Here is where the Chicago Bears rank in terms of average, best and worst:

Below you will find a post-Super Bowl 56 roundup for the Bears in our consensus 2022 NFL Power Rankings.

ESPN -- Rank: 26

Offseason in three or fewer words: Find explosive players

Before new coach Matt Eberflus has a chance to shine, the Bears' new GM, Ryan Poles, needs to find him some playmakers. Quarterback Justin Fields and running back David Montgomery are a good start, but Chicago is void of wide receivers and tight ends who are true difference-makers. The Bears have several No. 2s at those positions, but none who can take over a game or beat a double-team consistently. Poles is likely to focus on the offensive line -- he played that position -- but the Bears will be an ordinary offense until they get explosive. That's a word Eberflus used several times when he was introduced as the new coach. -- Jesse Rogers

NFL.com -- Rank: 24

The Bears got their much-needed reboot. Matt Eberflus replaces Matt Nagy at head coach and Ryan Poles steps in for Ryan Pace at GM. The new braintrust will be tasked with doing what the previous regime could not: build up a competent offense around young quarterback Justin Fields. The former first-round pick flashed at times during an uneven rookie campaign, and it is imperative that the Bears put their focus on building around the quarterback ahead of Year 2. That's especially true at wide receiver, a positional group that needs close to a total overhaul. New Matt, New Ryan -- get to work.

CBS Sports -- Rank: 27

They have an entirely new group leading this team in general manager Ryan Poles and coach Matt Eberflus. They have to build around Justin Fields to make it easier on the second-year quarterback.

USA Today -- Rank: 25

Seem like a good idea to pair your expected franchise quarterback, Justin Fields, with a first-time NFL offensive coordinator, Luke Getsy? Guess we'll find out.

The Athletic -- Rank: 26

The rebuild is underway in Chicago with a new coach (Matt Eberflus), general manager (Ryan Poles) and offensive coordinator (Luke Getsy). All three face a major challenge in reshaping the Bears' roster and building around quarterback Justin Fields, a process that has to start with more talent on the offensive line and upgrading the receiver group.
