The success of the offence is fragile in my mind. It depends how you look at it...

The optimist can say we have an elite QB and RB and were still competitive last season so logic suggests we should be greatly improved in 2009.

The pessimist would say that Orton was well suited to what our skill players can do and that our current crop of receivers will not make full use of Cutler's arm. We will struggle badly if Forte goes down. Williams is a bad fit at RT. We are looking for Earl Bennett, who it seems thought our playbook was written in aramaic, to step up with no valid reason to think he can. We have not plugged the holes on defence and have signed Bullocks at safety....


The realist would possibly say that if everything goes well we could be a at top 10 team on both sides of the ball. We need Forte healthy and must get Olson and Hester involved in the passing game as much as possible. Harris must be healthy and Urlacher needs a return to form. Whichever way you slice it we should be in a position to compete for the division which is getting tougher every year.

Personally I think it's a shame Hank Baskett signed his tender he would have been the sort of short term boost we need. Regardless there are players available we can use while Iglesias develops. I have always said, and continue to, that Reggie Williams would add a dimension that we do not have. He was a first rounder and was impressive in 2007. with an arm like Cutler's we could use a guy like him to make plays in the redzone.
