Bears fans are understandably frustrated after Chicago lost another heartbreaker, this time to the Atlanta Falcons by the score of 27-24.

With Sunday’s loss, the Bears have now dropped six games decided by one score or less. Playing in highly competitive games is great for the growth of such a young team, but the results still sting just the same.

While the Bears will need multiple miracles in order to play in the postseason, fans can begin to look forward to next year’s squad.

Sitting at 3-8, Chicago is in line for a top draft pick in the 2023 NFL Draft. If the season ended today, the Bears would have the third overall pick in the draft.

One way to infuse the roster with talent is by spending boatloads of money on free agents in the off-season, which general manager Ryan Pace is expected to do at season’s end. The other way is to build through the draft.

With the Houston Texans and Carolina Panthers in front of them, the Bears could have their pick of the litter when it comes to non-quarterbacks in the annual event. Should the Bears opt to select the top defensive player, or add a key cog to the offense will be determined in the coming months.

So, as Bears fans embark on their weekly rituals in handling gut-wrenching defeats remember that there is light at the end of this dark and lonely tunnel.
