks. I mean, who's gonna be the check and balance when he comes to George McCaskey? And overpays for two. Shawn Watson, if that's possible, and it is possible, right, because, well, I didn't get it right the first time, But watch me now I got to Shawn Watson for you, and that sounds really great in the short term and long term. But also you're going next three years and starting drafting in the third round, fourth round or whatever. And you've got an aging defense and you've got, you know, Tell me how you gonna get your tackles upgraded this year, too. It's uh, yeah, I mean, it's an interesting you know, he's paid himself into this corner and to your point, I said on the Bears pregame show with Fred you dinner after the three game win streak. That's probably enough for the McCaskey's and everyone in House Hall to save everyone's jobs. If you were looking for a rational Recent rationalize why everyone sticks around that they could go to the resume meeting and say with a straight face, and that's exactly what they did. How many run it back teams in the NFL? Succeed after a six game losing streak in a season. Yeah, I mean, no, they just they don't The old story. The older account of the old rule of thumb was a three game losing streak gets people fired. It does in the NFL, if you definitely Yeah, double it, but No. One. No one was penalized for the six game loses like they were innocent bystanders for that. Well, it's a pandemic, Brian. I mean, you know that we're counterfeiting defense is and by the way when they're five and one And everyone who's watching closely like you. And I never, ever bear smell was like, Wow, I know that five of one, but, boy, I'm watching this stuff and they don't feel like fiber one. And that's when that Maggie's like. Oh, you're not gonna be negative about you. You're not gonna win this. We're gonna have the club dubbed and they were deal. Don't don't go negative on the beak. No, he didn't want to hear it. But you were watching it going, boy. They're lucky 51. I mean, and then they get like that with the 60 and losing streak. If I cover baseball, and I can smell the smoke and see the mirrors after five and one on that bears team than everybody can't and I just We're in this situation over and over again. It feels like where are the Bears Don't have a quarterback and they've got to go ahead and find one. I wonder how they're gonna do it. This time. We'll talk about the potential, I suppose of the Shawn Watson coming to Chicago with Sarah Bar shop. Covers the Texans for ESPN.

"Again, which Chicago Bear is closest to George McCaskey. Ted Phillips Mad Maggie Ryan Pace You see, when we heard that press conference? It hurts some sound from it today. They're all in lock and step. They're all in contact all sounds the same. Actually. All four guys, you can't have an outside source to tell them the truth. You know why? Because all includes would walk in there with a mirror. Correct. That would be a problem for them correctly. Don't mirrors that late. Fourth and household got it. You got it. He realized that cap. You see that analysis right there. I've just and all those things that we kind of knew some things. Maybe we don't know. But on the surface, he's talking about the personnel. It is embarrassing in the National Football League that Patterson's the backup to the Montgomery, You're seriously the backup. Where's your thunder and lightning? When it comes to the running game, they said, You want to run the football, but that was late into the season. What now he wants is to be looking like cancer to be Maura vertical passing game, but you can't do that. Especially. We got handcuffs on your cornerbacks, both of them Correct Falls and Travis Key. Neither one good enough. That's just not There's just no identity. No idea of their You know what I know? Because I see the won loss record. Now watch the games. Correct. You got right now, Chef. He told us you have two sources. Your right eye in your left eye. Yep. And if the games are not giving you empirical proof, how about just looking at numbers and seeing that you're toward the bottom and a lot of offensive categories? That's just not going to get it done like if I was George McCaskey. Got in play in the NFL. I grew up around it because my family owned it. Well, then I'm gonna go get a covert test. You get a covert test, and then I want you to sit down and spend six hours with me discussing philosophy. Okay, face to face, not assume. Both make sure we're clear. We're good. We're tested and then I need you to spend a day with me. I want to talk about every area of my organization to do that, because they don't have what hangs but down there. They don't have that to do it because if you bring in the mirror than you actually are showing the wards of your franchise They're harmonious. They're happy up there. I got money, and I've got a franchise and we're doing just fine because they need says you're doing just fine. We're not awful. Yeah. Yeah, If that's your standard, then that's what you get capped what they should put a big sign up at Soldier Field. Chicago Bears were not awful. It's like the old Cubs, Chicago Cubs baseball. We're working on it, and we're working on it. Really? That's your slogan? That's what that's what you tell your fan base. We're working eight. Nate tells you that, you know, all right, but you're really not though. Eight. Nate tells you that you don't know what direction you're going. You have no clue all those question marks all those potholes on this roster. All these things When you have more questions than answers about your football team your football operation and says all you need to know well said, shot or no shot and your calls. Next. Cap.

