All of these guys have accomplished more than Gary. Holmgren runs the WC offense and Billick runs a version of it.
But it really doesn't matter because until BoB dies Gary will be HC because it would be to traumatic to make changes. (Sarcasm///)
BTW, Gary did a great job this yr playing with an injured QB with very little on the right side of the OL and an injured defense.
I thought Billick said he wasn't coming back.
Holmgren would make sense, he'd probably want GM/HC kind of authority meaning we'd probably get rid of Rick Smith too.
Lovie Smith..... are you on crack? I can't name one Bears team that was better than our 2012 team much less our 2011 team. I understand Lovie took a team to the Super Bowl, but I wouldn't want that team in place of our 2011/2012 team. We would be complaining about Lovie's aparent lack of ability to get an OC in Chicago. Sure, he's run the gamut & they've rarely got better, may as well leave an "inept friend of a friend" in that position.
Nick Saban. I doubt he's got the stones to give it another go. Unlike Gary, he knew he was in over his head.
I think next season is going to be very good for us.
