Injury to White could be a “good break” for the Bears

You never want to see the word injury associated with your team’s first-round pick. Ever. This might be a stretch but this injury could be a blessing in disguise for the Bears. I’ll explain.

Only in a “worst-case” scenario, but if Jay has a hard time with the offense and/or the defense can’t stop anyone, they could end up with one of the worst records in the league. This would put them in the running for a top 5 draft pick for 2016. Many experts are forecasting a low number of wins for the 2015 Bears. If that all happens, White not being on the team will contribute to this and potentially set them up with a nice draft pick.

Outside of that, it’s bad news for a franchise that has had lots of bad news with first round picks–at least in recent history.

Silver linings: Another piece of good news, if the Bears finish .500 or below, they might be in a better position to hold onto their coordinators. Offensive coordinator Adam Gase and defensive coordinator Vic Fangio were both being considered for NFL head coaches before they ultimately ended up in Chicago.
