Well, to help us answer that question and many others about this 2018 Chicago Bears team is our good friend Chris Shanafelt of

  1. Bears fans should start to panic if Roquan Smith’s contract isn’t done by what date?
  2. Who should be the bigger priority to extend: Adrian Amos or Eddie Goldman?
  3. How will a more physical training camp benefit a Bears team that’s been devastated by injuries in recent years?
  4. Does the complexity of Matt Nagy’s scheme make you worry that Trubisky might get worse before he gets better this year?
  5. Which one of Trubisky’s new targets will have the biggest impact this season: Allen Robinson, Trey Burton, Taylor Gabriel or Anthony Miller?
  6. Can Tarik Cohen be as productive in Nagy’s offense as Tyreek Hill was in Kansas City?
  7. What are some of the biggest position battles for Bears fans to pay attention to in training camp and who do you think has the upper hand in those specific competitions?
  8. Record wise, what is the floor and ceiling for the Bears in 2018?