"And Chairman George McCaskey. And just about every bears fan out. There was disgusted by the tone and the tenor of this press conference that everything is fine. Trust the process we like where we're at. We've got good people after an eight Nate season where they backed into the playoffs, and then had it embarrassing Showing in the postseason. Here is Chairman George McCaskey on his faith in Pace and Maggie. I think it's the way they collaborate. Matt's been involved in player personnel decision since he's arrived here. Of course, Ryan has final say on the Selection and roster decisions, but it's how well they work together. Like I said they have vigorous discussions. And we think that their collaboration will result in the right decisions for the Bears. So here's the thing. Is that if you want stability Ryan Pace, man, Maggie, That's one thing. Okay? And I am a proponent of stability. I think that the way that people succeed in the workplace is if you give them a serious of expected situations, expected roles. The understandable is that doable Z and then you tell them here or the actual items. This is the structure. Here's the expectations. This is the stability and now you must succeed and achieve within that structure. So with the Bears, and they go look, we don't want to keep changing coaches and G M's. We did go to the playoffs too out of the last three years. We think there's some building blocks here. It's not all bad. Khalil Mack is phenomenal. Alan Robinson's really good. You know what we want Some of this that's fine. What I think, though you have to add to this press conferences and going eight. Nate and not having a solution. A quarterback is not okay. And they missed that part, and fans and media hate that. They hate when you turn on the garden hose, and they put it on your back and they tell you it's raining. Everything from bears land. Yesterday was great season. Great guys. Great organization were great. And the fact is, they're not that that's an alternate reality. They are not great. It's not all good. That Maggie gets credit for keeping the guys together in the middle of a season, where they had a six game losing streak. And okay, there's value there despite going on that massive losing streak and take themselves seemingly out of the playoff hunt. Rebounded late in the season and made the playoffs and being in the playoffs is a good feeling for your franchise in your for your fan base. But Matt Maggie's offense sucks. It just is sucky sucker. Tude Suck tax IQ. It's awful. Nagy, supposedly a chip off the Andy Reid block. What was he doing in all those Andy Reid meetings? Because I don't see anything that looks like the chief. I don't see anything that looks like Andy Reid. Nothing. Number two. The quarterback situations a disaster. Nick Foles was the worst starting quarterback of the NFL not named Cam Newton this year, and you could say less effective than Cam Newton because Cam Newton at least could run the football. Risky came in there, and he has not gotten better since his rookie season. So you have been able to fix the quarterback position and Ryan Pace by the way, invested a ton of draft collateral in drafting Mitra. Risky. So how do you trust his sense when he bypassed? On Patrick Mahomes into Sean watching for that guy. And you should say eight. Nate is not our standard. And the Bears have always been this cherished civic Jule football in Chicago that bears They just mean Maura than everything else combined. Yeah, The Cubs are beloved and the Bulls were great and there's tons of Blackhawks fans and it doesn't matter that they're not the Bears. It's the same thing in Philadelphia. All those other teams are great. They're not the Eagles. Bears or the Bears or the Bears. And the fact that the Bears organization consistently seems very happy and content with itself for going to one Super Bowl since 1985 You can't keep trotting out the 85 bears forever because I've got.

"Against the Saints was a Jovon winds problem problem. But if your George McCaskey ran again, you zoom out and you're asking these tough questions. Don't you ask your head coach. Not your players, but your head coach. How did this happen? Not just once, but it happened A second time gets the same guy and against the same guy. And this time it was even more penalizing because you're gonna win and go home moment. No, it's a great question. Right? How? In the same position against the Eagles? You only score 15 and then against the Saints, you only scored nine. And last week you against the Packers. You only score 16 and in NFL 100 When you open the season, you only scored three. Right?

