Bears | Rivera focused on strengthening defense

Brad Biggs, of the Chicago Sun-Times, reports Chicago Bears defensive coordinator Ron Rivera appears likely to return to the club next season after being turned down for the head coaching job with the Dallas Cowboys. While Rivera will need a new contract from the team, he discussed the upcoming evaluation of personnel heading into the offseason. ''I want to get a real good feel for what our shortcomings were and how to correct them,'' said Rivera, who stated he would review the Super Bowl tape. ''This last season, coming into this year, there were some things in the defensive backfield we needed to shore up, some technique things. Charles Tillman had the type of year that he should have gone to the Pro Bowl."
