1. The Chicago Bears head coaching job could be desirable in 2024
Matt Eberflus has done a poor job as the Chicago Bears head coach. The team may not fire him, but if they do, fans can be thankful that this looks like a pretty promising gig. First, as we noted, the secondary is in place. Only Eddie Jackson may leave, and that would free up cap space to franchise-tag Jaylon Johnson. Montez Sweat and Andrew Billings are building blocks up front, and the linebacker corps needs nothing added.
With DJ Moore, two tackles, and the freedom to make a decision at quarterback, the job looks good. Of course, the freedom to decide on Justin Fields comes with the two draft picks that will be in the top ten. So, a new coach can decide if he wants to use them to help Fields or use one to replace Fields.
You come in with control and enough pieces on the roster to start to build. Should the Chicago Bears make a move at head coach just because the job looks so much more attractive now than it did two years ago? Bears fans can be thankful that it looks that way.