"You know, George better than me. He likes you. He doesn't like me. What do you think? Georgiana sank. He does. He's told that to some of our listeners. What? What? What? What do you think he's saying? I think there's an unnatural level of Of it's going to be okay up there. That's what I feel like. I don't have a quarterback. No quarterback on this team, no quarterback going forward. No road to get him with a guy who's never landed the quarterback. No, I know offensive line. I'd be terrified that you're on the road to To football. Hell, I mean, you're halfway there. Do you think this will be like the last? Do you remember when we all thought there would be changed under lovey? It was like one of those years where then they got, like, all got extensions. It was like the three Amigos press conference. We were thinking that Angelo and love he could be gone. I think it was like, right then do they got caught with head Angelo in love. Y'all got contracting and they all got they all. Not only did they all Save their jobs. They all got extensions. Do you think that's what we're going to see at the end of the year? Maybe not the contract extension part but just MIA culpas from those guys and saying Get out. We're putting the pressure on ourselves. We gotta get we gotta be bad. That's yes. I mean, I don't have to be back. Yes, I know. We had this conversation a little earlier in the week and engaged your thoughts on where You thought the appetite for change was and didn't you say, like 75% chance that no, I didn't say that. I would think I'm up to like. I'm still saying yes there because it's going to get worse. They will change. But I think like a couple weeks ago is a 25%. I'm somewhere now in that, like one in three chance. Just because that's the odds I would put it at because probably You know, George does stand Pat. But I'm hoping he can see it like we can see it. Your quarterback. You've you've accessed all three venues. Or avenues. Then some while you wait, We don't even mention Chase Daniel. Or we don't even make no but, you mean I mean, you got one in free agency. You moved up to drafted one. You traded for one, and you haven't found a solution. You you shuffled coaches in and out. Like offensively, they've done everything you can do. And they don't have any answers offensively and the coaches at two coaches. I mean, the general managers and two coaches, right, So I got your two coaches. I don't know. I don't know what the appetite right now currently isn't five and five. Maybe they look at the situation up there and go. Hey, we're five and five. Everybody goes through it down, you know, down moment, there's a four game losing streak. We can win a game and get high. I I see it. I see a little deeper than their record and have for a long time. But so I pulled the question before the show. Are you happy? There isn't a Bears game this week, and 87% of our listeners are voting. Yes, they're happy that there's no bears game. Think about that if you're up in that apathy. Yeah, that's just discussed. It's everything. It's we need a break. I don't want to watch any more of this. I'd rather do nothing during covert where it can't go anywhere. Then to sit. Watch my bears for three hours in a bear's town. That's crazy to me. Saying I watch your team. I still wanna watch. I voted no on. Yeah, I would vote. No, too, And you know what? Hold to your point of what? How they're thinking up there. I mean, you look at the standings The Cardinals lose last night. The Cardinals are the seventh seed right now in the NFC, the Bears or the eighth seed, and there's just the one game difference in the hunt. But that's more than the hunt. One game. No, That's my point, but that's that's like that's a surface. That's investigating on the surface when you Yeah, no, I know what's actually going. That's what I'm saying. Are you Are you looking at the surface? Are you actually looking down? You looking deeper into it? Isn't the answer to that. What do they really want to accomplish? Sure I would think like, if they're okay, just competing to try and make the playoffs each and every year. If that's what George McCaskey wants, then I'm sure you're the only reason you're competing is you've got some Quality breaks to start the season shows sustained successor championships. Let's get some championships 3323776 if you want to weigh in and guess what's back. One of our biggest events is still on even in today's world will will tell you what you need to know.

Brian Urlacher Sze, divisive social media actions will make him unwelcome at Halas Hall shot. I may end up Time heals all. And maybe he'll see the error of his ways like Drew Brees did. But right now, if I'm George McCaskey, Ryan Pace matinee. I don't want him there. Absolutely not shot. Shot. It's unfortunate for Brian Urlacher that he liked a photo of Kyle Riton House and again.

But it has nothing to do with you seemingly siding with a vigilante, crossing state lines with with the weapon and killing two people and getting water forward as a reward and Able to go back to the crib too afterwards, so I would separate myself from that You appreciate the player you don't appreciate is thoughts on this very vile act by that guy. Morning. Morning, Danny, How are you, Honey? What's up? How's your appointment? I thought you were going to say something, but he looked at me like it's my turn. But I heard you go. So I thought you were going to speak or were you just gasping? I guess I just gasped. Yes, he was. He was shocked back at my thoughts right there. Can't believe in charge. It's the desk. Mindy. I'm working would Hoody and he says something profound and I gas I can't. I can't believe it shot Take general. Let's stick with the Bears. Everybody. I'm good. All right, let's stick with the Bears. Extent of Hey, Johnny, How are you? The extent of David Montgomery's groin injury still isn't fully clear Report yesterday from Ian Rapoport estimated that it's a 2 to 4 Week recovery time table. But what happens if Montgomery remains out into the regular season and the groin issue doesn't fully resolve itself until October later, stays bulky. We know who to re cone is Ryan all got to Carrie's last season, The Bears have some undrafted rookie from Oregon State. Oh, yeah. Cordero. Patterson has been in the backfield to this camp. So I ask you guys shot or no shot. If David Montgomery's injury takes longer cover from the bear season could be over by the time they face Tom Brady and his Bucks and week five. I'm going to say no shot because they're not that stupid..

