Here’s a quick recap of who the Bears added or retained.

And here’s a list of who they lost in free agency.

Before moving on to the confidence results, let’s check in on fans of the other NFC North teams to see how their FanPulse results were in the “better or worse free agency” poll.

Green Bay Packers: 95% better

Minnesota Vikings: 58% worse

Detroit Lions: 100% better

When it comes to the confidence level of Bears’ fans, we’re definitely ready for 2019 to get started. We’re tied with fans of the Los Angeles Rams (Turf Show Times) for a FanPulse leading, 98% approval rating.

For a little perspective, we ended last year at a 97% approval rating, so we’re still riding the high of Chicago’s first playoff appearance since 2010.

Anything stand out to you about these results this week?
