The Chicago Bears are in the middle of no man’s land after going 12-4 in 2018, making the playoffs, going 8-8 last year and missing out.
The Chicago Bears currently sit in no man land. They can fall off the deep end or return to a contender. A lot is pending on what the team gets offensively to match a Super Bowl-caliber defense. It is not liked the offense need to be top five or even 10 (Although would be nice).
A middle of the pack offense (matched with the talent on defense) would give the team a strong fighting chance to make a deep playoff run. What the Bears cannot do is bottom out offensively if they wish to have success in 2020. The Bears made quite a few additions on the offensive side of the ball.
The acquisition of former super bowl MVP Nick Foles headlines the Bears free agency offensive additions. General Manager Ryan Pace and head coach Matt Nagy knew they had to get more production out of the quarterback position.
Adding Foles who have familiarity with the system should be a benefit to that quarterback room. They bolster the Tight end position with free-agent acquisition Jimmy Graham and second-round draft pick Cole Kmet.
They also attacked the wide receiver position in the draft in free agency with the signing of Ted Ginn and drafting Darnell Mooney in the 5th round. Along with some minor additions on the offensive line and a revamped offensive coaching staff, the hope is that it is enough for them to turn it around on that side of the ball.
With that said, here are the five keys to the Bears having success on the offensive side of the ball in 2020.
