Iím on week 14 of the first year of a Bears franchise, and Iíve found all the young dudes on the Bears progress nicely. This is particularly true on defense, where there are a lot of low AWR kids. Play good ďDĒ, and just about the whole defensive team will progress in leaps and bounds.
Iíve been focusing on running the ball on offense. Benson has over 1500 yards for me in week 14. He has progressed well, and the entire O Line has progressed very well. Since Iíve neglected my passing game, I canít say the same for the QBs and receivers, but I can tell you that Bradley makes a very competent #2 receiver and progresses well on very little work. Gage and Wade drop the ball so much, theyíre kind of hopeless to progress. I canít speak to Orton, because he has sat on the bench while Iíve played Grossman. [My Bears Ďchise exists in an alternate universe where Rex stays healthy and Cedrick reports to camp. :rolleyes: ] Grossmanís progression hasnít been what Iíd like, but slow progression for him is probably fair.

I'm entering my 7th week, 2nd year of my Bears Franchise and things are going well. Had 25 straight wins from week 1 year 1 to week 2 year 2, won the division, superbowl and was obviously undefeated. Bears defense has the definate potential to be the Monsters of the Midway under the right guidance, and picking up Ty Law as a shutdown corner doesn't hurt either.
As the previous poster remarked, all of the young guys step up and play exceedingly well. Grossman stayed healthy all year, but just dislocated his knee last game, so Orton finally gets to really showcase himself (screw Hutchinson, I only keep him around for piece of mind). Muhammed and Bradley can carve up the field, and Berrian, Gage, and Wade duke it out constantly for that 3rd wide-out position. Grossman's awareness is enough to make you rip hair out sometimes as it leads to many an interception, so he pretty much stays consistent in his ratings for me.
O-Line is decent, Columbo trails after Tait at LT, and Garza and Metcalf battle for 1st string at guard. Other great position battles include Haynes/Ogunleye and Reese/Odom. All in all, they're a capable team that just needs someone to manage them effectively and they'll soar.
