Chicago Bears: 4 Changes that must be made after the season
By Joseph Herff
The Chicago Bears need to make some changes after the season ends
After starting the season 5-1, the Chicago Bears have now lost three straight to fall to 5-4. The last few games though have been arguably one of the most embarrassing offensive stretches in recent years. The Bears are averaging less than 17 points per game during this stretch against three defenses that are all below average.
Fingers can be pointed at almost everybody from the offensive line, to Nick Foles, to the weapons Foles has to work with, or to Matt Nagy. Regardless, the offense is a major dumpster fire that needs to be retooled from top to bottom after this season.
On the bright side, the Bears’ defense has been playing lights out. The scoreboard against the Tennessee Titans did them no justice as they completely shut down Derrick Henry and the fourth-ranked Titans’ offense. They have been elite in stopping the pass and middle-of-the-pack at stopping the run.
The Bears look to be on pace though to finish 8-8 like last season. They have no offense and the defense can only do so much. Even if this Bears’ offense was slightly below average, the Bears would make the playoffs. Sadly, that doesn’t seem to be the case barring a miracle.
If the Bears finish 8-8 or worse, they should blow it all up. They cannot be stuck in the middle in terms of getting draft picks while never making the playoffs. That is not a place to be and they need to get out of that. So if that is the case, what should the Bears do after this season?
