The Bears, Rams, Eagles and Colts know that all too well, as all four teams lost key performers for weeks or for the season. The Rams will have to replace QB Sam Bradford, while the Colts lost lost Reggie Wayne. The Eagles' QB situation was muddled when Nick Foles' concussion reopened questions about who should start in Philly. And the Bears, already fighting injury losses on defense, will be without quarterback Jay Cutler and linebacker Lance Briggs for weeks. Which of these teams was dealt the lousiest cards?
