The Bears came out completely flat against the Dolphins in front of their home crowd and they failed to make the necessary adjustments as the game went on. For the third time this season, the Bears lost a home game, dropping them to 0-3.
How significant is that stat?
Well, the last time the Bears dropped their first three home games was during the 2004 season—a year in which they won just five games. Simply put, the Bears have way too much talent to be 3-4 and they have yet to establish an identity.
Even more importantly, with upcoming road games against the New England Patriots and the Packers, a 3-6 record is definitely a possibility. How this teams responds over the next two weeks will tell us a lot about who they really are.
