The Chicago Bears look ahead after a hot 2-0 start to the 2020 NFL season.

The Chicago Bears entered the 2020 NFL season with a unique outlook. After a NFC North title `season, the Bears stumbled to an 8-8 finish last year in a season where the squad looked like a whisper of itself from the year prior. This lowered the bar for most fans, but left them confused as to what they should expect this year.

After two games, the verdict is still out on this team. Despite being one of eleven teams that are 2-0, it’s been hard to get a grip on whether or not this squad is the real deal. This is mostly due to the fact that the Bears played two teams that have not yet won a game and done so in unconvincing fashion. But regardless, this trend will continue as Matt Nagy’s team looks toward their Week 3 matchup against the Atlanta Falcons.

At this point in the article, I must remind Chicago Bears fans how far this team has already come since last year. For the first time in his young career, Mitchell Trubisky has looked like an actual Pro Bowl quarterback.

Not a substitute for a guy who went to the Super Bowl, but an actual elite talent in the league. This team may not have played a full game yet, but there is a spark on this team that we haven’t seen in the past, sending us into the newly minted Cautiously Optimistic Fan Zone.

Having said that, it would take a miracle for this squad to somehow pull off a 16-0 season, but that doesn’t mean that they can’t start off the season with a winning streak. The question today isn’t a question of how talented this squad is. Rather, today we’ll be looking to see how long Chicago can continue to squeeze past their opponents and keep a goose egg in the loss column.
