QB Andy Dalton was particularly awful in a four-interception, five-sack showing. How long will he be allowed to continue to struggle like that before the Bengals would consider making a move to backup AJ McCarron?
After three straight seasons of not topping the six-win mark, the Bears have finally had enough of John Fox. Although the team dumped Fox, they decided to hold on to general manager Ryan Pace, who was given a four-year extension on Jan. 1, which now gives him the opportunity to continue building his vision of a winner in Chicago despite posting a 14-34 record over the last three seasons.
The first decision Pace made under his new deal was the hiring of Nagy as the team’s new coach. The upcoming season will mark Nagy’s first year as a NFL head coach. Before signing on with the Bears, Nagy served as an offensive coordinator (2016-17) and quarterbacks coach in Kansas City (2013-15). Before that, Nagy worked with the Eagles, where he held various jobs since first being hired by the team in 2008.
Matt Patricia is a virtual lock to be the next coach of the Detroit Lions, CBS Sports NFL insider Jason La Canfora reports.
Patricia, 43, has served as the Patriots defensive coordinator for the last six seasons, and in each New England finished in the top 10 in points allowed. That includes 2017, a season where the Patriots took a lot of heat for a defense that gave up plenty of yardage but still finished fifth in points allowed.
Patricia will join a Lions team with a familiar face on the personnel side in general manager Bob Quinn, who spent 16 years in the Patriots organization before being hired by the Lions two years ago. Patricia will be taking over for Jim Caldwell, who went 36-28 in four seasons with the Lions that included two trips to the playoffs and three years above .500.
Capers had been with the team since 2009, but the Packers had not ranked inside the top 10 in yards or points allowed since his second season as coordinator. The Green Bay Cheap Authentic NBA Jerseys defense struggled with injuries the last couple seasons, but the team Cheap Blank Hockey Jerseys apparently feels that it’s time to change the voice giving the instructions on that side of the ball.
