How did it all come to this? - Moon Mullin takes a look at Marc Trestman's first two years in Chicago and why it's likely his last with the Bears.

Cutler, Bears' offense created a lot of their own problems - Jerry Palm: The Bears' offense needed to help out the defense this season but, even when it wasn't turning the ball over, its general ineptitude was a factor.

Christian Jones an oasis of optimism - Bob LeGere: There isn't a player on the roster who has come farther faster than the rangy, athletic Jones, who has impressed on and off the field.

Forte highly conditioned to punish his body to reap ultimate rewards - Rich Campbell: How does Matt Forte withstand the punishment of being one of the NFL's most utilized offensive players?

Jay Cutler improving despite Bears’ bizarre season - Moon Mullin: Jay Cutler’s year under Trestman and his staff may have produced strained relationships, but is likely also to go down as a season with some positives in the development of the (at least for now) franchise QB.

[Video] SportsTalk Live - Is it right decision to start Jay Cutler in season finale?

Fales will have to wait for his chance - Mark Potash: Jim Harbaugh rated him among the top 5 QBs in the draft, while Bill Belichick's interest is the most tangible sign that David Fales might be able to play in the NFL.

Ego Ferguson raising 18-year-old brother - Patrick Finley: It was a deal Ferguson had made with Webb back when he was in college: If he made it to the NFL, he’d move Webb in with him to shepherd Webb through the college recruiting process, and to ease the burden on their injured mother.

[Video] SportsTalk Live - What's Marc Trestman's mindset on Sunday?

[Video] SportsTalk Live - Phil Emery, Bears upper management very quiet.

[Video] - Chris Boden, Moon Mullin prepare for Bears season finale.

[Video] SportsTalk Live - Reaction to Lance Briggs' farewell.
