Chairman George McCaskey lauded the duo's resiliency during the team's 8-8 season

"Have mistakes been made? Yes," McCaskey said, per reporters. "But I think Ryan and Matt are learning and growing in their roles ... I understand your frustration. We're frustrated, too ... (but) sticking with these guys is the best route for the Bears at this time ... We all want things to get better, and a lot of times, you have to go through tough times to get better. The way they've handled adversity the last two seasons leads us to the conclusion that they're the best people to lead us through 2021."

At some point gms have to learn a valuable lesson that drafting a top 3 pick qb should not stop you from finding a qbotf. Not a bandaid. Not an expensive backup. A true qbotf. Props to Arizona and Seattle, two good examples of teams who didn't settle too long on their QB and it really paid off for them.

Just amazing how so many billion dollar entities (which is the valuation of most NFL franchises, including the Bears), are satisfied with consistent mediocrity.

The Bears only backed into the playoffs because of the expanded 7th seed, and because of a fluke tie breaking scenario over Arizona and then were promptly curb stomped by the Saints.

But apparently that outcome, along with the Trublowsky over Mahomes/Watson epic failure is "impressive" enough for their loser ownership.

If you can make billions being consistently mediocre, it's hard to argue with the business strategy.

With the way the NFL tv contracts work, you get paid regardless. It is not like baseball where teams sucking for a long time can be attributed to small market and lack of finances.
