To say the 2018 season did not go as expected for the Chicago Bears is a massive understatement. Things ended  on a major sour note after Chicago was swept by the Packers in 3 games to close out the year. The one silver lining, is the team survived the NFC North gauntlet and made the playoffs. For better, or worse, every major starter and specialist returns this coming season, except one. That's some major stability.

On offense, the lone starter not to return was RT Bobby Massie. The door could not hit him on the way out hard enough as Massie was absolutely abused by Clay Matthews and other pass rushers. Chicago signed two veteran offensive tackles to compete for the spot and neither could hold it down. In the third round, Chicago found RT Yodny Cajuste out of West Virginia who immediately locked down the job the first week of training camp. With a skill group boasting Trubisky, Howard, Cohen, Robinson, Gabriel, Miller, and Burton, Chicago fans need this team to gel and quick. Head Coach George Halas trimmed the fat in the playbook looking to focus more rushing options to force the defense to be honest in hopes it opens the passing game.

On defense, every starter returns. But not every returning player is starting. Chicago's prized free agent signing was Trevor Williams opting to take a much cheaper deal than a couple other teams. Williams immediately takes over as the alpha dog, sliding Prince Amukamara to the 4th spot on the depth chart. With an extra second of coverage, maybe Chicago can reach the QB more this year, an underwhelming part of the defense a year ago despite Khalil Mack coming off the edge.

Special Teams was actually pretty solid for Chicago. Tarik Cohen had a Pro Bowl caliber year, yet somehow, Kevin White dressed up as a Kick Returner in the Pro Bowl. (Effing Madden glitch screwed me out of XP). De'Anthony Thomas and Knile Davis add depth should Cohen need a spell to prep for the coming offensive drive.

With 10 user games, it should be a tough season for Chicago, especially being the ever competitive NFC North.
