    I'll be the devil's advocate here. Ed Reed - fantastic player, generational level no doubt. First ballot HOF, etc, etc.

    He had one season as an assistant DB coach and was not retained, nor hired again after that regime was canned. Why are we so sure he'll be a great coach exactly?

    Idk id anyone thinks they will be good. But would love to have HOF players in the ears of our young guys.

    Give him a BS tittle like the assistant to the secondary coach.

    And a big no THANK YOU on Ray Ray.

    The dude is annoying and speaks like a moron. Even teammates of his questioned his speeches. They never made sense.

    Also, I'd rather have a woman beater playing than a murderer coaching on this Bears team.

    Fair query.

    Let me assert that I am not in any sense sure that Ed Reed will/would make for a great coach. I certainly don't think he's ready to jump into a DC role or anything like that.

    A not insignificant part of my personal want comes from being a nearly two decade fan of Miami, wherein he was not only part of, but arguably the single largest part of, the team that first sparked my interest in college football as a 12 year old.

    On top of that - if he were to take a role like DB's coach, it's hard to imagine him having any non-positive impact. He is the most invested, meticulous, relentlessly hard working player of his era. He's been publicly identified by Bill Belichick as the best and most difficult to account for defender of his entire coaching career. That's Bill Belichick. Bill Belichick coached Lawrence Taylor.

    It's true to a degree that you can't necessarily coach instincts and nobody on the planet has instincts like Ed Reed. But you can coach everything else. You can coach effort, you can coach preparedness, you can coach relentlessness. And that's before even diving into the X's and O's of playing the DB positions, of which Reed has nearly limitless insight.

    So in summation.....big Ed Reed guy. Real big. Want him here. A whole lot.

    And yes Ray Lewis, also a Miami guy, kind of an idiot, probably a murderer - no thanks.

    I personally think Eddie Jackson has similar instincts and I think Reed could really help him take another step.

    Welp, Donatell's gone... not surprising, but it's probably going to be an entirely new defensive staff.

    Yep. Kinda sad. Not that this group shouldn't be great with anyone, but it would be nice to have consistency. Hopefully Pagano works out and he can be our DC for the rest of this defense's peak.
