No Rob Gronkowski helps the Bears.
The Pats have been a consistent Super Bowl threat for nearly 20 years because they got the perfect marriage between head coach and quarterback. The Bill Belichick, Tom Brady partnership has been the best ever, and the Bears hope to have found theirs in Matt Nagy and Mitchell Trubisky.
Time will tell.
