The Chicago Bears are a flawed team. They are in the 2nd year of a new regime, but injuries have prevented them from seeing the product they envisioned to take the field. Hroniss Grasu, Jeremy Langford, Jay Cutler, Eddie Goldman, Pernell McPhee, Leonard Floyd, Kevin White, Kyle Fuller and Lamarr Houston are some of the players that have missed multiple games this season.
The constant shuffling of the lineup, whether by choice (revamping the o-line before week 1) or because of injury, isn’t helping this regime discover exactly what they have.
Last night’s 26-10 loss to the Green Bay Packers was a chore to watch. It was some bad football by both teams (thanks Thursday Night Football), but the Packers just kept their foot on the gas until the Bears were running on fumes. The Bears were already down a number of key players, but then quarterback Brian Hoyer and right guard Kyle Long left with injuries. Playing with the QB3 on the road is tough to overcome for any team, let along one that has been struggling to score like the Bears.
But there were a few bright spots for the Bears right?
I know there were, because I actually cheered a few times during the game. It was tough, but I managed to discuss some of the bright spots in my latest podcast. Give it a listen and let us know in the comment section what positives you’re hoping to see from this Bears team in the coming weeks.
