The Chicago Bears surprised many people with the success they had in the 2010 season. With a top-five defense and an offense that was feast or famine, the Bears made it all the way to the NFC Championship game for the first time since their Super Bowl run in 2006.
Many things went the Bears way last season, starting with their fellow NFC North division members. The Packers suffered a lot of injuries, including a stretch with Aaron Rogers out of the lineup. The Minnesota Vikings had a letdown year, and the Bears got a little help from the NFL rulebook in Week 1 against the Detroit Lions.
The NFC North will be among the most competitive divisions next season. The Bears cannot afford to stand pat. In the draft, the Bears weren't flashy, but did address some needs.
By drafting OT Gabe Carimi from Wisconsin, they gave some much needed help to the offensive line. With the selection of DT Stephen Paea (he of the mighty 49 bench presses fame), the Bears got a capable replacement for departed DT Tommie Harris.
The next stage in this offseason is free agency. No one knows for sure when it will begin, but when it does the Bears need to be active. The Bears could use help at receiver, defensive line, offensive line, linebacker and in the secondary.
The following are the six offseason moves the Bears should do to win the Super Bowl next season. Feel free to comment if you agree or don't agree. All Bears fans want to watch the Bears finish what they started last season!
