The Chicago Bears have officially announced the firing of offensive coordinator Luke Getsy, as well as multiple other assistants. They also made a point to say they are retaining Matt Eberflus as head coach. In two years, this staff has gone a combined 10-24, finishing in dead last of the NFC North division in both years.
This comes at a pivotal time in Chicago. After a blockbuster trade last offseason, the Bears hold the rights to the first overall pick in the upcoming NFL Draft. The major question now is whether they will use that pick to draft a new quarterback and trade Justin Fields, trade back in the draft and keep Fields, or keep the pick and keep Fields.
We don't know what the exact plan is moving forward. But we do know they need a completely new offensive staff. Their decision on the quarterback may determine what hires they make. But if their plan is to keep Fields and build around him and his skillset, there is a tandem that would love the opportunity to coach and lead Fields to greatness.
Bears Rumors: Former NFL QBs Chase Daniel and Dan Olovsky Want to Coach Justin Fields
Chase Daniel and Dan Orlovsky know the position of quarterback in the NFL more so than the average person. Both played in the NFL and have watched a lot of football. Daniel was even a backup for the Bears for a stint. But another thing they both have in common is their belief in and love for Fields and his abilities.
Daniel does a weekly hit on Chicago's sports radio station 670 the Score. He has always complimented Fields on his ability and is not afraid to be critical of the play calling and gameplanning surrounding Fields. He has made it known that he sees it in Fields, he knows how to get it out of him, and he knows what is needed.
Olovsky was so high on Fields, he thought he could be an MVP candidate this past season. When he said this, he did not know Fields would miss time with injury, Getsy would not develop as a play caller, and the Bears would continue to put themselves in terrible situations.
The bottom line is Danield knows Fields and Olovsky knows offensive football in today's NFL. If you put them in the same room together on the same page with their quarterback, how could it be any worse than we've seen for over half a century now?
Plus, they're already on board with the plan.