"All right, how how dare you kick to Hester like people have been telling you for two weeks. Folks, don't do this. And it's the first thing that you did it Tony Dungy talked about. And he goes we're going to do it. I don't care what the bestest he had convinced himself all week that they were going to kick away from. And then remember he told Waddle and Silvy recently that when the team chaplain told the story about David and Goliath and how how why the underdog David how he looked Goliath right in the eye and was willing to cast the stone. Tony Dungy got all riled up and said to himself we're going to do this. We're gonna kick Devin Hester. He's he got caught up in the motion and told us guys right before the start of the game. We're gonna kick to Devin Hester. Let's go do it. And sure enough it resulted in one of the best moments, and I say moment, obviously because it did not unfold them, but one of the best moments for a brief period of time in Chicago Bears history. And I can't remember a time like it's been downhill since then. It's literally been downhill since then until this year and this year what you have is. We talked about it earlier you have this window. You have this window of this defense? And this defense isn't going to be great forever. We've done a lot of comparing of the bears to the Seahawks and the way that they've kind of moved their money around. And they've spent a lot on the defense because of the luxury of having a quarterback on a rookie deal. Who's arguably going to be your your highest price player later on in his career? So you have this with the Seahawks did is they they had Russell Wilson on a rookie deal gave a bunch of money to their to their defense, and they spent on weapons around him and everything like that. Exactly. What the bears have done. They saw a window of opportunity. We're going to trade two picks for MAC, we're gonna get Khalil Mack. Now, you've got this window for this defense and the window by this loss. You have this opportunity. The bears are the healthiest they've ever been in a few years minus Eddie Jackson and Trey Burton you go into that game. And you absolutely. I think that they're going to win this game and that window just closed a little bit because you're in. You're in a division that has one of the best quarterbacks of all time and Aaron Rodgers that has a great defense with the Minnesota Vikings that has a formidable quarterback. He's done a great quarterback Kirk cousins still a manageable quarterback. And then you've got the lions who were also tough. It's going to be a tough division. And then you've got games against the saints and the chiefs and the Rams and other hard games that you're going to have to deal with next year. So it's not going to be as easy next year. You may struggle to make the playoffs next year. They may not win as many games as they won this year. So everything was lining up perfect for them. And it's all just it's all undone. And now you you have to move at you lost Vic Fangio this year. So there's going to be turn around. So that's another another piece that's missing for next year. You might lose some players, you might lose some death. Do you have to make up that death in the draft? And and create a free agency because you don't have a lot of money in calf space next year. So there's gonna be a lot of changes and a lot of turnaround. But ultimately, you don't you hope that the culture that Matt Nagy has created, and you hope that the the the players in the playmakers that they have on defense can perform no matter who the coordinator is what they're doing on defense. That is Adam Dalla, I'm Jeff maller. Filling in for Jonathan hood this evening on under the hood on ESPN one thousand you mentioned Vic Fangio leaving as he is. Now, the head coach of the Denver Broncos. John Elway introduced him this afternoon at the press conference and Vic Fangio had some fine words for the organization that he's leaving thrill the victims us and we chose Vic. And I'm glad to introduce our seventeenth head coach of the Denver Broncos to you Vic Fangio, I wanna thank to Chicago, Bears Virginia and George mccaskey for running a honorable and first class operation there. It was a great experience for me. There and I had nothing but good things and good feelings from leaving there. And you can thank Georgia talked George yesterday. And I said to him George can I do the press conference tomorrow and my grace wets. He calls it my great business suit. Should no you can't do that. So he gave me this title where so this ties compliments of George mccaskey. Chicago bears. I wanna thank matinee and Ryan pace for all their support through this process of the last few days, and they're great leadership that they've provided to Chicago Bears that finally culminated in a good season this year. And Matt become a first time head coach this year and also run the offense. Besides being the head coach has been a great resource for me for what I'm about to undertake. And he he did a tremendous job for the Chicago Bears. The bears are lucky to have. I want to thank my parents for doing something. Right. And raising me to get to this point my father did pass twenty seven years ago, but there's not a day go by that. I don't think at some point. Then my ninety two year old mother is back in Pennsylvania. And if it's snowing there today, she's out there shoveling the snow. Finally to all the players that I have worked with this would have never been possible without them buying into me. And ultimately they're great play that they put on the field for our teams special. Thanks to the great group. I just left in Chicago. It's a special group a group that I thoroughly enjoyed coaching and we'll miss coaching Vic Fangio meeting the media today in Denver, and you heard there. Lots of kind words for the bears organization that