An under-discussed case for the Chicago Bears firing Luke Getsy

The Chicago Bears are winning so much that it is going to be hard for the team to fire Matt Eberflus as their head coach. However, there will continue to be intense discussions about Luke Getsy as the team heads into the offseason. 

The Chicago Bears have made poor personnel decisions to help Luke Getsy

There is plenty of discussion about Getsy and the direction of the offense, Justin Fields, and his play calling in the red zone and after the first 15 plays. However, one serious issue is his influence on the personnel.

The Chicago Bears have a lot of flameouts from the Green Bay Packers on their offense, and that cannot just be a coincidence. Players who came into the Chicago Bears offense with Luke Getsy include Lucas Patrick, Equanimeous St. Brown, Marcedes Lewis, and Robert Tonyan. None of them have brought anything to the table in terms of helping out the offense. 

Lewis and St. Brown were the best signings of the two, and they are both best at blocking. Unfortunately, that has not been the case for Lucas Patrick. Robert Tonyan is going to have the worst year of his career with the Bears and will be playing for a different team next year.

These players were supposedly brought in to make the offense easier to run for the rest of the players. It is hard to see any impact. If anything, it speaks to the reality that Getsy is not looking for the best players but rather the perfect scheme that fits his exact plan. The best coordinators call plays for their players, not force players to fit their calls. The players on the Packers who should not return after this year show us just how much of an issue this is.
