2019 has been a total struggle for the Bears, but there are still games to be played and this Sunday against the Giants might be the last time the Bears are favored this season
This team will not be in the playoffs in a year where the Bears were deemed “ready” to compete for a title, which means the final six games will be an observation in futility.
Nine games into the season and the Chicago Bears are at a compelling fork in the road.
Ultimately, this game saw two pretty evenly-matched teams sizing each other with only one team’s starting quarterback healthy. That put Chicago in the rare position of having the better play-making signal-caller in a 2019 match-up.
The first half Sunday was one for the books, the kind of books you write into and bury deep into the Earth so no one in the next 1000 years could be aware of your complete, utter embarrassment.
Another loss could irreversibly undermine the winning culture the Bears tried establishing this season.
No one looked worse on Sunday than head coach Matt Nagy and quarterback Mitchell Trubisky. Nothing is scarier in football than having doubts in both your head coach and your quarterback.
Saying “its still early” no longer applies for the Bears — the team they show us this week is likely the team left for us to dissect the rest of this season.
This would be a good time for an official State of the Union address for the Chicago Bears, though at such times the average administration would have a better approval rating than this franchise currently has.
The now “Money Losing Mitch” is in no arguable way a deserving starting NFL quarterback right now. He’s just lucky to be on maybe the one NFL team with no earthly option to replace him.
