It seems the warmth has been turned up on Chicago Bears common supervisor Ryan Tempo, regardless of studies that his job is protected.
The Chicago Bears are a playoff crew this yr, however it feels more and more like that’s true in identify solely.
Regardless of a six-game dropping streak, switching beginning quarterbacks twice, and getting blown out in a Week 17 win-and-in sport, the Bears might be taking part in soccer on Wild Card Weekend. This has triggered each pleasure and dread amongst Bears followers who’re completely happy to observe a tough to return by playoff sport however dreading what kind of phony endorsement that will serve to justify bringing again Matt Nagy and Ryan Tempo in 2021.
It has been reported that Nagy will return as coach subsequent yr and that the Bears are hoping to re-sign Mitchell Trubisky. Common Supervisor Ryan Tempo, the brainchild of this present iteration of the franchise, can be anticipated to return.
Nevertheless, all isn’t misplaced so far as hoping for some form of change at Halas Corridor.
Chicago Bears may very well be serious about hiring Chiefs government as subsequent GM
Brad Biggs from the Chicago Tribune speculated that if the Bears resolve to fireside Ryan Tempo this offseason they’ll look to the Kansas Metropolis Chiefs entrance workplace for his alternative.
Rumors have circulated within the final week that the Bears might goal Kansas Metropolis Chiefs director of soccer operations Mike Borgonzi. That is hypothesis, however I heard this from two unrelated sources in the previous couple of days, and with the Chiefs incomes the No. 1 seed within the AFC playoffs, Borgonzi wouldn’t be obtainable to be employed away till the season is full for the defending Tremendous Bowl champions.
Biggs confused that this isn’t a report that the Bears are actively on the lookout for a common supervisor alternative, so don’t learn too far into this. But when we’re peering that far down the rabbit gap, then it’s completely advantageous to muse about how groups that aren’t seeking to hearth their common supervisor don’t sometimes go sniffing for a brand new one.
The Chiefs are the gold normal within the NFL proper now, with a franchise quarterback and a company filled with expertise that groups are chomping on the bit to attempt to siphon. The Bears have been to the Chiefs nicely earlier than, hiring Nagy off of Andy Reid’s teaching workers in an effort to copy Kansas Metropolis’s offensive success (in fact, the important thing lacking piece in that equation is a sore spot for Bears followers).
Rumors that the Bears are serious about Borgonzi is an effective signal for Nagy, as the 2 have been in Kansas Metropolis on the similar time and will share an analogous imaginative and prescient for what they need the Bears to be. It additionally doesn’t imply that Tempo can be fired, as Borgonzi may very well be introduced in to serve alongside Tempo earlier than ultimately succeeding him if issues break that manner.
Both manner, regardless of the Bears making it look like they’re working issues again in 2021, there may very well be some much-needed adjustments this offseason in spite of everything.
