Jahns on the Nagy Hiring
“AJ After Dark” wrote the best piece of Bears journalism since Wiederer’s piece on the Trubisky dinner in North Carolina. There were a dozen pieces of information in article worth noting but here is my favorite:
As the eight-seat jet descended, Phillips said it became the most frightening flight of his life. Pace said the plane was “thrashed.”
“At one point, I looked back, and Ted’s glasses flew off his head,” Pace said.
Said McCaskey: “What’s that Audie Murphy movie? ‘To Hell and Back’? ”
It was scary as hell.
“I was thinking to myself, ‘OK, if this thing goes down, it’s probably better that it’s on the descent because there is less fuel,’ ” Pace said.
“Ted was thinking, ‘Well, I can see the tree line, so this might be survivable.’
“George was thinking, ‘Oh, man, I should have laid out the full succession plan before we got on the flight.’ ”
They made it and were soon off to Foxborough, where Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels was interviewed past midnight.
“As the plane is coming to a halt, Ted yells at me, ‘Ryan, this better be worth it!’ ” Pace said, laughing. “It was just insane.”
What do I find particularly interesting here?
