Feeling good about my favorite team’s chances every single week?

I could get used to this.

The Chicago Bears are 3-1 and they are on top of the NFC North for a second consecutive week. Most of us fans are genuinely excited for the direction of the franchise, and why wouldn’t we be?

I could go on, but you get the gist of what I’m saying. There are a lot of reasons to be confident in this team. General manager Ryan Pace took us on a long rebuilding journey, but he never wavered from his vision, and now in year four, we’re seeing what he was working for.

In the latest FanPulse results, Chicago Bears’ fans once again checked in as the most confident in the NFC North. In Fact, only three other fanbases — the Los Angeles Rams (100%), the Baltimore Ravens (100%), and the Kansas City Chiefs (98%) — have a higher confidence rating than the our 96% in the Bears.

Let’s check in on the other three teams in the NFC North.

Green Bay Packers’ fans are riding high after their shut out against the Bills last week.

The Minnesota Vikings are 1-2-1 after losing again, and their fans aren’t feeling it this week. They travel to play the 2-2 Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday so 1-3-1 is a definite possibility.

Detroit Lions fans are really sad this week after their team lost to the Dallas Cowboys on a last second field goal. The bad record hasn’t stopped them from trash talking on social media however. This is a rambunctious fanbase that still has a nice five-year stretch against the Bears to crow about.

But what happens if the Bears beat them this season?

I’d almost feel sorry for Lions’ fans because without their recent history against Chicago to celebrate, those fans literally have nothing...

What are your thoughts on these results?
