Three questions remain unanswered for the Chicago Bears heading into 2020

The Chicago Bears had an extremely successful season in 2018, a year that gave most fans hope of a brighter future in the windy city. Mitchell Trubisky looked to be developing, the defense was the best in the league, and young stars were emerging on this squad. Chicago had a rare defensive candidate for MVP in Khalil Mack, and as the stars were emerging, it looked like the stars were aligning over this storied team.

But the following season, this success and promise came crashing down as soon as week one, when the Green Bay Packers stopped Chicago right in their tracks. The season would continue to crumble, as Chicago would miss the playoffs despite having a talented roster. At one point, these Bears would find themselves back in playoff contention, only to go on a two-game skid that knocked them out of the race.

Naturally, this down season left fans with questions, most of which Ryan Pace gave his best efforts to answer during the offseason. He covered the quarterback position by adding former Super Bowl MVP Nick Foles to the roster. He threw a lot of his resources toward acquiring a veteran tight end and a young pass catcher in the NFL Draft.

But in this league, you can’t fix everything. No team is perfect, so coaches and GMs have to work together to get everything right with limited power and money. So this begs the question: which questions were left unanswered this offseason?
