What Vegas thinks about the Chicago Bears with post draft odds

“How confident should we be about Justin Fields and the opportunity he is getting in Chicago? The Bears saddled the quarterback with a lame-duck head coach as a rookie, then took away his No. 1 wide receiver by allowing Allen Robinson to leave for the Rams this offseason.

Absent a first-round pick (that went to the Giants in the Fields draft trade last year), Chicago opted to wait until the third round in Vegas to address the offense. Perhaps Tennessee wideout Velus Jones Jr. carves out a role as a rookie, but it’s more likely Fields will be staring down a lot of blanketed receivers when he drops back to pass this fall. Give the kid a chance!”

Winning seven or eight games this season will not make Bears fans happy. Seven or eight games is probably the worst position an NFL team can be in, because they can’t make the playoffs. And they’re not bad enough to get a top draft pick to help the team get better for the next season.

The Bears would like to see Justin FIelds make more strides this season in becoming a franchise quarterback while new head Coach Matt Eburflus takes new faces on defense and remakes the group into a top 5 defense. With a good formula by the new coaching staff and a few good roster moves by Ryan Poles in free agency, the Bears can hopefully compete for the playoffs.
