At one point, the Chicago Bears were feeling great about themselves, up 28-7 on the Denver Broncos in Week 4.

Quarterback Justin Fields had a phenomenal day for 90 percent of the afternoon, but people will be quick to blame him for his game-sealing interception and the fumble returned for a score.

After such a deflating loss, there is a lot of blame to go around. But, the majority of blame should fall on leadership, and not the players. Five people, specifically, deserve to lose their job after the Bears fell to 0-4 on Sunday.

1. Ryan Poles, General Manager

Let's start at the top, shall we? Ryan Poles had the most money to spend in free agency and a ton of draft capital to work with. We can talk all day long about misses in the draft, but the one big one that will haunt Poles forever is not taking Jalen Carter in the first round. This defense could look so different, especially for years in the future, had they taken Carter.

That's just one example, though. Poles has missed on a few signings and draft picks. This past offseason was supposed to be the one that counted. Last year, he gets a pass for. This year? The on-field product is unacceptable for a team that had so much hope after supposedly adding so much talent to the roster.

Aside from Week 4, you could argue both sides of the ball hadn't been fixed. Poles has not done enough, especially in the trenches, to build this team the right way. As an ex-offensive lineman himself, Poles has failed to understand how you win in this league.
