Now that I think about it this is brilliant. He probably never wants to kick for the Bears again, but because he is fully guaranteed $5m next year, there's a non-zero chance that Pace brings him back anyways (not a big chance though). Going on TV and talking about the abuse you receive from the fanbase is a good way to ensure your exit and as long as he doesn't say anything too bad he's in no jeopardy of losing his $5m.

The lesson here is: don't fully guarantee a large contract to a kicker who isn't elite

Potential Bears DC candidate and trash person, Gregg Williams, close to deal to be DC under Gase.

It's Pagano for DC. Looked the thought of Donatell, but was afraid he'd be too much like Vic, but not as good.

Pagano will likely be different but still good. HC experience is nice too with Nagy being relatively inexperienced.

Meh. Those IND defenses weren't too inspiring.

Wonder how much turnover there will be. I bet Donatell will be gone.

FWIW, he did have the number one defense in the league by DVOA in 2011.

Yeah, Ryan Grigson is more to blame for the defensive results than Pagano. He was a terrible GM.

As a head coach, I don't imagine he could focus on the defense as much as he was in charge of the entire team, and it was a team that just had the #1 pick and used it on a face of the franchise QB. So, I imagine a lot of Pagano's focus went toward Luck. His DC, Greg Manusky, was an experienced coordinator with 5-6 years experience so I'm sure he trusted him to handle things on that side....though Manusky was never really anything more than mediocre before, during and after his tenure with Pagano.

The defensive players drafted under Pagano in the first 3 rounds in his first 5 years in Indianapolis.

Bjorn Werner 1st round
DJoun Smith 3rd round
Henry Anderson 3rd round
TJ Green 2nd round

Then in his final year they finally draft 3 defensive players with their first 3 picks.....the year his QB missed the entire season and then they fired him.

I think the only bad thing about this hire, is the Bears will either have significant drop off in 2019 or Pagano will be a HC again in 2020.

Really cheering for the Raiders to choose San Diego to play their games next year since the Bears play the Raiders on the road. To me, there is no other option, so why it's not already a signed deal is beyond me.

Man Nagy was not too happy about our favorite kicker going on TV and he is 100% correct for being pissed off.
