Once the ‘Monsters of the Midway,’ the Chicago Bears finished the 2015 season in last place in the NFC North with a record of 6-10. The Bears are typically in the running for the division, but saw a step backwards in 2015 following the firing of GM Phil Emery and head coach Marc Tressman. Going into his second year as the Bears’ head coach, John Fox and the team have higher expectations for the 2016 season. Polarizing quarterback Jay Cutler returns for his eighth season under center for Chicago, who could miss the loss of starting running back Matt Forte, who signed this offseason with the New York Jets. The loss of Forte will put a lot of pressure on the untested Jeremy Langford to carry a heavy workload for a typically run-heavy offensive attack. The one player everyone keeps talking about is rising star wide receiver Alshon Jeffery, who finished last season on the IR after suffering a hamstring injury. Jeffery still managed to lead all Bears receivers in receptions; signed Alshon Jeffery mini helmets and footballs are becoming a more popular item in the sports memorabilia world. Kevin White is poised for a breakout 2016 season, the rookie wide receiver missed the entire 2015 season with a shin injury suffered in the preseason, but the expectations remain high for the former first round pick. The Bears are a tough team to gauge heading into this season, with some NFL season predictions ranging from 5-11 to 10-6. Expect improvement from their 6-10 2015 campaign, but the Bears will have a difficult task of passing the Green Bay Packers and Minnesota Vikings. Still, the offense under Fox and Cutler has fans excited to pack the seats of Soldier Field this season and shop online stores for Chicago Bears’ autographed products.
