Does it really matter who the head coach is the next few years?
The Bears are being vastly exposed, and their glaring holes are being made very obvious.
As we know the offensive line (despite playing better recently) is complete crap. We need at least two new linemen on our way to five new blockers. We have one great WR in Marshall, and maybe another good target in Jeffery. Another good WR would be nice. We need a TE because the ones we have might be worse than our problem with the OL. A fullback would be nice a well, though not overly necessary. At least not more than the other woes on the offensive line.
Then we have the defense who is showing their age. They are slowing down, and we need to start bring in guys who can step in when they start going down to injury. The line is looking great, but i think we lack depth (as we do everywhere else). We need a good MLB, and should start looking at some OLBs because Briggs is not getting any younger. Tillman and Jennings are doing good, but who at their replacements? If we lose one of the starters for the season can they be trusted to hold the fort the whole year as opposed to a game? Same with our safeties. They are playing well, but same question about their backups?
How long is it going to take this team to be able to compete with the packers who have no problem dealing with injury? Think it can all be fixed in a year? Two years? Three?
If the Bears miss the playoffs, Lovie likely gets axed, unless Virginia saves him. Who should be the next coach? Should they bring in a great coach to basically just be a place holder and caretaker til we can compete with the best FOR THE WHOLE SEASON? Likely have a few losing seasons the next few years.... keep that in mind. Or bring in an up and commer who wants to get his feet wet?
in the end, will it really matter who coaches the team while trying to rebuild the team?
