“We are good to go,” Jay Cutler says on the Bears web page. He was talking in reference to the Bear receiving corps of Devin Hester, Earl Bennett, Brandon Rideau and Rashied Davis. The 2009/10 Chicago Bears will open the season with Cutler confident that there was no need to search for a #1 receiver. “I think we’ve got more than enough to compete,” he said. Coach Lovie Smith is relying on his QB and the team is not seeking any other receivers allowing the franchise to focus on their aging defense line.
The Chicago Bears, who failed to make the playoffs, finished out the season with a 9-7 record, 2nd in the AFC North and are poised to recapture with AFC North and to help out they drafted DT Jarron Gilbert out of San Jose State and expect him to make an immediate impact for the team.. Look for the Bears to sell out every home game so be sure to pick up your Chicago Bears tickets early, before they’re all gone.
Changes abound in the Bears camp and it begins at the top. Gone is the entire coaching staff with the exception of Head Coach Lovie Smith. In are Mike Tice, Mike Martz, Mike DeBord, Rod Marinelli, Shane Day, Andrew-Hayes Stoker, Mikal Smith and Eric Washington.
The team picked up some key acquisitions in the off season to include DE Julius Peppers, RB Chester Taylor and TE Brandon Manumaleuna dropping over $100 million in one day. The team will have to concentrate on keeping QB Jay Cutler safe this season, allowing him time to complete passes. To cover his right side, LG Frank Omiyale has been moved to right tackle and the left tackle spot will be battled out by veteran Kevin Shaffer and Josh Beekman and 2009 7th round draft pick Lance Louis.
The Chicago Bears have won 8 NFL Championships (1921-1963), 1 Super Bowl Championship (1985 – Super Bowl XX), 4 Conference Championships, 17 Division Championship and have appeared in the playoffs 24 times.
