Change has come back to the Bears just as the team has come back to the field — but are the adjustments going to be enough against the high-powered Pack?
It was another terrible Monday Night Football loss and sadly, another game that was ripe for the Bears to take. Instead, more of the same questionable play and inherent problems defined another flat performance.
Time is running out for the Bears and their chances to make this season a good one, here’s how the Bears can take the right step in reinvigorating their season.
All the same head-scratching issues on offense showed up again in this game as Chicago yielded one 3 and out after another with too many stalled drives and turnovers sprinkled in to lead to a victory against any opponent.
Remember when the Bears were 5-1? Man, those were good times…reliving that far-off time may be tempting, but like an election, you can’t just sit on a hot start and say “that’s that.”
In their second loss in a six-day span, the Bears improved on a limp Monday Night performance, but familiar troubles reared their ugly heads again while some new ones popped up and slapped the heads of others.
Things look bleak right now for the Bears, but everything can change with a victory this Sunday against a Saints team that should challenge but aren’t too tough to overcome.
Given an early opportunity to take the No. 1 seed in the NFC, the Bears instead squandered their chance and are left with question after question.
Sorta hard to believe the Bears are so great record-wise with what fans have seen on the field — will this latest showcase add fuel to the Bears fire or start to show the 5-1 start has been a mirage?
Mack, Fuller and Co. are entertainers as much as they are guardians of an offense in frequent need of rescue. Still, the defense can double as a safety net but for only so long before its thread wears thin.
