Jason Smith: "The first time head coaches, when they come from one side of the ball, that's the side of the ball they concentrate on. You bring a first time head coach that's a lights out defensive coordinator, it's gonna take them awhile to get the offensive nuances of the game, and they're gonna rely on whoever they hire as their OC to develop a QB. What's the most important thing you need to do in Chicago? Develop Justin Fields. And you go and hire a defensive coordinator."

The Chicago Bears hired Colts defensive coordinator Matt Eberflus as their new head coach on Thursday afternoon, as most figured the Bears would pair an offensive mind with their young QB Justin Fields. Listen to Jason Smith and Mike Harmon discuss the move, explaining why maybe we should have expected this from the Bears franchise.
