After the final session at the team's voluntary Organized Team Activities, Bears coach Lovie Smith expressed confidence in his 2010 squad.
Asked if the Bears can compete for a playoff spot, Smith said, "Well, as far as compete, that's not our goal.
"We have the same goal we have every year, and that's win the Super Bowl. Win the world championship. It's early on. But I just like the look of this football team. We know what a good football team looks like, and this is a good football team."
Smith overhauled his coaching staff and added several players at key positions this off-season. Smith said Wednesday represented the team's 13th practice together, and he highlighted the strong attendance from veterans at the voluntary workouts.
Veteran linebacker Brian Urlacher and Lance Briggs were among those absent Wednesday, but both were regulars for most of the previous workouts.
The Bears were encouraged to get Pro Bowl center Olin Kreutz back on the field Wednesday. Kreutz took some snaps at center, his first action since he had surgery in January to repair an Achilles tendon.
Smith said the only "downer" was not having new tight end Brandon Manumaleuna, who has been recovering from minor knee surgery.
"If there's a downer, it's that," Smith said. "But the next time we get together for training camp, we should have all of our players ready to go then."
Smith said the offense is progressing but that "we like where we're at, at this stage."
