Fields will naturally run less and pass more once we get the OL upgraded in the middle and draft a true WR1 with first round pick. We might have to get our WR2 from FA or draft if Claypool can’t hack it. Don’t know yet. At most, that means we just need to add 3 or 4 guys to this offense. If Poles can find the RIGHT 3 or 4 guys, I am very confident that the Bears will have a top-5 scoring offense in 2023. That is ALL we need on offense. Anything more is overkill at the expense of defense. And it will be a sustainable run-strong offense like the Ravens with Lamar Jackson.
Yep, it takes one bad hit or slide and boom, the season can be over. That shoulder happens on his throwing arm, in 2-3 years when the team is good, then what?
And teams are already shutting it down when it matters. Make Fields sit there and be a qb, and he cannot hit open wr's in those instances. It appears Fields is looking less for his WR's and routes and more for an opening to gain 4-5 yards w/his legs in this last game in that last drive.
This O isn't going to work longterm unless the Bears do what Balt did, and 100% commit to building it; and even then, what has Balt done in the playoffs when it matters?
The worst thing that this team, GM, HC can do is use these last few weeks a proof they need to center on the Def.
If Poles doesn’t pour a significant amount of resource into the defensive
front-7, we are going to continue scoring 30 ppg next year and still get beat at the end of 4th quarter because we can’t get a defensive stop when most needed.
Finally, “getting the offense fixed fixed first” means drafting WR1 in first round. That’s where I worry Poles will disappoint both of us.
if fields is always hurt b/c he has to run or get destroyed it won't matter either. The NFL is a O league, you have to score to win to get into the playoffs before def matters.
