No deceptively earnest coach speak or sparse front office talk is a concern to the Chicago faithful at this point. All fans want to hear is a direct declaration from team chairman George McCaskey regarding if he is firing anyone or not.
With another loss, especially a bad one, and the Bears ownership may not be too far away from choosing the same endgame that the Lions recently did.

It was another terrible Monday Night Football loss and sadly, another game that was ripe for the Bears to take. Instead, more of the same questionable play and inherent problems defined another flat performance.
Time is running out for the Bears and their chances to make this season a good one, here’s how the Bears can take the right step in reinvigorating their season.
All the same head-scratching issues on offense showed up again in this game as Chicago yielded one 3 and out after another with too many stalled drives and turnovers sprinkled in to lead to a victory against any opponent.

In their second loss in a six-day span, the Bears improved on a limp Monday Night performance, but familiar troubles reared their ugly heads again while some new ones popped up and slapped the heads of others.
Things look bleak right now for the Bears, but everything can change with a victory this Sunday against a Saints team that should challenge but aren’t too tough to overcome.
