The Bears are who we thought they were.
The Miami Dolphins were kind enough to give the Bears a franchise/Hall of Fame-caliber wide receiver when they traded Brandon Marshall to them in 2012 for a couple of third-round draft picks.
Matt Cavanaugh's been a backup quarterback to Joe Montana and Phil Simms on Super Bowl-winning teams.
The 2014 cause-effect issue has pretty clear: Jay Cutler throws interceptions, Bears lose. Jay Cutler goes pick-free, Bears win.
