Brady Poppinga: Reason For Chicago Bears’ Struggles Starts With GM

BearsThe Chicago Bears are going through some tough times this season, to put it mildly.

They haven’t won a home game in 2014 and allowed 106 total points in their last two road games against the New England Patriots and Green Bay Packers.

Despite having offensive weapons like Matt Forte, Brandon Marshall and Martellus Bennett, the Bears are struggling to win games because of their atrocious defense, which has given up the fifth-most passing yards per game this season.

Former Packers linebacker Brady Poppinga believes the Bears’ problems start at the front office — and says so in his latest post for the website, Football By Football. He questions some of the moves general manager Phil Emery has made throughout his tenure, such as firing coach Lovie Smith, parting ways with longtime linebacker Brian Urlacher and giving quarterback Jay Cutler a long-term contract.

It’s been a brutal season for the Bears, but looking ahead, Poppinga anticipates “major changes” in the organization.
