Chicago Bears Expectations for the Upcoming Season

By Chris Wickersham

Who’s ready for some football? The time is finally here as the Chicago Bears will kick off the 2012 season at Soldier Field vs. the Indianapolis Colts. I can tell you that I’m pumped. If you can not wait until Sunday, there is a football game on tomorrow … the Dallas Cowboys and the New York Giants will kick of the 2012 season. Before the 1st game all together and the Bears 1st game of the season, I decided to have predictions for the 2012 season for your Chicago Bears:

QB Jay Cutler: 3300 yards, 35 touchdowns, 11 interceptions
RB Matt Forte: 967 yards, 12 touchdowns, 2 fumbles
RB Michael Bush: 720 yards, 9 touchdowns, 2 fumbles
WR Brandon Marshall: 1300 yards, 14 touchdowns, 1 fumble
WR Devin Hester: 770 yards,  6 touchdowns, 2 fumbles
WR Earl Bennett: 550 yards, 6 touchdowns, 1 fumble
WR Alshon Jeffery: 500 yards. 6 touchdowns, 0 fumbles
TE Kellen Davis: 340 yards, 4 touchdowns, 1 fumble
Offensive Line: 48 sacks allowed this season
Defensive Line: 32 sacks on the season
8 sacks on the season and touch D once again
Defensive backs: 16 interceptions and 22 fumbles forced on the season
Punting: Inside the 20 26 times and 22 touch-backs
Robbie Gould: 30 out of 33 chances made on field goals attempt and 25 touch-backs
Punt/Kick returning: 6 touchdowns and 30 yards on average per returns

Those are my predictions for the upcoming season of the players who are expected make an impact. I do think this year’s Bears team will be better than the one in 2006 that made the Super Bowl. I think it has to go all way back to the ’85 Bears. Of course, if everyone stays healthy and plays to expectations.

Now let’s get ready for some football!
