The Chicago Bears have been one of the most disappointing teams in the NFL this season, and it’s due to a litany of problems.
Their quarterback stinks, they lack top-end talent at the skill positions in general, their offensive line is porous and even their well-renowned defense has taken a step back.
No one thing is going to be the solution for the Bears, as it’s looking more and more like their 12-win campaign in 2018 was more smoke and mirrors — and perhaps the product of a weak NFC North — more than anything else.
With Chicago sitting at 3-5 entering Week 10 and staring an early offseason in the face, it’s time for the Bears to start thinking about how they will improve their team going into 2020.
One obvious area of concern is the run game.
Chicago went into this season thinking it would have sort of a three-headed monster in its backfield that featured Mike Davis, Tarik Cohen and rookie David Montgomery.
Instead, what we have gotten is an unmitigated disaster.
