Will the Bears look into safeties in the draft or free agency this offseason? -- @joytb3 I have little doubt that safety will be one of the positions the Bears address this offseason. Ryan Mundy has been about what I think most people expected. He’s...

You can admit it if you lost a ton of faith in the Bears after that disappointing loss to Buffalo in Week 1. You can also admit that even after Week 2's incredible comeback at San Francisco, you're still skeptical that, say, Jay Cutler and the defense...
