The Chicago Bears are going into the 2020 season with mixed expectations.
The Chicago Bears went into the 2019 season with Super Bowl expectations. Most of us believed that they would be right there with the best teams in the NFC competing for the chance to play for the Lombardi Trophy. Well, the season didn’t go as planned and they went 8-8 and missed the playoffs. 8-8 isn’t good but it isn’t the worst but it felt like they went 2-14 based on the hype surrounding them. There is no hyper surrounding them at all this year but fans still have a few reasons to be excited about this team.
1. Football is back
2020 has been a tough year. We have dealt with the COVID-19 pandemic that has affected the lives of so many and there have been so many social justice issues that we are all trying to be better at fixing. Sports are able to help us come together in tough times and not many sports galvanize people like football. The Bears are so loved in Chicago and this is a chance to bring the city together as one of the cities that has suffered the most this year.
