The Bears made a lot of moves this offseason including naming John Fox as the new head coach. Sports Illustrated senior writer Peter King doesn’t have much confidence in Chicago during the 2015 season.
King ranks the Bears 23rd in his offseason power rankings.
They blew it with Ray McDonald, and I just don’t see that defense improving. And relying on a Jay Cutler-led offense to over-produce is not a sound strategy.
The SI senior writer didn’t like the pickup of McDonald, who was arrested for domestic violence and later released by the Bears.
And the Bears didn’t make many changes to their offense besides trading Brandon Marshall to the New York Jets. King thinks the Bears can’t rely on their highest paid player and quarterback to carry the offense, which ranked 21st last season.
King also thinks the defense that was ranked 30th last season hasn’t improved much this offseason.
