Welcome to SB Nation Reacts, a survey of fans across the NFL. Each week, we send out questions to the most plugged in Bears fans, and fans across the country. Sign up here to join Reacts.

With a third straight loss for the Chicago Bears, a drop in the confidence poll results was inevitable. Only 15% of Bears’ fans are confident in the direction of this team right now.

That’s tied with fans of the Jacksonville Jaguars and is only better than the 4% of Detroit fans confident in the direction of their Lions.

Even fans of the 0-9 New York Jets are more confident in the direction of their team (19%), but that’s probably because they know they are tanking their way towards a top quarterback in the 2021 NFL Draft.

The Bears are seemingly stuck in QB Hell, with nothing long term on the current roster at the position, and a defense too good to allow them to lose enough games to draft a potential franchise savior.

The Bears have the Minnesota Vikings up next on Monday Night, and a win would certainly give the team a confidence boost heading into their bye, but what would it do for us fans?

Would it boost our morale? Would we feel better about their playoff chances? Would we be disappointed at their draft positioning taking a hit?
