1. Chicago Bears
It only took 14 weeks for the Chicago Bears offense to come alive in 2020. But with Andy Dalton in 2021, this offense can be ready by Week 1. Look at the Bears options. Nick Foles will be coming off an injury and, at his best, he certainty didn’t blow anyone away with his performance in 2020. He had moments of late-game heroics but behind center the offense was pretty much stagnant.
Weeks 14 through 16, Trubisky has finally showed a resurgence but there are those moments where he makes a throw to remind everyone that he’s still “Mitchell Trubisky.” The team has already declined his fifth year option, so they could easily move on.
Signing Dalton and making the commitment that he’s the Bears starter going into 2021 could provide a spark to the organization. For once, they will show their players they are serious about going on a deep postseason run. With Dalton’s arm, his ability to stretch the field to a target like Allen Robinson will make this offense a little more dangerous. This would also open things up for running back David Montgomery.
If the Bears were to acquire Dalton they would finally have a reliable signal-caller to take pressure off the defense and allow this team to play complementary football. This acquisition alone would not only make this team a threat in the NFC North but possibly Super Bowl contenders.
