A year ago, the Chicago Bears were ready to embark on another season under the reign of Matt Nagy.
The Bears offense was obsolete. It was a train on the road to nowhere, and fast. Having a rookie quarterback like first-round pick Justin Fields was supposed to be a luxury — something many coaches dream of.
Instead, Nagy played games throughout the summer and eventually brought Fields into the starting slot. But, Nagy did Fields a disservice in his rookie season, and now the Bears offense is largely a laughing stock based on Nagy’s actions in 2021.
Now under new offensive coordinator Luke Getsy and management of Matt Eberflus, the Bears hope to turn the page on offense. Not only Fields’ development is at stake, but also the future of this entire franchise.
The 2022 season is big for quarterback Justin Fields and the Chicago Bears offense.
Last year, Fields suffered his share of rookie mistakes. But there is hope for improvement in 2022.
New general manager Ryan Poles may not have done enough in the minds of every fan or analyst to back Fields, but this is the quarterback’s time to shine. If Fields is as good as we think, it will be up to him to make his teammates better.
If all goes as planned, and as well as possible in 2022 for Fields, then this Bears offense will be a lot different — and in a good way.
The 2022 season may not end with a winning record for the Bears, but Fields and the offense may surprise some people. Sinning on the side of positivity and hope, let’s boldly predict a few lines of stats for the Bears 2022 offense.
