Yes. How talent is added to this roster will be the determining factor in all this. As for Claypool, I'm not judging it yet. I don't think he magically forgot how to play receiver. We'll see how he does going through a full off season with Fields and with some added talent at the receiver position.
I'm in the same boat. Poles is taking some flak for the trade (ironically, he was taking flak for "not doing enough at WR" beforehand too) and right now it looks like a loser for the Bears. But Getsy said his O is tough to learn and takes time. Claypool is a talented receiver whose deep ball ability meshes well with Fields. We just didn't have good enough pass pro to utilize it much and CC got the injury bug late in the year.
I still have hope that Claypool will be a weapon for us next season.
I hope Claypool does well for the Bears. He's only under contract for next year. Same with Mooney. I hope both of them have a fantastic 2023. I still believe the Bears need to bring in the best WR they can. There are different ways this could go after '23. I'm not (at all) worried about it. But I do believe it makes sense to bring in more talent. And get the best you can get. Having all 3 guys (our existing two and the new guy) is a good thing. And not overkill. Heck, I'd like to see the bears bring in 2 quality WRs if the rest of our WRs are basically trash or ST's guys. And if a solid TE drops to us I'm all over that draft too. Kmet's contract ends too in '23. It may make sense to snag Michael Mayer or another stud TE, if for some crazy reason one would fall in this draft (I don't expect that but...).
