The Chicago Bears are going through a lot right now.
They’re looking for their first win of the season, and they abruptly lost their defensive coordinator under somewhat murky circumstances.
With that in mind, HC Matt Eberflus told the press that he’s going to call the plays on defense starting in Week 4 and for the remainder of the season (via Andrew Siciliano), so they may not have any plans to find a replacement.
Matt Eberflus says he’ll call the Bears defense in Week 4, and “that’s the plan” for the rest of the season.

Alan Williams was a part of Eberflus’ original staff, serving as DC since 2022.
He had been the Indianapolis Colts’ defensive backs coach and was also a DC with the Minnesota Vikings from 2012-13.
His abrupt resignation was reportedly due to inappropriate activity on the job, but there hasn’t been any sort of clarity about that matter.
The Bears have dropped 13 straight games dating back to last season, and they’ve allowed at least 25 points in every single one of them, so it’s not like they could do a lot worse on that end of the field.
Even so, they’re biggest issue might be how they’re seemingly misusing Justin Fields.
They’re trying to make him a pocket passer, which has never been his biggest strength, and they’re not making him look good at all.
Fields’ frustration was made public with his latest comments, and this situation can only be reversed by winning.
That’s going to be a bit of a challenge in Week 4 when they face an angry Denver Broncos team looking to bounce back in a big way.
