The Chicago Bears have known nothing but losing with Matt Eberflus as the head coach.
The team has won six games in the 28 games he has been in charge.
The Bears have lost two games this season despite having double-digit leads heading into the fourth quarter.
Last Sunday was a historic way to lose as Eberflus’ defense allowed the Lions to score 15 points during the game’s final four minutes.
All the losing, and how it is happening, should lead to Eberflus getting his pink slip. Remember, the McCaskey family still owns the Chicago Bears. Team chairman George McCaskey once brought back former general manager Ryan Pace and head coach Matt Nagy because they followed up a six-game losing streak with a three-game win streak to sneak into the playoffs.
The wild card is new team president Kevin Warren.
Maybe going 0-9 in division games, not beating any team with a winning record, failing to defeat a team with a bonafide starting quarterback, and 18 games where the opponent has scored more than 25 points will be enough for Warren to get rid of Eberflus.
George is still Warren’s boss. General manager Ryan Poles has also endorsed Eberflus any chance he can get.
The franchise would be better off firing Eberflus at the end of the season. The is an organization that has been loyal to a fault throughout its history. That is why you cannot just write off the chance that the Flus returns next season–even if it is completely the wrong decision.
It would not be shocking to see Eberflus return next season based on historical precedence and these four reasons.
