Wow… what a game by the Chicago Bears.

The Chicago Bears, top-down, is hopefully taking a long look at the whys, as this game was Cleveland Browns-esque.

As is tradition each week, it’s time to look at the most disappointing Chicago Bears of the week, and unfortunately, I can’t say them all– or at least a large majority.

Well, one of the biggest wins is that Mario Edwards didn’t keep his streak alive of unsportsmanlike penalties; Bilal Nichols took over that job this week. So much so, that it got him kicked out of the game. Just really disappointing to watch.

The Chicago Bears are a disappointing NFL franchise, and it’s not getting better anytime soon

What’s even more disappointing, potentially, is I talked myself into believing this was a winnable game.

No Gronk, no Antonio Brown, no Lavonte David, and essentially none of their defensive secondary.

Well, unfortunately not even the grocery list of injuries could help this disappointing Chicago Bears team.

To be fair, Chicago was also dealing with their own lack of personnel, as the following weren’t available for the Week 7 matchup against Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers:

  • Nick Foles
  • Breshad Perriman
  • Tashaun Gipson
  • Akiem Hicks.

And along with those players, these players were on the COVD-19 list:

  • Jimmy Graham
  • Robert Quinn
  • Elijah Wilkinson
  • Caleb Johnson

Not to mention, Wilkinson was informed that he wasn’t going to be playing as the players arrived at the facilities in the morning.

That means the Chicago Bears played with a fifth-string right tackle against one of the best pass rushers in the league in Shaq Barrett. It’s just Déjà Vu, as the Chicago Bears constantly get out-schemed when the opposing scheme really isn’t rocket science.

The Bears surely had players that disappointed last week, so let’s see who the first disappointing Chicago Bears is.
