Chicago Bears Training Camp: Can The Offensive Line Protect Jay Cutler?

With training camps hitting full gear around the country, SB Nation's Ryan Van Bibber took a look at the biggest question surrounding each NFL team as the season draws near. For the Chicago Bears, the big question is a pretty obvious one:

Chicago has dark horse written all over it this year, but do they have the linemen they need to keep Jay Cutler on his feet this year? The Bears are content to go with J'Marcus Webb on the left side, after he allowed 12 sacks in 2011. A healthy Gabe Carimi is being counted on to shore up the right side.

For the past couple years, the offensive line has been one of many issues on offense for Chicago. Now, with quality back-ups at key positions and some new weapons, the line is really the only obvious question mark.

The Bears have never really been known as an air-it-out kind of team, but they've never really had a quarterback that's as dynamic as Cutler. Considering that, getting good work out of the offensive line this year will be integral to Chicago's success.
