Ranking the Bears roster: 5-1

CHICAGO, IL - SEPTEMBER 19: Josh Sitton /
1 of 5

We break down the five most valuable players on the Bears roster. Who do the Bears need the most?

5. Josh Sitton

Sitton was one of the best guards in the NFL last season. When he was on the field he was as consistent as expected, and arguably was playing at a higher level than Kyle Long.
Of course, Long did miss half of a season due to injury. Sitton missed four games as well and is three years older than Sitton. At age 31, and at a position as grueling as guard, the wheels could be coming off at any moment.

Still, if Sitton is healthy, the interior offensive line of the Bears is the best unit on the team. He puts a lot into that, and without having the bigs in the middle clearing the path for the running game the offense is going to stall. The Bears will be relying on and expecting a big season from Josh Sitton.
