Jay Cutler will begin his second season as the quarterback for the Chicago Bears. After a disastrous 2009 – 2010 season, Cutler hopes this season will prove he is worth the big money he was given when traded from Denver. Cutler threw for over 3500 yards and 27 touchdowns last season, but was hampered by the career high 26 interceptions.
Matt Forte’s second season as the running back in Chicago was a major disappointment, as he finished with just 4 rushing touchdowns. The Bears ranked 29th in the entire NFL with just 93.3 rushing yards per game. With Matt Forte having a little experience under his belt and the addition of running back Chester Taylor, the Bears are hopeful their running attack will be much improved.
The Chicago Bears will compete in the tough NFC North. The Green Bay Packers featuring Aaron Rodgers are always a pain in the Bears side. And Brett Favre and the Minnesota Vikings should be a tough team to play as well. The Bears will see those two teams twice, along with the Detroit Lions. The rest of the Chicago Bears 2010 – 2011 schedule will include: @ Dallas, @ New York(Giants), @ Carolina, w/ Seattle, w/ Washington, @ Buffalo, @ Miami, w/ Philadelphia, w/ New England, w/ New York(Jets).

Chicago Bears 2010/2011 Predictions
We look for Jay Cutler to have a better season this year. We also think Matt Forte will look more like his rookie season than he did his sophomore season. The Bears defense should be healthy with Brian Urlacher back. They should win a fair amount of ball games but not enough to even make the playoffs this season. The Green Bay Packers and Minnesota Vikings have way too much firepower for the Bears to compete in this division.
There are too many other talented NFC teams, with easier schedules that will reach the postseason in 2010 – 2011. Our money is not being placed on the Chicago Bears to win either the NFC or the Super Bowl in 2010 – 2011. If you are interested in betting the Bears to win the Super Bowl you will be paid $300 for every $10 bet at Sportsbook.com!
