The Chicago Bears’ tenuous commitment to Pace and Nagy might bring the worst possible outcome for the team’s future.
Wednesday may have been one of the darkest days in Chicago Bears history. In a disastrous 90-minute press conference over Zoom, owner George McCaskey and president Ted Phillips laughed in the face of their fans, expressing their acceptance of mediocrity and lack of commitment to winning at every opportunity.
After two straight 8-8 seasons, it was obvious to even the most casual of Bears fans that some sort of change was necessary. Many believed that would come in the form of GM Ryan Pace, head coach Matt Nagy or both. But McCaskey and Phillips not only announced that they’d be back, but also praised them for their efforts in an average-at-best season. Things went quickly downhill from there.
