At halftime, the Chiefs led the Bears, 31–0, and fans had plenty to say about it.
This Bears team is approaching lows I never thought possible after the Matt Nagy era.— Flo Ottis (@flo_ottis) September 24, 2023
The #Bears have never fired a head coach midseason.— Jacob Infante (@jacobinfante24) September 24, 2023
But if you keep Matt Eberflus after losing 31-0 at halftime - and a 3-17 record through 20 games - what message are you sending to the fans? To the players? This is simply unacceptable.
Man… I know we all laugh because they stink but like… Bears fans had actual hope this past off-season— Pat McAfee (@PatMcAfeeShow) September 24, 2023
The #Bears are really the worst team in the league through three games. It’s not even close. It’s pathetic - it’s just not acceptable.— Ben Devine (@Chicago_NFL) September 24, 2023
The game already looks out of reach for the Bears, putting a punctuation mark on a grueling week for the team and its fans. At best, Chicago may have to hope for avoiding a shutout. And perhaps holding the Chiefs to under 70 points.
Regardless, Fox doesn't seem interested in continuing to televise the carnage to a national America's Game of the Week audience. After halftime, the network switched coverage to the Cowboys-Cardinals matchup. Unfortunately, regional viewers have to stick with the Bears unless they turn the channel.
