The Chicago Bears offense ranks almost dead last after two games. That will not matter by the end of the season when David Montgomery is selected as the 2019 Offensive Rookie of the Year.
Hard to believe at this point in the season that the Chicago Bears should have the Offensive Rookie of the Year on their team. This especially holds true after how bad this offense has looked the first two weeks of the season. Fortunately for the Bears and Bears fans, this kid is too talented to be held back, even if the offense looks putrid.
The Bears find themselves 1-1 after two games. Two games that were winnable. They lost to the Green Bay Packers once again to start the season and found themselves 0-1 just as they did in 2018. They fought hard and pulled a victory out of their you know where in Denver in Week 2 to pull their record to 1-1. Hopefully, they can relive their 2018 glory and finish with a similar record.
This team is too talented on both sides of the ball to continue to look this bad. Positives were seen in both games, unfortunately for the offense, there were more negatives. One bright spot though was David Montgomery. His numbers do not show it, but his tape does. He has been everything the Bears advertised this offseason. Not something we can say for most everyone else.
Many might say to slow down with this prediction. I say nay to the naysayers and tell them to get on board. Bold predictions make the season more interesting for those who analyze the team and the league. As someone who plays a lot of fantasy football, drafting the guys who others do not see coming helps set teams apart. These predictions do not always turn out to be right, but they are backed by more than a hunch.
Here are my more than a hunch reasons on why David Montgomery will win the 2019 Offensive Rookie of the Year award.
