How good are the Bears?

I'm curious how good everyone thinks the Bears are this year? I've tempered my enthusiasm from a 9-10 win team to a 7-8 win team. They just haven't looked like a complete team all year except against the Lions.

I think they looked good in the second half of the Vikings game, they played with the confidence a young team often lacks when playing from behind. I think that the offense's success relies on Thomas Jones staying healthy, and the defense on maintaining the positive turn over ratio. The bears are not capable of creating a 80 yard drive down the field on offense with any guarantee, they will need the support of that tough defense to continue to make plays.

7-8 is very possible, and that will also likely win their division.

I wish they were better the only hope is the division sucks. I want Orton to do well. But I think they are a bad team this year.

truth be told, I really think that none of the NFC north is a capable 500 football team, the only spark is that each team gets to play the other ones twice, which for the bears, should mean 4 victories of 6. I can't see them beating the packers twice, and Detroit is better then the played against us last time...
