Neither was Childress.


Wait what? Childress was an offensive coordinator and coach.


It was a joke.

Just because Childress coached offense all of his coaching career doesnt make him an offensive guru.

Belichick often gets credited for a lot of Brady's success and he was a defensive coach as well.

Actually I thought it was McDaniels that got credited for Brady's success, not Belichick. Belichick gets credited with the Patriots and getting Brady the rings and the team but not necessarily developing him.

I find that hard to believe since Brady and McDaniels are basically the same age and McDaniels didnt join the Pats offensive staff until 2004. By then, Brady won his rings.

McDaniels is clearly a case of an assistant coach riding the coat tails of two HOFers.

Then it was Charlie Weis (getting my years mixed up)

Maybe, then again, what has Weis ever done outside of Brady and Belichick. Might be another case, most coaches have failed once they leave Brady/Belichick.

I guess I would be concerned with Bevell riding the success of Favre and Carrol/Wilson, but we may never know how good he really is until he ultimately fails or succeeds. Its a risk the Bears have to take, though there isnt a single riskless hire they could make.

Does Bevel have the ability to put together a coaching staff? can he attract anyone of merit?

can he attract free agents, since the Bears tend to go that route?

who else is on the Bears' short list? i mean, i can't really believe that Bevell is at the top of it.

he might be getting interviewed first, but that doesn't mean he's their top choice.

The other two finalists are Bruce Arians and Montreal Alouettes HC Marc Trestman

Trestman would be interesting, not many Canadian coaches make it in the NFL as head coaches.

Bud Grant comes to mind, but I get your point.

i'd list Bevell as 3rd on that list.

Trestman has NFL and American college experience.

Agreed, Trestman has a ton of NFL experience.

I like Arians the most for Chicago.

Trestman has deserved to be a NFL head coach for a long time. We are talking about a guy that coached Bernie Kosar, Steve Young, Vinnie Testaverde (rookie season), Rich Gannon (in his MVP season), Scott Mitchell (in his most productive year), and Jake Plummer (with the Cardinals).

what Seattle fans say about hiring Bevell:

Please do this.

I will say this, he has improved over the year. He calls the dumbest 3rd and short plays I have ever seen.

I don't want to lose him, simply because Wilson was successful with him, and I dont want to jeopardize that. But I still dont really like him.

However, I think he would make a better HC than OC, as he is a very good players coach. I think the players like him and follow his guidance.

Sounds about right, i do think Bevell could become a better HC than OC if he can hire two strong coordinators and let them control things. Kind of like Tomlin in Pittsburgh.
