The Chicago Bears were blown out once again this past weekend to drop to 3-4 on the season, and the widespread drama surrounding the organization has returned.

Everything went wrong for the Chicago Bears in Week 7

The Chicago Bears needed to be at their absolute best to compete with a team of Tampa Bay’s caliber, and they were the exact opposite. Not many people predicted a Bears win, but the defeat came in a humiliating fashion and marked a new low for the team. The Bears were outclassed in every facet of the game; from on the field to coaching, they were completely outmatched by the defending champs.

Justin Fields struggled 

Justin Fields had the worst game of his young career, with five total turnovers. Fields threw three interceptions and had three total fumbles, two of which were recovered by the defense. It’s worth pointing the turnovers may not have been completely on Fields. Two of the interceptions came on a throw off of Darnell Mooney’s fingertips that ended up in a defender’s hands and another where Allen Robinson fell, leading the defender to make an uncontested interception. Still, turnovers continue to be a problem for the young quarterback.

The defense struggled without Robert Quinn

Having Robert Quinn on the COVID list proved to be very costly as the Bears struggled to generate much pressure on Tom Brady. The team didn’t have a single sack and only recorded one quarterback hit. The team was able to hold Brady to season lows in passing yards and yards per attempt, but it ultimately wasn’t enough, and the Buccaneers’ rushing attack and great field position from Chicago turnovers led to 38 points for Tampa Bay.

After another bad loss, many Chicago fans have a lot to say. Here are five hot takes fans have submitted on the Chicago Bears entering week 8.
