With just under two weeks left until training camp starts, the Chicago Bears are forming their new identity, and the fans are slowly getting a look at the new team. Head coach Marc Trestman has his staff in place and has been working with quarterback Jay Cutler in hopes to send the quarterback back to the Pro Bowl.
One thing we already know about the Bears is that mediocrity will not be accepted in Chicago any longer.
Lovie Smith won 10 games and still ended up getting fired the Monday after the season ended. With that in mind, Trestman must rally his players and get them to the playoffs soon into his tenure in Chicago, or his stint with the Bears may be short lived.
The Bears went out and got some new players this offseason. However, there is a core of players that was on the team last season that must step up this year if the Bears are going to have any sort of shot at making the playoffs out of the NFC North.
