2011 Preview:
Offense:
Chicago seemed to be more of a smoke and mirrors team last year, but they did make it to within a win of the Super Bowl. Offensive coordinator Mike Martz, long a pass-happy mad bomber, has turned to the ground game, mostly because the erratic Jay Cutler isn’t a good fit for his system, which requires the kind of anticipatory throws that Cutler doesn’t do well. Offensive line coach Mike Tice worked wonders with this offensive line last season, and the addition of first-round pick Gabe Carimi, the best run-blocking tackle in the draft, indicates that they plan on relying on the ground game again. The signing of bruising RB Marion Barber also signals a dependency on the run. NFL scores.

Defense:
The arrival of DE Julius Peppers made a huge difference on the defensive side of the ball, and Chicago’s bend-don’t-break philosophy led to a number of tight wins. Devin Hester’s prowess in the return game also tips the scales in their favor. Opposing teams had a net punting average of 32.6 against Chicago, lowest in the NFL. NFL spreads.

StatFox Take: With non-division games against the strong NFC South and improving AFC West, there aren’t a whole lot of easy wins for Chicago here. The season begins against three reigning playoff teams with the Falcons, Saints and Packers trying to put the Bears in an 0-3 hole to dig out of all season. A scheduling quirk has Chicago playing just one division game in an eight-game stretch, which includes four straight versus the AFC West. A strong ground game will be key down the stretch as four of the final five games will be played in frigid temperatures. NFL lines.
Prediction: UNDER 8 (Even)
