You couldn’t miss Jay Cutler’s spreading the ball around in the Bears’ first-half vivisection of the Oakland Raiders on Friday.
I mean, he threw to three different tight ends in the first quarter alone, or two tight ends and the...

The first question is whether the Bears can address any of their many defensive problems as the free-agency signing period opens Tuesday.
