The Green Bay Packers rival, the Chicago Bears, will go on the road on Thursday night and face the Washington Commanders. If Chicago loses to Washington on Thursday night and drops to 0-5 on the season, there could be potential changes on the horizon for the Bears.
On Wednesday, Peter King went onto 670TheScore in Chicago and said in an interview with ParkinsSpiegel:
“You can not lose 14 games in a row and think you should hold onto your job.”
The Chicago Bears have not won a game since last October, and they had the worst record in the league a season ago. Chicago is on pace to get the number-one pick in back-to-back years. The Bears firing Matt Eberflus would potentially be a start for the wholesale changes that are potentially coming for the Green Bay Packers rival.
If the Green Bay Packers Rivals Do Fire Matt Eberflus, former Packers Coach Luke Getsy Could Become the Interim Head Coach
Getsy is in his second season with the Chicago Bears as the offensive coordinator. If Eberflus were fired after Thursday night, he would be the first head coach to be fired this season. It would also mean that Luke Getsy could become an interim head coach for this football team.
He has an offensive background, and Eberflus has a defensive background and was the Indianapolis Colts defensive coordinator beforehand. Getsy was a coach with the Green Bay Packers from 2014-2021 before coming over to the Chicago Bears.
This could be a potential audition for him not only for Chicago’s long-term if he were given the option to be the head coach but maybe for other teams as well. This maybe could help salvage the season for quarterback Justin Fields. It appears as if Chicago may move off of him anyway at the end of the season.
The Green Bay Packers rivals are a current mess this season. If they somehow won on Thursday night against a tough Washington Commanders opponent, it would save Matt Eberflus’s job…for now.
