The Bears now sit 1-3 in the NFC North, three full games behind Detroit and 3½ behind Green Bay (the Packers play the New England Patriots on Sunday). This is not a playoff team. The organization’s eye must be toward the future, but the present is equally important. Think about it.

DETROIT -- Strong outings by Chicago’s defense in wins against Minnesota and Tampa Bay conjured the illusion it might be headed toward respectability. But what the Chicago Bears really proved Thursday in a 34-17 loss to the Detroit Lions is they are closer to the group that gave up 50 points in back-to-back weeks at New England and Green Bay than the one that forced four turnovers last week in a triumph against the Buccaneers. "It was extremely disappointing today, and I don’t put it on the defense," Bears coach Marc Trestman said.

DETROIT — After sacking Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford late in the third quarter of Thursday's 34-17 loss to the Lions at Ford Field, Bears defensive end Willie Young started performing for the Thanksgiving Day crowd.
