As we speak, Chicago Bears fans are attempting to get every and all information they can about minicamp. That’s what we have to look forward coming home from work, each day.

Right now, it’s minicamp.

Then, it’s training camp.

Before you know it, preseason kicks off and Week 1 is right around the corner. The offseason will be over in a blink, so why not look forward a little bit? Why not get a little bold?

The Chicago Bears are going to surprise people in 2023

There are many reasons to be hopeful for the Bears in 2023, and it’s not just coming from a Bears fan’s perspective. There’s an objective point to be made about just how much better Chicago was able to get over the course of just one single offseason.

Already, we’re hearing things out of minicamp such as this offense looking different and ready to take more chances down field, and why shouldn’t they? Ryan Poles gave the Bears offense more weapons and more protection for quarterback Justin Fields. It’s go time.

The defense also improved greatly, with additions like linebackers T.J. Edwards and Tremaine Edmunds, plus guys like Jaquan Brisker, Kyler Gordon and Dominique Robinson going into their sophomore seasons.

Just how bold could we get, though, predicting the outcome of this season for the Bears and their rivals?

For now, we’ll keep it fairly realistic, but some might still call these predictions quite an eyebrow raise. Let’s get into a prediction for not just the Bears, but each of the NFC North rivals going into the coming season.
