What else could fans of the Chicago Bears be asking after the team crapped its collective pants against the Kansas City Chiefs at Soldier Field last Saturday in their third preseason game.
After what’s considered the last real dress rehearsal before the regular season, it’s pretty apparent that an injury plagued training camp and preseason already have the Bears trying to tread water and searching for life vests in the rip currents of Lake Michigan.
The depth of the Bears roster has proven itself to be lacking of even replacement level NFL talent. If players like Kyle Long, Eddie Royal, Zack Miller, Tracy Porter, Pernell McPhee and Danny Trevathan can’t find a way to stay healthy and on the field, the team will struggle on both sides of the ball. Not to mention the quarterback position taking the worst kind of hit to its depth on Saturday.
As preseason winds down and teams across the league begin to trim down their rosters in preparation for the regular season, the Bears will be picking through the scraps looking to get lucky like a bunch of creeps on Back Page. Hopefully they don’t catch crabs or get robbed.
