The 2020 Bears season ended Sunday with a 21-9 loss to the Saints in the NFC Wild Card game, and right away there was a lot of questions about decisions about the teams future.
Wednesday some of those decisions were made, as it was announced that general manager Ryan Pace and head coach Matt Nagy would be returning in their positions for 2021.
Bears’ GM Ryan Pace and HC Matt Nagy will return for the 2021 season. “I was impressed with both of them,” said
Bears’ Chairman George McCaskey.

The 42-year-old Nagy is 71-60 in three seasons as the head coach of the Bears, while Pace has done a solid job rebuilding the roster.
Now that the GM and coach are settled, the team does have to figure out what to do about quarterback Mitch Trubisky, and if he’s going to be back next season.
“Everything is on the table right now,” Pace said Wednesday in regard to the future of Trubisky.

Another decision that the team has to make is about young up and coming wide out Allen Robinson.
He’s gone over 1000 yards in each of the last two seasons, and in 2020 made 102 catches, coming into his own as one of the better wide outs in the game.
Bears WR Allen Robinson is now scheduled to head into free agency at the age of 27. Over his past two seasons, he has 200 catches for 2,397 yards and 13 TD.

It will be an interesting offseason in Chicago, and with the big decisions coming about Trubisky and Robinson, it could be an expensive one as well.
