Bears are closing than you guys are giving them credit for.  They absolutely need to improve the WR core.  Arguably the worst in the NFL right now.  They have a good, young QB, good RB, and a good line.  Defense has played well even with all the injuries.  Make smart draft picks next year and sign a few impact FA and they will make the playoffs next season.

I'm not saying they need that to be 8-8, I'm saying they need that to win a title. To be respectable, they need guys who can catch and a competent QB

Well, it looks like we have the competent QB at least.  The guy never looked like he had the first-game jitters.  After the Vikings scored that last TD, they showed him putting on his helmet like "Time to get to work".

In regards to the second part, they did activate Gentry off of the practice squad today.  I have high hopes for him.  Looks like he can be a Wes Welker type of slot guy.  He made some pretty good catches in the pre-season. 

For the hand that we've been dealt injury-wise, we could be worse off.  Our WR's aren't pro-bowl guys, but they show promise.  Kendall Wright is slowly turning into that go-to possession receiver along with Miller at TE.
