DECEMBER, 2020 -- After listening to sportscasting sycophant Jim Nantz slobber all over Patrick Mahomes and Tom Brady for three-plus hours late Sunday afternoon as if they were the only players on the field that mattered (If only he could hear himself), and hearing him lament about how it 'may be the last time!' that Mahomes has a chance to play against Brady (Guess what, Jim? He's never played against Brady, never will!), I was enjoying Green Bay's thrashing of Chicago in the Sunday night NBC game. Aware of how Chicago had the heaviest pass-percentage play ratio in the NFL (only 32.8% runs), and how very bad it is for a team with a very good defense, that plays in a cold-weather city, to be sporting an offensive trait like that, it stood to reason that playing against the Packers on the road would produce an early deficit of 3-27 for the Bears, a happy Green Bay margin that eventually withstood garbage time and lazy defense by the leading favorite (something that seems to be becoming rarer in football these days). Offensive-minded head coaches who call their own plays can be really difficult to put up with. They are usually the worst coaches in sports, standing there with their heads up their play charts. There are exceptions that prove the rule, of course. Sean Payton with the Saints, Sean McVay with the Rams. Andy Reid did not become Super Bowl-smart until Mahomes showed up. And yes, Doug Pederson won the Super Bowl in his first season with the Eagles, but he certainly has not appeared to become any smarter since then, has he? Adam Gase, 0-11 with the Jets. Zac Taylor, 2-9-1 with the Bengals, calling pass play after pass play and getting promising rookie QB Joe Burrow hit a lot until his knee took a bad blow and gave out. Bill OBrien with Houston was so bad they fired him early! Matt Nagy came to Chicago with 'his offense' -- which was pretty much lifted from Andy Reid but without the superior execution of the Andy Reid-coached players -- to ruin the defense-first blueprint of the Chicago Bears franchise, just like Ben McAdoo came to the New York Giants to ruin theirs.
