    Are we mad at Joe D now? Harris proved that with the right guy back there and a bit of blocking, special teams was much improved.

    Once we got over the idea that we HAD to use Felix and Dez (thanks in part to our GM/Owner's wishes), things improved greatly.

    I'd like him to stay personally, but I don't NEED him to stay.

    Interesting insofar as it weakens a conference rival. We need fewer Lovie Smiths and more Joe DeCamillises head coaching NFC teams. If we can't win our way to the playoffs we can sabotage all our wild-card challengers until we get in!

    I think you're forgetting how long DeCamillis has been here (Wade fixture) and how bad our special teams have been. And are you seriously implying Jerry was the arbiter behind taking so long to find a decent return man? That is a stretch at best, and I don't particularly like Jerry.

    im sorry but Decamillis isnt the problem with the special teams. Dallas organization just doesnt put a priority on special teams. Decamillis is a very good ST coach. Always has been. But Dallas basically told him here u have this get it done. Basically what they do with the OL. They hire very good OL coach and plug in guys and tell him make it work

    So what you're saying is we need more 'special teams drafts'?

    Sorry but your logic doesn't apply here. Special Teams guys are bottom of the roster fringe players on every team. Part of the ST coach's job is to make sure that unit works together and works effectively, and that they can block on a kick or a punt. Nobody is getting special consideration or premiere players on their squad.

    I'm not going to argue about the special teams coach. I think Joe has a very minimal hand in what's wrong with this team.

    And yes, I am absolutely saying Jerry had a hand in Felix continuing to return even though it has been clear for years he is terrible at it.

    I know Jerry loves to meddle, but based on what? I'm genuinely curious. Was there an article or interview somewhere, or is it purely based on the fact Felix played at Arkansas and so did Jerry?

    I'll say about Coach Joe what I said about Garrett before. Perhaps he makes a better head coach than coordinator.

    Joe DeCamillis interview will be in Dallas on Saturday, not Chicago. Either way, it's a huge opportunity for him and well deserved.

    It's based on his repeatedly getting in front of the media and saying Felix was doing a good job and that his job and role were secure, you didn't see those posts throughout the season? Check Google.

    I have never believed Jerry cut the guy a break or drafted him because he went to Arkansas, so you're barking up the wrong tree on that one.

    I think The Count is referring to articles like this.

    I agree: the chances he's a better coach than Lovie anytime soon are slim. The Bears were stupid to let Lovie go.

    Please Bears, please take him.

    And for the record, the Bears firing Lovie was a total dumb arse move.

    I am vividly reminded of the exact same response here when New Orleans interviewed Sean Payton. *shakes head*

    Don't know whether to laugh or cry . . .
