3. Luke Getsy

The Bears were feeling great about themselves going into the fourth quarter in Cleveland. holding a 10-point lead with a dominating defense, all Chicago had to do was hang on.

You wouldn't have needed to tell Luke Getsy that, either, because that's exactly how he operated in the fourth quarter. He played to simply "hang on," rather than putting his foot on the gas pedal. Getsy called a conservative game plan in crunch time, going with vanilla runs on first and second downs and putting Fields in a difficult position on third downs.

Let's also not forget, the Bears scored just one touchdown on offense in that game. Linebacker Tremaine Edmunds scored the other one on a pick-six. Getsy's offense accounted for 10 points against a defense that was severly banged-up.

It should be a certainty, at this point, for Getsy to have already lost his job. It's just a matter of time. He doesn't have any chance at salvaging his position in Chicago. But, if he ever wants an offensive coordinator gig again, he'll need to start showing some positive signs starting this weekend against the Cardinals.
