The Chicago Bears play on Monday as they will go on the road to face the Minnesota Vikings on Monday Night Football but it was an eventful weekend in the City of Chicago as the All-State Arena was the host of WWE’s Survivor Series on Saturday night.
For those that might not know, the Chicago crowd at a wrestling event has always been considered one of the best considering the fans’ ability to express whatever is on their mind.
On Saturday night, there was a Bears fan who wanted to express his opinion on what the team should do with head coach Matt Eberflus.
During the introductions for the main event, a Bears fan was spotted in the crowd holding a “Fire Matt Eberf-lose” sign.
This is not the first time that a Bears fan has gone to these lengths to tell the team what they should do. Last month, during WWE Smackdown, a fan was spotted holding a “Fire Ryan Poles” sign.
There is no question that every Bears fan would love to see a Vince McMahon-styled firing of Eberflus and Poles.
While the Bears have already matched their win total from last season with three wins this season, when you consider they were against the Washington Commanders, Las Vegas Raiders, and Carolina Panthers, none of their three wins carry any weight.
There is a growing sense that Bears’ president Kevin Warren may be hearing what fans want and is preparing to make changes. Still, it’s likely that only Eberflus is in real jeopardy of losing his job as, despite the regression of the team in his second season, general manager Ryan Poles likely will be afforded a third season.
After all, WWE gave the Chicago fans what they wanted last night as CM Punk made his return to the company for the first time in nearly 10 years and the crowd went unhinged.
Perhaps, the Bears could learn a thing or two from actually listening to their fans.
