It's nice to be able to look ahead to a normal offseason with labor issues behind the NFL. The Bears have some big money issues to tackle starting with running back Matt Forte and linebacker Lance Briggs. A healthy Gabe Carimi should be in the mix in 2012. With Aaron Rodgers leading the high-flying Packers and the Lions reprising the role of the Bad Boy Pistons, the NFC North will be exciting.
