The Chicago Bears are a fairly underrated team for the 2020 season, but some of their players are being overhyped.

After a rough 2019 season, the Chicago Bears built up to make a playoff run. A lot of Chicago fans see this team as a playoff-caliber team with their defense back to its 2018 form (possibly better) and a rebuilt offense and coaching staff on offense.

They made key additions to bring in veterans like Jimmy Graham, Ted Ginn Jr., and Robert Quinn. They also brought in some young guys who need to prove themselves like Germain Ifedi and Artie Burns.

Essentially, in the Bears’ eyes, they made all the right moves to contend for the playoffs this season and potentially make a run. Some may disagree and question the Bears’ judgment, but Ryan Pace and Matt Nagy believe this team can make a run. I’m sure they know their seats are getting a little warmer.

Warning: Each player on this list is considered to be overhyped by the Chicago Bears’ fanbase. This does not mean they are bad players. This just means that Bears’ fans may think they are better players than their pasts have shown.

Before we start, I am going to give three honorable mention players. These players didn’t quite crack the list, but were in consideration.
