The Chicago Bears finally won a game. It only took them six attempts. This five-game losing streak was one game less than they dealt with last year, but this year did not start out as well for the team, leaving them at 4-7 on the year. Now, where do they go from here? Are they still in the playoff hunt? There are so many questions that need to be answered — mostly having to do with who will be the head coach, general manager, and hopefully team President in 2022?

Nothing happened regarding the craziness surrounding this team and the Matt Nagy situation. I’m not going to rehash any of that here, if you want to read how all of this has gone down, just check out these prior articles here and here.

Now, the title of this article is five players who have let the team down in 2021. Obviously, Matt Nagy, Ryan Pace, Ted Phillips and George McCaskey must be at the top of the list. This is just way too obvious of choices though. I wanted to focus on the players themselves.

These five players have let the Chicago Bears down this year

I am also going to preface this with the fact that players such as Khalil Mack who was playing well but is now hurt will not count. Teven Jenkins who hasn’t played due to a back injury will not count (He will finally be active. this week though). However, if a player is now hurt but was not meeting expectations prior to the injury, he will count. That brings us to the first player who has let us down this year.
