Chicago Bears (4-3)
What they’ve done well: Jay Cutler has brought the Bears' passing game into the 21st century. He's been troubled by frequent interceptions –- 11 of them -– but he can get away from on rushing defensive linemen and find a way to make something happen on his own. The Bears throw for 226.9 yards per game, which ranks 14th in the league. While that’s not much to brag about, being a middle of the road passing team is an improvement for this team.
Needs improvement: The offensive line has fallen apart. Veteran center Olin Kreutz is still the best blocker, but he’s not the player he once was. Ex-All-Pro Orlando Pace is just going through the motions. On the defensive side, the loss of Brian Urlacher in Week 1 has taken away much of this unit’s ability to intimidate the opponents. Outside linebacker Lance Briggs may be an elite defensive player, but his teammates struggle in support. The Bears can’t put pressure on opposing quarterbacks, ranking 20th with 15 sacks.
