Once Week 17 ended last year, the Bears had to answer a lot of questions about their defense, about their quarterback, and about their transition from a defensive juggernaut to an offensive powerhouse. Between Jay Cutler's contract, a free-agency and draft-pick overhaul of their defensive line, additional coaching continuity, and faith in development, they hope those questions are answered.
We'll start finding out answers to those questions tomorrow. Here's how you can follow the action.
