Yahoo! Sports has graded out all the teams based on their season. The Bears came out with an A-.
CHICAGO BEARS (13-3): This team sure has drawn plenty of doubters despite racking up 13 wins and going 3-1 against playoff teams. The defense isn't quite as good without tackle Tommie Harris and quarterback Rex Grossman has proven inconsistent, but this team is still as good as any in the NFC and most in the AFC. Considering the ups and downs on both sides of the ball, Lovie Smith has done a masterful coaching job.
We share the A- with the Patriots and are both below the Chargers and Baltimore. Obviously, the issues with QB are what kept us from hitting the top mark.
