The Chicago Bears are now fully entrenched into what will be a long offseason. At this point, there are more questions about the team than answers. The Bears followed up a disappointing 2019 season with another disappointing year.

The team made the playoffs for the third time in three years but only did so because of an expansion in this year’s playoff format, and because another team lost in week 17. After making the playoffs the team was a quick one and done, losing to the Saints with some ugly offensive play.

2020 was a rough year for the Bears and the team certainly had their fair share of duds. So one last time for the year, let’s look at some duds from the team in 2020.

The Chicago Bears offensive line was brutal for most of the year

Dud #4: The offensive line

This Bears offensive line was horrid for a good chunk of the season. They started off okay through the first few games but when James Daniels went down they crumbled quickly. Over the course of the losing steak is when they were at their worst.

The two tackles, Bobby Massie and Charles Leno, and Rashaad Coward were really struggling over this time. Putting Sam Mustipher in the lineup provided the line with some stability and Alex Bars was solid, filling in for Massie down the stretch.

Mustipher looks like he may be a solid find for this team but if I’m the Bears, I’m 100 percent looking to replace Leno at LT. They can slide him over if they want him in the lineup but after his solid 2018, he just hasn’t been a great LT. The line can be argued as the most important part of the offense and the Bears need to do some re-tooling.
