The Chicago Bears, as a team, feel like a lost cause. However, in an 0-3 season, the team still has things to play for when it comes to the future, and of course, it is too early to mathematically eliminate the team, although their playoff odds are so slim.

So, who are the players on the roster that are a lost cause? Who are the players that really will have a hard time turning anything around and changing the perception of who they are in the eyes of the Chicago Bears?

5. The Chicago Bears need to admit Velus Jones is a bust

There is nothing that Velus Jones can do to change the idea that he is officially a bust. What stings is that so many fans saw this one coming. He was not a great prospect, and he turned into a bad pro. Three games into his second year, and he is on pace to be worse than his rookie season.

Considering his rookie year was a disaster, you have to be impressed that Jones is pulling this off. He was inactive for week one, played four snaps in week one, and stuck to just special teams in week three.

In one of the first snaps he was on the field, the Bears tried to design a play for him, but it was like a red alert that he was only in to get the ball, so the play was blown up for a loss.

Velus Jones does not bring anything. He does not run routes and has to be schemed the ball. He does not return punts. Jones only returns kicks, and those are getting taken out of the game with more touchbacks than ever. He might as well be inactive for Equanimeous St. Brown, and Tyler Scott should take any of his offensive snaps.
