The Bears were sitting pretty at 7-3 and atop the NFC wild card hunt when Jay Cutler went down with a season-ending injury in Week 11.
They promptly lost five straight games and were eliminated from the postseason chase. Mike Martz is gone, Jerry Angelo is gone, and Matt Forte could be gone, too.
The defense is getting older, the offensive line is bad, and the Lions and Packers are only getting better.
I’ve been wrong plenty of times before, but I think there’s a rocky road ahead in Chicago. —Peter Schrager
