The Chicago Bears came into the 2023 season with high hopes. They got a massive haul for the number one overall pick. They spent money in free agency to improve the defense and offensive line. Justin Fields had another year under his belt and was looking to make another jump. Week 1 was a disaster. The Green Bay Packers came in and beat them in every facet of the game. Ownership is apparently “angry” over the embarrassing loss.
Chicago Bears Ownership Is Not Happy
DaBearsBlog recently shared reporting that the Bears need a win badly in Tampa Bay. It wasn’t just the losing part. It was the absolute embarrassment. Jordan Love was in his second career start and the Packers have an incredibly young team. The Bears should’ve at least been competitive. Now, they leave week 1 with more questions than answers. The coaching was not inspiring at all with questionable offensive playcalling. If 2023 is a lot like 2022, we may see some huge changes in the organization.
Let me provide a positive outlook on the Chicago Bears organization. The Bears own the Panthers first round pick thanks to the offseason trade. The Panthers look like they are in for a rough year. It isn’t out of the question that they could have a top five pick from Carolina. Depending on how this season goes, the Bears could have two very high first round picks. At that point, they can have their pick of the deep quarterback class in the 2024 NFL Draft. They could also go the other route and grab two top tier talents to fill out the roster. The flexibility is there which is a silver lining.
It seems that ownership is done being patient. The Chicago Bears ownership wants wins now. Week 2 against Tampa Bay is not an easy matchup by any means. While the Bears definitely have a chance, they will have to play much better than they did on Sunday.
