The Bears return all 22 starters a rarity in the salary-cap era and spent the offsea-son continuing to lock up their own. The QB situation is as good as it has been under Jerry Angelo, and if they could get a return on their redshirt rookie class (Cedric Benson, Mark Bradley, Airese Currie, Rod Wilson), they could make a run for the big prize.
Head Coach: Lovie Smith (Regular-season 05 record: 11-5 Playoffs: 0-1) Offensive Coordinator: Ron Turner, Defensive Coordinator. Ron Rivera
2006 Team Draft Notes:
The Bears made little picks because there team is so strong already. I think making 2006 bear season Team to watch. They could go all the way this time to the Super Bowl XLI at Dolphins Stadium.
NFL Free Agency: Picking up a excellent QB Brian Griese from the Tampa Bay Bucaneers who proofs to them he deserves to be a starter for the 2005 bucs. His Farther Bob Griese Led 72 Dolphins to Super Bowl VII win over Washington Red Skins.
And also adding Dante Wesley to thier defensive.
The Bears didn't have a pick until late in the first round, and the team decided to trade down into the second to make their first pick. It's hard to fault the team when it has very few weaknesses and 22 returning starters. With their first pick in the second round (No. 42 overall), the Bears grabbed Abilene Christian SS Danieal Manning. Manning will help add depth to a secondary that lost Jerry Azumah. And in an attempt to get the passing game going with a hopefully healthy Rex Grossman, Miami (Fla.) receiver Devin Hester was chosen later in the round at No. 57.
Chicago held six teams without a , touchdown and eight teams belowj 10 points in 2005.
