Chicago Bears are not good, but also not bad

Well, Chicago Bears fans, it has yet to go as we had hoped. There has been a lot of talk of firing early and some late optimism from the offensive unit. The positive outcome is that the Chicago Bears will have two first-round selections next season. I need to start this long segment off with two things. The Chicago Bears have never fired a head coach or general manager during the season. Call it what you want, but expect it to stay the same. This team has done many things wrong for a very long time. The one thing they have done correctly is giving the staff the entire season to fix their mistakes.

I still wish Dan Quinn was the head coach for the Chicago Bears. He did find the offensive guru Kyle Shanahan in the first place. However, Luke Getsy will need some time to figure things out. I wasn't expecting a year-plus, but only some have it easy. The second thing I wanted to mention is how important this season is for Justin Fields. I wrote early in the off-season that nothing else matters because that is the most important thing.

Everybody is always ready for the Chicago Bears to win games, but the truth is, the team still needs to be ready despite almost beating the Denver Broncos and defeating the Washington Commanders. Great (Erik Carlson) quarterback play is still more important than anything else. If your quarterback can accomplish 350 total yards a game while leading drivers to points (30+), that offense covers up a bad defense.
