The Chicago Bears have officially supplanted teams like the New York Jets and Houston Texans as the worst-run franchise in the NFL. This team is completely stuck in mediocrity and Ryan Pace once again proves that he cannot handle the pressure. Signing Andy Dalton to a one-year, $10 million dollar contract with incentives to reach $13 million is proof that Pace panicked as soon as he heard Russell Wilson would not be a trade option at this time.

Listen, if you are familiar with my content, I am one of the most positive Chicago Bears fans out there. I look to the positive and try to spin things in a way that is mostly viewed as a glass-half-full approach. I have no positive way to spin this though. I feel defeated and I understand that other fans must feel very underwhelmed.

I completely understand that the Chicago Bears (nor any team) can force the Seahawks to trade the likes of Russell Wilson. This is completely out of Ryan Pace’s hands. The problem is, Pace is at fault for putting the Bears organization into this position — him and the Bears brass that is George McCaskey and Ted Phillips.

If the team runs out Andy Dalton and Nick Foles with someone like Tyler Bray as the third-string option, then the team is truly going to be the laughing stock of the NFL. The team can even finish 9-7 and I would still find them worse off than the likes of the Houston Texans who might be forced to trade Deshaun Watson or even the Detroit Lions. This team is the definition of mediocrity, which is far worse. They give fans false hope every few years and stink the rest.

Andy Dalton might have some solid career stats, but is an average quarterback at best. While working with Bill Lazor, Dalton threw for just over 10,000 yards, 64 touchdowns and 31 interceptions. Bringing back Mitch Trubisky would be the same thing as signing Andy Dalton in my opinion.

It’s not just Andy Dalton, it’s the contract the Chicago Bears gave him

Look, should the Chicago Bears have waited and signed Dalton in a few weeks or months and locked him in on a relatively cheap deal, I would not be so heated. This is the complete opposite of that. This is Ryan Pace and Matt Nagy once again lying to the fanbase. I guess everything really was on the table — even making awful decisions after awful decisions.

Now reports are that the Bears probably won’t land Trent Williams either.

Quarterback options shrink as Andy Dalton is signed. dark. Next

This team is a joke, run by clowns. I cannot even get excited by the idea of Pace and Nagy being fired because McCaskey and Phillips are still going to be around. The McCaskeys need to get their heads out of their…and stop trying to live in the 80s. Andy Dalton is not the answer. I’m holding out hope they at least trade Nick Foles. If the team does not draft a first-round quarterback in April, I will be livid.
