Chicago Bears Full Offseason Recap Part 2: Free Agency

Free Agency

I graded the new and improved coaching staff for the Chicago Bears pretty highly in part one of my off-season recap. Do the additions the team made in free agency match up?

Hint: absolutely.

What is the Chicago Bears Biggest Need?

Needs

It seems like such a simple question, but no one can provide a definitive answer.

In free agency, the Bears did quite a bit in terms of addressing some of their most glaring needs. The offensive tackle, tight end, and linebacker positions were all upgraded.

But with the NFL Draft less than a week away, predictions are still all over the board for who the Bears may take with the 20th selection.

In my opinion, this is a two-horse race: offensive lineman, or linebacker. Apparently, most draft experts don’t agree with me.

Chicago Bears Hindsight Draft

Jerry Angelo Hindsight

Imagine, if you will, Troy Polamalu returning a fumble he forced himself for a touchdown; Aaron Rodgers lofting up 50-yard bombs with pinpoint accuracy; and Maurice Jones-Drew dissecting a defense with his explosive speed.

It’s never too soon to think about how the Bears can improve for next season. I have some suggestions for GM Phil Emery.

I think with 2 key moves in the offseason, the Bears can find themselves on the right side of lopsided final scores like we saw in Jacksonville, only against much better opponents than the Jaguars.

Statistically Breaking Down the Chicago Bears Defense

Tim-Jennings

Stop me if you’ve heard this before: the Bear’s defense is the key to their success.

 

I’m not a guy who relates every sports argument back to stats. We all know that guy, though. He can usually be found saying ignorant things such as:

“Well, the stats say X so you guys don’t have a chance tonight.”

It’s so gratifying to me when their statistically based predictions go wrong. That’s why the game isn’t played on paper.

But I’m aware stats do have a place in sports, that’s why we keep them. 3 games worth of information isn’t really enough to make long term projections, but I want to take the stats that we have so far and give some context to this up and down season we’re witnessing.
