Far-Fetched Friday: Chicago Bears make Playoffs Next Season


The Chicago Bears are fresh offwhat is only their second three-win season in 40 years and haven't had a winning record in five years, yet I am here to tell you they will make the playoffs next year.

Welcome back to Far-Fetched Friday, where we give you a bold prediction that we believe will come to fruition. This Friday, we look at da Bears.

The key to this prediction is the draft position of the Bears. They are the rare team with a number-one pick but do not need a quarterback. It puts them in a position to flip that pick to a more desperate team to acquire an impressive arsenal of talented players through the draft. Then you have the fact that the $98 million they have in cap space is 30 million more than anyone else, and you can see how this team could become competitive quickly and in a hurry.

Think of how the Bengals flipped a four-win season to a super bowl run the following season thanks to their draft capital and the cap space available. The Bears will do their version of this with a playoff appearance next season. They have their quarterback in Justin Fields, and now it's time to get him some help.

A new season is upon us, and with it comes plenty of intriguing storylines. From massive traves and superstar uncertainty in the East to a West perhaps the deepest it has ever been, here is an early season NBA Power ranking.

It is time to throw away the American inferiority complex with its place in the sport, where many blindly claim that technique should come above all in choosing and developing the best prospects and that the U.S. is not an international power because it cares too much about athleticism.
