Nice read.The Forte thing was interesting.IF he doesnt get a LT deal,he prob.will run wild to prove hes one of the best RB in the NFL and then he hits the open market and is gone ( prob.) Chi still has to pay Urlacher as well and that will be a tough thing to do.( hes coming up as well i believe)
I dont thing anyone expects a 15 win season again,thats unrealistic but a 12-4,11-5 maybe a 13-3 is certaily doable and with a few breaks MAYBE 14-2 ( although that seems a stretch) BUT GB would have to be considered the favorites until beaten or another team has a remarkable off season.GB 12-4,Ch 11-5,Det 10-6,Minn 7-9,6-10 maybe 8-8 sounds pretty fair ( barring a Major few injuries) BUT THEN AGAIN,GB lost how many starters,important backups,16 players on IR including their best RB,TE.both Tackles and won the SB in 2010,so depth proves very important.

It was just a few years ago when the NFC Western Division finished the season with every team having a losing record. That was an NFL first! So anything is possible. Perhaps you will be right eric and the NFC North will be the first division to have NO team have a losing record. Go Vikings! 8 wins! That's living the dream!

Forte said he is pretty sure they will have a deal by monday. If for some crazy reason they don't get a deal any time this season. The bears would franchise him next year too. But looks like the long term deal is almost done.Bears want that and so does forte. Urlacher said he will never play for another team and he would not break the bank to sign again. Class act that will retire a Bear.

If he doenst get his LT deal,im thinking he will have a career year to prove his worth,but,im not sure he would comeback to Chicago,they can franchise him all they want,he can hold out and force a trade.IT all depends on his personality.If he feels hes worth 9M and franchise is 7M+ then hes making 1-2M less they what he feels hes worth,if hes pissed off about that,that can go along way toward he leaving or holding out ect.
Urlacher,who knows,he has a chance to hit FA so who knows but id count on his being there as well.

pakfan1...Go to ESPN,they have a small article about a few teams.facing some big FA in the next few years and the Bears are looking at some big names after this season ( Urlacher) and next year,17 or the Bears projected 22 starters are due within the next 2 seasons and its time to win it now or next year because they may break up the team a bit..Short article but interesting.

forte can't sign with another team next year if they franchise him, hes a bear for at least to years.but chicago wants him and he wants to stay here .Again,urlacher says he will retire a bear.

But Forte can holdout and force a trade either this year,or if the Bears franchise him again next year.He may not care if hes Franchised this year and play for 7.9M per when he feels hes worth 9M.BUT, how would he feel about being franchised 2 years in a row? Depends how much he cares about being paid less then what hes worth AND it depends on the cap space.17 starters will be FA IN THE NEXT 2 offseasons,so thats a lot of money flying around,Cutler is due and if they love Cutler,theres a boat load of cash ect.It will be interesting.Urlacher may have to take under value to stick around or it may be a rebuild time in Chicago or at least change the face of the team significantly and not ness. a complete rebuild..Interesting to see what the Bears do.

There is nothing better than when Bear fans believe that their only chance is to hope for injuries to some Packer players. Thank you.

Load of crap, just signed our offense, Forte, Marshall,Jefferys, Bennett,etc. I told you forte would sign a long term deal. Cutler and urlacher are not going any place for a long time. The team has a great GM and has kicked ass on this team! Things are looking great for the next few years. You read to much crap and really don't get it. Forte deal was always going to happen and this team isn't getting broken up.You may not know it but we have an ass kicking Offense right now.
