For a Bears team that had playoff aspirations going into the 2014 season, there's been a growing sense of frustration in the locker room.


After a 3-0 start last season, the Bears have gone 8-12 under Marc Trestman, and one inescapable suspicion is that the NFL has figured him out.


Amid a dismal 27-14 loss to the Miami Dolphins, the Bears were left in a complicated state of rage, uncertainty, frustration and nearly every other negative emotion.


The pattern isn’t new: win at turnovers, win at football.


Ex-Bear Gabe Carimi has started three games for the Atlanta Falcons. One at left tackle, one at tight end and most recently, one at right tackle.
