Guys and gals, after a crazy day at Halas Hall, let's get back to football talk, shall we? Last season, we saw Ryan Poles make not only one, not two, but three trades leading up to the NFL trade deadline. Poles shipped Roquan Smith and Robert Quinn to playoff contenders while sending a second-rounder for Chase Claypool. I would not be surprised if Poles looks to pull the trigger again if things are not going well for the organization. The Chicago Bears are sitting 0-2 on the year and will face the defending Super Bowl champions on Sunday. An 0-3 start is highly likely.

Following the Chiefs, the Chicago Bears face off against a much-improved Denver Broncos team. What is looking like an easier schedule could still result in a 0-4 start. There will not be coming back from that in regards to post-season hopes. That said, not many believed that was in the cards anyway. Losing four games in a row after losing 10 consecutive games to finish out the year last season would be a fireable offense though. Alan Williams might be gone as the defensive coordinator, but I'd have to think Luke Getsy could lose his job or at least play-calling duties too if that occurred.

Ryan Poles should consider trading these Chicago Bears by the deadline

Now, if the Chicago Bears are struggling, then I could see Ryan Poles looking to make a move or two again. I'm getting ahead of myself here as the NFL trade deadline isn't until October 31, 2023. That's right, we could see some "trick or treat" action within the NFL. There are actually six players whom I could see Ryan Poles considering trading, but some are an either/or situation.
