Considering the circumstances of this game against the Pittsburgh Steelers — down Khalil Mack, Eddie Jackson, Alec Ogletree, or Damien Williams — the major expectation for the Chicago Bears was to not get blown out on national television.

And to the Chicago Bears’ credit, they didn’t get blown out on national television!

Even with the progress made by some, the Chicago Bears still disappoint on Monday Night Football against the Pittsburgh Steelers

In fact, some parts of the team — Justin Fields for example — looked competent. Not to mention, the offense seemed to start giving Fields some help. There were fewer dropped balls, fewer destroyed pockets, less ill-advised rookie mistakes by Fields; and yet, the Chicago Bears found a way to disappoint.

Thankfully for Bears fans, there’s progress. Comparing this game to the game against Cleveland, the Chicago Bears are essentially a new team. Obviously, there are still holes to be filled, but the team isn’t a complete dumpster fire.

However, now is the time to look at less of the positives and more of the negatives, as we start with the first disappointing part of the Chicago Bears’ loss on Monday Night Football.
