The Chicago Bears have been blasted by most analysts this offseason as a team that will fall flat on its face and finds itself not only outside of the playoffs but also on the bottom of the NFC North. These five bold predictions say otherwise.
The Chicago Bears are heading into a very important year. After the team went 12-4 and won the NFC North division in Matt Nagy’s first season as head coach, it fell from grace and struggled to reach .500 on the year. Now, the team is at somewhat of a crossroads. With a poor showing as many analysts are predicting, both Nagy and Ryan Pace could find themselves standing in the unemployment line come 2021 despite being under contract until 2022.
Trying to predict the outcome of the 2020 season is pointless, but nonetheless it is fun. Rather than try and determine how well the team will do this year, it is more fun to think about some of the achievements the team or players might reach. When it comes to the record, I have them winning 11 games and reaching the playoffs, but what is the fun in just thinking about the record?
Instead, I wanted to come up with some predictions for not only the team but also for some individuals. Just realize, these are going to be bold predictions. I am not going to predict that Allen Robinson finishes the year with 100-plus catches, 1,000-plus yards and eight or more touchdowns. This is very achievable and there is no fun in that prediction.
Instead, I will be looking at some of the more far-out possibilities for the Chicago Bears in 2020.
