The Chicago Bears as a Team Need to Play for Each Other, Their Head Coach, and Their Quarterback

At this point in the year, it seems like the Bears' season will end after the final week of the regular season, but the drama only increases as this team transitions to the off-season. A big part of that offseason will be the decisions surrounding head coach Matt Eberflus and quarterback Justin Fields, who have both had their job security questioned throughout parts of this season by the media and fans alike.

In reality, it appears that each individual's job security may do beyond their on-field success this season, as both have shown to be key pillars in the team's current culture. This could all change by the beginning of next year, but for the time being, this team has an opportunity to rally behind two of their more prominent leaders and help them stay in Chicago for the foreseeable future.

Similar to how the Detroit Lions finished a season ago despite being eliminated from the playoffs, the Bears have a great opportunity to stack some wins at the end of this season to have something to build upon for 2024. If the players are truly behind Eberflus and Fields, expect a strong effort from a team fighting for their guys.
