We’re over a month removed from the end of what was another disappointing season for the Chicago Bears. Despite making the playoffs for the second time in three years, it was another mediocre campaign that ended with a swift postseason elimination.
Don’t let the postseason berth fool you, no one has much confidence in this Bears team following this season.
USA Today’s Nate Davis released his final power rankings for the 2020 season, and the Bears landed at 20th on the list. Which isn’t really a surprise given their overall disappointing season.
After a valiant charge to postseason, they’re back to Square One times two – still looking for an answer at quarterback while hoping for a smooth break-in for rookie DC Sean Desai.
The Bears finished 8-8 for the second straight season and snuck their way into the playoffs. Which was a disappointment considering they had a 5-1 start which soon turned ugly with a six-game losing streak. Bears brass will point to the team’s response to that six-game losing streak — a 3-1 finish to the season. But there’s no mistaking it was another blown opportunity for this team.
While it would be nice to put the 2020 season behind us and look forward to change in 2021, it’s hard to do that when the Bears organization remains content with mediocrity.
The Bears made the decision to retain general manager Ryan Pace and head coach Matt Nagy for another season, believing they can turn things around in 2021. But we’ve seen this story before. We just lived it in 2020.
It’s hard to have much faith in the Bears finding their footing when the people that have been the problem — George McCaskey, Ted Phillips, Pace and Nagy — remain in control.
