I just don't see the reasoning for them going this route...I don't hate the hire, just trying to find the silver lining that translates onto the football field.
What i really like about the hire, is obviously his knowledge of the 3-4 lol would hate to see them try and switch back to a 4-3...but more importantly I think the chemistry will be awesome between the coaches and hopefully that resonates to the team.
It's on the field thoughts that make me skeptical...Fangio had a long resume of being a DC in the NFL with a loaded team before he came to Chicago...Pagano has only been a DC for one year in the NFL with one of the best ever loaded teams.
Which he has here! i get that as well...i just don't see the resume that says THIS is the guy...only time will tell and i hope he surprises me.
I think we'll end up really liking Pagano. I know I've wanted someone who is more aggressive and more innovative in their blitz scheme. Well shit...that's Pagano to a T! Take a look at some of his blitz schemes and think about the players he has at his disposal and tell me it doesn't excite the crap out of you!
I keep coming back to the fact that the Bears DC job right now is so attractive that the Bears organization could cherry pick the best-of-the-best D coaches to bring here. It's a young team with everything in place now to challenge for a super bowl title. They are champions of their division already. They have a charismatic young head coach & GM. For the Bears to choose Pagano tells us that they believe this guy is THE guy in the NFL (that's available) to bring in here to take the team to the NEXT level.
When I think about this, I am pretty pumped that we have Pagano coming here. Our worry will be that we keep him here for a few years. He will probably do well here and get a head coaching job sooner rather than later.
