The Bears missed out on the playoffs a year ago because they fielded the worst defense in the league.
But they were in the hunt for the postseason because of the other side of the ball. The offense was one of the most balanced and efficient groups in the NFL, regardless of whether Jay Cutler or Josh McCown was behind the center.
With the offense returning just about everybody, there will be a high expectation for this group entering year two of Marc Trestman's tenure.
"If we keep working hard we're going to take this offense, hopefully, to the top of the league," running back Matt Forte told the Chicago Tribune. "There's no ceiling. There's no limit that you can put on it."
The Bears finished the 2013 season ranked eighth in total offense, averaging 381.8 yards per game. They were fifth in passing, averaging 267.6 per outing.
If those statistics stay true, Chicago could field a dangerous group once again this year.
