Locker clean out day came earlier again at Halas Hall after the Bears failed to make the postseason for the sixth year in a row.
If Jeffery is right and the Bears improve dramatically next season, then the playoffs will be a reality for the first time since 2010. They turned the ball over five times and were defeated by 28 points - their largest margin of defeat this season.

Alshon Jeffery: "I guarantee you we are going to win the Super Bowl next year". "You've got to have faith and put in the work".
"Trust me when I tell you", Jeffery told Jon Greenberg after the Bears' Sunday Night Football loss to the Dallas Cowboys. "We're just like the [New England Patriots], the only difference is just a few plays here and there".
If Jeffery wants to play in a Super Bowl, he might as well join the Patriots. We went to New England and practiced; they know. "I definitely believe we're going to shock the world next year, so tune in and be ready".
While most outside Halas Hall no doubt will scoff at Jeffery's prediction, Long understands that no individual knows exactly what will happen in the future. We're here. Soldier Field will still be standing.
