Top 10 pick?!
The Bears were 8-8 last year, didn't add any notable talent other than a rookie QB (and a rookie 2nd round LT....which is another position thatcan also really struggle in year 1) and now have a much harder schedule. You think they are going to finish with a better record than last year?
Go back to 2017 during Trubisky's 1st season to remember what rookie QB's typically look like. You remember 2017? The team was 5-11 with a terrible offense and despite that you were still excited about Trubisky.
That's what happen when you play a rookie QB. The team sucks, the offense sucks and yet fans still head into the following season with a lot of hope (right or wrong). The vast majority of the time that is just the way it goes.
And your defense is obviously going in the wrong direction. They were great 3 seasons ago, really good 2 seasons ago and just above average last year. Where are they going to get better this coming year now that they lost their best secondary player and their best players have just gotten 1 year older?
Don't let the fact that the Bears made the playoffs last year in one of the weirdest years the NFL has ever seen fool you. They were a bad team last year. And they didnt do anything to get better for THIS YEAR. Sure in the future Fields might be a top 10 QB. But next year.....he likely is going to be pretty bad. That's just the way it is with rookie QB's more often than not.
And if you don't believe me would you trust Vegas odd makers? Because they are betting Chicago is a bottom 10 team this coming year too.
