Football season is almost here. All 32 NFL teams have started training camp. Each team will be tasked with finding their best 53 players over the next few weeks in an effort to finalize their rosters for the regular season. In this series, we will try to predict which players will make each roster. Next up, the Chicago Bears.
The Chicago Bears had one of the best defenses in the NFL after trading for Khalil Mack right before the regular season. The offense was also much improved in the first year of the Matt Nagy era. They were able to finish with a 12-4 record and make the playoffs. Unfortunately, they were knocked out in the wild card round by the Eagles on a missed (blocked?) field goal.
While excellent defensive coordinator Vic Fangio left to become the head coach in Denver, the defense still looks like one of the best. They also figure to be more aggressive under Chuck Pagano. The offense, mainly quarterback Mitchell Trubisky, figures to continue to improve in year 2 of Matt Nagy’s system. The Bears should be considered a serious Super Bowl contender in 2019.
- Mitchell Trubisky
- Chase Daniel
Mitchell Trubisky took a big step forward in his second year last season. The improvement is expected to continue in year three. Chase Daniel has been around the NFL but is widely considered one of the better backup quarterbacks in the league. He has been instrumental in the continued development of Trubisky.
