    No, there are plenty of good coaching options out there.

    I actually just watched a video of DeFillipo breaking down the Wentz to Mack Hollins TD against redskins. Id say im pretty confident in saying i want that guy developing Trubisky. He is like a qb guru, really hope Pace considers him.

    I trust pace more than McDaniel so no

    Personalky i don't even want nosh as a Head coach. So to have him force pace out would be worse to me.

    Nosh sounds like it could be a ****** college nickname of his. Like gnarly josh, Gnosh. Forcing pace out of his own team would be a total gnosh move

    Other than that, interesting.

    I had the same thought after watching a few videos. Wonder how well he relates to players. Doesn't come across as the most personable guy. But what has done with terrible QBs over the years is extremely impressive, and he did alright in Cleveland (9 wins in two years, so par for the browns and hopefully not much longer for the Bears).

    He reminds me a lot of Thibs, personality wise. The dude is all energy all the time, and lives and breathes football. He's young, he works out, and his passion for the game is exuberant. I think he's personable but just extremely demanding as well. He wants perfection and isn't satisfied with anything less....and after John Fox, that's the type of guy you want, IMO. I'm not positive that he's ready for a HC gig, but I do think he will be a HC one day. His resume with QBs is impressive though, and Trubs development is priority number 1 for the Bears. If he could bring Pettine on as DC it would be hard for me to prefer anyone else other than Harbaugh (who I don't think is likely).

    Edit: I just realized you were talking about Shurmur. I was talking about DeFillipo. I think Shurmur definitely deserves an interview. He's an interesting candidate.

    I latch on to a new guy every other day, seriously the top of my list has changed 4 times.

    1.) Josh McDaniels- such a offensive mind. I do think he learned a lot from the Denver debacle, at least he is saying all the right things. If Pace is looking to establish his Payton relationship, MCD will have an legitimate on the roster construction. The Ben McDaniels hire last off-season makes me wonder, is that a Pace move planned this far ahead?

    2.) People are still sleeping on Darrell Bevell. Other than one call in the SB, dude really has a stellar resume. A former QB. He built Russel Wilson, was an excellent QB coach for Farve and the OC in MN for 4ís time there. I previously dismissed him, he is back high on my list. An OC that calls plays and has a SB ring. Plus, use Howard like Lynch. Speculation that Childress is his OC.

    3.) Harbaugh is a pipe dream. But Iíd take it. Same w/ David Shaw- LOVES Palo Alto, Chicago winters are not for him.

    4.) Matt Patricia Seems like such a Pace guy, just on the defense. Super into the analytical type of coaching and study of Football. Intellectual. Seems like a guy who would have heavy hands all over the team, not just on the defensive side. A real head coach type.

    5.) Harold Goodwin is a legitimate contender. Has a stellar resume under Bruce Arians. Former offense of line coach, more of a Players coach I imagine.

    6.) Matt LaFleur- really like the guy, has legitimate credentials. Worked under Kubiak, Jay Gruden, The Shanahans, and McVay... not a bad coaching tree. I still think heís a year away. Just a bit green.

    7.) DeFillippo: I donít like the idea of hiring position coaches as head coaches. Seems like a jump too far, too much immediate responsibility, sets the guy to much up for failure. Everything Iíve read says he is more thought of than Reich though.

    7/8.) Carmichael and Shurmur- I have both these guys in the same category, Very good resumes and very good backgrounds. I donít think either of them have the personalities for Chicago football. Just donít seem then as the strong leader it takes to be successful in this city.

    I can't get on board with McDaniels. Maybe he's changed and he's saying all the right things but really, he was so far one way I'm not sure if you can really change your character as much as he wants people to believe. Also, coming from the BB coaching tree frightens me a little bit. It seems like when coaches leave the Pats, they never live up to their hype.

    I do get the concerns about Flip being a position coach and that it's a big jump but he does have OC experience. Let's not forget the Eagles blocked teams from interviewing him for OC positions last year. At some point you just have to determine, does this guy have what it takes to be a HC and is he the best guy available to develop Trubisky? I think he's near, or at the top of the discussion in regards to both of those questions. He just seems to have that obsession and passion for football and for success overall. He comes across as super detail oriented and a perfectionist. I love all of those traits and I think they're even more important than multiple year experience as an OC. If you told me right now he would come along with Pettine as DC than sign me up and don't even bother interviewing anyone else.

    Now, he could backfire and could turn out to be a dud hire...but other than perhaps Harbaugh (who isn't necessarily available), there isn't one sure fire candidate out there. The Bears need to be progressive and find not only a passionate leader, but one who could get the most out of Trubisky and an offense. Flip just seems like a guy who commands respect because of his work ethic, passion, and attention to details. He also seems like a pretty relatable guy. Young, works out, high energy etc.

    I think DeFilippo gets an OC position this year and quickly parlays it into a HC position. Heís finally out of contract and the Eagles canít screw him.

    For me, he just isnít proven enough. His work with Wentz is really the only stand out accomplishment on his resume. I donít give much credence to working for the Browns. You canít sell that to fans. You have to give him his due, but he is working w/ 2 other QB specialists also. His focus right now is completely on the quarterback, itís going to be so much different as the head coach.

    Heís a football guy, thatís 100% apparent. My last thing, heís never won anything. I could be wrong but I think this is his first time ever going to the playoffs.

    And I could be completely wrong...

    ^If DeFilipo's contract is up after this season, maybe we could get one of the stud D head coaches (like Patricia) who could bring him in as OC. That'd be the perfect opportunity for him to parlay success into a HC position if he can develop Trubisky.

    I think our offense is very close to being a really good unit. All we need really are WRs and a competent coaching staff who can get the most out of Mitch.

    I've been hearing alot of Teryl Austin talk, what is everyone's thoughts on him? Would rather have Patricia if Pace goes the defensive route in all honesty.

    Heís a bit unproven but Iím not sure what McDaniels really proved by coaching Brady and that offense. Anyone who is afforded that position will succeed.

    He made Kyle Orton look like a top 10 QB for a season.

    There are certainly red flags with McDaniels, but IMO there isn't a perfect candidate out there either. No matter who the Bears hire is going to come with some kind of risk.

    Not interested. I was an offensive minded head coach. Patricia is the only guy outside of the realm of that mold id consider.

    Both McDaniels and Patricia are at the top of my list honestly. I like both a lot.
