First of all, happy new year Chicago Bears fans. I hope you and your family had a terrific holiday season despite a horrific snowstorm and thousands of flight cancellations, leaving many stranded in the airports.

As a first-time contributor to this site, it was an incredible honor to have my work posted and read by many Bears fans across the country and around the world. I do not take that for granted.

It was not easy watching and having to write about this team despite getting hired late in 2022. We all knew this season was a total rebuild. After watching the Lions game, the talent level is so bad, it is time all of us acknowledge this rebuild will take much longer than many expected.

Our page will continue to offer great coverage of the Bears as they enter the most important offseason in team history. With more than $100 million dollars in cap space and a top-two pick in the draft, the Chicago Bears must be improved by this time next year. And let’s not forget Ted Phillips will be retiring soon.

As bleak of a season as the Bears ever had in recent memory, the season is finally over after the Vikings game on Sunday. There will be a light at the end of the tunnel no matter what. We hope you will continue to support our page throughout the offseason.

Here are my seven thoughts following the 41-10 loss to the Lions.
