New Regime in Chicago
The Chicago Bears 2022 Outlook is one of a transition year. Matt Eberflus and Ryan Poles take over as Head Coach and General manager. The defense that has been the staple of the organization for the last 2 decades is finally undergoing a rebuild. Akiem Hicks and Khalil Mack are gone. Same with Allen Robinson on the offensive side of the ball. There is a clear motive that Ryan Poles and the Bears front office are turning the page on the old edition of the Bears, and are looking to revamp the organization. And that starts with Justin Fields. Fields showed some flashes and some good moments in 2021. Particularly in the latter half of the season.
The Chicago Bears 2022 Outlook on offense is one of many question marks. Is Justin Fields the long term answer at Quarterback? Will the offensive line be competent enough to keep Fields upright? Will they be able to create holes for running backs to hit? Outside of Robert Quinn, Eddie Jackson, and Roquan Smith, who else will step up on the defense? Can a Head Coach coming from the defensive side of the ball provide the right type of environment for a young, developing quarterback? These are just some of the question marks around the Chicago Bears this season.
Is there Enough Talent?
The Bears didn’t just lose Hicks, Mack, and Robinson this offseason. James Daniels on the line is gone. Wide Receivers Jakeem Grant, Marquis Goodwin, and Damiere Byrd are also gone. Alec Ogletree, Jesse James, Jason peters, Tarik Cohen, Jimmy Graham, and Danny Trevathan are all gone as well. The Bears were without a 1st round pick in the draft after trading it away last year to move up and get Justin Fields. They haven’t managed to replenish the talent pool, or at least with proven talent. let’s get into the Chicago Bears 2022 Outlook.
