We have seen just how calculated Ryan Poles is as a general manager. This season is full of hope, but most fans’ expectations are that the Chicago Bears will not be a playoff contender. Could a 3-0 start to the season have swayed some of those people’s views? Maybe. However, we shouldn’t overreact to the record. What we can hold onto in regards to hope is that the offense looked like a legit offense and Justin Fields continues to show exponential growth and development.

Going undefeated in the preseason is not how teams win Super Bowls. In fact, when the Lions went 0-16 in 2008, that team was undefeated in the preseason. Yep. It means nothing that this team went undefeated, but the discipline and lack of penalties speak more to me. The offensive scheme looked competent. The defense shows enough flashes. Matt Eberflus didn’t look started by anything. Finally, and most importantly, Justin Fields looked amazing. Dare I say elite? Alright, too soon, but remember where you heard it first.

Does Ryan Poles have any more trades in his pocket for the Chicago Bears?

We have seen teams hit ahead of schedule. That’s not necessarily what this is for Chicago right now. Ryan Poles needs to keep his focus on the long term, while also looking to add talent whenever possible. Looking at these potential trades, I am sure many will throw out the quote “this is no longer Ryan Pace’s team” or something along those lines. Fair enough, but any of these three players I am about to list make sense for both the short term and the long term.
