1. The Chicago Bears secondary and offensive line are not good enough

One of the big issues with the Chicago Bears this season has been their health. Their offensive line and secondary were supposed to be their best and most upgraded units from the offseason. 

On the line, Nate Davis got off of the ground. It was a personal issue early and an ankle issue now. Braxton Jones had a neck injury sidelined him from weeks three through eight. 

Teven Jenkins missed the first four weeks of the season, and it has led to Lucas Patrick and Cody Whitehair shuffling. The only time the team had Jenkins and Davis at guard, the Bears ran all over Washington and scored 40 points. 

Braxton Jones started and finished his first game since week two, and the Bears beat Carolina. 

In the secondary, the Bears lost Kyler Gordon in week one and Eddie Jackson in week two. Jaylon Johnson went down in week three. Jackson was back in week six but then missed time again.

When he returned, Jaquan Brisker missed weeks eight and nine. Finally, in week ten, the starting five from the preseason started and finished a game. One game out of ten is a major disappointment for what was supposed to be the best unit on the team.
