The Chicago Bears’ offense should be much-improved from a year ago. But, how far can this unit go? The short answer is: You’ll be surprised.

The 2018 Chicago Bears are one of the trendiest teams in football right now. Hey, if you’re reading this and not necessarily a fan, I’ve got news for you: It’s not too late to get on board. The hype train is open, and there is unlimited seating available. Sneak on now, before it’s too late and you’re called a fair weather fan.

I’m just saying.

In all seriousness, this Bears team should be fun to watch. Will they go out and win 11 or 12 games this season? That’s a bit of a stretch, but they will certainly be better than they were a year ago. Competing for a wildcard spot might not be too crazy of a thought if they can head into December with six or seven wins — you never know.

How will they do it, though? Well, it obviously starts on that 10th-ranked defense from 2017. That unit will need to take another step forward and finish somewhere in the top eight in order to be considered a playoff contender.

Second, and probably the more fun aspect of this team for fans, will be the offense taking a big — no, enormous — step forward. Under new head coach Matt Nagy, and with all of the weapons added this offseason, I see nothing less than an enormous step forward.

Just how good could this offense be, though? Will they make a jump from bottom feeders to middle of the pack? How about top-10? “Now, he’s sounding crazy,” you’re thinking. I’m not crazy. I’m just as confident as ever in this team. Take a look at some ridiculously bold predictions for this offensive group going into the 2018 season.
