After going 19-45 over the last four seasons, John Fox – former Bears head coach – believes Chicago is closer to being reckoned with and one of his former players agrees with him.

According to NBC Sports, running back Howard was a guest on NFL Network Monday, raising the stakes high for both himself and his teammates as they come off a 5-11 season with new coach, Matt Nagy, taking over for Fox on sideline.

This is not the first time a prediction of this magnitude has been made.

A little over a year ago, Bears offensive player Alshon Jeffery also made a prediction – that the Bears would win a Super Bowl title.

He then left for the Eagles in free agency, taking his guarantee with him to his new team.
