Regarding the Bears, what has really killed them is one wrist (Jay Cutler) and one thumb (Brian Urlacher.) Their best players have to stay healthy.
yea Washington and Minnessota are both weak.

I just think the other 3 are better overall. however I do think the Pack are the best team in either division. Then the Giants... Then the Lions. But I would put both the Cowboys and Eagles above the Bears.

And isn't Forte coming off an ACL or some type of serious knee injury? just seems like the Bears have a lot of questions. I know they almost made the playoffs last year... But so did the Eagles and Cowboys technically.

Wow, Cowboys and Eagles above the Bears??? I know they have some aging players, had injury issues last year but Bears are getting it together. I have little faith in Romo/Cowboys or Vick/Eagles, nope I can't put them ahead of the Bears!

No one is asking you too...

But it is funny that you are SO adamant about the Bears being the best when they all finished 8-8 last year.

(mod edit-deletion)
do you have your pencil and paper ready?
with all the oline problems and poor receiving core cutler carried the team until he went down...other wise bears are in...
Cutler is far better then vick (delete) and romo (delete)
nfc north has 3 of the best qb's in the nfl...
and also recieving cores...
I put the bears recieving core now in the top 5 in the nfl with the addition of...marshall [hall of famer] and jefferies [a one day pro bowler] and they can put hester on the inside...how do you defend that?
and fortes catching...his knee is good...and they added bush rb from oakland...
so the bears went 8-8 without culer,and forte, poor oline...for many games..while the cowboys and eagles choked as usuall with there starters...
I forgot to mention the bears have the best special teams in the nfl...and the best D in the north...
(edit-talking to people in a condescending manner grinds on me)
GO BEARS...They will light up many teams this year...

I think bugsbunny is a little overboard but I do think there is something to his madness. If a competent QB started the games Hanie started (heck if McCown started those games) I think the Bears would have at least been 9-7.

I like their pickups of Campbell, Bush, and Marshall. I also like their draft. I think Detroit may take a step back this year and Chicago can take #2 in the division which will probably yield a wild card berth and a record of at least 10-6.

So should we carve the hof busts for Alshon already? Your obviously a fan of the bears so you cant be objective. Brandon Marshall is talented, but have they signed Forte back yet? Your defense was good but not great. Forte was 40% of the offense.... Cutler has never been the go to guy. In Chicago you have to run the ball and without forte Cutler and the offense become one dimensional.

Bottom line is they all had the same record... spare me the Bears hoopla. Romo and Vick were both hurt and played poorly as well. In addition so were McCoy and Jones. So its all about the same. the Bears are not better because of their circumstances.

And if Sue is so knowledgable then why are u defending her? She can speak for Herself...

Again 8-8 is not debatable. It's a fact... I don't need circumstances to explain

Hmmm, speed I believe you did write in the bears forum,
Being in South Carolina I got to see Alshon Jeffries play all his college career. When he is focused and in shape he is as good or better than any WR Ive seen in college. Alshons problem is he can be lazy. I hope he pans out because he can be a stud. As good or better than AJ Green.
Do you get to see all the bear games and follow sports radio in chicago?
Iam biased yes, but I will ridicule my team when they suck...
Do you know who BRANDON MARSHALL is?
you know about jefferies...
theres a new offensive c. in mike tice who coachedd moss and carter in minn.
things are changing here in big ways...6.4 foot plus wr.s...
forte is franchised...

It is debatable, romo and vick [suck]...didnt the eagles spend tons of money in free agency last year...what happened...andy reid should be fired....they are 2 over hyped teams eagles and cowboys....
(edit-sentence deleted)
I bet the bears end up with a better record then the eagles and cowboys.(Make that 2 sentences)
