With so much attention this offseason focused on getting Justin Fields the help he so clearly needs to succeed, the Chicago Bears got him help in different areas than fans likely expected.

Many fans were clamoring for a wide receiver to be drafted early for the Bears, as the belief was that Justin Fields needs more than Darnell Mooney to be a star in the NFL.

However, getting Justin Fields some pass-catching weapons isn’t the only way Ryan Poles and Matt Eberflus hope to support their franchise quarterback.

The Chicago Bears have brought in a bunch of help at the offensive line spots

It was evident in the Super Bowl between the Los Angeles Rams and the Cincinnati Bengals that even with the dynamic duo of Joe Burrow and Ja’Marr Chase, the final play of that Super Bowl gave insight into why pass-catching weapons aren’t all a quarterback needs.

Now, Aaron Donald can and has beat the best offensive linemen in the league — which gives reason for Aaron Donald to get the respect and praise he does — but there’s also reason to believe that if the Bengals focused more on their offensive line, their offseason could be looking a lot different.

That said, the Bengals made a valiant effort this offseason to get Joe Burrow the help he deserves, and there’s reason to believe that Ryan Poles and Matt Eberflus took notice of that and did something similar with their franchise quarterback in mind.
