Ryan Pace and the Chicago Bears choose to be too aggressive

Prior to Sunday’s loss to the San Francisco 49ers, Ryan Pace spoke on WBBM Newsradio 780. During his interview in the pregame show, Pace spoke about how he will be active in finding ways to potentially improve the team. He had this to say:

"“We’re always looking at ways to improve our team. This time of year there’s so much constant dialogue with all the other teams. It’s constantly ongoing. I think if something presents itself to make us better, we’ll always talk through it as a staff. It’s no different this week. We’ve made several trades this season, and our aggressive mindset will be ongoing.”"

Hearing this before Sunday’s game is not surprising. The team was 0.5 a game out of the Wild Card race entering that game. Had Chicago won, Ryan Pace and the Bears front office would be holding out hope that the team would make the playoffs this season. The problem is, even if they did win, their chances of winning a Super Bowl were slim. Now that they lost, their chances of making the playoffs have greatly diminished.

If Ryan Pace and the Bears were about to make an aggressive trade before the trade deadline, it better be a mind-blowing move that truly sets them on a winning path. The problem here is that they don’t have the draft capital to make another move as they did in 2018 for Khalil Mack. Even if they did have the draft capital, I don’t feel like this team is one player away from making a run. Being aggressive now is a mistake.
