This takes a look at what the Bears have done in the off season to turn around their dismal performance on third down conversions. Pat Kirwan credits Coach Lovie Smith and General Manager Jerry Angelo for making moves that should instantly increase that number. Those moves are Devin Hester going to offense and the drafting of Greg Olsen and Garrett Wolfe.
If one were to factor out Grossman from the equation, the Bears offense is starting to look pretty scary. Opposing teams would have to decide which side of the ball they want to take their chances with. Now bring Grossman back in and you get the uncertainty. All the weapons in the world don't mean jack if you can't get the ball to them. I have to believe not only from history, but also for my sanity that Grossman will improve over last year. It will be really only his second year, he has another training camp under his belt and if all reports are right our new QB coach already has him doing things that he couldn't figure out last year.
When you think that with Berrian, Hester, Olsen, Davis, Clark and Wolfe that Moose could be the dump off man and get the easy defense, because everybody is worrying about something else, you have to like the Bears chances to have a drastically improved offense.
