Chicago Bears will not fly under the radar in 2014

The Bears haven’t made the playoffs since 2010 but don’t think for one second they are flying under the radar as they enter training camp for the 2014 season. The amount of talent and personalities on this team make it nearly impossible for the Bears to be a surprise or underdog this year. Brandon Marshall, Alshon Jeffery, Matt Forte and Martellus Bennett are the best group of...
