2006 Divisional Predictions Part 4

NFC North

1. Chicago

CHI Chicago made it throught the season and into the playoffs by the sheer will of their defense. The 2005 offense was led by rookie QB, Kyle Orton. A baptism by fire but he survived it. Rex Grossman was out for a prolonged period of time for the second year straight so the Chicago offense is still waiting to get moving in the right direction.

In free agency, Chicago was mostly quiet with the important acquisition of QB, Brian Griese as perhaps a sign of things to come in 2006. The teams major concerns are getting their draft picks to not hold out.

The Bears draft was defensive oriented. They had two 2nd round picks spent on S, Danieal Manning, and CB, Devin Hester. That was followed up by a DT in the 3rd, a LB in the 4th and in the 5th a DE. Then with two 6th round picks a FB and OL were taken.

Chicago is the best of the NFC North and with the defense intact a little improvement on offense will make them more dangerous. Bringing in Griese says that they are tired of Grossman getting injured and were in need of a competent ‘back up’. We believe even though Grossman is the starting QB that an open competition in training camp could leave Griese holdingthe keys to the Bear offense. With a competent QB and the nice running game they have in Benson and Jones, the Bears will win the division. The level of competition is not strong enough in this weak division to catch them at this point.
