Tonight the NFL season kicks off, which means it’s time for me to be blindly optimistic about the Bears every week. So I’m going to predict the team awards (Offensive MVP, Defensive MVP, Rookie of the Year, Most Improved Player, & Team MVP), and give my regular season prediction for this year.
Bears 2018 schedule:
Along with the NFC South, a strong argument can be made that the NFC North is the best division in football. The Vikings are basically returning the same roster with an upgrade at QB, the Packers have #12 🤷🏾♂️, and Detroit has a system perfectly tailored for Matt Stafford with playmakers everywhere. So expecting the Bears to have a huge jump in wins from last year is a bit reckless, but I’m here for it 😈.
When I look at the Bears roster, especially with the addition of Khalil Mack, I see real talent in every position group. Most importantly, Mitch actually has offensive weapons this year outside of Cohen and Howard. Trey Burton, Allen Robinson, Anthony Miller, & Taylor Gabriel have the ability to make big-time plays and keep defenses honest (the Bears were so predictable last year 🤦🏾♂️).
Mitch is going to have to ball out for this to happen, but we traded up (and passed on Watson) for a reason right!?
Chicago Bears 2018 Record: 11-5 NFC North Champions.
