When will the Bears win their first game?

With 13 games remaining, when will Chicago get a W?

NFL: Chicago Bears at Dallas Cowboys Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports

The Bears have had a much worse start to the season just about anyone in Chicago would have guessed before the season started.

The team can’t seem to get out of their own way, showing up unprepared and without an identity on their way to an 0-3 start.

The mistakes, the injuries, the overall poor play and unimaginative scheming have all contributed to the issues and now they welcome in the Detroit Lions to Soldier Field.

While in most years the Bears would welcome in the Lions when Chicago is in need of a win but recent history says that this is not the case.

Did you know that the Bears have not beat the Lions since Lovie Smith’s last game on December 30, 2012? That was Smith’s last game as Bears head coach.

Since then they have lost six straight. That’s two coaches and two general managers that have not been able to defeat the Lions. The Lions are 25-23 in that time, hardly among the league’s elite.

So even this weekend’s game is hardly a given.

With that in mind, let’s run down the Bears’ remaining schedule, with their current record and then you cast your vote for when the Bears will get their first win. Be sure to tell us your reasoning in the comments.
