No. 3: Winnable Division
For the rest of the division, the Boogeyman left the NFC North this offseason when Aaron Rodgers moved on from the Packers and requested a trade to the Jets. In the wake of this blockbuster move, the division has become quite winnable on paper.
Yes, I know Green Bay didn’t even qualify for the playoffs in 2022, and the Vikings and Lions both deserve respect for the seasons they put together. That being said, it is disingenuous to say any one team is head and shoulders above the rest.
The Bears undoubtedly have the weakest roster from the outside looking in, but football games are not played on paper. Fields is the type of talent that can keep a team in every contest they play. Don’t rule out a jump in the win column, if only because the division is easier to navigate in 2023.
