Bears Mailbag — Does The 2021 Draft Class Save Ryan Pace?


SANDY SPRINGS, Ga. — The Chicago Bears returned to work after a painful bye week.  By now, we all know what happened.  The referees directly turned a Monday Night Football road win into a loss with egregious called (and not called) penalties.  And the Bears limped to the off week at 3-6 instead of 4-5, and firmly near the bottom of the NFC.

Considering how well Justin Fields played to get the Bears in position to win, leaving Pittsburgh with a loss was devastating.  Including for him and the young players on the Bears’ offense.  I made that point in “Final Take” on our last Club Dub episode:

The Bears take on the Baltimore Ravens at Soldier Field this Sunday in yet another attempt to turn their season around.

If they can, they go into Thanksgiving in Detroit with a chance to get to 5-6 and get squarely back in the NFC playoff conversation.  If they lose…

With that, let’s reach into this week’s Bears Mailbag.  Follow me on Twitter @DhruvKoul to continue the conversation.

Yeah after the last two drafts if say pace has really gotten the hang if things, to suggest Nagys scouting has somehow changed the bears luck is insane, same guy that forced mizzell and wims to play and hated Jordan Howard. So I dont think Nagy saved anything and r drafting would step backwards if pace leaves. Hes on hottest streak since finks 76-83 for god sake

Yes, and the 2020 draft class should be included in the considerations. The NFL is a “what have you done for me lately” place. Judging Pace on the first few years of drafts when he was learning the job, and ignoring the last few that have been good is a fools move.

Only way Pace shouldn’t be fired is if the Bears get to the conference finals. He’s been a disaster.