kept him on as defensive coordinator last season under Matt Nagy. Maybe not maybe kept to mind is not the best phrasing. Because obviously they they would him to come back. And they were handsomely rewarded as he led the bears to the best defense in the NFL. And now the bears are going to have to find his replacement. Of course, Donna tells name has been mentioned, but it seems like a dinatale if. If all things are rights will probably follow Vic to Denver and be his defensive coordinator there. So the bears are going to have to find somebody to come in and shepherd this this vaunted bears defense and keep them at least, you know, close to the top of the league table in terms of, you know, defensive prowess, and will they be able to do. So the talent should be there. I think the talents more than anything else is the is the key cog. It's not so much the scheme. It's the talent on paper that you can trust will ultimately keep you atop the league, and hopefully Matt Nagy as the head coach and offensive mind for a second year. We'll be able to elevate the offensive level. So that even if the defense does fall back a little bit under a a new headmaster, they can say to themselves. Hey, were you know, the if the offense comes up a bit in the defense comes down? That's okay because you can still. We'll have a SuperBowl caliber team. The question is. Will will Mitchell it's risky and the offense rise enough to offset any fallback from the defense. I think they should do whatever it takes to keep Donna tell that's just me. But I think that you will you created Nagy's created a culture in in that building and the players familiar with him. They probably are backing him as well because they want the continuity, as well, I just think that if you bring in one of these former head coaches that has a really big voice. And that that will was good about Fangio Vic Fangio is that he was a big personality. But he was really he didn't really enjoy doing all the media stuff. He was very quiet. He was very big was a no nonsense guy who just wanted to lead the defense. He wasn't all that concerned about getting all the accolades that go with being a great defensive coordinator, Rex where we all know who Rex Ryan as we all know, Rex Ryan's a big personalities got a big voice. He's going to be all over. He's like he's going to have more headline. Lines, right? When he comes here. Like, that's a big deal. You've you've got guys like Jeff Fisher who I don't think is legit. But he's out there, whatever. Jack del Rio's another name. Greg Williams is another name. These are guys always big personalities that want to get back into coaching and probably want to get back into coaching a football team and not just a defense. So I also don't want a guy who's I don't know if the NFL is to go back to this trend of hiring defense because there's always reaction there's always another. There's a reaction to the reaction. So the reaction now is we need young offensive minds. We need young offense of minds young -fensive minds. And then eventually there's going to be a swing back. When when when you go and people are going to say, well, we need to shore up our defense that we need to show up our defense. Maybe we need sharper defense. So these guys Rex Ryan isn't getting back in the league to just coach a defense. He wants to coach a football team. He wants to be a head coach somewhere Jack del Rio might be the same way. Greg Williams said he had a bunch of people calling you in for head coaching jobs. I don't know where that is now, but a bunch of people. Honor for head coaching. Apparently, it was not any of the eight that were open this year. There's one former head coach that makes this makes the most sense to me, and that's Chuck Pagano. Chocolate Gano hasn't been it for a while. He coached the colts. Everybody knows that. He coached the ravens defense in two thousand eleven he was the secondary coach for a while for them to I kind of like Chuck Pagano because I don't he's kinda that same personality is Vic Fangio, he's no nonsense. He doesn't he doesn't. You know, doesn't want the the media spotlight. He does the media obligation one day a week because he has to the problem with Chuck Pagano. Is he got the job in India based on the strength of the job that he did as the defensive coordinator in Baltimore and the truth is that I wasn't overly impressed by what Chuck Pagano did in his time in Indianapolis, Chuck Pagano? Israel claim to fame was the year that he missed and Bruce Arians took over while he was dealing with cancer and Bruce Arians actually won. The coach of the year, and like, but a lot of what Chuck Pagano is given credit for was during the time that Bruce Arians actually lead the colts the playoffs in his stead. So I was never overly impressed with Chuck Pagano. And so ultimately, I'm going to trust at Ryan pace, find the right fit for Matt Nagy. I'm not overly concerned about it. Like, they will find I think the right personality that meshes with Matt Nagy? The question is I because I do think whoever comes in. It's going to be a tall task to live up to exactly what the defense did this year. I don't I have a hard time believing. They can get better. The question is can they sustain the level that they're at for me? And that's all I'm really asking for is to get close to that. That's true. Yeah. I mean, look, I I've I kinda I knocked pays for a while. And I think it was deservedly. So because he wasn't having a great a great start. When he first started here, but he's turned around he found Matt Nagy. So I'm sure he could. Find another defensive coordinator. I think a an older coach that's coming back or a younger. Ballard Nader somewhere position coach somewhere. That's getting their first shot as a as a coordinate. The hiring of Nagy is another check on the positive side of the ledger..

