Really tough break.

The Bears were already seriously terrible.

I hope 4 of them are in the division and none are against the Vikings.

with White out ...if Cutler does not play real good.. The bears could get swept in this division.

The lions have looked better than I thought so far.

No, he really hasnt.

Cutler's best year was in 2008, his last year with Denver, he was 25-18 TD INT ratio with a passer rating of 86.0, he did have 4000+ yards but when you throw 18 picks and have a rating of 86.0 its a tough sell to call it 'real good'.

Sure he has... you didn't ask if he'd had really good seasons. :D That's debatable but there's no doubt he's played really well at times in his career.

I think the Bears ability to compete and succeed this year is probably going to have at least as much to do with their running game as with Cutler anyway. Fox is known as a coach who likes to run the ball and considering the mountain their defense needs to climb to get back to respectability, I think the Bears will probably try to lean on their running game, control the tempo of games and keep their defense off the field. Whether they can do that or not is questionable but I fully expect a big commitment to the run from Chicago this season.

Good point Jim, if i may call you that. :thumbsup: But I would stand by my assessment that Cutler never had an entire season that I would think would be categorized as 'real good'.

I agree especially with their first round pick undergoing surgery. I thin Fox is a damn fine head coach and wil make the Bears a respectable football team if given the time to do so, but man, i just see a rather distinct lack of talent on their roster and I just cant see them being anything less then one of te worst teams in the league this year.

I think people are really sleeping on Eddie Royal. He's played fairly well the past two years, but by far he was at his best during the one year he spent with Cutler.

I think they might be more talented than people think, although they certainly don't look like a team with a playoff-caliber roster. It will be interesting to see how they do. I thought they actually underachieved last season so I expect them to win more games this year, despite the change in systems. They'll obviously need to stay healthy but if they do, I think 6 or 7 wins is pretty reasonable. I could even see them getting to .500 if they catch a few breaks.

Of course, it could all go wrong and they could end up a 3 win team too. I just think they're going to be more competitive than that.

I know they have matt forte, but do they have the offensive line to play that style? Last I remember they don't have a very good line.

It's been getting better. I don't think they'll be able to dominate on the ground like Dallas did last year but I think they'll be able to commit to it and be effective.

I'd like to see us win all our divisional games this season, realistically however I'll be happy if we win out at home, lose at Lambeau & Ford and win at Soldier.

We've lost seven straight in Chicago and are 1-13 there since 2001, we need to turn that around if we're serious about reaching the play-offs this year.

I'm hoping one benefit of playing all these home games outdoors is that the Vikings can improve their record in outdoor road games going forward. Its been terrible for years.
