Three Chicago Bears appear on the 2013 All Disappointment Team from SBN

You almost got him Shea!!! Good job, good effort! - Jason Bridge-USA TODAY Sports

The Chicago Bears defense was historically bad, so there is no surprise that SB Nation included a few Bears on their 2013 All Disappointment Team. I was surprised that there were only three...

SB Nation, who if you don't know is the Mothership to Windy City Gridiron and hundreds of other team sites, recently revealed their All Disapointment Team for the 2013 season. There were three Chicago Bears defenders that received mention.

Yeah, I know what you're thinking, 'Only three?'

Defensive end Shea McClellin was the first Bear mentioned on this team, and here's what they had to say about his play.

The Bears' proud defense hit the skids in 2013, and 2012 first-rounder Shea McClellin did little to stop the slide. His run defense was terrible, helping to account for the Bears' league-worst 4.75 adjusted line yards per carry (the yardage attributed to offensive/defensive line play by FootballOutsiders.com) on runs behind behind opposing right tackles. Those tackles frequently got the best of McClellin in pass protection as well, and his total of 6.5 sacks across two seasons of play raises big questions about his viability as a big-time rusher. The Bears are reportedly considering a move to outside linebacker in 2014 to try to light McClellin's fire.

I think the move to OLB is more to save face and to hopefully find a job he can actually do in the NFL.

So congrats to Shea McClellin on being named 1st Team All Disappointment for 2013!

The other two Bears on this list were included in the Dishonorable Mentions category. Here's what they had to say about the other two disappointing Bears.

Julius Peppers, Bears (age caught up with Peppers in a big hurry in 2013, casting his 2014 future with the team into doubt)

Major Wright, Bears (frequently transformed a Cover 2 into a Cover Nobody)

Only Peppers and Wright?

They must have felt that the Chris Conte drop-off was expected...

Who were your most disappointing Chicago Bears?
