After their second-straight win, the Chicago Bears have reason to feel positive about themselves for the time being. At 6-10, this season is and has been lost for a few weeks now. But, a win feels good, and there are reasons to look towards a positive future.
First and foremost, the Bears are going to indeed fire head coach. Matt Nagy after their week 18 matchup with the Minnesota Vikings, per a recent report. That, above all else, should give Bears fans plenty to be excited about.
It will officially be a new era in Chicago.
Now, it is all about building around the franchise quarterback, Justin Fields. Find a competent head coach who can hire the right offensive coordinator and develop Fields into the star he is capable of becoming. Part of that process, though, will be getting him another weapon or two.
The Chicago Bears will have some risky wide receiver options in free agency, but they could come at a discount.
Allen Robinson is going to be a free agent, and there is no chance the Bears bring him back. This season, Robinson has been uninterested and hardly productive. He’s gone, which most have seen coming for a while now.
The Bears will have Darnell Mooney as their de facto number one, with decisions to make on Damiere Byrd, Jakeem Grant and Marquise Goodwin.
In free agency, they could easily find another solid receiver to pair with Mooney. In fact, some of them will come at a nice discount due to some unfortunate injuries suffered this season. Four particular options look good for the Bears, starting with a former LSU speedster.
