The Chicago Bears organization is reportedly prepared to make massive changes following the conclusion of the 2014 Regular Season.
Bears QB Jay Cutler acknowledged for the media this past week that “everyone could get axed” on the Monday following the Bears matchup with the Minnesota Vikings – a day typically referred to as “Black Monday”. That kind of sweeping change would not only spell the likely end for head coach Marc Trestman and GM Phil Emery (both in only their second years with the team), but also to long-time team President Ted Phillips, who has held the position for nearly 16 years.
In this past offseason, the Bears gave QB Jay Cutler a lucrative contract extension that made him the highest paid offensive player in the NFL in 2014. Thought Cutler owns many Bears franchise passing records, he has led the team to only one playoff appearance and one win in six seasons with the team. In 2014 Cutler leads the NFL in INTs with 18 – his second time leading the league in INTs since joining the team in 2009.
Among one of the possible replacement for the Bears head coach would likely be Mike Shanahan – Cutler’s head coach in Denver from 2006 to 2008 – who was out of football in 2014, but has stated his interest in returning to coaching.
