Losing rarely builds character. It usually does, however, reveal it.
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.
The 2014 cause-effect issue has pretty clear: Jay Cutler throws interceptions, Bears lose. Jay Cutler goes pick-free, Bears win.
The pattern isn’t new: win at turnovers, win at football.
