1. The Chicago Bears are not moving on with their coaching search

The news hit Sunday that the Chicago Bears may have fired Matt Nagy if the team did not show up against the Seattle Seahawks. With the win, the Bears will probably be waiting to move on. While fans want blood, there usually is no benefit to moving on mid-season.

That is until this year when coaches and GM candidates are allowed to do Zoom interviews for two weeks prior to the end of the season.

The reality is that jobs will not be handed over via Zoom. On the flip side, every second of gathering information, and every meeting could help make the Bears have a more informed decision. Beyond that, why wait?

Next. This plan almost cost Chicago Bears. dark

It makes no sense to wait until after a loss to fire your head coach if you know that you will be firing, and you can use the time now to interview other candidates. The win buying Nagy another week of time is not going to help the Bears in the long term and that makes it even tougher to care about the win.
