I’ve said it before and I will say it until they prove me wrong: the Chicago Bears are the most balanced team in the NFL. Look, I know it was the Pittsburgh Steelers, but this Bears team proved once again on Sunday night that it really doesn’t have a glaring weakness.
You may hear the name Jay Cutler and think interceptions and sideline tirades, but no my friends — this No. 6 is a brand-new man. Cutler’s still a gunslinger, but the ugly picks are a thing of the past. Key passes to Brandon Marshall and Earl Bennett on Sunday night showed exactly why Cutler is known by his teammates as Mr. Fourth Quarter.
On the defensive side of the ball, Chicago’s ability to turn the ball over and score is unheard of. It’s getting to the point where the Bears are almost expected to score a touchdown on defense as well as offense. Now, for all of you Seattle Seahawks‘ fans claiming the Hawks are the NFL’s most balanced team — Russell Wilson has not proved himself as a guy that can beat you with his arm on a consistent basis, and until that point, the Bears are easily the leagues most well-rounded squad.
