Chicago Bears Head Coach Candidate: Kellen Moore – Stock Down Slightly

Last Week: Stock Up

Last week, Kellen Moore’s stock was pretty high. The Cowboys were coming off a solid win over the New Orleans Saints. As this was the first article, I took the entire season into account. This is the starting point for Moore and the other candidates.

As of last week, Dallas was first in offense. Dak Prescott has struggled lately, but the team is still second in yards and second in points. A tough divisional game vs Washington had the Cowboys’ offense up and down with highs and lows. Could you imagine if the Chicago Bears offense was anywhere close to those rankings in a season on offense though? Pinch me when that consistently happens.

Let’s not forget, not counting the 2020 season since Dak Prescott missed most of it, the Cowboys’ offense was ranked first in yards in 2019 and sixth in points. To repeat, at only 32 years old, Moore has been one of the best offensive minds in the NFL and has done a great job not only with the Cowboys’ offense but Dak Prescott specifically.

Even in 2020, without Prescott (Andy Dalton was the starter), the team was 14th in yards and 17th in points. Again, we Bears fans would have loved to see this over the last four years. Kellen Moore is young and inexperienced, but maybe he could be the next great mind? Should the Chicago Bears take that risk though? Tough to tell.
