Replacing Fangio will be delicate challenge for Bears

There are plenty of the next chapters coming, but when John Elway named Chicago Bears defensive coordinator Vic Fangio as the Broncos' 17th head coach, he chose experience, the benefits of a long résumé and a track record in the National Football League that is now into its fourth decade.

In hiring his fourth coach in six seasons, Broncos general manager John Elway returned to his first blueprint. In his final season leading the Bears defense, they ranked as the No. 3 overall defense while boasting the NFL's best run-stopping defense.

Heading into Tuesday's Fan War Room, "Stokley and Zach" co-host Brandon Stokley said of the two frontrunners for the Denver Broncos head coaching job that he had been leaning toward Mike Munchak over Vic Fangio.

The gig is Fangio's first as head coach after 19 years of serving as a defensive coordinator in the NFL. The Broncos collected 44 sacks, a spike from 33 in 2017, and netted 28 takeaways, fifth best, and 11 more than last season. So, instead of going with a fresh-faced offensive-minded coach in the mold of the Rams' Sean McVay, he zeroed in on the grizzled teacher who's more like his first head coaching hire, John Fox, or the Chiefs' Andy Reid.

According to Fangio's bio page on the Bears' website, he's spent 32 years in the NFL. Paxton Lynch, Trevor Siemian, Brock Osweiler and Case Keenum were all next in a line of quarterbacks not named Manning that Elway failed to win with, and the inability to get the position right factored into Vance Joseph's firing after just two years as head coach. The Bears have improved each season under Fangio.

No, but he's still adapting, that's how it is. "It's great to see because we moan about English players getting their chance". Liverpool FC are still looking to take home their first major trophy under Klopp since his appointment back in October 2015.

"He's an evil genius", Mack told NFL.com in November. "I feel like the Bears definitely got a defense that can go all the way".
