After years of disappointing results, the Chicago Bears decided to use this offseason to make some big changes in their organization. The brought in a new head coach, a new offensive coordinator, and a new GM. Unfortunately, none of these changes have really done much to improve the team’s results.
After the first 6 weeks of the season, the Chicago Bears have a 2-4 record. It’s actually a game worse than they were through 6 weeks last season and they suffered a particularly bad loss last week.
The Bears were at home on Thursday night against a 1-4 Washington Commanders team that had allowed each of their opponents to score at least 21 points and was allowing an average of 25.6 points per game.
The Bears lost 12-7.
In the aftermath of the loss, it seems the Bears are ready to begin trading one of their few appealing assets before the trade deadline. Today, Jason La Canfora reported that the he had heard from NFL executives that the Bears are ready to trade Robert Quinn before the deadline.

Quinn was a force for the Bears defense last season, racking up 18.5 sacks on his way to a Pro Bowl nomination and a spot on the All-Pro 2nd team. Unfortunately, he hasn’t been quite as impressive this season.
Through 6 games, Quinn has only recorded 1 sack, 2 quarterback hits, and has been a part of just 7 tackles.
While the numbers this season aren’t that great, he’ll surely attract some interest from teams in need of help with their pass rush who will be hoping he can recreate his performance from season.