"Thank you. Everybody for being here today. I have a few things I need to get through before. I open it up to your questions. I want to thank John Joe and the entire Denver organization for the honor of being the head coach of the Denver Broncos. It is a privilege, first and foremost, and a responsibility that is going to get my maximum effort twenty four seven. Jonah's been great through this process. And I look forward to us building that bond that will get us through the adversities that we will eventually come across that are inevitable in the NFL and eventually getting us to the mountaintop. I also want to thank Pat bolan and his entire family for making the Broncos one of the flagship franchises in this league. I've been in the NFL since nineteen eighty six, and I know that the Broncos only one other franchise in this league has been one more Super Bowls and Ben two more Super Bowls. And I accept the responsibility of leading us to more. I have to give some further. Thanks to some people that have helped me throughout my career. I want to thank the Chicago Bears Virginia and George mccaskey for running a honorable and first class operation there. It was a great experience for me there, and I had nothing but good things and good feelings from leaving there. And you can thank Georgia. I talked to George yesterday.

See and Matt become a first time head coach this year and also run the offense. Besides being the head coach has been a great resource for me for what I'm about to undertake. And he he did a tremendous job for the Chicago Bears. The bears are lucky to have him. I want to thank my parents for doing something. Right. And raising me to get to this point. My father did pass twenty seven years ago. But there's not a day go by that. I don't think of him at some point. Then my ninety two year old mother is back in Pennsylvania. And if it's snowing there today, she's out there shoveling the snow. I want to thank Jack Kansas, my high school coach for his passion and excellence in football, and then coaching it is what motivated me strived. I caught his passion for the game. And I decided from that point on that. I wanted to be a football coach. I wanna thank Jim Moore who were who I worked for for fourteen years in pro football. He gave me my first opportunity at a very young age because he saw something in me. And he believed in me, and I wanna thank him for that. I wanna thank Joe Marchiano fellow coach who looked out for me before I was in pro football, and was helping me along the way my journey and introduced me to Jim more without that relationship. I had with Joe and the introduction of Jim more. Maybe I wouldn't be here today. Through all the head coaches that I have worked for and all the assistant coaches I have worked with my sincere. Thanks. It's never a one man's job. It's a lot of people working together for one common goal finally to all the players that I have worked with this would have never been possible without them buying into me. And ultimately they're great play that they put on the field for our teams special. Thanks to the great group. I just left in Chicago. It's a special group a group that I thoroughly enjoyed coaching, and we'll miss coaching the great groups in San Francisco right before that for all their great play. And what they have meant for me. All the way back to the linebackers in New Orleans nine thousand nine hundred eighty six when I started coaching better known as the dome patrol what those guys did for me was set the bar high and some, you know, runs the bar said, hi, then you don't accept much less. So when I'm looking at players, I know what good player looks like because these guys set the bar high. Behind every successful. Coach are good players who execute the plan and believe in the team. Good teams have good players. But great teams have great teammates. And we will be obsessed with building that here. One of the coolest things that's happened for me over the last week or so up until accepting this job here is the amount of texts and calls that I have received from former players I've I've been with all the way back to one thousand nine hundred eighty six to the current players with the bears. Great relationships last a lifetime. And I'm looking forward to building some of those here moving forward with the Broncos. Rather than me? Participating up here. I would like to open it up to your guy's questions. What was what was the most enticing thing about this job and his opportunity, and Secondly, what is your planet quarterback? Well, it's hard to pick out one thing that was most enticing. So I'll name a few one the tradition of this franchise, which I mentioned, Pat bolan and his family and the work that he put in through uplifting. This franchise to the level. It's at. Is unmatched in the NFL. And it's always been looked upon that way. From the other people in the NFL. So to join this organization the great fan base. They have they have a record number of sellouts in all of sports something along those lines and the tradition, and those are some of the things that attracted me to this job and your second question was. Well, right now case keenum is our quarterback, and I've had the good fortune or misfortune since I'm standing here. Good fortune of seeing him at the best in his career when he played for Minnesota last year being in our division at the time. So I know what he's capable of. And we're going to try and get that out of them. What makes you ready now you've been successful for three decades? But you had interviewed for a while. Why do you what what makes this? Right. Why are you ready? We're zip because