Was Matt Eberflus critical of ex-Chicago Bears offensive coordinator Luke Getsy?

The Chicago Bears are on the verge of completing their coaching staff with just one assistant coach left to finalize. Recently, the team introduced their new offensive and defensive coordinators, Eric Washington and Shane Waldron, who addressed the media. Waldron's remarks were eagerly anticipated, particularly regarding the Bears' quarterback situation, but he offered little insight, simply stating that his offensive system is adaptable to fit any quarterback's skill set without specifying names.

Prior to the coordinators' introductions, head coach Matt Eberflus shared some intriguing thoughts during his media appearance. While discussing the desired traits in new coordinators, Eberflus seemed to indirectly reference the shortcomings of former offensive coordinator Luke Getsy. He emphasized the importance of creativity, adaptability, in-game tactics, leadership, and teaching ability in a coordinator, traits that may have been lacking in Getsy's tenure.

Eberflus emphasized the necessity for coaches to have a deep passion for the game and the ability to collaborate effectively, suggesting potential deficiencies in Getsy's partnership with the coaching staff.

Overall, Eberflus's comments hinted at a shift in accountability away from Getsy and towards the offensive performance, although it's not certain whether Justin Fields will remain the quarterback for the upcoming season. The prevailing sentiment aligns with observations from the previous season, underscoring the organization's focus on addressing coaching deficiencies to improve team performance.
