The disappointing loss to the New Orleans Saints last Sunday brought about the expected dip in our fan’s confidence in the franchise, but it wasn’t as steep a dip as the previous loss. Perhaps the trade deadline moves (trading for Montez Sweat/not trading Jaylon Johnson) and contract extensions (for Sweat and Andrew Billings) softened the blow a bit.
The Chicago Bears host the Carolina Panthers tonight, and a victory will keep Carolina at one win and their first-round draft pick — which the Bears own — solidly in play for the first overall selection in the 2024 NFL Draft.
Here’s something to ponder for those voting that the Bears are not headed in the right direction.
- What would you need to see the rest of this season to change your vote?
- Or is there anything possible that could even get you to change your vote?
My fandom is in the dumps right now, and I don’t see a path out of it until the offseason. I’ll still be in front of my TV cheering on the beloved each game, but it’s tough.
I have no faith in head coach Matt Eberflus or offensive coordinator Luke Getsy, and while I’m excited to see quarterback Justin Fields get back in the lineup, I don’t see a future for him in Chicago anymore.
I want nothing more than to see this team go on a 2023-Lions-like tear to close the season, but with Eberflus’ lackluster defense and Getsy’s inconsistent offense, I don’t see it happening.
