Chicago Bears Stock Report: Week 15 update on potential head coaches
Chicago Bears Head Coach Candidate: Greg Roman – Stock Up Slightly
Last Week: Stock Neutral
If you are keeping track, Brian Daboll, Kelen Moore and as of now, Byron Leftwich are all in my top five. The key to a top-five list is that you can only have five (Said in my best John Madden voice). As of last week, Greg Roman was in my top five as well. Things have not changed as Roman remains on that shortlist, granted he’s dropping lower and lower.
Roman is nothing like Matt Nagy when it comes to trying to force his roster to play his scheme. Instead, he caters his scheme to his players and their strengths. This is what we have been screaming for here in Chicago for years! In fact, he showed it in Week 14 after Lamar Jackson went out with a sprained ankle. Insert the backup quarterback Bears fans are all too familiar with — Tyler Huntley. Roman was able to help make Huntley look like an All-Pro at times.
Huntley finished throwing for 270 yards and a touchdown. He completed 71% of his passes and even ran for 45 yards on seven carries. This is what Greg Roman does though. Justin Fields would look great in a Greg Roman offense, but can he be more than an offensive coordinator? Can he actually be a head coach? I’d be willing to interview him and possibly give him that opportunity.
