Whoever the Chicago Bears tabbed as their next head coach was sure to be controversial. Some wanted an offensive guy, others wanted an experienced head coach, while many others were anti-retread no matter what. Me, there were a lot of guys I would have been fine with, including the man that got the gig, Matt Eberflus.
While I didn’t really have a clear cut favorite, there were about five coaches I would have rather seen the Bears hire.
But that was then, and this is now.
After spending some time digging into Eberflus’ credentials and background, I’m all-in on this hire.
The latest SB Nation Reacts’ survey question about him didn’t come back quite as positive as the 92% approval rating for new general manager Ryan Poles, but that was to be expected. He wasn’t the most popular candidate, but it seems like a lot of our fans are on board with Eberflus now, because a 79% approval rating is a good start.
