If there was any sort of hope that the 2017 version of the Chicago Bears could sneak into the playoffs, those hopes died last Sunday. The Bears are 3-9, ensured of yet another losing season, and in year three of the rebuild the hope shifts to development.
Is this the right staff to develop young talent? I’d say no, but at some point the general manager has to step in and demand change. If Ryan Pace is the boss, it’s time he starts acting like it and instruct his coaching staff to play the kids.
And by play the kids, he has to play them the right way. There are four games left in a lost season, get them ready for 2018.
In my latest T Formation Conversation podcast — Subscribe now on iTunes for Free! — I discuss a possible in-season coaching change for the Bears and also go over some young players that I want to see them play more.
Give the show a listen and let me know what you think.
In case you missed last weeks show, I discussed the core I think this team needs to build around for when they’re finally ready to compete again.
And last month, I went over what I believe is the root to Chicago’s struggles the last quarter century.
