The Chicago Bears were a very bad football teamin 2022. They had the worst record in the NFL and were awarded the first overall pick as a result.
Of course, they traded the pick and that was the talk of half the offseason. Now, they are coming into 2023 hoping to be a lot better.
That all begins on Sunday against the Green Bay Packers. They haven’t beaten their arch-rival in a long time which is incredibly bad.
If the Bears are going to end their bad streak against them, they really need these three players to dominate on Sunday:
The Chicago Bears are hoping for big things from Justin Fields this year.
Justin Fields was the first-round pick of the Bears for a reason. He dominated and showed off some tremendous talent at Ohio State in his draft year.
In the NFL, it has been an up-and-down start to his career. The Bears and their poor decision-making have obviously done him no favors but there is no doubt that he needs to be better.
Justin was great in 2022 as a running quarterback. He set all sorts of franchise records in that department as he is clearly one of the top mobile quarterbacks in the league now.
However, he still needs to improve his passing game. That may come with more receivers but the excuses are running out on him.
If he isn’t good this season with the weapons that the Bears have surrounded him with, it might be time to start thinking about a different direction. It all starts for Fields in this game against the Green Bay Packers.
