The Chicago Bears weren’t very good last season, which was far from a surprise.
However, as bad as their record was, they did show signs of promise toward the end of the season, with Justin Fields looking much more comfortable, poised, and in control of the offense.
That’s why former NFL star Jason McCourty expects nothing but improvement next season.

Per McCourty, another season building trust and confidence with the Offensive Coordinator, not to mention the fact that the Bears added more weapons and strengthened their offensive line, should translate to better things in 2023.
The Bears designed some plays for Fields to do damage with his feet and his lateral quickness, but they now have a legit No. 1 target in the passing game in D.J. Moore.
Moreover, Fields spent most of last season running for his life and trying to avoid being sacked, which should be less of an issue with this new offensive line.
Fields was a stellar high school prospect and one of the most productive quarterbacks during his days in college.
So even if the early returns weren’t as encouraging as some fans hoped, there’s no reason to think he won’t take a massive leap forward in his third year in the league, considering the way the Bears have built the team around him.
The Bears might not even make the playoffs next season, but the hype around Fields is at an all-time high, and it’ll be up to him to prove that he’s up for the task.NEXT: Justin Fields Dubbed The 'Next Supertar Quarterback' By Analyst
