Since the second half of the 2018 season, the Chicago Bears have had one of the worst passing offenses in the NFL.

The incompetency of the Bears' passing offense was none more prevalent than it was during the past two seasons with quarterback Justin Fields. While Fields was one of the most electric quarterbacks to ever play the position for the Bears, his passing skills left much to be desired.

The Bears struggled to reach 200 passing yards in a game. In fact, over the last two years, the Bears had the most games in which they failed to register at least 200 passing yards.

The Bears' passing offense has been horrific over the last two seasons.

It's no wonder why it was an easy decision for the Bears to move on from Fields. The production that the Bears were getting in the passing game was not something that could lead to sustained success.

There is a common trend with the two other teams that the Bears are grouped with. The Carolina Panthers had a revolving door at the quarterback position during the 2022 season, and 2023's first overall selection, Bryce Young, struggled in his rookie campaign. For the Giants, looking beyond the overall questions that surround Daniel Jones, Jones only appeared in six games last season, and social media sensation Tommy DeVito only had one game of 200+ passing yards last season.

Caleb Williams did not pass for over 200 yards in only three games over his last two seasons at USC. While this does not mean that Williams will enter the NFL and immediately cross 200 passing yards in each game that he plays in, this stat does show how low the floor is for the Bears' new starting quarterback to prove to be a definite upgrade for the team's passing offense.
