Matt Eberflus’ days as the Chicago Bears head coach may be numbered as the team has lost 14 consecutive games dating back to last season.
The Bears’ latest loss came on Sunday against the Denver Broncos after they allowed 24 unanswered points in a 31-28 loss.
The infrastructure that Eberflus has fallen back on as his crutch has crumbled this season as he has botched the messaging surrounding the resignation of defensive coordinator Alan Williams and the team’s decision to have wide receiver Chase Claypool away from any activity.
The expectation is that Claypool has played his last game as a member of the Bears and Thursday may be the last game that Eberflus has as the head coach of the Bears.
Peter King joined the Parkings and Spiegel show on 670 The Score on Tuesday and mentioned that he would not be surprised if the Bears moved on from Eberflus with a loss to the Washington Commanders on Thursday night.
A loss to the Washington Commanders on Thursday would mark the 15th straight loss of Eberflus’ tenure and all but seal his fate as the head coach of the Chicago Bears.
The Bears have never fired a coach in-season and that should not be something that the team should hold up as a symbol of stability. Each of the last three head coaching hires for the Bears have failed and the only reason they haven’t been able to make an in-season change is because the McCaskey family always has to fall back on an outside consultant to tell them what they should do.
That no longer should be the case as Kevin Warren is in place as the Bears’ president. Warren has a football background and if he is to be taken seriously when he says that he wants to make sure that the Bears’ front porch is clean, then the only action that needs to be taken with a Bears’ loss to the Commanders on Thursday is the firing of Eberflus.
