The Bears' offensive line still doesn't take a step forward

If we're talking worst-case scenarios, then what happens if the Bears see Teven Jenkins go down with an injury? He's had concerns in the past. How about Nate Davis? What if the inconsistencies prove to stick around?

Braxton Jones has shown some good things, but he's also given us reason to believe he could be replaced, which is why the Bears went and drafted Kiran Amegadjie. Speaking of Amegadjie, what if the rookie isn't ready right away and needs time to develop? We could be looking at a couple of positions under fire across the offensive line.

For a rookie quarterback, that isn't a positive.

Caleb Williams looks nothing like what he's supposed to

Now this ... this is every Bears fan's worst nightmare. The team finally gets a generational talent at the quarterback position, but somehow, it all goes wrong.

it doesn't seem likely that Williams isn't anything like what he's supposed to be, but once again, this is the NFL and strange things happen all the time. If Williams somehow succumbs to the pressures of the NFL and proves more turnover-prone than fans would have liked, this season could be rough.

Again, Williams looks the part. By all accounts, he's going to be a very good quarterback in this league. But, as a rookie, there's always a good chance growing pains rear their ugly head.
