Bobby Massie Declares “The Super Bowl is Coming” to Chicago

Chicago Bears

Bobby Massie has high hopes for the 2019 Chicago Bears: “This team is going to be good,” Massie said in an interview with Jeff Joniak, Tom Thayer, and Jim Miller on Bears All-Access. “The Super Bowl is coming to this team and I just didn’t want to leave Chicago on that note.”

“That note,” of course, is the Bears’ 16-15 playoff loss to the Philadelphia Eagles on Wild-Card Weekend after the team’s 12-win season ended well before anyone wanted. But don’t think his words are coming solely because he’s still basking in the glow of a multi-million extension.

Instead, remember what Massie said back in December when he expressed his desire to remain in Chicago: “We’ve built something. I’ve been lucky enough to be part of a culture change, and it’s like night and day from when I first walked through the door to now. It’s an amazing thing to see, just to see players who’ve grown so much. I’ve had a chance to see Mitch (Trubisky) grow from day one to now. It’s just amazing. I am invested. I’ll just keep playing, doing my job and the rest’ll take care of itself.” Oh, things certainly did take care of themselves in Massie’s case. Ahhhhh, don’t you love it when a plan comes together?

Anyway, Massie isn’t the only one with a positive appraisal of the Bears’ situation.

The staff of SI.com’s The MMQB came together to figure out which teams will win the next five Super Bowls and the Bears are well-represented. Kalyn Kahler and Bette Marston both envision Chicago winning a title in the upcoming five-year window. And over at NFL.com, columnist Adam Schein views the Bears as having the biggest Super Bowl window of all the teams in the NFC. Giggity.

Chicago took care of Massie early in the offseason with a four-year extension that rewards a player coming off his best season, keeps the offensive line in tact, and provides some financial wiggle room for the time being. And when football season gets under way, Massie can start re-paying the Bears by contributing to the ultimate reward – bringing the Lombardi Trophy back to Halas Hall.
