There are lies, damn lies and statistics. In the NFL, stats aren't like other sports. While the addition of advanced metrics in football hasn't quite arrived at the level of sabermetrics in baseball, sites such as Football Outsiders have started changing the way we measure our stars in the game.

And, for the first time, fans and writers will be able to watch the coaches' game film via NFL Game Rewind if you decide to plunk down the $34.99 for the Bears film, $39.99 for all teams, or $69.99 to include the postseason games.

Now we will be able to see with our own eyes how many tackles Brian Urlacher makes as opposed to the often-inflated numbers the team provides.

Of course, metrics like sacks, rushing yards, touchdowns and QB efficiency ratings are known to most every fan. I will try to introduce a couple of the more advanced stats here in this article, but for the most part we will be focusing on the common numbers.

So let's try to extrapolate the numbers to see what 2012 may look like for some of the key Bears in what we all hope is a championship season.
