During an on-line chat Gil Brant, believes the Bears will win the NFC North regardless of whether The Undecided One chooses to play for the Vikes or not. Brant also says the Bears will go to the "playoofs", making him the latest addition to the WCG House of Typos.
New NFL.com writer, Jason La Confora, has an article listing how much each team spent in actual dollars versus salary cap money on player costs. The Bears are 21st at 495.57.
La Confora also has a post listing what he calls"bang for the buck" rankings. This how much each team pays per win. The Patriots are on top at a only 8.41 million a win. The Bears are 9 at 11.01 million. It is interesting to see the the top ten teams have the most wins and spend the least while teams like the Raiders, Lions and Browns have the least amount of wins, yet are paying more.
