Despite his track record before arriving in Chicago, Ryan Poles has slipped into the all too common pitfall of unfortunate luck as general manager of the Bears. The team currently sits at the bottom of the NFC North at 2-6, after an tough loss to the Los Angeles Chargers in front of the nation on Sunday night.
And now news has broken that Bears corner, Jaylon Johnson, has requested a trade out of Chicago hours before the trade deadline.
This news has set an already frustrated Bears fan base into angry overdrive on social media. Poles woke up on Halloween morning trending in the negative on X after the news came down.
Let’s go to the tweets..
Ryan Poles hasn’t done a damn thing but hire the worst coach in Chicago bears history and get rid of all of his best players just to stock pile draft picks.
I truly hate this dude right now.

The Fact Ryan Poles is allowing Jaylon Johnson Leave after letting Roquan Leave last year is completely negligent.
Letting young talented players leave is stupid. pic.twitter.com/PQu2zK8Jz2

I respect Ryan Poles’ general approach to contact negotiations, but I don’t kno how he plans to build a good team if he continues to get rid of all his good players. @NBAxJay1 is not only a good player, he’s a leader on that team, and this will reverberate throughout that locker… https://t.co/remZJKJIYx

Ryan Poles is just gonna hope his cornerback draft picks work out instead of paying one that has already shown he can play.
Refusing to pay veteran homegrown talent leaves a team in a constant state of rebuilding. https://t.co/wlOKuBiDEl

Listen… this isn’t the McCaskey’s.
You don’t make Khalil Mack the highest paid EDGE, Cutler the highest paid QB and give 70M to Robert Quinn if you’re cheap
They’re dumbasses for obvious reasons
This rests solely on Ryan Poles being a cheap ass bitch ass mother fucker#Bears

Ryan Poles was unable to reach an agreement with Roquan Smith last year and this year it seems to be Jaylon Johnson.
Does there come a point when the team just needs to pay their better guys?
The #Bears have had the most flexible cap space for 2 years in a row.

What do you think of the Bears shopping Jaylon Johnson? Are the fans right? Or are they being too tough on Poles and the Bears front office? Let me know in the comments.
