Bears are stacked with Pro Bowlers

I saw this post, Top Ten Bears Who Might Suck in 2010, by Matt Olsen, fellow ChicagoNow blogger and just had to write a response. 
There's a ton of pessimism these days about the Bears. Bears fans are sick of Jerry Angelo and Lovie Smith and they're not happy about the winless preseason. Last time I checked, preseason games don't count, starters play sparingly and coaches don't open up the playbook to scheme against their opponent. 
While Olsen lists 10 players who might suck, the Bears are actually stacked with a ton of talent on both sides of the ball. 

In addition to all the Pro Bowlers on the Bears, the team still has a solid group of solid contributing players who can make impact plays - Chris Harris, Peanut Tillman, Pisa Tinoisamoa, Chester Taylor...

and have a core of younger players that have yet to reach their potential - Devin Aromashodu, Chris Williams, Major Wright, Zackary Bowman.

    The Chicago Bears need all four phases (offense, defense, special teams and the fans) of the game to work together to pave the way to victory. This is the unofficial 4th Phase blog. You can follow the blog on Twitter, @4thPhase or #4thPhase.
