"According to one person. I guess she's biased," Cutler replied with a big smile at the end of his weekly media session at Halas Hall. The question was in reference to the tweet Cutler's former fiancee, Kristin Cavallari, delivered before Monday's game in Philadelphia.

However, when the dust settled, the Seahawks emerged with a 23-17 overtime win, relegating the Bears to a first-place tie with Green Bay. Who played like a beast and who ended up a bust?

Are you still ticked about Sunday's Bears loss? It was a special kind of frustrating, a level of hair-pulling and flat-screen shooting that only a few of Lovie Smith's 61 losses have reached. Here are the five worst games for frustrating Bears fans, ranked by amount of yelling we did at our TVs: No. 5: Dec. 11, 2011: Getting Tebowed With Jay Cutler out, the Bears weren't expected to do much.

It was Dec. 5, a regular Wednesday at Halas Hall, and Brandon Marshall was at the podium talking about injuries. Devin Hester and Alshon Jeffery had missed the recent game against Seattle, while fellow receiver Earl Bennett had suffered a concussion in that game. Were the Bears healthy? Marshall gave the answer all players give, one that amounts to: It's Week 14 in the NFL. Nobody's healthy. Then he paused, and smiled slightly. "Maybe a kicker," he said, as reporters chuckled.
