After a disappointing Thursday Night Football loss to the Commanders, the Chicago Bears sit 2-4, and the No. 1 positive is that the Bears’ 2023 draft pick just got better.

Other than that, it was a roller coaster of a game.

Had a few plays gone the Bears’ way, there’s a likelihood that the Chicago Bears are 3-3 heading into a long week of preparation for Week 7.

However, that’s not the case.

The Chicago Bears continue to shoot themselves in the feet

Three weeks in a row, the Chicago Bears lose by single digits, and the leader of this team is getting tired of it. And rightfully so.

In six weeks of football, Justin Fields has been sacked 23 times, which is tied for the most times being sacked this season.

As stated previously, the Chicago Bears have been in their last three losses til the end, and yet, they find themselves 0-3 in their last three.

The Bears haven’t necessarily played terribly in these last three games, but there’s much more to be desired, especially after seeing what Justin Fields is capable of in the Vikings game.

So, what is there to overreact about this week?

Plenty. Absolutely plenty.

It was a game with many mental errors, physical errors, and schematic errors, there’s a whole grocery list of overreactions.

To reference Jameis Winston when asked where the pain was: Yeah, just [errors.] [Errors] everywhere. 

And due to that, overreactions will be everywhere. At least for now.
