As the Chicago Bears get their offseason workouts ramped up, players and coaches met with the media today to discuss how the preparation is going. Head coach Matt Eberflus wasted no time in his 13-minute presser. Overall, he described how the coaching staff wants to teach their scheme with underlying importance built around the fundamentals of football.
When asked about Eddie Jackson not being present at Bears’ minicamp, Eberflus stated that he isn’t worried. He also mentioned that at this time of the year, players are dealing with a plethora of everything. They have ongoings in their personal lives and past injuries they’re still recovering from, and Eberflus isn’t concerned if players skip voluntary workouts.
Matt Eberflus Off To Good Start As Head Coach
The Chicago Bears retained a lot of players from the previous regime. Learning a new scheme and how not only a new head coach but a first-timer operates can be a tricky task heading into a new NFL season. Eberflus is very happy with the reception he got from the players based on his first day with the team.
The players responded well to the instructions and the overall vision that Eberflus is trying to get across.
“I saw really good execution today and that’s attributed to them paying attention to what we’re trying to do.”– Matt Eberflus on the Bears’ players
Bears Evaluating Everything To See What Guys Do Best
Eberflus has a ton of work ahead of his first season as an NFL head coach. He’s looking at every possibility within Bears’ personnel to put the best possible product on the field that he can. The coaches are willing to move players around to really get a feel for what they have. For example, offensive tackles Larry Borom and Teven Jenkins flipped sides on the line during Tuesday’s session.
Matt Eberflus’ vision for the 2022 Chicago Bears is pretty simple. Focus on building this team from the ground up and really hammer home the fundamentals. If one player does well in a certain position, he’s going to put him in the right spot to succeed.
This falls directly in line with what Bears’ GM Ryan Poles wants from this organization. If they can get the absolute best out of the personnel they have, the 2022 season could be a bigger success than anyone around the NFL expects out of the Chicago Bears.
