Every team deals with injuries, we may have had more than the competition this year, but that's no guarantee we'd be a contendor minus them.
This is why there's a BF51 appreciation thread. With a good draft and some free agent help, as well as getting the defense to play like the last two weeks for the whole season (who the hell let Ron Rivera go?), there's no reason the Bears would not be competitive in the conference. I still think the gaping and oozing sore you call your QB position needs to be addressed, but considering they've brought in somewhere aorund 25 guys to try to man the position since Lord Favre has been starting, it's not a given they can solve it. Maybe JP Losman will come in... (hehehe)
