There is no national buzz about the 2022 Bears. Local interest is lukewarm at best.
They are predicted to be one of the worst teams in football. The team lacks star power. This is a new diet and the list is in transition.
The main attraction – quarterback Justin Fields – comes into camp with his own question marks, some due to his rookie struggles and others due to the lack of talent around him.
Perhaps the most interesting thing about the Bears in the second half of 2022 is a potential new stadium in Arlington Heights.
Last summer, fans used our annual poll to give low marks to President George McCaskey, Head Coach Matt Nagy and General Manager Ryan Pace. They also expressed their enthusiasm for Fields. In 2020, fans were fed up with how mediocre the franchise was.
How are fans feeling as 2022 training camp approaches?
This year, we’re focusing on Fields, general manager Ryan Poles, and where the franchise is headed. We’ll get your thoughts on some of the young players who could be fundamental parts of this team and your thoughts on Arlington Heights.
