Their offensive line is mediocre and their only weapon is Matt Forte. They need a new offensive coordinator, help at WR, TE, OL, HB to spell Forte, and a youth infusion on defense. I don't see them improving much on their record next year with Green Bay and Detroit in their division.
They just fired Martz.....and Martz's scheme certainly didn't aid that OL.
So they were playoff bound before injury w/ a bad OL, no WRs, no TEs, and a bad OC. That tell you things ain't that bad in Chicago. If Chicago gets healthy and makes good moves this offseason I wouldn't put Detriot as a better team (on par probably).
