Kevin Warren inspires at least one Chicago Bears fan


The other day Chicago Bears season ticket holders received a message in my Dad’s inbox reminding them that the deadline for renewal and payment is March 22nd.

In a personalized email, “Mr. Bears President and CEO Kevin Warren began by thanking Sullivan for his support, noting that both Warren and season ticket holders “share the same passion and enthusiasm to bring a Super Bowl victory and a new world to the Chicagoland area.” -class fixed roof stadium.”

This was a bit confusing, because my father had never talked about his ambition to bring a new, world-class fixed-roof stadium and had no faith that the current owners would bring another Super Bowl to the Chicagoland area, much less Chicago.

Anyway, let’s get back to the letter. Warren cited the “proven additional leadership” from the recent hirings of offensive coordinator Shane Waldron and defensive coordinator Eric Washington and name-dropped two “transformational” players who have “activated our roster,” namely DJ Moore and Montez Sweat.

There was no mention of Justin Fields, who played the only position that mattered to my father and had season tickets since Jack Concannon became the starting quarterback. He’s seen a lot of Bears quarterbacks and is still waiting for someone besides Jim McMahon who he thinks can throw the football accurately.

Warren was probably trying to avoid the only topic of conversation allowed on Chicago sports talk radio – “Are you going to keep Justin Fields or are you going to draft Caleb Williams?” – and he didn’t want anyone to understand anything from his carefully chosen words. Understandable. The long-running drama will play out until the first day of the NFL draft on April 25, a month after the ticket renewal deadline ends.

Why would you say good things about Fields if he could potentially lose his job?

Quarterback situation aside, Warren let season ticket holders know it’s exciting to consider the Bears’ future “with strong draft capital (including two top-10 picks) and a healthy salary cap situation.” This showed my father that the Bears planned to “out-Lion” the Lions; It’s certainly a foreign concept, but one that sounds good after Detroit’s immediate success with the right draft picks, signings, acquisitions and coaches.

“We could be Detroit,” he said for the first time in his life.

Bear Saints

Bears President and CEO Kevin Warren watches from the bench before the game against the Saints on Nov. 5, 2023, at the Superdome in New Orleans.

It wasn’t until the letter’s ninth paragraph that Warren got to the point: After months of evaluating season ticket prices and “market considerations that impact our business decisions,” the Bears It was decided to increase ticket prices by 8%. Warren said this was done after “careful thought and analysis.”

That seemed like a significant jump for a 7-10 team that finished last in the NFC North and didn’t know who its starting quarterback would be in 2024. However, Warren announced there would be “improvements to the matchday experience”. He said improvements were made to food, beverage and stadium access last season.

“We will consider the holistic fan experience this offseason as we evaluate our retail and concession operators,” he added.

Is it holistic? Does this mean better food options? Concession lines that don’t accidentally merge with the bathroom line and cause congestion in the concourse? Real covers for a pop?

Include us too.

Warren concluded her message to paying customers by explaining that the organization was “making progress on our work.” stadium development plan” and they will be sure to let us know when their “deliberate and intentional processes” lead to a new site.

Hmm. The Bears stadium saga has already outlasted the Matt Nagy era. White Sox release renderings The proposed South Loop stadium opened Wednesday, just three weeks after news leaked about talks with the “78” developer. Perhaps the Sox can loan the Bears their new stadium consultant to teach them the preferred Chicago method of securing fan support and public financing: Whet their appetite, get approval, and present them with the bill.

Stadium and quarterback situations aside, Warren assured us the Bears are on the rise, and it’s thanks to season ticket holders like my dad.

“Together we will build a World Championship team,” he wrote.

There was no mention of any member of the McCaskey family, which owns the Bears, an omission that made us curious.

We still have the “thank you” letter President Michael McCaskey sent to “Dear Season Ticket Subscriber” on February 25, 1994. “New era with Dave Wannstedt and the coaching staff; “There are many exciting victories ahead of us.” Thirty years later, a new era begins with the same owners and overly optimistic sales pitches.

Warren turned corporate letter writing into an art form, and as a result, we were eager to innovate.

“Beat!” wrote in conclusion.

Kevin, you’ve got us down to “strong draft capital.” The check is in the mail.

As for the invitation to help you and general manager Ryan Poles build the team, my dad has a lot of suggestions. After watching another Bears-free Super Bowl from his comfy chair on Sunday, he’ll send you an email with some “careful thinking and analysis” about Bears coaching and play calling, what to do with the No. 1 pick, and how to do it. To keep bathroom lines moving faster at Soldier Field.

Take your time before getting back to him.

You have until April 24th.
