It’s time for another WCG Chicago Bears Poll of the Day. What are your thoughts on general manager Ryan Pace?

This one should stir up a good healthy debate among you Chicago Bears’ fans.

Do you approve of the job being done by Chicago Bears general manager Ryan Pace?

It’s a yes or no question, because if you we’re all in a year ago, but kinda, sorta, think he hasn’t been as good this last season, then that’s still a yes. If you are hemming and hawing, trying to find a reason why you should bother with a yes vote, then that’s a no.

Do you want to give him a pass on his first draft class because he didn’t have his scouting team in place yet? That’s your call. Do you want to blame Pace for the injury to Kevin White? Again, that’s up to you.

Yes or no. Do you still think Pace is the right guy?

In October we ran a Pace approval rating and it was 72% yes. In November that yes was up to 88%. But these Bears have now lost five in a row, which is the worst in-season streak of the Pace era. They did lose six straight between 2016 and the start in 2017.

The Bears are now 12-32 since Ryan Pace took over. I’ve compared Chicago’s rebuild to the one that the Raiders undertook in 2012 when they hired first time GM Reggie McKenzie. From 2012-2014, the Raiders won 11 games total. They went 7-9 in year four, 12-4 in year five, and this year they are 6-6 and in the thick of the AFC West race.

But has the Bears’ roster improved enough for you guys to give Pace the yes vote?

We try and run these approval rating polls every so often for both the head coach and the general manager, but I don’t really see a point in running a poll about current head coach John Fox. I think the majority of people assume he won’t be head coach much longer, and even those that think he’ll return can’t possibly believe he’s done a good job.
