I think if he comes out he'll be a top 3 TE. Probably go right around the Bears 2nd pick (50).

Wow... no more Bourbonnais

EDIT - They're saying there will still be activities open to the public at Halas Hall, though.

Jimbo Covert and Ed Sprinkle become the 29th and league leading, 30th Hall of Famers from the Chicago Bears.

Well this is good news (even though the Ragone thing is still a mystery)

Yes, thats the curious part for me. DeFlippio goes from OC (and hc candidate) down two rungs to QB coach. Im not sure why he’s doing it, and Ragone should be dumped imo.

DeFilippo was a hot coach last offseason and I think he did good stuff with the passing game in Jacksonville. Their passing game eked out a positive DVOA behind a surprising Minshew and DJ Chark breaking out at WR

My pea brain explanation is Ragone must design schemes well but either sucks at coaching the schemes or coaching up the QB traits, like footwork or whatever.

DeFilippos is surprising. Has Philly hired a new OC yet? That seemed like a natural connection before.

i guess if Nagy is still calling plays, having the weaker coaches at OC and passing coord, and getting a better coach where they need the most help (QB) makes some sense.

thats all I got

I love Flip as a coach. Some mixed results the last few years. Got rave reviews for his work with Wentz, including his near MVP season before he got hurt. Foles was SB MVP with him as Eagles QB coach. Went to the Vikings and got fired before the end of a year because Kirk Cousins was trash. Cousins has since played better without him, with fewer valleys. Foles got injured Week 1, but then got benched when he came back so Flip couldn't rekindle that magic. But he did get a decent year out of a 6th round rookie, Gardner Minshew. Mixed results in 1 season as Browns OC. Raiders QB coach with Jamarcus Russell, who famously gave his QB a blank DVD and told him to watch the plays on it to see which ones he liked, to which Russell got caught lying that he watched it.

Mitch is getting all the help he can ever want to succeed. New run game coordinator and OL coach to try to improve that area. New OC who is a former QB coach. New QB coach, who has called played. Keeps Ragone, who was the QB coach. And a head coach who is a former QB coach. My only concern is a "too many cooks in the kitchen" situation. These guys have all worked with each other, though not all together at the same time.

Too many cooks would be a concern if Mitch was a rookie. He’s had his chance and needs to answer to the damn sous chef of thats who they bring in.

Three years in and his chiffonade is still sloppy. He frequently burns toast. But occasionally makes a perfect over medium egg.

Long overdue for Covert. I think you could make a case for Jay Hilgenberg too (if he isn't already in).

a day late seeing this, but man look at my guy Cutty out there slinging it and running for TDs a week before being labeled weak because he didn't look like he wanted to come back in with a blown up knee.

Seems like a big deal if they're comparing this signing to Wake's. Like Wake, this guy posted similarly crazy workout numbers before becoming a good player in the CFL. Could be a cheap plug and play add at CB for a team that could use one, probably means Amukamra is out

It wouldn't take much to beat Wake's deal. His contract with Miami at that time was like 1 mil/yr.
