The Chicago Bears have had quite the talent on their roster over the past 10 years, and since the 2010s are coming to an end, I thought I’d share my Chicago Bears All-Decade team from 2010-2019.
The 2010s will always go down as one of the most interesting decades in Chicago Bears history. They’ve had quite the talent over the last 10 years.
After a disappointing 7-9 season in 2009, Jay Cutler and Lovie Smith led the Bears to an 11-5 record and ended up winning the NFC North in 2010. They met Matt Hasselback and the Seattle Seahawks in the divisional round of the playoffs, where they went on to defeat them by a final score of 35-24.
On their quest to the SuperBowl, they ran into trouble as they met Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers in the NFC Championship game. Unfortunately, the Packers did end up defeating the Bears by a final score of 21-14. Despite the loss, the Bears still had an outstanding season after finishing 7-9 in 2009.
After 2010, they went on to have an 8-8 record in 2011 and missed the playoffs. After finishing 2012 at 10-6, the Bears fired Lovie Smith after nine seasons with the team and went on to hire former CFL head coach, Marc Trestman. Trestman in his first season with the Bears led the team to an 8-8 record and missed the playoffs once again.
The Marc Trestman experiment wouldn’t last long after finishing 8-8 in his first season and then led the team to a 5-11 record in 2014 which was there worst record since 2009. After firing Trestman the team also fired general manager Phil Emery. They brought in Ryan Pace to replace Emery and replaced Trestman with John Fox.
Three years with Fox was just brutal to watch, as he led the Bears to three straight losing seasons. Fox ended up coaching Mitchell Trubisky during his rookie season and it didn’t go too well. Pace fired Fox after the 2017 season and brought in Matt Nagy to help develop Trubisky.
During the last 10 years, the Bears have gone through four head coaches, Smith, Trestman, Fox, and Nagy who is still currently the Bears head coach, and have gone through three general managers, Jerry Angelo, Phil Emery, and Ryan Pace.
The past 10 years for the Bears were interesting, it featured a trip to the NFC Championship game and two NFC North division titles.
With the 2010s coming to an end, it’s time that I share my Chicago Bears All-Decade Team from 2010-2019. Enjoy.
