NFL Picks and Football Predictions – Chicago Bears Preview For the 2010 Season
This will be a make or break year for the Chicago Bears and head coach Lovie Smith’s last chance to put a solid product on the field to make the Bears a playoff team. The Bears have spent the big money this off season as they now have marquee players on their team that should make an impact. Last season the Bears acquired quarterback Jake Cutler who is supposed to be one of the elite up and coming quarterbacks in this league although he did not perform as expected and this year they signed Julius Peppers to a whopping 91.5 million dollar contract.
Jake Cutler and the Bears offensive struggled last year with no consistency making too many mistakes as Cutler lead the league with 26 interceptions and 35 sacks. Cutler is a quarterback with big time arm who can make plays witnessed by his 3,666 yards and 27 touchdowns so the addition of the new offensive coordinator Mike Martz should put him in a better position to succeed in 2010. Martz is a known as an offensive genius amongst NFL experts bringing a resume that lead the league in offense for three years while finishing in the top ten in points six times from 1999-2005 with Kurt Warner and Marc Bulger.
Martz is the right coach to orchestrate this Bear offensive as they do not have a true go to player. The receiving core consists of Devin ufabet บอลชุด Hester, Earl Bennet and Johnny Knox while they will have a running back combination in Matt Forte and Chester Taylor who was brought over form the Minnesota Vikings. The Bears success on offense will have to come by a controlled distribution of the ball and Martz will put Cutler in good situation to do so.
The defense which will be solid with the addition of Julius Peppers and big play defenders in Lance Briggs, Hunter Hillenmeyer, Brian Urlacher and tackle Tommie Harris. The Bears laid it on the line this off season spending fifty-five million dollars in guaranteed money while changing both their offensive and defensive coordinators. Our NFL experts for NFL picks predict that if Peppers can bring his 10 ½ sacks or better this year, the Bears investment will pay off and they will get back to the playoffs for the first time since 2006.
