With the upcoming schedule being absolutely brutal, it seems impossible for the Bears to get through it successfully. But as the article says, this is the NFL and crazy things can happen. It would be ironic if after all of this we find out the team - yes, this 2021 team is good. Like really good.
It’s a question I posed on The Hoge & Jahns Podcast (with my own skepticism thrown in, of course) after the Bears beat the Bengals in Week 2.
They followed that conversation up with 47 yards of offense in Cleveland.
But things tend to change from week-to-week in the NFL, and the root of the question was really this: If the Bears have a good defense AND Justin Fields turns out to be a legitimately good NFL quarterback even as a rookie, doesn’t that make the Bears a pretty competitive team?
We are not a good team. But, if the O starts clicking, and I believe we might be not too far from that, as we saw a glimpse in the 1st half 2 days ago.. Then we would be a good team. And that could happen as early as end of the season.
