Word last week was that the Bears would release kicker Cody Parkey after the first year of the four-year deal he signed with the team last year.In an appearance on NFL Network from the Scouting Combine in Indianapolis Chicago Bears Hoodie , head coach Matt Nagy confirmed that Parkey is finished in Chicago. Parkey was 23-of-30 on field goals and 42-of-45 on extra points in his lone season with the Bears.ďWeíve talked to Cody and Cody knows were going to go on in a different direction,Ē Nagy said. ďIt was a healthy talk, he took it like a true professional. We wish him the best.ĒParkeyís release will result in over $5 million in dead money on the Chicago cap if heís a pre-June 1 cut and just over $4 million if heís designated as a post-June 1 cut, but the team obviously feels thatís less painful than holding onto the kicker who double doinked a potential game-winning kick off the upright and crossbar in Januaryís playoff loss to the Eagles. In what has felt like an extremely quick season, the Chicago Bears find themselves heading into their final four games of the 2018 regular season.The good news? They are currently (8-4) and still hold a (1.5) game lead in the NFC North.The bad news? They are coming off a tough loss and now head back home to face an (11-1) Los Angeles Rams team that has been near impossible to beat.Much like their Week 11 meeting with the Minnesota Vikings (that also happened to be flexed into Sunday Night Football), this will be yet another good measuring stick for a team that is looking to go from worst to first in the matter of one season.The playoffs are coming quick and currently, the Bears are positioned very well. Even with a loss on Sunday, that still wouldnít change. But it could make things a little more tight.With a big game on Sunday and plenty of cautious optimistic still in the air, letís dive into Week 14ís mailbag.One could argue that Trey Burtonís lack of production over the past three games stems from a change at quarterback and that could be right. But even so, in Mitchell Trubiskyís last game against the Minnesota Vikings, Burton had just one catch for nine yards.Over his last three games, he has five catches for 37 yards and no touchdowns. While itís not ideal, itís also key to remember that the Bears offense features new primary pass catchers each week. Although Iím sure the quarterback situation has not helped, Taylor Gabriel has also seen peaks and valleys throughout the season as well.Timothy T. Ludwig-USA TODAY SportsI really think that more than anything , the Bears have plenty of weapons on the offense, and from a week-to-week basis it will just feature different players. Donít be surprised to see Burtonís production spike back up over the next few games. So the short answer here would be itís the design of the system more than the players. Itís not likely something that will change any time soon in terms of sporadic production from skill players in this offense.This is a good question and one that is somewhat hard to answer right now. Even so, Iím leaning toward not picking up Leonard Floydís fifth-year option at the moment.Thatís not because I donít think heís a player worth keeping around, but the price of this past yearís option for an edge rusher was $14.2 million for the 2015 draft class. That number will jump up slightly when looking at what Floyd will cost, so it will likely be over $15 million.A few things to keep in mind with this option. It only guarantees players that figure IF they get injured. So, itís possible that they could opt to exercise that option and then pull it before next yearís free agency, if heís healthy. The problem? 2018 would be the first year that he hasnít finished the year on injured reserve, which makes picking up his option even more risky.If I were general manager Ryan Pace, Iíd swallow my pride and roll the dice on Floyd by declining the option. Let him play out the final year of his rookie deal and assess the situation from there. Heís a valuable member of the defense, but heading into the final four games of the season, he has just two sacks. That doesnít mean heís been bad by any means, but you also donít pay a non-sack artists that type of money, even for one season. Especially when youíll likely have to work out some sort of team-friendly deal with Aaron Lynch in the coming months and have Khalil Mack making an average of $23.5 million-per-year.If the Bears finish the season on a (1-3) skid, itís likely theyíll still make the playoffs. The problem? Theyíd likely be playing on the road to open up the wild card round and coming off a (1-4) stretch. Thatís not exactly ideal on multiple accounts.Iíd be very surprised if a (9-7) record won the Bears the division Aaron Lynch Jersey , which means theyíd either be on the road against the Vikings or the winner of the NFC East (likely the Dallas Cowboys). That wouldnít be a death sentence by any means, but like most teams, the Bears have played much better at home.My best guess is that one win in their final four games likely gets them the sixth seed and they would play Minnesota in back-to-back weekends on the road. Another situation the Bears simply donít want to be in.With all of that being said, I still think itís more than realistic to expect a (10-6) finish and a home playoff game. Whether or not thatís hosting the Vikings is a different story, but it would be a much more ideal scenario for them heading into the playoffs.I absolutely think that Jordan Howard is playing in his last few games with the Bears. Iím sure that some may still disagree, but I simply donít feel like Howard is a good fit for this offense and have had that feeling dating back to March.I think itís becoming pretty evident that the light isnít just going to click on for this teamís current running game. I also donít think all of the struggles in the running game have been on Howard, but I do think they could benefit from having a more athletic back.As far as potential replacements go, I would assume that a well-priced free agent and/or a mid round draft pick would do the trick. Iím not sure LeíVeon Bell makes a ton of sense, purely based on financial ramifications.They could choose to sign a more affordable free agent like Tevin Coleman or even a guy like Mark Ingram, but only time will tell on that. There are two things Iím pretty confident in: Howard being dealt this off-season and Bell not being a Bear.I wouldnít expect Trubiskyís best game on Sunday night. That is for sure. Whether thatís rust, the Rams defense getting better with Aqib Talib back or even the big stage of Sunday Night Football.With that being said, I do think that Trubiskyís health shouldnít be a concern moving forward. Much like Allen Robinson and Mack a few weeks back, the Bears chose to play it safe, which means the second-year quarterback should be as close to 100% as one could be coming off an injury.The Rams have an excellent front seven. So the Bears will have their hands full Kevin White Color Rush Jersey , especially on the interior. Unlike Chase Daniel, Trubiskyís athleticism should play a big role on Sunday nightís game and should allow him to escape some of the pressure Wade Phillips and his unit will bring.The same as it did heading into the season. Iíd be shocked if he was back next year. Heís been a healthy scratch more than heís played and general manager Ryan Pace made it pretty evident they had little faith left when they choose to spend big resources on a trio of receivers this past off-season.Itís unfortunate for Kevin White, but at this point itís time for the Bears to cut bait and move on.Iíd still be surprised to see Vic Fangio actually land a head coaching job in the NFL, personally.Over the past few years, I have spoken with a few people that have all echoíed the same thing. While Fangio is a very good coordinator, his personality and age donít exactly make him a sexy head coaching candidate. Couple that with the league wanting offensive minded candidates and it doesnít bode very well for him, period.By the off-chance he does land one of the many jobs that will be upcoming (good for him if he does), Iíd assume that Todd Bowles and even Mike Pettine (pending his future in Green Bay) would be two primary candidates that have relationships with head coach Matt Nagy.Pettine was someone who was a prime candidate this past off-season if Fangio was not retained and itís been well documented the type of relationship Bowles and Nagy have. The good news? The Bears have a ton of talent on the defensive side of the ball, even if Fangio leaves, either one of these two names should be able to come in and find similar results. Iíd be very surprised if Trubisky didnít play on Sunday night.At least the way it was explained to me and how Nagy has approached it during his press conferences is that theyíve had a plan all along. That plan has been that theyíd rather be overly cautious (sitting him at 80-90% against the Giants) than rush him back.I do believe he could have played in Week 13 with a full week of practice, but the Bears made the decision much earlier that they wouldnít even let him throw the ball until this past Friday. Itís a decision many will question and thatís totally understandable but even so, the plan appears to always have been having him back for this Sunday night.
