The Chicago Bears will be heartened by the return to fitness of Brian Urlacher who missed most of the 2009 season with a dislocated wrist. Urlacher who is a 6 time pro-bowler was a big miss last season and the Bears never really managed to replace him. This lack of leadership at middle linebacker contributed to their poor season and if they are to have any chance in an increasingly strong NFC North his presence is going to be vital.
Unfortunately for Bears fans it will probably take a bit more than his return to give them a shot at the division and their best hope is that Brett Favre doesn’t return for berth behind Green Bay.
