Who will challenge the Green Bay Packers for dominance in the NFC North? Longtime NFC North guy and former Minnesota Viking and Packer Darren Sharper thinks it’s going to be your Chicago Bears. Watch his NFL Network segment here.
Sharper attributes his support of the Bears to the addition of Marc Trestman at the helm of the Bears as the reason for Bears ascent, despite the Vikings earning a split with the Packers and putting up far better numbers against them. According to a number of Bears he’s talked to, Sharper hears that Trestman is an offensive genius and will turn Cutler around.
Add to that the weapons that Phil Emery has put around Cutler and you’ve got a much improved Bears attack. He points out the Packers’ weakness against the run and that the Bears should be able to exploit them in that area. Don’t forget that Devin Hester as a dedicated returner and the Bears always stellar defense and you’ve got the formula to beat Green Bay.
What do you think? Will the Bears be able to leapfrog both the Packer and the Vikings to claim the NFC North crown? Will the Bears be able to hold off the Lions? What is your prediction for the 2013 NFC North standings? Let’s see your Comments!
