When it comes to the Chicago Bears, excellence is not appreciated - it's expected. The Bears are one of the NFL's premier franchises with a fan base that rivals the best in any sport. Year in and year out, the Bears should be expected to compete not only for a playoff spot, but for a Super Bowl.
That is the kind of franchise this is...that's the kind of city they reside in.
However, some questionable coaching decisions, personnel decisions and horrible drafts have set the Bears franchise back a bit, all while the NFC North division continues to get tougher and tougher.

This story will be a short and simple offseason blueprint, outlining the plan to fill the vacancy at General Manager, how to conduct the all-important first day of the NFL draft and how to handle free agency.
