It’s no real secret that the Chicago Bears have struggled mightily under head coach Matt Eberflus, but one stat highlights just how bad things have gone with him at the helm in Chicago.
According to Chicago sports writer Daniel Greenberg, the Bears haven’t just struggled under head coach Matt Eberflus, they actually have the worst record they have ever had under any coach in the history of the historic franchise.
“Matt Eberflus is 3-16 as the head coach of the Chicago Bears and currently has the worst winning percentage of any coach that has ever coached the Bears,” Greenberg said in a tweet this week.

It’s pretty horrible news for the Chicago Bears who were undoubtedly hoping that Eberflus would help turn the franchise around after years of struggles. And as a result, NFL fans had plenty to say about it on social media.
Don’t win many games when your QB…let me put it like this
Trubisky 2020,(half the season as a backup): 2,055 yds, 17 TDs, 10 INTs, 53.8 QBR
Fields 2022,(THE starter): 2,242, 17, 11, 56.3
One got shipped off and replaced immediately, the other is “the future” https://t.co/MYH2GO16aX

I didn’t understand why were the Bears bringing him back after last season anyway. https://t.co/BIqzQBNVi4

I was a fan of him during the season last year, but man has that changed, you’ve lost 12 games in a row might be time to make a change like a competent franchise. https://t.co/3Cl16S7G4T

The Bears are 0-2 on the season and weren’t necessarily competitive throughout either of their two losses, so it’s safe to say that this season isn’t exactly headed the way Bears fans hoped, especially in the third season with quarterback Justin Fields leading the team.
We’ll have to see whether or not the team can turn the corner and win some games this season.
