Three Burning Questions

Did the front office make a mistake by standing pat and not upgrading this roster in free agency?
The Bears have all 22 starters back from a year ago, and they feel this is a Super Bowl team that didn't need a lot of tweaking. They only added backup defensive backs Ricky Manning and Dante Wesley in free agency, and although there were specific needs at wide receiver and tight end, they did not address either one of those positions in the offseason. However, this is a team that was 5-1 in its division a year ago and its three competitors -- Detroit, Minnesota and Green Bay -- have new head coaches. The Bears are still the favorites to win this division again, and obviously feel that changes were not necessary.