you weren't a self promoter. Maybe you weren't in this position years ago. Well, that's a long there's a long answer that. But basically, I've always felt. I've never fit the match of the profile of what certain teams we're looking for. Or you know, I was with teams that weren't succeeding at that time. Fortunately, I match the profile of what John was looking for and we formed a good marriage. Coach what role will Gary kubiak have in your organization right here. Coach sorry. What what roll Gary, Gary kubiak? Have. None of the assistant coaching positions have been determined yet. And until things are. Ironed out and Iran clad, I prefer not to comment on that. But Gary is a hell of a coach. He's a guy that I have respected throughout my career in the NFL having competed against them at several stops him at several stops and Gary's interested, then I'm interested, Vic, the view and the responsibilities are always different when you move into the bigger office. I'm guessing through the years you've envisioned what type of head coach you will be can you share with us? The description of Vic Fangio head coach. Well, I mean, you guys will be here daily with us. Once we get back on the field, and you'll be able to figure that out yourself. But. We're not gonna cut any corners gate. We're going to I'm a fundamental coach. I think the game of the NFL everybody thinks has changed and it's a high scoring league, etc. Etc. Etc. But fundamentals is still what wins wins in this league. And I'm going to stress those we're not gonna cut any corners. There will be no death by inches. We're going to stress fundamentals. Hey vick. Ended the game Sunday less than about twelve hours later. You have the interview at the Broncos hubba challenge was it to reset. And and get ready for that interview. Well. Obviously there's the disappointment. And the sudden end of the season and the shock of the game those emotions you have to get through. Once the game was over. I went back to my office after a few hours of morning and put together something to present to John and his guys, and it was easy for me because I didn't have to make a fancy presentation. I just took the stuff that I use daily and yearly. So I didn't have to work too hard to do that. But it's been a world when and. And. Happy ending. Coach. How would you determine success in your first year here with the Broncos? That we my my determination of success. Ultimately, everybody will look to the win loss record. But is my goal and purpose to make every individual player improve and get better. If we do that within his position group that position group will be better. If we do that that side of the ball, whether it be offense special teams are defense will be better and alternately will have a better team, which will lead to a better record. Okay. So you gotta start from the ground up. So we're trying to get better every day. When John looked at you and said, what are your plans on offense? For example. What what did you say what constitutes your philosophy on offense? Well, we talked about an offensive philosophy, and I believe in balance, but balanced immediately comes to your mind run past. There's other things that are needed to be balanced. Offensive play. You throw at short intermediate deep. The run it inside outside have deceptive. You run gap schemes zone. Schemes are play action movement passing. So when I say balance, I'm not necessarily talking about how many how many passes you need to have balance within your passing game and in your running game. I know that from having to defend it. So that's what we're looking to do. Congratulations on becoming the head coach for most in your coaching experience. What are keys to developing young talent? By by doing a great job coaching them. Now, what does that mean? First off to start from the ground up you give them their assignments. And then once they've mastered their assignments. Now, teaching the correct techniques to execute those. Assignments sounds simple sounds like a stock answer. But that's what it is. If you do a great job of coaching them and the players will realize that they will buy in. And they will execute for you to the maximum of their abilities. Yeah. Coacher defense went to another level when you got Khalil Mack and roquan Smith. Do you see similarities here with von Miller? And I know it's a different position. But Bradley Chubb, and what this defense can be. Well, obviously we have starting off to good players on the outside. You know von Miller. Can be one of the rare players in this league much like Khalil is. Good. I'm looking forward to working with both of them Radley's a guy that we had high grades on also in Chicago last year. And I'm aware that he had a good season this year. That's my position of expertise when I'm coaching position. And those guys are gonna get coached by their position coach, but they're going to give it a little extra for me to and we're going to try and take them both. To bigger and better levels. And I think von Miller can play even better than he's played in his career. The what's your ninety to your mother's name. And does she let you wear your gray sweats to the dinner table at her house? Her name is Alice. Once you hit a certain age. I've kind of when I go back to visit her her iron hand. She's lost her iron hand over me. But she's still very active, walks everywhere. Very active. Very sharp and she's going she's gonna outlive. A bunch of us in this room. What's that? Absolutely. Since my father has passed. He might whack me if I did Vic with NFL offense is kind of trending towards a lot of college trans and things like that..

