3 Bears Most To Blame For Disastrous 2023-24 Season

In a year that saw improvement, the Bears still manage to get in their own way to make sure that was buried. Here's who to blame the most.

2. Luke Getsy should not be around next year.

The buck doesn't stop with the head coach.

Offensive coordinator Luke Getsy completely mismanaged this offense and wasted another year of quarterback Justin Fields' talents, possibly sending him out the door, too.

We probably saw more failed and mistimed screen passes this year alone than the Bears have total franchise victories. Getsy had our smallest wide receivers on the line blocking for slow-developing plays. His seemed totally unaware of the phrase "situational football." What he did to this offense this year should be criminal.

Getsy came from Green Bay in 2022, serving as offensive quality control in one stint and the quarterbacks coach in another. The argument and conspiracy can be made that he is still employed up there and was sent to Chicago to sabotage and make sure the Bears continue to fail on the offensive side of the ball.

The Chicago Bears franchise invented the act of the forward pass, but they are the only franchise to never have a 4,000-yard passer in a season. For over three decades, we witnessed a passing clinic happening in Green Bay. Then, we took their guy, and nothing? Is the fix in, or is it just another curse?

Whatever the case may be, after two years of nothing new under Getsy, his time in Chicago should be finished immediately.
