The Bears strike me as a team that caught a lot of breaks to help create their W-L record last year.

Calvin Johnson's non-TD catch week 1 spotted them their first win and they continued to get more lucky breaks as the season went on. How many times did Forte catch a 5 yard screen pass and turn it into a 60 yard run? Can't really rely on that. Urlacher actually played all last season. First time he's done that in a while. Tons of questions on a roster with no significant improvements in this off-season. The Lions might be a more dangerous team than the Bears this year if Stafford stays healthy.
