Bears Bring High Expectations to Camp

BOURBONNAIS, Ill. (AP) -- Chicago Bears general manager Phil Emery understands expectations are soaring. He's not backing away from them, either.
The Bears are aiming high, hoping to return to the playoffs after missing out for the sixth time in seven years, going into their third training camp under Emery. Practices start Friday.
Emery said Wednesday the goal remains a championship." He said the Bears are "very accountable as an organization to make the necessary adjustments to stay on path toward our goal."
That will hinge largely on how a rebuilt defense that now includes five-time Pro Bowl defensive end Jared Allen comes together. The Bears couldn't stop anyone last season, and it added up to an 8-8 record and a spot in front of the TV when the postseason started.
