“Everybody could get axed.” Mark Potash reports that’s what Bears QB Jay Cutler had to say prior to the final game of the season, and while that could be a comforting thought for Bears fans, it’s certainly not a money back guarantee.

Former Chicago Bears head coach George Halas … er, Lovie Smith brings his 2-8 Tampa Bay Buccaneers to town with QB Josh McCown in tow, and though Trestman may be shrugging it off, you know that a loss to the Bucs, especially under these circumstances, would be disastrous for the Bears’ current coach.
