The business world requires people of action, people who get things done, people who don’t sit around waiting for things to work but who go out and make them work! And one of the most time-honored and socially acceptable actions you can take in the business world is to throw up your hands and see if a consultant can figure it out.
And that’s just how bad it has gotten for the Chicago Bears (1-6). According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, the Bears are re-evaluating their whole operation and have secured the help of an “outside consultant” to do it.
At 1-6, everything is up for review. It’s clear Fox’s footing beyond 2016 is shaky. As for the front office and general manager Ryan Pace, the current view from inside is that two years is far too quick to judge those tabbed with acquiring talent, especially with the 2016 draft class showing flashes of being a strong one.
According to Rapoport there have been some “intense meetings” this week between front office and coaches. We’re left to speculate about the content of those meetings, but it seems safe to say those conversations centered around the Bears and how lousy they are and possibly what sort of an action plan could be put into place to reduce the lousiness.
Well, the first thing you’ve got to do is hire a consultant, and the Bears have done that, so it’s only a matter of time til this thing gets straightened out.
