The Chicago Bears hired Ryan Pace three years ago, and in that time the roster has gone over a gigantic overhaul. Earlier this week, Josh looked at the Bears the year before Pace arrived, and compared it to the team that will head into battle in 2017.
Do you think the team is heading in the right direction?
That final season of the Phil Emery era (2014) resulted in a 5-11 record. During Pace’s first season (2015), the Bears improved by only one win, but the team showed more fight than under head coach Marc Trestman. Pace’s head coach, John Fox, got his players to buy in and they played hard. That’s something that couldn’t be said at all times of the Trestman era. They went from a -123 point differential for Trestman’s final year, to -62 under Fox.
The Bears went from six wins in the first year of the Pace era, to only three last season, but the general consensus is that this roster has improved over the one the Bears trotted out last season.
Staying healthy will go along way towards an improved record, but there are never any guarantees in the health department.
Has Pace improved the depth enough so they can withstand injuries this year?
