The secret head coach of the Chicago Bears (not really).

One of my favorite coaches on this Chicago Bears staff is offensive coordinator Bill Lazor. I still wonder what he would be like if he were a head coach. The quarterback competition is going to be the most significant offseason talk for the Chicago Bears.

The scary part about that is if you have two quarterbacks that can start, you likely don’t have one quarterback. Without beating your head with more quarterback talk, I am going to skip writing about it for now because it will continue to be the talk until even when the season is over.

When asked about the run game design success, Bill Lazor shared how the more critical part of the running game design is having all of the pieces together and understanding what needs to be done each play to make it successful. Bill Lazor said, “This is our philosophy on how we are going to run the ball.” He stressed how you go through every element of a run game to make it successful from the team practices, individual practices, and technique.

Bill Lazor sounds like he will mold well with offensive line coach Juan Castillo. Castillo has been known to teach the same technique to players until it becomes muscle memory. Playcalling might have been something Bill Lazor was good at, but he seems to have a great understanding of what needs to be done in the run game. Running the ball is all about fitting players into specific roles and evaluating the player’s progress to see if the plays fit.
