Chicago Bears Envision Better Balance, More Production on Offense

Chicago Bears: Offensive juggernaut?

That may be a stretch, but it didn't stop linebacker Brian Urlacher from gushing at the team's training camp in Bourbonnais.

Bears fans are used to seeing their team win on the strength of its defense. But the defending NFC champions believe an offense that ranked 15th last year will be better and more balanced. With more speed and depth among the receivers, they envision a more open offense.

The Bears' confidence is based on the belief that a veteran offensive line will continue to perform at a high level. That Cedric Benson is ready to carry the load at running back. That Rex Grossman will be more consistent and that he'll have no trouble finding a target.
