Chicago Bears: 24th overall, 3rd in NFC North

Now, before anything else is written, I must say this: Boo! *jokingly*

Alright, now that I’m clear-minded, I must say that this seems like a low placement. I know that might seem like a “homer” statement, but the duo of Allen Robinson and Darnell Mooney alone is one that should warrant a higher ranking.

There are at least two teams above the Chicago Bears that I can almost guarantee to have worse wide receiver corps. Those two teams are the Baltimore Ravens and the Atlanta Falcons.

So, based on Pro Football Focus (PFF) grades alone, the Chicago Bears have better wide receivers than the Baltimore Ravens, however, the Falcons are still slightly higher.

On paper, I see the differences, but on the field, I see Darnell Mooney being a better option than Russell Gage, and I see him being more than 0.1 of a PFF grade better than Olamide Zaccheaus; no offense, Mr. Zaccheaus.

Now, at the end of the day, these rankings aren’t a complete correlation with how the teams will play all season.

But, if we’re being honest, we all know the Chicago Bears’ wide receivers are better than the Baltimore Ravens. We don’t need a list to tell us otherwise.

Editor’s Note: The fact that the Chicago Bears are below the Baltimore Ravens negates the rest of the rankings. It is blasphemy to think that a top-eight wide receiver over the last two seasons (Allen Robinson) does not automatically put the Bears over the likes of the Ravens. Now throw in a budding player in Darnell Mooney and this wide receiver corps is being disrespected, “homerism” or not. Carry on.
