While an 11-5 season may not seem like an up-and-down year, the Chicago Bears had some pretty sharp declines on their road to an NFC North title in 2010. It's those declines that still have Bears' fans a bit weary heading into the playoffs.
For the Bears to be successful, the formula is quite simple. They have to be balanced and consistent. They can't have those same types of ups and downs they had against teams like Detroit. Teams in the postseason won't give Chicago those games.
The following guys will have to show consistency if a "certain team from a certain town" hopes to be hoisting a certain trophy come next month.
