I do feel like the offense is a better O than the last two seasons. You look at the unit and can see some positives (and not just Fields). It could be fun watching the unit this season if they can take some steps in the right direction. Certainly 14 points isn't going to get it done in the NFL. But the team left points on the field Sunday and there were things that can, and probably will get cleaned up there. And Fields will enable this O to be more explosive when he finally starts. I'm cautiously optimistic.
LINK Chicago Bears offense improves despite Week 1 loss
Despite the Week 1 loss to the Los Angeles Rams, the Chicago Bears offense did show some improvements. There is still much to improve, however.
All I can say is the O wasn't completely embearassing. So I guess that qualifies as improvement.
We are so accustomed to awful offense that we think 200 yards passing and 14 points is "an improvement".
Bears O is still long way from good.
I was thinking the same thing. The bar is set so low here on offense. Basically, in a game like last week (especially in front of a national audience) you just hope that it's not an embarrassment game. Just go out and don't crap the bed on offense. If the Bears do that then it's an improvement over last year, and the year before, and most of the years before that. 200 yards passing and 14 points and an end zone int to kill our drive - is our version of winning a Super Bowl :-)
I'm not complaining. Just saying we set the bar at an epic low level here in Chicago. It's our "reality" here.
