Sustaining Success: What Do The Bears Still Need Work On?

The Bears are playing meaningful football in December. That alone is worth celebrating. However, it’s also worth asking what the Bears still need to do in order to sustain their success.

For a change, the Bears are playing meaningful football in December. However, fans continue to speculate as to how Chicago can keep things moving in the right direction. At the moment, the team doesn’t seem to have a lot of weaknesses. That’s good, because with limited ammunition in the draft, Ryan Pace will have to be careful how he spends his picks. He will also need to keep an eye on the contracts he hands out, because a number of important players need to be re-signed in the near future.

The contributors for Windy City Gridiron have taken advantage of the mini-bye to talk about what we think the Bears need to do when the dust settles. Some of us highlighted individual positions (like running back or right tackle), while others more talked about the philosophy of setting the team up beyond 2019. However, before we share our thoughts, we wanted to ask the fans to weigh in.

It seems like Ryan Pace and Matt Nagy have a pretty good thing going, but what could they still improve? What priorities do you think general manager Ryan Pace should have in order to sustain the Bears’ current level of success?


What priorities should the Bears address in the 2019 off-season, including the draft?

    None—they’re good. They should trade the picks for beer and pizza.
