Many look at the current roster and wonder, what has this team done to help Justin Fields develop in 2022? Well, I think it is only fair for Chicago Bears fans to at least question how this offense is going to do any better this season compared to last season. Let me start off by saying that I don’t believe the roster is as bad as many think. Too many national media analysts are ranking the Chicago Bears dead last in their power rankings.

I’m sorry, the team might be rebuilding but they still have some quality players. There is no way that this Chicago Bears team ends up with the first pick in the 2023 NFL Draft. It just isn’t possible. If you want to assume somewhere between the fifth-overall pick and the 15th then I am not going to put up much of a fight. However, anywhere in the top five just doesn’t compute with me.

Which Chicago Bears roster has a better offensive group?

Even if the offense doesn’t improve (was ranked 26th in offensive DVOA last season), the defense shouldn’t see much of a drop-off. In fact, with the addition of Kyler Gordon and Jaquan Brisker, the secondary should be much approved. The loss of Khalil Mack and Akiem Hicks hurts, but in 2021 the team finished 13th in defensive DVOA, and those two combined for only l6 games last season due to injuries. With an improved secondary and a new defensive system, there’s no reason the defense shouldn’t be in the top 10 for defensive DVOA this year.

We aren’t here to keep talking about the defense though (that article will come later). The point here is that the team is going to be better in 2022 than many national analysts think. The question is, will the offense be any better this year? Let’s take a look at the offensive roster.
