We have been trying to predict when the Chicago Bears will let everyone know that Matt Nagy will not be the head coach of the team in 2022. However, with every passing week, fans have now become numb to the situation making comments like “wake me up when it happens” or “I’ll believe it when I see it.” Honestly, I thought for sure it was going to happen after the loss to the Vikings on Monday Night Football. That was the second embarrassing loss on national TV in a row.

As many fans predicted, the wait-and-see approach is probably best. However, there is a new rumor that came out this morning by Ian Rapoport on NFL GameDay that the picture is getting clearer regarding Matt Nagy’s future. He also hinted that with the new rule in place, if the Chicago Bears lose to the Seahawks today, Matt Nagy could be gone as soon as Monday.

Will the Chicago Bears finally make history by firing Matt Nagy during the season?

There is clearly some speculation still here by Rapoport, but it does sound like he might have heard some inside rumblings. It does not seem like many have believed Matt Nagy had a chance to return in 2022 anyway, but hearing that the team might finally do something right and move on from their head coach now instead of waiting is great news. If this happens, it will be the first time in franchise history that the team didn’t wait until the end of the regular season.

Now the question will be, what do the Chicago Bears do with Ryan Pace? Most people do not believe that Ryan Pace should be involved in deciding who leads this team as the next head coach. Others are okay with it as long as he’s not the general manager but instead holds a front-office position. It will be difficult to interview and select a new head coach without a general manager in place though. This could end up being a predicament that leads to little change in 2022.

Hopefully it is just a matter of time that we finally see what is going to happen with this organization. The McCaskeys are not going anywhere, but could Ted Phillips finally be moved out of a position that oversees football operations? The hope here is that this franchise changes up its brand by shifting power to more football savvy minds.
