Sports Mockery

● By Erik Lambert
Ryan Poles sent a message at the trade deadline. He’s going to build this team his way. Almost every trace of the Ryan Pace era is already gone. Shipping Roquan Smith to Baltimore was the last, most glaring indication of the new GM’s seriousness. It also offered a clear idea of what will happen next spring. That makes the latest Chicago Bears 2023 mock offseason far easier to chart. Justin Fields has established himself as somebody worth building around. He’s played his best football over the past month. The trade for Chase Claypool was a significant signal that Poles is ready to invest in him. He has the resources to do so, all while having enough left over to satisfy Matt Eberflus on the defensive side as well. It comes down to how aggressive he is willing to be.
