Bears absolutely dominating - which means they'll probably still lose against the totally uninterested vikes.

It's amazing you can get outscored 31-3 by a team with a lame duck coach and the wind out of their playoff sails

In the most anticlimatic news, Nagy is out, and Pace also is gone. What is surprising is Flores getting booted from the Dolphins.


EOG Dedicated
Bears definitely have decent talent for the right hire to play with and would like to hear the reasoning for firing Flores who appears to be a top 10 coach.


EOG Master
Hub says things between Flores and the owner have been going downhill for some weeks.
Owner has big ties to Michigan..

One radio guy summed it up this way...

.only the bears can fire the 2 guys everyone wanted fired and not win the day

Tuesday wasn’t Ryan Poles’ first visit to Halas Hall. It won’t be his last, either.

The Bears interviewed the Chiefs’ 36-year-old executive director of player personnel in person on Tuesday after talking to him virtually Friday. By midday, the Bears were finalizing a deal to make him their next general manager, sources confirmed.

Poles was in high demand for general manager jobs — a finalist for the Panthers job last year, he conducted two interviews with the Giants before they chose Joe Schoen as their GM last week. He’s reached the final round of the Vikings’ GM search, too — he was scheduled to fly to Minneapolis for an in-person interview Wednesday.

Instead, the Bears got their man, less than 24 hours after chairman George McCaskey picked Poles up at O’Hare International Airport. McCaskey was captured on social media walking through baggage claim Monday night while wearing a Bears letterman’s jacket

McCaskey family still has the Halas trait of treating dimes like manhole covers....

only hired Ryan Poles to replace Ryan Pace

because they can save on the GM office name plate and just get it modified to Ryan P

The Chicago Bears hired Indianapolis Colts defensive coordinator Matt Eberflus as their head coach, The Athletic has confirmed. Eberflus just completed his fourth season in charge of Indianapolis' defense and the Colts have finished with a top-10 run defense in each of those years.

He was way down in the market. I'm sure he wasn't their first choice.

Flores had to have said no....
