The Chicago Bears season has turned around rather quickly.
I’m afraid not the way fans wanted nor expected.
After starting off with an impressive record of 5-1, the Bears have now dropped three straight.
While they have been losing to potential playoff teams, they look sloppy.
More so, on the offensive end.
After all, they brought in head coach Matt Nagy, who is supposed to be a quarterback guru.
Nagy has been under fire after 3 straight poor offensive performances.
One report suggested that Chicago might bring back a former Bear to coach.
Report: Chicago Bears Interested In Jim Harbaugh
While rumors are just simply rumors, this report has some extra spice to it.
Greg Cough of OutKick, reports the Bear’s interest in the current Michigan head coach.

In the article, Couch discusses why Harbaugh is a good fit in Chicago:
“But he’s still the guy who took the San Francisco 49ers to the Super Bowl and those NFC Championship games. He’s still the guy who developed quarterbacks. Before that, he built nerdy Stanford into a touch success. Harbaugh has had success at multiple places.”
While Harbaugh was very successful in San Francisco — and to his credit, built a solid foundation there — he struggled to win the big game and that is why he ultimately found himself coaching in college again.
There is no denying that Harbaugh is a football guy, but he’s even struggling at Michigan.
In all his time there, he has failed to beat Ohio State and failed to develop a good quarterback.
The Bears biggest weakness right now is the quarterback position as they do not have any consistency from it.
Much of that cannot be put on Nagy as he wasn’t there when Trubisky was drafted.
But, Couch believes, “that Bears quarterback Mitch Trubisky might actually develop under Harbaugh” as coach Nagy has failed to develop to him.
As it currently stands, Nagy is 25-16 as the Bears head coach and he’s done that without a legit quarterback.
This Harbaugh story is intriguing though as he was once a Bear himself.
Matt Nagy Can’t Be Blamed For QB Position
As alluded to earlier, when Nagy took over the Bears position, Mitch Trubisky was already there.
In fact, he displayed his coaching talent by winning coach of the year and taking this Bears team to the playoffs in his first year.
They should have beat the Saints if it weren’t for the double doink.
During this past offseason, the Bears tried developing Trubisky more by bringing in competition.
A move that was made officially official today: the trade of Nick Foles from the Jaguars to the Bears for the 140th pick in the 2020 NFL Draft. Foles to Chicago, reuniting him with Matt Nagy as the Bears look to spark their offense.

Chicago also declined Mitch’s fifth year option, telling fans all they needed to know about the situation.
Here we sit, approaching Week 10 and Nick Foles has been the starter for over a month now.
Foles had his magical run, but he isn’t fit to be the franchise quarterback of the Bears.
To Nagy’s credit, his offense is only as good as his quarterback allows it to be.
No matter how good the play calling is, if the quarterback doesn’t execute, it’s on him.
Regardless, who knows what can happen in the future for this Bears team.
Maybe they make a push for a quarterback in the offseason.
Say, Matt Ryan?
All I know is, they wouldn’t be having these problems if they had just drafted Patrick Mahomes a couple years ago.