"Love that show it is really a difficult time to care about the nfl between this and the was it a real sports you're talking about all the like the nfl basically has paid out at all with any of the players that have like injuries and stuff and it's just like bill the kutch stuff under the it's becoming a little bit of an ethical issue to actually enjoy this which is hard because we have friends that are in the nfl and it's on the watch and but it is it's we do actually co host of relevant sports podcasts is in the nfl yeah i mean not to speak for sam but i think he's aware of these issues because but the thing is like it's a lot of the players that are trying to make changes and make improvements both on the side of the making the league more known for its socially conscious stands against injustice and also making the game safer for kids players it's really the owners who are most of the owners are not all of them i mean we had the chairman of the bears george mccaskey you know the acting owner of the bears he he's one of the guys it's one of the good guys but you know there are some owners that are very vocal that are on the other side and i feel i could cast the whole league in negative light you know last year honestly i'm just not generally a fan i don't watch sports what sports i watch my teams i don't really have an nfl team so i i rarely watch the nfl anyway but last year consciously i didn't watch game.

"And whether or not ryan pace go down the draft in the first round i don't know if he's going to do that or not you may stand pat of course you know what happened last time you roll the dice was so afraid san francisco is gonna take trubisky so he was able to give the quarterback that he wanted or the quarterback george mccaskey wanted and so they bears decided to get a roquan smith linebacker from georgia and so i think that that's what they should do its offense of line it's linebacker it's you know what it's secondary to hopefully that'll be addressed as well whatever the bears do in this nfl draft they have to be able to get quality needs her bill ballot check earlier earlier this we talk about needs and wants right and bill belichick the reason why that he's teams are good it's not necessarily because he's some draft wizard that's not that's not the hallmark of new england patriots football it's not about who they draft versus the quality players they picking up through free agency some of these guys on the scrap heap some of these players that they just pick up and they just plug and play into a system to make it work it's not necessary about the draft because he take a look at the last few years like they're not necessarily these the they're excellent when it comes to the draft but it's funny that he's talked about how it's not necessarily for need is much it is just trying to find someone that is best on the board and i always think that for me if i'm drafting if i have a whole any to fill it i just think there's always obvious to me but a lot some people disagreement jd and i are gone back and forth on this for years doing shows and he feels like best available on the board you should be able to get like say for instance you have the quarterback that you want say for instance that that mitch trubisky is the guy that you want and you think is going to be next quarterback for ten years then necessarily mean you have to go up and get josh allen necessarily mean that you have to draft these quarterbacks are available in the first round the sam darnold or or baker mayfield.

"Combination would work and some alternate universe so of you thought that fox need to come back for this season approve something and with john fox to ninety two winning percentage is the second worst in franchise history which would think about that this is what matt nagy walked walking into is a organization and a team that had a to ninety two winning percentage the second worst in franchise history to abe gibbering who went eleven thirty and one from seventy to seventy four and john fox going three and fifteen against the nfc north opponents over the past three seasons it's just some of you thought it was accepted i will tell you that it was unacceptable those no doubt that this was not going to work it was not going in the right direction john fox never had a chance ryan pace and george mccaskey never had a chance in the last three seasons to compete to win a super bowl let alone the nfc title because the lack of talent and injuries one of the unsung things that's going to be talked about in burbenay and we're going to bring it out here is that there are new people in place to help some of the injury situations with this bears team i think when you're banged up as often as a bears were it's some of it's being unlucky some this is about timing but when you're banged up so often you have to be able to change the narrative and be able to find personnel that can help players deal with injuries or get away from injuries and so hopefully with some of the new people in place at house hall that will start to turn around because having a banged up team then matter who you draft to get in free agency if they're hurt that's not gonna help.
