In the absence of enough information, it is difficult not to take make an educated guess about what the Chicago Bears might be planning. It has been 10 days since they fired GM Ryan Pace and head coach Matt Nagy. Thus far they have interviewed ten candidates for the general manager job and five candidates for head coach. In that time, only one person has received an invitation back for a second meeting.

This indicates the process is moving slow and methodically. The Bears aren’t going to be rushed into a decision until they’ve collected the data they want. Then something like the latest news update on Thursday happens. It started innocently enough. Albert Breer of the MMQB indicated that Indianapolis Colts defensive coordinator Matt Eberflus, the man who is getting that second interview, was set up for a meeting on Monday the 24th.
