Chicago Bears: Star Players for 2014

Quarterback: Jay Cutler

Jay Cutler was drafted by the Denver Broncos with the 11th pick of the 2006 draft. Cutler was consistent as a starter in 2007 and had his breakout season in 2008, being selected for the NFC Pro Bowl team despite the Broncos finishing with an 8-8 record. A dispute with new Broncos coach Josh McDaniels led to Cutler being drafted to the Chicago Bears in 2009. Cutler was inconsistent in 2009 and bore the brunt of the criticism for the Bears finishing the season 7-9 despite a 3-1 start. Cutler rebounded in 2010 leading the Bears to the playoffs and the NFC Championship game. Cutler started the 2011 season well but had his season ended by a broken thumb in week ten. Under new coach Marc Trestman, Cutler recorded passer ratings over 90 for the first time since 2009 in the 2013 season. Cutler ended the season completing 224 of 355 passes for 2,621 yards, 19 touchdowns, 12 interceptions, and a career-high 89.2 passer rate.

Offensive Star: Matt Forte

Running back Matt Forte was drafted by the Chicago Bears in the second round of the 2008 NFL draft. Forte was the first Bears running back to run for over 1000 yards in his rookie season and finished fourth in NFL rookie of the year voting. Forte has been the Bears most consistent offensive weapon since his debut and contributes as both a back and a receiver. 2011 was Forte's best season, with the twenty-six year old rewarded with selection in the NFC Pro Bowl team. Forte finished the 2013 season with 1,339 rushing yards, the ninth-most in franchise history. They also ranked second in the NFL for 2013. He was one of three finalists for the FedEx Ground Player of the Year award.

Defensive Star: James Anderson

James Anderson is a linebacker for the Bears. He played college football at Virginia Tech before being drafted in the third round of the 2006 NFL Draft by Carolina Panthers. In March 2013, Anderson signed a contract with the Bears. He ended his first season leading the Bears in tackles with 129.5, along with recording 42 assisted tackles and 7.5 tackles for loss.

Head Coach: Marc Trestman

Marc Trestman was appointed head coach by the Bears following a successful period with CFL side Montreal Alouettes, winning back to back Grey Cup's in his five year stint with the club. In a career that has already spanned more than thirty years, Trestman has taken the tag of a QB journeyman, having held that coaching position at eight NFL franchises. Trestman began his era with a 24-21 win over the Bengals, making him the fourth head coach in Bears history to win in his coaching debut. He ended the Bears' 2013 season 8-8.
