4th Phase (12-4)

I don’t really concern myself with what other teams do but all I know is that the Bears will finish 12-4. The Bears have upgraded their offensive line and Jay Cutler has more weapons to throw to. While some of the leaders players on defense are a little older, Chris Conte and Major Wright are emerging, Corey Wootton (if healthy) will have impact, Shea McClellin will progress this season, and Jonanthan Bostic’s youth is better than Brian Urlacher’s old self. Here’s how the Bears are going to win the Super Bowl.

Joshua (12-4)

The reason I picked the Bears to go so far this year is because of the change that I have seen from year to year throughout the league. We have upgraded on almost every position on offense, and still have the same core players on a defense that has had them labeled the most dominant in the league for the past several years.

The only two things that I can see holding back this team are numerous injuries to key positions or Trestman’s lack of coaching experience at the NFL level.  Although, I can give a sliver of confidence to this statement, I am more inclined to believe that Trestman is an experienced football coach and that he knows what needs to be done when situations arise on and off the field.

Elijah (11-5)

I see this year as being a major improvement for the Bears, especially offensively. I think that two early home games will prove to be helpful. I don’t see the Bears losing to a Christian Ponder led Vikings team at all. I fear that the Packers still have the Bears number, despite all the changes. That may just be my pessimistic side speaking. I don’t think the NFC East is going to be a major problem for the stingy Bears defense. Overall, I see this year as being a playoff year and a step in the right direction.
