Monsters, Inc.: Bears management will have a lot of significant decisions to make. The first will be finding a successor to former coach Lovie Smith. After that decision is made, the Bears will have to decide whether they should extend the contract of Jay Cutler, whose deal is up after next season. The team also needs to figure out if it wants 34-year-old Brian Urlacher back. His deal expires in March.
