As the Chicago Bears get ready for training camp next month, a tough season awaits them later on in the fall. The Bears have the third-toughest schedule in 2021 as we now know, but the group they have right now could end up being a special one.

Sure, a tough schedule may seem daunting. But, this year’s team is different. The Bears now have a glimmer of hope; a light at the end of the tunnel that has seen many decades of quarterback purgatory.

The 2021 Bears have an opportunity to do something great, whether or not the national media agrees. This depends on a few things, naturally. One of the biggest things we must see from the Bears is the defensive side of the ball getting more aggressive, sacking the quarterback and taking the ball away.

If the defense reverts to more of their 2018 selves, the Bears may be onto something.

How much of an improvement will we see out of the Chicago Bears offense?

Defense has not been the biggest question for a while now. In Chicago, it’s all about the Bears offense and, more importantly, the quarterback position.

But, now that Justin Fields is here, things might change drastically. The Bears actually have a ton of talent at every level of their offense. The competition and talent at wide receiver is as good as it’s been in a very long time. The back field is finally looking deep. Even tight end looks to be a strength, which is saying something compared to a couple of years ago.

It is difficult to project just how much of a step this offense will take in 2021, but if a couple of things go right, the leap will be a glorious sight to see. Let’s take a look at some early projections for the Bears’ offensive leaders in 2021.
