Don’t let anyone fool you. The Chicago Bears are one of the worst teams in the NFL. Tyson Bagent had a wildly overrated game against the Las Vegas Raiders who started Brian Hoyer as their own quarterback. That guy wasn’t even good enough to play for the lousy Bears.
They don’t have their quarterback and that isn’t even close to being the only issue at hand for them. There are a lot of things that need to be addressed as time goes on. This team is in a forever cycle of terrible football.
The trade deadline is fast approaching. This is a scary time for the Bears and it isn’t because the deadline is on Halloween. It is because they are a terrible franchise that has a lot of work to do if they ever want to get better.
Some hard trades are going to have to be made if they want to make the future better for themselves. These are the three players that they must trade because of what they can get back:
The Chicago Bears should consider moving on from Eddie Jackson this week.
Eddie Jackson has been a staple with the Chicago Bears for a long time now. There was a point where he was one of the best defensive backs in the NFL. A player that made an impact like that doesn’t come around too often.
He helped make the 2018 Chicago Bears defense one of the best in the NFL. It got to the point where opposing quarterbacks found it very difficult to make a big play down the field on Jackson’s side.
He has even made a play that helped seal the Chicago Bears a division title against the Green Bay Packers. That seems like so long ago but it was only back in 2018. At that point in time, it felt like Jackson was going to be a big part of the future.
Now, here we are in 2023 and Jackson never really had a season quite like that ever again. You have to keep in mind that guys like Khalil Mack, Leonard Floyd, and Akiem Hicks started to fade out after a while which didn’t help the defensive backs.
Kyle Fuller moving on didn’t help Jackson much either. The help around Jackson has dwindled and now it might be time to get him a change of scenery. If a team wants to give something up for him, the Bears need to consider it.
