Chicago Bears: Why 3-13 Prediction is Dead Wrong

You might be optimistic about the Chicago Bears in 2015.  Marc Trestman is out and a proven, real NFL head coach like John Fox is in.  Mel Tucker is the defensive backs coach for Alabama (how did he score that gig???) and Vic Fangio, a legitimate defensive coordinator, will be at the controls of a new-look Bears defense.

You might be buying in, but some people aren’t.  For instance, USA Today doesn’t think the Bears are going to be very good at all.  In fact, they think the Bears are going to be awful; worse than last year’s 5-11 abomination.  According to USA Today’s season predictions, they have the Bears pegged for three wins.  Three.  That’s worst in the NFC North, the NFC and the entire NFL.

"Bears (3-13): Defense will look almost entirely different in terms of personnel and scheme. They can only hope QB Jay Cutler looks entirely different from 2014 version under new coaching staff."

Talk about a buzzkill!  I’m not ready to panic just yet. So why is USA Today dead wrong?
