During the 2022 offseason, there was a theory that new Chicago Bears GM Ryan Poles wanted his own quarterback, not the guy he inherited from Ryan Pace’s regime.
That theory’s advocates used Poles’ lack of off-season activity last year to support their claim. He didn’t add any impact players on offense, either through free agency or the draft, and appeared content with backups playing as starters. Was he purposely setting up Justin Fields to fail so he could select his own guy?
What a difference a year makes.
