Howard: I don’t know what Eberflus has to stand on

Herb Howard joins the Bears Banter Podcast!

NFL: Chicago Bears at Detroit Lions Lon Horwedel-USA TODAY Sports

The latest Bears Banter Podcast has dropped!

Herb Howard from CHGO and The Bigs stops by to drop some knowledge and great opinions about the Chicago Bears' collapse against the Detroit Lions and what it means for Matt Eberflus and the coaching staff moving forward.

Herb has plenty of great points about the Bears, but he really just can't see the positives with Matt Eberflus. He just doesn't see scenarios at this point where Eberflus keeps his job after this season.

"I don't know what he has to stand on," Howard stated regarding his job security. "You talk about throwing out 2022 while they implemented their culture and were developing their locker room, right? You talk about the HITS principle with the hustle and intensity and the ball and playing smart. Those are things that should get you through when you had a historic lead against the Broncos. Those are things that should get you through when you're up 12 with four minutes to go against Detroit. These are games you should be able to win if the team is playing your HITS philosophy, and I just think as a coach, you can't not take accountability for those types of losses."

Herb continued to bring up some great points about what led to the Detroit game (it started well before the final 4 minutes), how he would handle Justin Fields, and we even discussed if Tremaine Edmunds is living up to his contract.

It's a great podcast, so check out the video of the interview with Herb here:
