You have to ask yourself…
When the clock strikes midnight Saturday, only two teams will have completed the 2016 calendar year with fewer wins than the Bears: the Browns and 49ers. For every issue the Bears thought they’d solve this season, two or three others have sprung up. The current struggle feels like the most brutal of Chicago winters, cold and harsh and unrelenting. And as a new year closes in, significant questions continue piling up.
» With John Fox constantly reinforcing that professional football is a results-based business, what significance should be attached to his .290 winning percentage as Bears coach?
» Among the six other NFL head coaches who were hired in 2015—Gary Kubiak, Jack Del Rio, Dan Quinn, Rex Ryan, Todd Bowles and Jim Tomsula— where does Fox rank? (In victory total alone, he’s sixth.)
» Should it be alarming that 2016 head coaching hires Adam Gase and Ben McAdoo already have more wins in their first seasons than Fox has in two years with the Bears?
» With an offense that has scored only 28 touchdowns in 15 games, has coordinator Dowell Loggains shown enough to keep the controls for a second season?
