"At this point we can pretty much stick a fork in the Chicago Bears' season. While they mathematically still have a chance to make the playoffs, it's not likely to happen. The energy around the team is mostly negative and the body language from some players clearly shows that the season is done. We heard this week that President Ted Phillips will likely "step down" and retire after this season (likely because he'll be fired otherwise) and it seems there will be other major changes. According to Dan Wiederer of the Chicago Tribune, the feeling around the NFL is that "major changes" are coming during the offseason for the Bears. Phillips along with general manager Ryan Pace and head coach Matt Nagy are all likely gone after this season. Quarterbacks Nick Foles and Mitch Trubisky are likely gone as well and there's slim chance that Allen Robinson returns in a Bears' uniform next season. Wiederer stresses that the changes will likely come after the season because the next significant Bears game isn't for another week. It's more than likely George McCaskey cleans house as we're reminded about what he said after last season. «I've told you folks before, I'm not a patient person,» he said. «That's where it's really helpful to have Ryan. He talks about not getting too high or too low, trying to keep an even keel. That's important for me to remember because I react like a fan. That's no way to run a football team.»
A full offseason and a disaster of a season seems like more than enough time to "cool down".
