The 2022 NFL Draft is over. Free agency is nearly done. Minicamps are well underway and training camps are right around the corner. It’s way too early to know for sure how teams are going to perform this season. Teams like the Chicago Bears are even more difficult to read seeing they have a completely new regime. The offensive, defensive and special teams units are all going to see drastic changes. That doesn’t stop us from attempting to try and rank teams.

Right now, the national media is not too thrilled with what the Chicago Bears have to offer. There are plenty of power rankings already published and not one that I have seen has the team in the top 20. In fact, four of the power rankings I have read are completely wrong with their rankings and analysis.

These four national media outlets are way off base on the Chicago Bears

I know it’s easy to look at this team and think that they are going to be bad. I’m not an idiot (said like Matt Nagy). I understand that the Chicago Bears are going to struggle in 2022. There is no way I would bet on them winning the Super Bowl this season. I probably wouldn’t have them in the top 20 teams either despite the fact my Bear Goggles are always on too tight. The hope most of us have is that we see enough good this year that 2023 is when the real hopes of greatness start to hit hard.

Let’s take a look at the four outlets that were way off in their power rankings though.
