Waldron deserves a lot of credit for resurrecting Geno Smith’s career.
He has been the Seattle Seahawks offensive coordinator for three seasons and comes with more play-calling experience than Slowik.
Waldron worked for Sean McVay in Los Angeles before he went to Seattle. Ties to one of the best offensive minds in the game and an independent track record of success make him a strong candidate.
Being trusted by Pete Carroll to run the offense also helps boost his resume.
This is another coaching candidate who is not going to come into the building boasting he worked with a legend and therefore all quarterbacks must play that way.
Instead, he takes what is given to him and puts together a winning game plan. That is something the Chicago Bears could use in their building.
Local radio personality Danny Parkins listed Waldron as his top choice for the job. Maybe Ryan Poles will do the same.
You are probably wondering why is Detroit Lions offensive coordinator Ben Johnson not listed. Please scroll down to the related link below where his candidacy has already been discussed.
Press Taylor has not been mentioned yet and he should be.
Taylor was with the Philadelphia Eagles when Carson Wentz was good. So far, things are going well for Trevor Lawrence in Jacksonville.
Taylor has a track record of developing quarterbacks. Jaguars head coach Doug Pederson tabbed Taylor to call plays this season. Although, how many plays Taylor has called is unknown.
Still, Taylor has an impressive resume with a track record of developing quarterbacks. Once more, he is another coach who would enter the building not thinking that just because he was around a great quarterback, that makes him a genius.
The problem is he comes from the Andy Reid tree. Although, he is on the Doug Pederson branch, so there is a track record of success and no hint of possibly being another Nagy.
What the Chicago Bears can no longer afford to do is over-promote a defensive coordinator. Then again, they must stop elevating a weak offensive guy too.
