The Chicago Bears had their introductory press conference for new GM Ryan Poles and new head coach Matt Eberflus. Owner George McCaskey and quarterback Justin Fields also appeared to take questions from the media. Honestly, it was a great performance that got a lot of Bears fans excited.
One of the biggest lessons of the day should be Matt Eberflus’ comment. He is very outspoken in his plans as a head coach. The best thing he said is that even though he’s now a former defensive coordinator, he’ll let the new guy they hire play defensively.
It’s a big change from Matt Nagy. Nagy is a former offensive coordinator who wants to commit the offense as if he were still the coordinator. It didn’t work out well because he wasn’t good at running the whole team other than being a bad guy.
In addition to this difference in philosophy, Eberflus is a lot better in terms of microphones. He gives what he wants to give without seeming condescending. It was a breath of fresh air for Bears fans as well as the media. Hopefully it’s something that continues.
Matt Eberflus seems to be the complete opposite of the cool Matt Nagy.
All we want from this team is a winning product. If that happens by the time they’re in Arlington Heights with a stunning new stadium, they could be one of the most exciting franchises in the National Football League. They might as well have an elite quarterback at Justin Fields, that’s even better.
Eberflus seems to know what to do to make that happen. Based on his record with the Indianapolis Colts, we can expect that from the defense and exceptional teams. If each of those turns out to be true and Luke Getsy does a good job of fouling, we could be talking about a team that continues to compete for the North.
Another thing Eberflus does that seem better than Nagy is there’s something special about the general manager. We’ve never seen Ryan Pace and Matt Nagy act the way Eberflus and Ryan Poles did on Monday. These two seem to be on the same page, which is amazing.
People place a lot of expectations on Eberflus to bring this team to the promised land. We’ve had a couple of really bad coaches in a row so the link will be short in terms of publicity. Hopefully he acts much differently than Nagy on the pitch, but this is a start.
