Hey kids. Today's the day, probably, maybe. Who knows.

I'll update this thread with official news and if necessary will navigate new threads and so forth. Feel free to discuss anything Bears/Pace/Nagy/Ownership. God help us all.

Waiting with great anticipation, while the cloud of Bears disappointment looms overhead.

May the axe be swift and cut clean…

Tom Thayer on 670 indicated that whatever happens today it’ll be through a Zoom call - nobody camping out at Hallas Hall or the likes. Doesn’t know yet -Mully added nobody knows - what’s going to happen.

Shefty is pretty official in my book, he's pretty good about saying when things are opinion vs fact in his reporting

There's a reason we haven't heard anything regarding Pace yet. He's not going anywhere, but the team is working to put together media rebuttals to justify why they're keeping him in the organization, whether it's as GM or otherwise.

Can’t we give Pace the very important title of “President of owners liaison office” or something?

Agree. There isn’t any other explanation for it.

Not upset about either of them being fired, but admittedly surprised about Pace.

Wow.

A wasted year too late, but still.
I really didn't think they had the balls to do it.

Flores and Zimmer fired too, which means those are perhaps perceived as better opportunities than Chicago. We shall see. Perhaps a brand new President of Football Ops, a football guy like Trace Armstrong, could turn this into the right situation.
