Chicago Bears Future
It looks like general manager Ryan Pace and head coach Matt Nagy at the very least will return for another season with the Bears. And If both are coming back, it might make sense to bring quarterback Mitchell Trubisky back as well. Chicago had a six-game losing streak beginning in Week 7, yet somehow they still found a way into the playoffs. Despite losing 21-9 to the Saints in their Wild Card game, the Bears had their moments.
In the first quarter, Trubisky lined up as a wide receiver, and he got the ball back on a double reverse and threw downfield to a wide-open Javon Wims in the endzone, who unfortunately let the ball slip through his hands. The Bears ended up that drive on a punt, and they didn’t score their first points in the game until a field goal midway through the second quarter.
If Wims catches that pass, perhaps the game would take a different turn because Chicago’s defense was able to limit the Saints’ potent offense to just 21 points on the day.
That should suggest that the Bears aren’t completely devoid of talent.
At some point, the Bears have to take a stand because firing everyone from the general manager down to quarterback isn’t exactly a recipe for building some continuity through the organization.
