This article discusses the reason for the success of the Chicago Bears football team. Quarterback Rex Grossman has finally emerged as the team's leader, but running back Thomas Jones continues to do the right things to win games. Jones has struggled to be a starter despite leading the team in rushing last year. The team drafted running back Cedric Benson, but he has been injured and has only been able to share some of the running duties with Jones.
