07:03 AM ET 07.08 | Among a good many questions facing new-look Chicago entering 2013 is whether its defense can maintain such a high level of play. The Bears hoped to retain coordinator Rod Marinelli from [Lovie Smith's] staff, but he moved on to Dallas, where he will coach the Cowboys defensive line. The Bears brought in Mel Tucker. ... It's going to be difficult for the Bears to excel in similar fashion with an aging defensive core led by end Julius Peppers, linebacker Lance Briggs and cornerback Charles Tillman. It's not a knock on Tucker and other new coaches. It's reality. ... Maybe the Bears can squeeze two more solid seasons out of the unit before a vast overhaul. That's going to be paramount for the team to compete in the NFC North.

I hope the Bears suck this year.I did not like the way they treated Lovie Smith, who did everything he could with the talent he had.

True... Now that he's gone, everyone is suddenly "old".
