    Give the Bears permission to interview our OC? The guy who helps run our offense? The one who comes up with plays and signals? **** that, they can go kick rocks

    But he canīt block the interview. The Bears have now 1 or 2 weeks for the interview. It depends on the next game I believe.

    There might be a few other coaches who could leave. But Clements would be a huge blow

    Norm, I know you've pointed out in the past how you feel that Rodgers has too much power as far as control on the offense in terms of plays (ala Peyton). So I guess that makes me wonder, how much does Clements have to do with the system. Or even Philbin before this season, for that matter.

    Hard to say. I know Clements is a WIZARD with QB's like Mike is too. Half of me wouldn't mind if he left to bring someone in who is more balanced but with Mike calling the plays it won't matter.

    That's my only concern with Clements. GB, in general, have proven to be consistently on top of the curve over the last 20 years at least as far as offensive innovation goes. So it's obviously a big reason why Clements is definitely one of the top guys for me along with Dennison and Chip Kelly. However, I just hope he isn't a Jim Caldwell, i.e. a product of a great QB.

    Chip Kelly is a very intriguing prospect for you guys, but it's still a bit of a risk.. I'd hate to see Clements go, well to the Bears at least.. But I wouldnt hate em.

    He may be a risk, but I truly think he's the next Belichick. The guy thinks new age, ala moneyball, and I love it.

    I don't think we'll go for Chip for the simple fact that he appears to want personnel control as well as HC. At this point, I'm just happy that we have a management that appears to put a greater stress in advance statistical analysis than before.

    Chip is undoubtedly a risky hire, but I truly believe that when we look back from now in 10 years or so assuming Kelly does get hired this season, whoever it is that hires him, we will be looking at one of the best organizations/coaches. I've followed and read enough about him to believe he's THAT good.

    He is one of those rare coaches like a Belichick and Sean Payton who are on top of the curve that are slowly bringing this new age type scheming to the NFL.

    If you want to know more about him, here's a great article that sums up what he essentially brings. Again, I don't see him being hired by the Bears happening, although I'd LOVE for it to happen. My money is actually on Clements as our next HC who is probably option 2a/b for me (tied between him and Rick Dennison) so I certainly won't complain either way.

    Packers cannot block a coordinator from interviewing for a HC job. Best they can do is dealy it a week, but I think he is required to interview before the divisional round of the playoffs.

    Its not uncommon. Any type of promotion we'll grant. Coaching coming into GB got to respect that.

    By NFL rule, the Packers have to allow an interview for a head coaching position. If the Bears wanted him to be the OC, then the Packers could tell them no.

    I believe it only applies to head coaching positions though.

    MM still calls the plays. If Clements left I'm sure they would find a suitable replacement. But ultimately the offensive play calls are still made by McCarthy.

    Profootballtalk reports that the Bears are "currently interviewing" Saints offensive coordinator Pete Carmichael Jr. for the team's head-coaching vacancy on Wednesday night.
    Clearly they are looking for an offensive minded coach.
