BWM: Hirings and firings and extensions, oh my! (with ECD!)

In the latest episode of Bear With Me, Robert S. brings on WCG’s own ECD to talk through the many different moves the Bears made over the last week. Extensions, firings, hirings, we talk through it all!

NFL: Baltimore Ravens at Pittsburgh Steelers Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

The Chicago Bears’ season may have ended two weeks ago, but they gave us plenty to talk about in last week’s flurry of moves. With that in mind, I brought on WCG’s resident optimist (ECD) to help me break down every move they made in detail. Throughout the pod we discuss...

  • Our thoughts on the Bears’ firings of Mark Helfrich (OC), Harry Hiestand (OL), Kevin Gilbride (TE), and Brock Olivo (ST)
  • First impressions of new OL coach Juan Castillo
  • Who ECD wants to see the Bears hire at OC
  • Ideas for how the Bears may choose to address RG, QB this offseason
  • And much, much more...

Check it out below and let me know what you think!
