John Fox could come in and have immediate success

Look no further than 2013 when Andy Reid took over for an underachieving Kansas City Chiefs. They were a talented team with no real QB, a strong running game and a beat up defense. You could argue the Chiefs had more talent on defense and that may be true. I don’t think the Bears are that far off. What does the Fox say?

There is a lot of work to be done. Can Jay Cutler be micro-managed into being more efficient? I have my doubts, and those doubts have doubts. Can the defense be fixed up enough? I personally don’t think the defense was as bad as the stats say. They didn’t get nearly enough from Jared Allen, and the linebacking corps needs an upgrade. If they got more consistent play on offense, it would take a lot of pressure off them and keep them fresh.

Special teams needs a total revamp. New coach and probably 6-10 new players. One of Jon Fox’s bright points is his ability to identify and secure good coaching talent. He has done so at his last two stops and I have faith he will do so again.

It will be interesting to see what assistants John Fox will bring if he is indeed hired as the next Bears head coach. He brings instant credibility and stability to a team that sadly lacked that last year. My preference was Rex Ryan, but you could argue Fox has an even more impressive resume–even though Peyton Manning did most of the heavy lifting over the last 4 years.
