For much of the 2022 regular season the Chicago Bears’ offense was reliant upon the big play.
Quarterback Justin Fields proved to be a threat to score no matter where the Bears were on the field. It’s his elusiveness and athleticism that make him such a unique talent.
The Bears finished the regular season tied with the Detroit Lions, each totaling 10 plays of at least 50 yards in 2022.
Many of those came in the form of jaw-dropping scrambles from Fields.
Unlocking the big play without having much consistency in the passing game makes for a much easier fix in the upcoming offseason. The Bears were by far and away the NFL’s best rushing offense, which is half the battle.
If general manager Ryan Poles can upgrade Chicago’s offensive line along with Fields’ supporting cast, the sky is the limit for Fields and this offense in 2023
