These aren't the Bears that fans grew to love - the ones who looked like Super Bowl contenders after starting the season 7-1. In a showdown with Green Bay on Sunday, somehow it didn't matter that the Packers' kicker missed two field goals. Or that they racked up 104 penalty yards. Or had a trick play go horribly wrong. Somehow the Bears still ended up losing 21-13 at Soldier Field. It's even more depressing to think that the Packers wrapped up the NFC North title with the win, and the Bears' playoff hopes are iffy at best.

And just like that, the Bears' quarterback debate is settled. Ha, we couldn't even write that with a straight face, much less say or think it. Jay Cutler did just enough in his latest comeback from injury this season, throwing for 265 yards and three touchdowns in the Bears' 38-31 win at Cleveland on Sunday. That's the good news, combined with the fact that at 8-6, the Bears are alone in first in the NFC North, pending Detroit's clash with Baltimore on Monday night. This is the part where we point out that because the Lions own the tiebreaker, the Bears must finish with a better record than...

Lucky for you, we've done the work already. And by that we mean we've assembled this quiz so you can catch up on what you missed.

Keeper leagues are picking up steam in fantasy football, and I am a big fan of the concept. Here are three players you should consider hanging on to if you are in such a league, or consider drafting them in the early rounds next year. Alshon Jeffery, Bears wide receiver Jeffery is developing into a top-line wide receiver. After an injury-plagued rookie season, he's a big reason why the Bears have one of the best receiving corps in football. His stats are off the charts; two 200-yard receiving games, more than 1,100 receiving yards total and five touchdowns.

He's back. The quarterback who made Bears fans' lives a living hell. The man who can't show his face in Chicago ever again. Caleb Hanie. The Bears will get a heavy dose of their former backup QB as the preseason begins Thursday, though we admit there are much bigger short-term draws, namely the return of Super Bowl XLI villain Peyton Manning. It's also fans' first real look at Brandon Marshall as a Bear. We won't see much of them, unfortunately, but there are a few Bears who must get off to a great start, preseason or not.   J'Marcus Webb The Bears' left tackle was...

RedEye asked the Bears to single out which teammates they're most excited to see on the field - one each on offense, defense and special teams, and one rookie. OFFENSE Robbie Gould, kicker: Brandon Marshall. He's been great. He's a big-bodied receiver with a lot of ability. He'll be able to open the field up for the other receivers. And it's definitely a threat that the defenses are going to have to look out for. Kelvin Hayden, cornerback: I'll have to go with Brandon Marshall.

Welcome to the graveyard. Nice quote by Kyle Korver after Derrick Rose went down: "God does his best work in life's graveyards. " I guess my response would be: "If you find yourself in a graveyard, stop digging. " I have no idea what that means but it sounds pretty cool. For the Bulls, I'm afraid the title hopes are done. But the season is far from over. Stay with me. The old Bulls only became great by having to overcome the Pistons - as a team. These Bulls will have to learn to be great without Rose - pure and simple.

The Bears crowd at Rogers Park's Poitin Stil filed in one by one before kickoff, and with each new fan came a shout of "Bears!" from the rest of the bar, as if this were Cheers and Bears fans were Norm. I was at a table with my buddies Ben and Ben, the three of us waiting for our pal Tony the Packers Fan, a man surely downtrodden after Green Bay blew a game in Indianapolis. Halfway into the first quarter a friend of Tony's in a Colts hat walked in and received applause and a standing ovation.

The Bears are still in first place in the NFC North. That's how an optimist would see the Bears' situation after a 42-21 loss at St. Louis on Sunday. It all kind of falls apart from there, however. Yes, Detroit lost to Tampa Bay on Sunday, so the Bears and Lions are both 6-5. But considering Detroit holds the tiebreaker by virtue of beating the Bears twice this year, it's tough to get overly excited. Besides, there were so many other reasons to think this season has gone from bad to worse.

Jay Cutler's career with the Bears has been full of twists and turns. Unfortunately, most of those involve body parts. The "signature" moment of Cutler's Bears career was shivering on the sidelines during the NFC championship game, leading everyone to question his toughness and leadership (you know you did). Which makes Sunday a strange reversal in potentially one of Cutler's last Bears games when fans wanted him out of the game earlier. Since the NFC title game, Cutler has gone out of his way to prove his toughness.

The Lions are coming to Chicago on Sunday, with both teams tied atop the NFC North at 5-3. For the Bears, 2013 has been a season in transition - they still have a star unit, but it's the offense, not the defense, that's turning heads. So in honor of the offensive star power and a date with Detroit, here are eight movies set in the Motor City that apply to the dominance of Marc Trestman's troops.

If you're one of those fans who watched Monday's Bears-Packers game simply to pass the time before the release of "Call of Duty: Ghosts" on Tuesday, well, that's understandable. However, you might not have realized Marc Trestman's team strikes a parallel with the game. You could say the Bears, like the protagonists in "Ghosts," represent "a crippled nation fighting not for freedom, or liberty, but simply to survive. " (That synopsis comes straight from the game's website.) After all, the Bears have so many injuries to key players that the underdog card is one of...

NFL midseason reports usually are written after eight games - ya know, at midseason. But with seven games in the books and injuries piling up, the 2013 Bears have reached a crossroads. No time like the present, then, to distribute awards and look at what's to come.   MARTELLUS BENNETT The Mike Ditka Award for Best Season Ever for a Chicago Bears Tight End Iron Mike, meet the Black Unicorn. When the Bears signed Bennett after his one season with the N.Y. Giants, nobody knew quite what to expect from the gabby, imaginative player.

I was sitting at the Blue Line Bar watching the Bears eek out a loss to New Orleans when two Bears veterans made horrible plays. People were rolling off the train and lining up to watch Cutler and the offense march and march and march. The Bears were driving and all was looking up. Then a fourth-and-2 pass bounced off the normally reliable mitts of Earl Bennett. Six plays later, Drew Brees tricked Lance Briggs into jumping offside on a fourth-and-1, leading to a game-clinching field goal.

Last weekend, I finally started "Breaking Bad. " I rolled through Season 1 in two nights, and then this weekend started Season 2. But I had to stop watching during Episode 5. The show was too tense and uncomfortable, but mostly I couldn't deal with Walt's treatment of Jesse. Why is he so mean to this kid? What kind of a high school teacher repeatedly calls one of his former students "stupid"? Just unacceptable. I had similar frustrations while watching the Bears-Lions game Sunday.

Brian Urlacher's playing career is over, but he's still dishing out hits. Since becoming an analyst for Fox Sports 1, the legendary Bears linebacker has stirred the pot on faking injuries, why he hates some of the NFL rules changes and how Jay Cutler gave him the brush-off. He should have had interesting things to say after the Bears rallied to top Minnesota 31-30 on Sunday in a wild shootout at Soldier Field. Jay Cutler threw two interceptions and fumbled once. But he also fired three touchdown passes, including a 16-yarder to Martellus...
