COVID-19 im­pact

Chicago Sun-Times - - SPORTS -

Op­ti­mist: Nagy’s 21st-cen­tury man­age­ment style — his abil­ity to max­i­mize the Zoom meet­ings and ad­just to the chal­leng­ing times — and the Bears’ over­all re­sponse to COVID-19 re­stric­tions prove to be a boon that al­lows them to hit the ground run­ning and stay healthy through the sea­son. And it gives them an edge.

Pes­simist: With­out a true bub­ble, not even the Bears’ best ef­forts to man­age the COVID-19 re­stric­tions can pre­vent the sea­son from go­ing off-track. In­juries are up be­cause no­body could train prop­erly dur­ing the off­sea­son, and out­breaks around the league cre­ate havoc with the sched­ule. The Bears fin­ish 6-6 and miss the play­offs, which are held in a bub­ble in Toronto and Ed­mon­ton.
