Let’s say you run an NFL team… Your general manager has one winning season over six years, no playoff wins, and can’t get the quarterback position right. Your head coach has overseen two straight 8-8 seasons and likely deserves just as much blame as the quarterback he’s been tasked with fixing. What do you do in that scenario?
According to Chicago Bears chairman George McCaskey, you run it back. Not only do you choose to run it back, but you’re also “impressed” by the job both of them have done.
That’s probably not the response Bears fans would’ve wished for after suffering through the Bears catastrophic collapse. Yes, the Bears found a way to back into the playoffs by beating three non-playoff teams, but it was obvious they didn’t belong there after the New Orleans Saints handled them with ease.
