The Chicago Bears have yet to sniff the Super Bowl since 2006, but with Ryan Poles' connection to the most recent Super Bowl champions— the Kansas City Chiefs— he was watching the big game with the Bears in mind.
The Chiefs laid the blueprint for Chicago Bears' Super Bowl success
With what the Chiefs have been able to accomplish within the last half-decade, it'd be smart for the Chicago Bears to utilize some of the strategies the back-to-back champions have used to get where they are.
When Ryan Poles was hired to be the general manager of the Bears, it was likely with the idea that what he learned from his time with the Chiefs would transfer to a franchise that's yearned for postseason success.
And while that has yet to come, Poles was likely watching this Super Bowl thinking of how he could recreate this success for the Chicago Bears.
Starting as a scouting assistant in 2009, Ryan Poles worked his way up to the executive director of player personnel over the span of 13 years. More than a decade within a franchise like the Chiefs is valuable, and with the recent success of this franchise, the Bears could see their time coming soon.
The Chicago Bears have a long way to go until they're in the same conversation as the Chiefs when discussing Super Bowl success, but there's no doubt that the Bears could take away some hidden truths from the Chiefs' back-to-back Super Bowl wins.
