The Bears piled up 445 points in 2013 which was best for the second-most in franchise history.

For the first time since many people can remember, there are very few question marks on the offensive side of the ball. The Bears have arguably one of the best set of skill position players on offense in the league in quarterback Jay Cutler, wide receivers Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery, running back Matt Forte and tight end Martellus Bennett.

And although there were struggles last season, Sports Illustrated's Peter King believes the arrow is pointing up for Marc Trestman and the Bears. But they have to answer questions on the defensive side of the ball this offseason.

"The one thing I see when I look at this team and the players on this team, I see a team that's set in their ways, particularly on defense," King said. "But they're growing old on defense. I think the defensive team on the Bears is going to be an evolution in the next year or two."
