BEARS IN FAVOR OF WINNING THE NORTH!
The NFC North has always been a division with a lot of talent and very competitive. If the Detroit Lions would change their losing ways and change their fortune around then we might just have the toughest division in the league. On the other hand we have the Chicago Bears, a team who plays with all their strengths to go all out and leave it all on the grid iron. For many seasons they have been heart-broken with the Green Bay Packers dominating the division and always leaving them one game out the playoffs. It must be downright discouraging having a great season and still missing playoffs. But that’s the nature of this division if you ain’t finishing the season with no more than 4 losses then its going to be near impossible making the post season. The Bears are currently second in the NFC North with an 8-3 record trailing the usual Green Bay Packers. They are neck and neck, with plenty of games left to try to takeover the throne. The Bears are a well-rounded team but many can argue that it has been the defense that has carried this team to this years success. The acquisition of CB Tremon Smith has payed great dividends as he has tallied an impressive 9 interceptions for the team. The inside linebacker Parker Hines has also played a vital role in the secondary as he continues to have a solid year with 9 sacks, with 6 interceptions and two defensive touchdowns. As a result the Bears rank top five in yards allowed, points allowed and turnovers forced. Although this team relies mostly on their defense I can confidently say that the offense has added positive players to add more explosiveness to that side of the ball. A pivotal role has been RB Tamarcus Winn who in his first year in Chicago is having a very good season. He just took over the first string role and is already contributing with 412 rushing yards and 9 touchdowns. Another great addition to the offensive side is QB Josh Moore who came in and relieved Trubisky of the starting role and is now the leader of that offense. With only 27 years of age he still has a lot of potential to succeed in his career. This year he has helped the team by throwing for 1626 passing yards and 9 touchdowns. As a Chicago sports writer I’m very eager to see how this season plays out for them, and I hope they can finally get the monkey off their back. The whole state of Illinois is tired of seen the Packers in the top every year and are anxious to dethroned them for once and for all!
