Chicago nearly made the playoffs this year with Kyle Orton behind center and you're still not sure that Cutler can suceed in their system? Matt Forte was incredible last year and the defense is always impecable. I think the NFC North this year is going to look like the NFC East last year. The Packers, Vikes, and Bears are all solid contenders this year and could lead to be the most competitive division in the league.
I'm not sure Cutler will succeed because he dosen't have the recievers he did in Denver Brandon Marshall is better than anybody the Bears have and the NFC North isn't close to the NFC East the winner of that division is going to win 9 or 10 games and be the only team that makes the playoffs. you remember the winless Lions are in that division too.
The NFC East and the AFC South are still the 2 most competitive divisions in the league with the NFC South right there if is wasn't for Tampa Bay I think they are in for a rough year.
