It feels much more recent than it is in reality, but the Chicago Bears went through a monumental leadership change over four months ago now.

It has been four months of many personnel decisions, coaching hires and, well, lack of any real positive splash moves for the Bears since hiring general manager Ryan Poles to take over for Ryan Pace.

Now, that’s not to say that Poles hasn’t done good things since taking over. He has — and it started with the hiring of head coach Matt Eberflus. Like it or not, Eberflus is the type of coach this team needs; a guy who bleeds football and demands the hard work.

But, in terms of looking at the roster overall, Poles has had a questionable offseason during his first crack at it with the Bears.

General manager Ryan Poles has been far from perfect in his first year with the Chicago Bears.

There will be a lot of unanswered questions for now, and the fan base is split on many of these issues — surprise, surprise.

One of the biggest transactions Poles has been part of was to ship off former All Pro pass rusher Khalil Mack, signaling a full-on rebuild for this team. It was somewhat of a necessary move, but still wasn’t treated as such by a large portion of the fan base.

In an understandably patient approach, on one hand, Poles has taken his time and seems to be lining up for a much bigger offseason in 2023. But, the ‘here and now’ is still relevant. Second-year quarterback Justin Fields needs the proper development, but is he getting a fair shot?

Again, Poles has said all of the right things. He has made some excellent moves; smart moves, really, But, he has three specific moves that he’ll be questioned on for a while now, until they prove him correct.
