We'll find out what the Bears are really playing for, Hub Arkush writes
With six weeks remaining in the 2021 season and all of the craziness and turmoil that has surrounded the Chicago Bears, perhaps the most stunning fact of all – and I emphasize fact – is they enter this home stretch just one game out of a playoff spot, Hub Arkush writes
For a man struggling like mad to save an ultra valuable prize, a head-coaching job in the NFL, truth is pretty darn important. But does it rise to the level of covering people’s behinds?
The truth is their performance almost certainly wouldn’t have earned a win over any other team in the league but the Lions, but the Bears and Matt Nagy needed this win after a terrible week at Halas Hall, Hub Arkush writes.
The likely end of the Matt Nagy era might have been unavoidable, but the responsibility for how poorly it has unfolded falls squarely at the feet of George McCaskey and the organization's leadership, Hub Arkush writes.
Bears chairman George McCaskey directed the Bears coaching staff to name Justin Fields the permanent starting quarterback prior to the Week 5 game against the Las Vegas Raiders, multiple sources tell Shaw Local’s Hub Arkush.
Hub Arkush writes, if you have a heart discussing a painful end to another man’s future is never pleasant, particularly if it’s someone you like as I do Chicago Bears head coach Matt Nagy
There are seven games left to play, but this Bears performance was so embarrassing, and the collapse so complete, it is hard to find the road map as to how Matt Nagy will keep his job, Hub Arkush writes.
The Bears welcome the Baltimore Ravens with Akiem Hicks and Khalil Mack both already declared out and Allen Robinson doubtful to play. So how do the Bears give themselves a chance?
Injuries to Khalil Mack and Akiem Hicks have clearly hampered the Bears' defense, but even accounting for that, the run defense has still fallen short during the four-game losing streak, Hub Arkush writes.
The Bears offensive line has performed fairly well through the first half of the season. With Larry Borom showing promise, and Teven Jenkins retuning to practice, the line has real promise, Hub Arkush writes.
Forget the officiating, none of this matters if the Bears don’t go at least 5-3 the rest of the way and it could very well take a 6-2 finish to even join the playoff conversation
It’s the most talked about subject in Chicago sports: should Bears general manager Ryan Pace and head coach Matt Nagy keep their jobs?
Even accounting for a difficult schedule, it's tough to give the Bears many high marks following a 3-6 start, Hub Arkush writes.
A loss is still a loss, but there were plenty of positives for the Bears to take away from Monday's game in Pittsburgh. In particular, Justin Fields' second half was must-watch football, Hub Arkush writes.
