Jimbo Covert, a starting offensive lineman on the 1985 Chicago Bears, spoke with Sun-Times Sports about how he thinks the 2015 Bears team will play this upcoming season.

Despite the Bears featuring a new staff including head coach John Fox, offensive coordinator Adam Gase and defensive coordinator Vic Fangio, Covert sees an opportunity for the 2015 Bears to go 9-7 and sneak into the playoffs.

Covert’s prediction is in stark contrast to teammate Dennis McKinnon’s — as the former wide receiver predicted the 2015 Bears to go no better than 6-10.
