Gale Sayers Jersey

The January hiring carousel of the NFL marches on with position coaches. On Monday Chicago Bears T-Shirts , the Bears announced that they have hired Ted Monachino to be their new outside linebackers coach. Monachino, 52, was set to take over as Kansas State’s defensive coordinator for the 2019 season as a recent hire. He evidently could not pass up working with Bears defensive coordinator Chuck Pagano again: a man he goes way back with.Monachino previously served as a Pagano disciple when he was Colts defensive coordinator under the then head coach from 2016-2017. Monachino’s Indianapolis defense was nothing to write home about as it was a paltry 24th and 31st in DVOA in both seasons, respectively. Fortunately, he won’t be coordinating the defense in Chicago quite obviously. Where the Bears’ new outside linebackers coach really made his hay was with the Ravens as their linebackers coach from 2010-2015. It is there where Monachino first connected with Pagano, who was the Ravens’ secondary coach from 2008-2010 before eventually being promoted to defensive coordinator in 2011. Thanks in large part to Monachino’s individual guidance, players like edge rusher Terrell Suggs amassed 88 quarterback hits, 70 tackles for loss, and 49 sacks over the course of those six seasons (Suggs only featured in 63 games due to injury). A 2011 Defensive Player of the Year Award for Suggs was the cherry on top of a marvelous stint of play. Inside linebacker C.J. Mosley, a Baltimore 2014 first-round pick and another Monachino prodigy, was also voted a Second-Team All-Pro and Pro Bowler as a rookie. The four-time Second-Team All-Pro and four-time Pro Bowler in Mosley has since evolved into one of the NFL’s premier inside linebackers. What this boils down to is some of Baltimore’s premier players outside of the customary Ray Lewis and Ed Reed shining both due to talent and fantastic coaching. Monachino gets to start anew in the NFL with Khalil Mack and Leonard Floyd as his primary responsibility. It’s quite the situation to walk into and be welcomed back with into the pro ranks. After a blockbuster trade that sent him to Chicago from the Raiders, Mack finished the 2018 season with 12.5 sacks: third most in a single season in Bears history, as both the top campaigns are held by Hall of Famer Richard Dent. Mack, inarguably one of this generation of football’s best defenders , has the challenge to take his game to an even higher level under Monachino ... if that’s possible. Whoever was going to be his position coach, Mack was probably going to be great anyway because he’s, well, a great player. Where Monachino’s Bears hire gets far more interesting is with Floyd, especially when considering that Mack is an all-worldly talent that can excel with anyone’s mentorship. The Bears’ 2016 first-round pick, Floyd has just 15.5 sacks over 38 starts in three seasons. While he came on extremely hot to close this past year, enough to earn his fifth-year option, you’d be hard-pressed to say Floyd has reached his potential as a defender when it comes to production. Injuries have curtailed a good deal of what Floyd’s been capable of: 2018 was the first year he played all 16 games, and that was with one healthy hand to start the year. General manager Ryan Pace, head coach Matt Nagy, and Pagano are expecting big things out of Floyd moving forward if the Bears are going to continue to evolve as a championship contender. If Floyd can be the dominant force he was over the course of the second half of the 2018 season for an entire year alongside a game wrecker like Mack, this Bears defense will be in fantastic shape. It’ll be on Monachino to make sure the Bears’ prized defensive piece in Mack continues to swallow offensive game plans whole, and to help one of their rising foundational blocks in Floyd finally reach his full potential.

Aaron Donald. Mitchell Trubisky. Jared Goff. Matt Nagy. Sean McVay. Star power galore, from the field to those wearing headsets. What more could you want?This might be the beginning of a beautiful friendship, er ... rivalry. It’s yet again the biggest game the Bears have played since three weeks ago against the Vikings. Wow, it’s been a long time. Here’s WCG’s individual staff picks for Bears-Rams on Sunday Night Football. Robert Zeglinski: Rams 34 Bears 30I think the Bears can square up well with the NFL’s best team, and will. But Sean McVay and Wade Phillips are better coaches than Matt Nagy and Vic Fangio, and that’s the difference.Lester A. Wiltfong Jr.: Rams 27 Bears 24The Rams’ offense will do enough to squeak out the win on the road. Aaron Leming: Rams 27 Bears 23For as much as I want to see the Bears win this game, this feels very similar to Weeks 6 and 7. A disappointing loss, followed by a loss to a slightly better team. Jacob Infante: Rams 34 Bears 30Even with Trubisky back on the field, the Bears will have a tough time matching up against one of the NFL’s elite team.Jack Silverstein: Bears 31 Rams 26The Prophecy is dead, but this season has always been riding the 1984 Corollary Prophecy, and as WCG friend Greg Braggs Jr. reminded us, some delicious parallels are cooking between this Rams game and the 2010 Bears-Eagles game. Time to dine.Sam Householder: Rams 28 Bears 23I think the Bears are going to hang with the Rams. The temperature could play a factor, as the coldest game that Goff has played in his career was against the Broncos earlier this year Dion Sims Jersey , a 23-20 Rams win. It could be lower-scoring than some think.Josh Sunderbruch: Rams 37 Bears 20The Bears go toe-to-toe with the Rams for three tight quarters. Then in the fourth quarter the game opens up and the Rams run away with it.Andrew Link: Bears 34 Rams 31The Bears actually match up pretty well with the Rams. I expect the defense to play angry, inspired football and the Bears offense to roll. Patti Curl: Bears 51 Rams 42The Rams try to go toe-to-toe with the Bears, but realize too late that they brought a hoof to a paw fight. Don’t poke the bear. ECD: Bears 34 Rams 30 Optimist Prime is going with the upset. The Bears have the cast to go toe-to-toe, and they’re playing on Soldier Field. Expect this, as usual, to come down to the final five minutes. WhiskeyRanger: Rams 30 Bears 27Look. I’d love to go all homer on this one. But, I don’t see the Bears pulling it out. Don’t get me wrong, they’ll give the Rams a run for their money with Trubisky back. But sadly, I get the feeling they’ll come up short in the end.Ken Mitchell: Bears 31 Rams 28Bears devour sheep every single time in the wild, so I’ll stick to nature’s way. Would somebody pass the potatoes? They go great with mutton.WCG Contributors: Jeff Berckes; Patti Curl; Eric Christopher Duerrwaechter; Kev H; Sam Householder; Jacob Infante; Aaron Lemming; Andrew Link; Ken Mitchell; Steven Schweickert; Jack Silverstein; EJ Snyder; Lester Wiltfong, Jr.; Whiskey Ranger; Robert Zeglinski; Like us on Facebook.
