Monday night, the Chicago Bears brought home Matt Eberflus' first divisional win of his tenure in the Windy City.

Despite the Bears winning, though, fans have still had enough of offensive coordinator Luke Getsy. At one point during this game, Getsy called three screen passes in a row, all to D.J. Moore. On the night, Justin Fields attempted 17 passes at or behind the line of scrimmage.

At one point, it seemed the Bears completely abandoned the run game and the score was only 3-0. It looked like Fields had chains on him the entire night. Getsy refused to call throws down the field, and fans are fed up.

This coming offseason, Chicago has to make major changes, including firing Getsy. When they do so, these are four of the very best candidates to come in and replace him.

1. Chris Foerster, Run Game Coordinator/Offensive Line, San Francisco 49ers

First up is Chris Foerster, who might end up seeing some head coaching interest this offseason. But, if he isn't quite ready, he'd be a great candidate to become an offensive coordinator. Now, this might scare some Bears fans because we were promised more of a Kyle Shanahan type of offense when Luke Getsy was hired.

However, Foerster is a big part of what Shanahan does and has had more of a hand in the offense than Getsy ever did in his previous gigs. One thing I'd be intrigued to watch is Foerster getting his hands on a running quarterback, because for the most part, he hasn't had that in San Francisco. Brock Purdy isn't nearly as mobile as Fields, so that adds another element for Foerster to work with.

Foerster comes from the league's no. 7 rushing offense and having worked with a quarterback that leads the league in quarterback rating. I'd say Bears fans would kill to have that kind of balance.
