The Chicago Bears head coach tried to warn us.
At one point in the season, the Chicago Bears were 5-1 and a game out of the No. 1 overall seed in the entire NFC. Just six weeks and five games later, they are 5-6 and reeling after five straight losses, including their most recent de-pantsing by the Green Bay Packers on national television.
Some might be surprised by this downward spiral. Many of us knew what this team was after just a couple of weeks of the season — yours truly included.
