    All righty, time to recognize the mighty NFC North. Can somebody give me a good reason as to why this season won't be another one where the Bears rule, and the other 3 teams suck?

            I don't see anywhere on the post where I was trying to argue. It was a statement.

                That's ok, look at the rest of his posts, it's just one-liners with no reasoning or support. Declaratory statement after another.


                Good call on Michael Bush in the 1st round by the way. With you're insight I'm really scared about the Bears' playoff chances.

                    Sorry, as long as the Vikings, Lions, and Packers are in the division, the Bears basically have a free pass. We have a new (and definitely unproven)QB, the Packers still have Favre and a weak D, and the Lions are still the Lions.

                      Yea, and i'm sure some of you have made predictions that didn't fall through :D

                      Top 10 Reasons the Bears won't make the playoffs:

                      10) Rex Grossman will not improve as a QB, and will lose his starting job by poor play or due to injury by mid season.
                      9) Lance Briggs is not happy as a Chicago Bear, (Who would be?) and will gripe and will affect the locker room in a negative way.
                      8) Cedric Benson will be a bust.
                      7) Brett Favre will lead the Green Bay Packers to a division championship.
                      6) Tank Johnson is Tank Johnson.
                      5) Rex Grossman is the Bears starting QB
                      4) Rex Grossman is the Bears starting QB
                      3) Rex Grossman is the Bears starting QB
                      2) Rex Grossman is the Bears starting QB
                      1) Rex Grossman is the Bears starting QB

                        Hmmmmm, alrighty....Well I'm going to refute this and I want you to refute my post when I'm done, k?

                        Our division is horrid. The Lions well, yea they just aren't good. They had an ok draft but they failed to address their real need areas. They will have a mighty potent passing game though but they have no running game, their DL is bad (apart from Rogers), their LB core is subpar, and do I even want to comment on their secondary? Detroit will show improvement but I still say they're a mediocre ball club.

                        Green Bay, oh Green Bay. Favre is back for another glory run but he doesn't have any new weapons. Same WR core but he lost his #1 RB in Green. And now they have to hope that Jackson and Morency can pick up the slack, which I'd be scared about if I was a cheeshead. OL, eh it's not bad but it's not that good either. I'll say it's decent. Defensively I like what they have. Kampman is a stud on the DL and they have a very nice LB core. Their secondary still has problems. Solid corners in Woodson and Harris but I don't like their safeties at all. Plus they really don't have any depth at that position.

                        Minnesota, hmmm. QB play is their main concern because frankly I don't like Jackson and I don't think he's the answer there, which if I'm right would set them back 2 or 3 more years, possilby more. I loved their draft this year and they'll have a very good ground game with Taylor and AD. WR's still don't scare me though. Williamson has stone hands, Rice is still very raw, and I don't know how much of an impact Allison will be this year. Taylor, well he's an underachiever. Their OL was arguably their most disappointing units. I mean they had an incredible left side with BM and Hutch. They'd better hope those two perform much better this year. Defensively their run defense is very good. The Williams' are awesome against the run up the middle. They've got talent at DE but it remains to be seen if Udeze and James will get it done. Getting Greenway back for the LB's will help and I think they're solid in that area. Secondary wise, Winfield is a stud. And having Sharper at Safety is a very nice assett to have. If Jackson performs they are very dangerous, but if he doesn't it coule be a long year.

                        Chicago is still the class of this division. The one main concern is Rex. At times he looks incredible, but then a week later he'll look like he's completely lost and he'll play horrid. Our OL is still the class of our division, even at their age. Solid in all areas and one of the best run blocking units in the NFC. We added a young stud in Beekman who will challenge for a starting job this offseason. Not much depth though, and that's my concern. Our WR core is very solid. Moose is a proven vet who still has at least one more good year left in him. Berrian has become a very good player and I'm hoping to see more versatility out him this year, which I imagine we will. Bradley when healthy is bar none our most talented WR. Good hands, a playmaker, runs good routes, and can stretch teams deep. If he's healthy it makes our O more potent. This is Ceds coming out year. He's now the man in Chicago and I like that. He's got loads of potential and he showed a lot of promise last year. A big bruising back who runs downhill, he'll fit right in with our offense. AP is a nice backup but I question him as a #1 RB so we'd better hope Wolfe can step up and be a good 3rd down RB this year. Defensively, um yea we're very good. Talented DL with a bunch of depth (even more when Tank comes back). Added Anthony Adams to our DT's and we return Dusty D. Tommie Harris when healthy is one of the bes DT's in the game, and he's still not yet at his full potential. Our secondary is solid and with the return of Mike Browna and the addition of Archuleta I think it'll be improved. Vash is a very solid CB, as is Peanut. We have nice depth now in the secondary and that'll pay dividends in case of injuries. The main question on our D is Briggs. As many of you know he got franchised this year and he's not to happy about it. I personally think he'll be playing for us next year. $7 million is a lot to pass on. Urlacher well, yea I don't need to say much about him. Hillenmeyer is a very solid player at SLB. He doesn't make mistakes and he's solid in pass coverage. We added some depth at LB just in case Lance doesn't play for us and I am starting to love Okwo. I think he'd be able to step in and fill Lance's place pretty well. Not to Lance's level of play but solid nonetheless.

                        And our ST's is what really makes us what we are. The best return man in the game, one of the best kickers in the game, and a very underrated punter. We get down in coverage and are very sound. Having their third demension just makes us that much more dangerous. Espcially with #23 back there.

                        Here's my predictions on the standings (no records thought yet):

                        1) Chicago
                        2) Green Bay
                        3) Minnesota (I just don't like Jackson)
                        4) Detroit

                          4) Rex Grossman is the Bears starting QB
                          3) Rex Grossman is the Bears starting QB
                          2) Rex Grossman is the Bears starting QB
                          1) Rex Grossman is the Bears starting QB
                          10) Even if Rex doesn't do well, we've got Griese behind him and he's solid

                          9) Lance will be back and he'll play. His teammates on our his side. Same thing happened with TJ last year and everything turned out ok. Lance is still a hard worker and he'll play for us.

                          8) If Cedric is a bust I'll personally come back and ban myself from this board. Cedric showed what he can do, and we're all confident that given the bulk carries, he's going to be special

                          7) He'll need more help than that to win the division (from his friends in Chicago)

                          6) Our DL depth will make up for Tank's absense...And when he comes back it'll help us that much more

                          1-5) Numbers wise Rex had the best season of any QB in the NFC North.

                              SuperBowl. And I don't want to hear that "the team carried him" crap. In the playoffs before the SB game, he was very good and in fact saved the defense against Seattle and was very solid against NO.

                              I'm not making excuses for Rexy but the conditions in the SB were horrid. Notice that when Peyton tried to go down the field, he wasn't very successful. Don't get me wrong he still didn't play that well but it would've been hard for any QB to be successful in that weather, especially playing from behind and having no running game.

                              All Rex needs to do is be solid. We don't need him to be Peyton Manning every game. As long as he limits his Miami's, Arizona's, Green Bay's, and Minnesota's we'll be fine. I have confidence that he can do that for us next year. Our run game, defense, and ST's are good enough to help him out each game.
