Do the Bears have a Super future? - Barry Rozner: The Bears have work to do, but for the first time in a long time, that light at the end of the tunnel isn’t an oncoming train.

What can Bears learn from Seahawks' big win? - Bob LeGere: The Broncos and the Seahawks both proved that being one-dimensional isn't enough to get a team to the big game — even when that one dimension is superior.

Ray Guy HOF selection could help door open for Hester - Moon Mullin: Ray Guy has possibly lowered ever so slightly an unspoken barrier for specialists that only one kicker (Jan Stenerud) had cleared.

Bears mailbag - Michael C. Wright's Q&A session on restructuring Julius Peppers' deal, the Bears' draft strategy, luring Michael Bennett to Chicago, and more.

Ah, for a coach with energy of a Pete Carroll - Mike Imrem: These are supposed to be the Monsters of the Midway, not the Brainiacs of Beardom. The Bears should be a group of tough-talking, roughshod running, maverick-acting funboys on the field, not prim, proper, polite choirboys.

Know thy enemy: Packers - Rob Demovsky: If there's one ever-lasting image from the Packers' 2013 season, it's the 48-yard touchdown pass Rodgers threw to Randall Cobb in the final minute of the regular-season finale against the Bears.

Know thy enemy: Packers - Rob Demovsky: Teams were concerned about how long Eddie Lacy would last, both because of his bruising running style and his injury history. Will he get the last laugh?
