Just to be a dick about this since I took so much horsefeathers..

Do we have enough of a sample size yet to determine that the Bears don't have an elite rushing game?

11th in YPG
8th in YPC

Also lousy in first downs achieved, fumbles lost, touchdowns, etc. Basically by no metric whatsoever have they shown to be elite.

I want my $40.

18-24 230 yards 2 td's and 1 int and I'd be good with Mitchell's first year

I just want Mitch to finish with:
60% completions - currently at 59.9%
More TDs than INTs - currently 7 of each
A QB rating higher than Wentz's rookie year- 79.3 for Wentz, Trubisky at 78.5

There are not enough hours in the day for Coach DeFilippo. Affectionately called Coach Flip, he’s the mastermind behind Wentz’s meteoric second-season rise and one of the hottest names on the NFL coaching circuit. Mike Pettine, ex-defensive coordinator of the New York Jets, recalls DeFilippo’s office light outlasting all others during late evenings in the Jets facility, where DeFilippo was the QB coach back in ‘09. When Pettine moved on to become the head coach of Cleveland, he hired DeFilippo in 2015 as his offensive coordinator.

While juggling acquired veteran QB Josh McCown and hotshot second-year QB Johnny Manziel, DeFilippo constructed one of Cleveland’s most prolific offenses: 4,156 passing yards (4th-most in franchise history), 2.0 INT % (2nd-best), and a 4,100 passing yard, 1,500 rushing yard season for the first time since 1986. In an effort to assist Manziel—who played far better under DeFilippo than he did in 2014 under then-Browns’ OC Kyle Shanahan—Flip installed semiweekly worksheets for his quarterbacks, to test their understanding of his offense.

To this day, DeFilippo hasn’t shaken the habit. As Sheil Kapadia of The Athletic writes:

Every Friday, DeFilippo hands his quarterbacks a test that also serves as a tip sheet. It’s 20 to 30 pages and about 55 questions with photos and text containing information about the upcoming opponent. If the defense is showing a certain look pre-snap, how should they adjust the protection? If Wentz reads zone coverage on a specific passing concept, where should he go with the ball? If a cornerback is playing a specific leverage, how is the receiver supposed to adjust his route?


DeFilippo’s boundless energy and youthful pursuits—he’s a notorious sneakerhead—harmonizes with young quarterbacks specifically, adding to his appeal as a potential hire for rebuilding NFL franchises. In his years as an NFL QB coach/offensive coordinator, DeFilippo has worked with JaMarcus Russell, Mark Sanchez, Terrelle Pryor, Derek Carr, Johnny Manziel, and Carson Wentz—all in their rookie seasons. The careers of a few names listed may not impress, but DeFilippo hasn’t gotten more than two seasons with a single quarterback in his career. What he can concoct with some stability remains to be seen.


Much more at the link.

Hes a QB coach, i doubt the Iggles could block a move up. That being said, he and Pace would be one of the youngest GM/HC combos in the league

They 100% can block him from any non HC job, coordinator or otherwise. The only way they couldn't would be if his contract was up.

John Brown would be a guy I’d look to add for that and re-sign Inman. Brown, Landry, Inman and a draft pick and a few Cruz/Wright type vet signings would be a intriguing WR corps imo

Going to have to draft + sign a guy since no fringe guy emerged this year.

if anyone is wondering why i've soured somewhat on lafleur, it's for an extremely meatbally reason. i saw some press conference clips of him and he seemed very meek and nervous, which i guess reminds me of the trestman experience and how disastrous it was that he was such a weirdo. i'm not sure if that's unfair to him or not, but he didn't project a vibe of head coach material.

Depends where others fall, but they lose most tiebreaker, so 9 is probably a good guess.
