Chicago Bears Head Coach Candidate: Josh McDaniels – Stock falling slightly

Last Week: Stock Neutral

The Chicago Bears would look weird having Josh McDaniels as their head coach. I just cannot see it. That said, he is one of the top names out there and has been discussed multiple times over the years. Will he finally make a move to leave New England or is he still waiting out his time for when Bill Belichick decides to retire?

The Patriots are coming off back-to-back losses. The offense has been up and down, but that is partly due to inconsistent play by rookie quarterback Mac Jones. Josh McDaniels has done a great job putting Jones in positions to succeed this season, however, at times the quarterback will need to make plays. Jones has not been able to do that the last two weeks.

Two weeks ago, McDaniels and the Patriots only put up 17 points vs the Colts. Mac Jones threw for 299 yards and two touchdowns, but he also threw two interceptions and completed only 57% of his passes. I think McDaniels is a solid play-caller, but I just do not trust him running a full football team. I am personally not interested.
