Jay Cutler and the 2009 Chicago Bears were one of the NFL's most disappointing teams last season. With Cutler often appearing to be throwing to the wrong team, and Lovie Smith's defense no longer the dominant force from a few years ago, the preseason predictions didn't look well for fans in the windy city.
In the 2010 offseason, the Bears went out and hired offensive guru Mike Martz to help improve the offense, and hoped that the return of a healthy Brian Urlacher would rejuvenate the defense. Unfortunately, after finishing the preseason at 0-4, the 2010 Bears didn't look much different than the Bears of 2009.
However, once the season began, Chicago flipped a switch and began to look like a different team. They reeled off three consecutive wins to start the season, and until the week four game against the New York Giants where Cutler suffered a concussion, they looked like the team to beat in the NFC North.
If the Chicago Bears can figure out a way to solve their offensive line woes, they can still accomplish great things in 2010.
