About Chicago Bears
Da Bears or The Monsters of the Midway, as the Bears are also known as won 9 league championships. 8 as NFL champions (before the AFL-NFL merger) and one in Super Bowl era in 1985 when the team produced one (if not) of the best defences ever created in American football.
The team’s colours are Dark Navy Blue, Orange and White and the team’s mascot is Staley Da Bear.
Bears have signed John Fox last season to be their head coach. John is known for his defensive minded approach but he also was the head coach of Broncos in 2013 when the team set many offensive records.
And John, has a great gunslinger in a person of Jay Cutler, veteran quarterback who the franchise signed to over 120millions dollar contract that expires in 2021.
Cutler gets plenty of help from a two-time Pro Bowl running back, Matt Forte who is also excellent at receiving passes two and who holds the NFL record for the most receptions by a running back.
The talent on the offensive side doesn’t end here, Chicago can also use services of a talented, pass catching tight end Martellus Bennet. Bears also added a very promising wide receiver rookie in the 2015 NFL Draft, Kevin White who was considered one of the best wide receivers in that class.
With coach’s Cox defensive mind there’s plenty of contributors on the team. Especially outside line-backers stand out with Lammar Houston tied to the team for next few years and the latest addition by Bears in the off season in person of Pernell McPhee whose experience as Super Bowl champion (2012 with Ravens), will be a valuable asset for the franchise’s locker room.
With some experience there’s also some raising talent, namely in the person of Kyle Fuller, second year cornerback who, last season, became the first player in last 20 years to record three interceptions and two forced fumbles in his first three NFL games!
More promising youth comes from rookie Eddie Goldman, a nose tackle selected in second-round of the 2015 NFL draft.
Chicago Bears can also rely on services of a veteran kicker Robbie Gould whose kicking skills earned him a trip to a Pro Bowl. Robbie is also Bears’ record holder in points and field goals made. Having an experienced and reliable kicker in Windy City is an asset a team wouldn’t like to play without.
Bears might not the hottest team on the planet but there’s plenty of chances for the franchise to get back to its past glory.
