So another article making the rounds on the board right now is talking about an 11-6 prediction. Weird.
Not going to happen.The ESPN Football Power Index projections are live. Here's how our model believes the 2022 season will play out, from Super Bowl champ predictions to close division races.www.espn.com
Chicago on the clockWe've got a brutally close race for the favorite to be the No. 1 pick in the 2023 draft, but the Bears edged out the Jets for the honor.
ESPN's FPI is down on Justin Fields after a pretty brutal rookie season in which he finished with the worst QBR among qualifying quarterbacks in the league. Edge rusher Khalil Mack and receiver Allen Robinson II are both gone, and while there are still a few good players remaining in the defensive front -- including edge rusher Robert Quinn and linebacker Roquan Smith -- there isn't a whole lot other strengths on the Bears' roster.
Per FPI ratings, the Bears have a 14% chance to pick first next April, followed by the Jets (14%), Texans (11%), Jaguars (9%) and Falcons (9%).
So you’re saying Nagy was a good coach? Or saying the new staff is much worse…before they even have a training camp?Honestly, if the Bears were playing the same level of teams they were playing in 2021... I'd agree with the Bears getting the number 1 pick. But it's more a question of what is unknown more than anything else.
Falcons and Seahawks are the 2 worst rosters in the league in my opinion. @TheWinman #seriousfootballtalkThe Bears will not finish with the worst record in the NFL. Yes they aren't good but they're not a complete train wreck. they have talent on defense, that alone should keep them in games. I would be shocked if they're top 5. 6-8 wins is my guess so anywhere between 12-20, as per the usual bears.
