Just about everything that could have possibly went wrong for the Bears on Sunday night did, in fact, go wrong. Jay Cutler turned in another lackluster performance with 272 passing yards, one touchdown and two interceptions. In addition, Cutler fumbled and was sacked three times. Matt Forte struggled to run against a porous Green Bay defense and tallied just 54 yards on 17 carries. Brandon Marshall provided the lone bright spot for the team with eight catches for 112 yards and a touchdown and finally got back into his No. 1 receiver form, albeit during a blowout. The Bears are undoubtedly out of playoff contention now and will need to start looking at their options heading into next season, which begins with re-evaluating their coaching staff. Sorry, Marc Trestman — but that includes you, too.
