Regardless of how the season plays out, do not expect the Chicago Bears to draft a quarterback in the first round of the 2021 NFL Draft.
The Chicago Bears put forth a lackluster showing on prime-time, Monday night against the Los Angeles Rams. Passionate fans will say the sky is not falling, contrary to some popular belief. Unfortunately, the Bears look so bad on offense that some of the top programs in college football might be sending out better offenses on game-days. But the team, despite their shaky play all season long, is still 5-2, sitting firmly as a playoff contender… for now.
Despite what the Bears’ record reads, watching Nick Foles and Mitch Trubisky throw meaningful passes for the Bears this season is often frustrating, yet blaming the team’s offensive struggles merely on quarterback play is ill-advised. The offensive line can’t hold up for more than a few seconds without Foles sluggishly moving and ducking for cover. Running lanes are hard to come by, often creating long third-down conversions.
