I think we’re witnessing the lowest point in Bears history.
Once again, this team was embarrassed at home, on national television, but this time, to a 5-8 Saints team. From top to bottom, this season has been a complete failure. The Bears have been manhandled three weeks in a row, and Marc Trestman shows no signs of adjusting his game plan.
Last night, the Bears showed little fight, little passion, and very little cohesion. Jay Cutler turned the ball over three times. Two of those interceptions led to points, and any rational and logical person would tell you that that’s no way to win a football game.
Cutler’s interceptions absolutely factored into this loss, but he received no help from the Bears battered offensive line. Cutler was under pressure most of the game. Marc Trestman’s inability to establish some sort of run/pass balance hampered the offense, but we’ve heard that before.
This team cannot succeed with Trestman as the head coach. He’s lost his locker room, and it was evident last night. The Saints ranked 31st in overall defense coming into last night game, and the Bears scored a whopping 15 points. One of those touchdowns were scored in garbage time, by the way. Didn’t the Bears hire Marc Trestman to be an offensive guru? How can this unit be so underachieving, while also being loaded with talent? That’s on you, Marc.
The good news is, the season is only two weeks away from being over. I have a feeling Halas Hall is going to be very busy come Black Monday.
