The Ryan Pace Bracket Challenge: Final

Six years are being summed up in two polls. Is it fair? Not at all. Is it fun? Let’s hope so. If, not, at least real football is coming soon.

After more than six years as a GM, Ryan Pace has made a number of decisions, and Bears fans have mixed feelings on whether the sum total of his contributions are positive or negative. However, after going through his best and worst decisions, there are only two showdowns left. Each showdown is simple—a draft move will go head-to-head with a management move, and the selection with the most votes after 48 hours will be crowned the winner.

Best Decision

#1 (Draft): Justin Fields - Fans have picked the move to trade up and select Justin Fields as the best move Ryan Pace has made in the draft. Fields has yet to play in the NFL, but early signs are promising.


#2 (Management) Akiem Hicks- Meanwhile, the fan-selected best management move is the acquisition of Akiem Hicks, which needed a tie-breaker round to beat out the trade for Khalil Mack. Hicks is a monster, and he has led the defense since arriving.

Worst Decision

#1 (Draft): Mitchell Trubisky - Fans spoke consistently and steadily that the move to trade up and select Mitchell Trubisky is the worst move Ryan Pace has made in the draft.


#1 (Management): Signing Mike Glennon - Glennon was never a decent starter, yet Pace brought him in as the quarterback to bridge the transition between Jay Cutler and Mitchell Trubisky. Glennon somehow played even worse than expected.
