1. Is Harris still the difference maker he used to be in the middle?
The organization swears up and down that he is perfectly fine and they're just being extra cautious with their $40 million man, but Harris has developed a noticeable chip on his shoulder and wants to prove once again he's the best in the business.
2. Who is going to step up his game and sack the enemy quarterback?
Promising rookies Jarron Gilbert and Henry Melton most likely won't be a big part of the rotation just yet, so look for the invaluable Israel Idonije to push Anderson for the No. 3 role off the bench.
3. Can Briggs-Urlacher-Tinoisamoa be Marshall-Singletary-Wilson?
If Tinoisamoa doesn't mind playing third fiddle behind Briggs and Urlacher but still accumulates close to 100 tackles, this unit could be special.
4. What happens if Tillman or Vasher gets banged up yet again?
Switching Graham back and forth from corner to safety based on need would be unwise, as all it did was make poor Danieal Manning's head spin on game day.
5. Will the loss of Brown come back to bite the Bears at safety?
While Payne should be a better player moving permanently to strong safety, Steltz has Graham nipping at his heels at free safety and may not be able to hold off his more-athletic teammate for long.
