5. Matt Eberflus, Head Coach
If ever there was such thing as "head of the kids table," Matt Eberflus would wear that name plate proudly. The Bears were supposed to be better this year. Fans were promised an improved offense and a defense that showed life.
Now, I'll give Eberflus a little credit for the defense improving under his watch, following the departure of Alan Williams. Chicago's defense has been especially good against the run, but they're still far from a perfect unit. The talent is there, but Eberflus still hasn't gotten the most out of them.
Decision-making has also hampered Eberflus. He's unwilling to take risks, as proven by the recent decisions he made against Detroit. At this point in the season, what else does he have to lose other than his job? It's time for Eberflus to buck up and start making big boy choices rather than settling for mediocrity. Yes, Cairo Santos has been a godsend. But, he's not scoring touchdowns.
Also, have you watched any of Eberflus' press conferences this year? Talk about a deer in headlights. He looks lost. He has no idea what to say to the hard-hitting, but valid questions from Chicago's media. We need a head coach that doesn't babble like a child. Until he's fired, get Eberflus a sippy cup and call it a day.
