The Chicago Bears defeated the lowly Detroit Lions 26-24 on Sunday. The win was like many others for the team this season, ugly as they had to hang on for dear life at the end. It did however give them a 10-6 record overall. While that is nothing to turn ones nose up at, it wasn’t enough to get them to the post season thanks the the Swiss cheese defense they are running up in Greenbay, which allowed AP to run loose. It is the 5th time in the last 6 seasons under Lovie Smith which the team has missed out. This brings us to what I feel will be an offseason of change I the windy city. Will George McCaskey fire Smith and eat the 5 mil he is owed? Conventional thinking says no, but then again, change is a coming wether the team likes it or not.
A third of the roster will be free agents. Decisions must be made on starters such as Henry Melton and Nick Roach. What about Lance Louis, who is without a doubt the teams best offensive lineman? And a dark cloud on the immediate horizon is the future of HOF linebacker Brian Urlacher.
So many decisions, so little cap space. One thing is for certain, the next few weeks will be interesting for the team.
Stay tuned and I will cover more roster moves in the coming weeks.
