Juicy Fruit In Chicago ?

NFL insider hints Sean Payton could be the next Chicago Bears head coach.

Head coach Sean Payton is experiencing a season unlike he has in the past with the New Orleans Saints. The Saints have now lost five straight after Thursday night's loss to the Dallas Cowboys at home.

The Chicago Bears have been rumored to part ways with head coach Matt Nagy. There were even rumors that Nagy was going to be fired after the Thanksgiving day matchup against the Detroit Lions. But Nagy seems to have held on to the job for, at least, the rest of the season .Adam Schefter

Sean Payton has contemplated a departure from the New Orleans Saints in the past. In 2019, he did re-sign with the team on a five-year contract extension. If he were to make the decision to leave, would the Chicago Bears be a team where he would want to coach?

Sean Payton's connection with Chicago
Some may believe that Sean Payton leaving the New Orleans Saints and coaching the Chicago Bears would be a head scratcher, but it makes sense. Sean Payton is an Illinois native, born and raised in Naperville, Illinois, and he attended Eastern Illinois University, where he played quarterback.

In 1987, an undrafted Sean Payton actually played for the "Spare Bears," the Chicago Bears team that was a compilation of replacement players during the NFL's strike.

Payton, who is seen as an offensive play-calling genius, could do wonders with a young quarterback of Justin Fields' talent. Drew Brees saw a complete turnaround in his career when he began playing with the New Orleans Saints and Sean Payton. The fact that Payton's offense with the Saints is currently struggling could be a deciding factor for Payton to leave a team he has been with for over a decade.

The Saints also don't have a solid option at quarterback at this point in the season. Jameis Winston was named the starting quarterback to start the season but a torn ACL cut his season short. Trevor Siemian then replaced him to no avail and utility quarterback Taysom Hill struggled against the Cowboys.

Where did Mickey Loomis grow up? They got any openings? I would rather keep the head coach who goes .500 or better typically even with tons of injuries and dead money than the GM who is a wizard at finding injury prone players and renegotiating contracts to maximize future dead money. But if Payton is married to Loomis, they better both go. Loomis with a different head coach would make the Lions look like the Patriots. Back to back 0-17 seasons would be very possible.

If coach wants a challenge he has one here. Injuries have sunk this season and finding Drew's
replacement will be a *****. What can be more challenging then that?

No. SP has had plenty of avg seasons and this will be at best a 6 or 7 win season. Itís just time to part ways. Heís not the offensive mind he once was. Heís become predictable and his love of ďproject players have ruined many classes.

You were ready to move on from him prior to this season when he was in the midst of winning multiple NFC South crowns and 12+ win seasons? Really? Like I say BOLD.

Payton doesn't seem particularly tethered to Illinois. This is a big reach.
