Bears Head Coach Matt Eberflus is in the middle of his second season and seems to be suffering from a small bout of insanity.
Chicago have now lost thirteen straight under Eberflus, but the second year coach thinks things are really close to working out. “I think we’re real close. I really do,” Eberflus said Monday. “I know a lot of people say it’s a far way away. I don’t believe that. I think we’re close. I think it’s more about the details of the individual person. If we just keep doing that right, right things are going to happen.”
On struggling QB, Justin Fields, Eberflus had this to say on what he wants to see from his QB, “He’s been doing it in terms of the work and now we’re going to see the fruits of the labor. He’s just got to keep doing the things – the platform, the rhythm and timing, the things we’ve been discussing. I thought we did a good job of moving him out of the pocket yesterday. Had a couple quarterback designed runs, couple run-pass options, took those shots down the field. I thought those were really good. We got to capitalize on those. He did some things in Sunday’s game, OK, that looked how we wanted it to look. It’s getting better.”
MATT EBERFLUS FIGHTING FOR HIS JOB
In fairness to Matt Eberflus he can hardly say that the sky is falling and expect his team to rally. So he’s doing exactly what he has to, but are there any Bears fans out there who agree that this team is close? I doubt that. After the 41-10 thumping the Bears received this week, in which his QB went 11/22 for 99 yards 1 td and 1 int there’s really no-one being positive apart from Matt Eberflus.
The Bears have a great chance to get back on track this week though, if they are actually as close as the coach thinks, as they host the 0-3 Denver Broncos who just received the beatdowns of all beatdowns 70-20 to the Miami Dolphins.
Maybe this will prove Matt Eberflus right and be the turning point of the Bears season.
Or maybe it will be the beginning of a not to far away ending for the head coach.
