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

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.
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.

Well they granted the request to interview Clements
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.
Clearly they are looking for an offensive minded coach.Profootballtalk reports that the Bears are "currently interviewing" Saints offensive coordinator Pete Carmichael Jr. for the team's head-coaching vacancy on Wednesday night.
"If Rodgers were even just simply as good as Brady or Manning in the playoffs, his team would almost never win. Instead, what we've seen is a super hero act."
