The new year of 2022 is going to be a make-or-break season for the Chicago Bears franchise. They arguably have their most talented quarterback prospect in franchise history ready to break out, and decisions to make about how they will build the team around him.

With that in mind, the Chicago Bears need to follow these resolutions to ensure that they not only have a happy new year but that they look back at 2022 as the year the franchise changed.

3. Start at the top of the totem pole

Matt Nagy has proven that he may deserve to be let go, but no Bears fans should look at Nagy and say that he is the only problem. The issues do not start at him and go much higher. If the team does not look higher, they are going to be stuck forever.

Okay, no one is going to get George McCaskey to sell the team, but when looking at the top-of-the-line decision-makers, the Bears have to start with Ted Phillips. Ever since Phillips stepped into his role the operation has been a disaster.

He appears far too involved for a person who has overseen far too many bad decisions. Who the team hires and what they decide to do next is huge, and it cannot just be a quick change of coach. They have to change the person hiring the coach.
