As the Chicago Bears enter their fifth offseason with Ryan Pace as General Manager, the Bears know that they have the potential to be a Super Bowl team, if they make all the right moves.

Over the last few years, Chicago Bears General Manager Ryan Pace has developed a reputation for being aggressive whenever it comes to getting the players he wants. Pace has shown that he isn’t afraid to swing for the fences.

In fact, over the last two offseasons (2017 and 2018), Pace made multiple moves that many questioned, however, most turned out okay.

He was criticized when he decided to trade up for Mitchell Trubisky. In that same draft, he selected Tarik Cohen and Eddie Jackson, two of the more riskier picks in the 2017 NFL Draft.

Despite what external sources say, Pace continues to be bold and figure out ways to keep adding talent to the Bears roster. Had Pace not traded up for Mitchell Trubisky, it’s unlikely that the Bears have the offseason they had in 2018.

Had Pace not traded for Khalil Mack, it’s likely that the Bears still make the playoffs, but don’t finish 12-4 and don’t host a playoff game at home.

Sure, with every big move that Pace has made, he’s also had his fair share of misses too. Pace’s 2017 free agency class was nothing but a trainwreck, while his 2016 free agency was successful because the Bears signed Danny Trevathan, Akiem Hicks, and Bobby Massie.

After the way the Bears 2018 season ended, with the right moves, the Bears could become instant Super Bowl contenders. Everyone knows Pace is more motivated than ever to do whatever he needs to in order to get the Bears to the represent the NFC in the Super Bowl next season.
