The way this season has gone for the Chicago Bears, no one would be surprised if head coach Matt Eberflus was fired when everything is said and done.
Although there has been some improvement over the last few weeks, most fans would agree that Eberflus should not be safe. It seems that sentiment is not just shared by the fans, either.
There are sources and insiders out there who are also being told the Bears plan to move on from Eberflus, including Josina Anderson who recently reported a certain replacement candidate is being eyed in Chicago.
Current Washington Commanders offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy, formerly of the Kansas City Chiefs, could wind up being Eberflus' successor.
Bieniemy has been one of the brighter offensive minds in football over the last few seasons, and his work was especially on display while he was in Kansas City working with Patrick Mahomes. This year, though, Bieniemy has taken young quarterback Sam Howell and developed him enough to where he's currently the league's second-leading passer.
If Bieniemy came to Chicago and chose to keep Justin Fields around, the Bears could end up with a dream pairing thanks to the 2024 NFL Draft.
Eric Bieniemy could be given Marvin Harrison Jr. along with Justin Fields en route to a completely different Chicago Bears team next season.
The Bears currently hold the no. 1 and no. 5 selections in next year's draft, and most would agree that Ohio State wide receiver Marvin Harrison Jr. is the top player in this class, even over Caleb Williams.
Harrison is a 6-foot-4 wide receiver that does everything -- and I mean everything -- well. He holds no weakness.
The thought of being able to pair Harrison with D.J. Moore while giving Fields a truly unique offensive mind, in Bieniemy, is quite the tantalizing idea.
If Washington can boast the league's second-leading passer, with Howell under center, then Bieniemy could potentially work wonders with Fields and this arsenal featuring Harrison and Moore. Right off the bat, Harrison and Moore would become a top-five receiver duo in the NFL.
This is just a pipe dream for now, but in a few weeks it could be a whole lot closer to reality than we might think. If the Bears gave Fields everything he could possibly need to succeed, like Bieniemy and Harrison, there is a portion of the fan base that would erupt and be ready to say the words, "I told you so," at the drop of a hat next season.
