The Chicago Bears have a huge off-season ahead of them. You can make a claim that they have the biggest one coming in the history of the franchise.

There is a lot of work to be done by Ryan Poles and this new front office as they try to finally get this team going in the direction of sustained success.

A lot of different points on the calendar have events that should help this team should be able to use to their advantage.

We recognize that this is a very important time for the Bears. There really isn’t much room for error because this team needs a winner baby. These are the off-season catastrophes that the Chicago Bears must avoid:

1. A mistake with Justin Fields

The Chicago Bears need to be really smart with Justin Fields right now.

Of course, there are people that believe that the Chicago Bears should move on from Justin Fields. That really doesn’t make sense though because he just had a remarkable season on a very bad team. He showed that he can be an impact player at any given moment.

He didn’t develop enough in terms of his throwing yet but he took strides. With that said, he was as good as any running quarterback in the history of the league with his legs. If he can pair that with some better throws going forward, he will be an elite player in a premier position.

The Bears didn’t do anything to help him through this year. They were bad by design and that forced him to rely on his legs even more. If he can get a good offensive line and more weapons, he may thrive. That is why they can’t trade him because his potential is through the roof.
