The Bears had a busy offseason adding a playmaker at wide receiver in Brandon Marshall, and depth at runningback and quarterback with free agent signings Michael Bush and Jason Campbell. Rookie wide receiver Alshon Jeffery also looked promising in presseason. But will it be enough? Or will their failure to upgrade the offensive line doom the team to another lackluster season?
