Bears

Marc Trestman said he is going ahead with what he plans to say to the team at an 11 a.m. meeting on Monday, with the clear statement that he is planning on talking about 2015.
The Bears wrapped up a miserable season with a 5-11 finish Sunday. For this year's team, the problems, in all phases, started early in the year and generally only got worse, not better.
After the latest defeat Sunday against the Vikings, Bears players opened up about the loss of trust between players and coaches, perhaps the most damaging dagger to the Marc Trestman regime.
