Injuries ruin another Chicago Bears season

Week 7 injuries have ruined a lot of teams’ seasons and maybe even some players’ careers. The Chicago Bears did not escape.

Pro Bowl linebacker Lance Briggs injured his shoulder last Sunday and is expected to miss 4-6 weeks, while quarterback Jay Cutler injured his groin and is expected to miss at least four weeks. Meanwhile, cornerback Charless Tillman re-aggravated a knee injury. Tillman’s injury isn’t going to keep him out of games, but it has slowed him down and barred him from playing parts of games.

The Bears’ defense is razor thin right now. It was already one of the NFL’s worst defenses (currently 25th in the league) with a healthy Briggs and Tillman. And now with them out, it’s going to be nearly impossible for the Bears to win games.

Chicago has a bye next week, but in the next three games they’ll face the Packers, Lions, and Ravens. The Bears will have virtually no defense going into those games.

It would be a miracle if the Bears won even one of those games.

Jay Cutler

A somewhat promising season has most likely gone down the drain for now the third year in a row.

The injuries hurt more this season because the Bears have finally improved their offense. The new additions at the offensive line have worked out very well. Sacks are down, and Cutler was noticeably more comfortable in the pocket. He was on pace for career-best numbers before Sunday.

The Bears have two solid receivers in Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery, and Matt Forte is having the best season of his career. The offense is second in the league (30.4) in points per game. That’s something the Bears have never done.

The offense was everything you could want and more.

But consistency is still elusive, and it’s not going to get any easier in the future. Cutler’s contract is up at the end of this season, and with the low level of play from the defense, it looks like it’s going to need a major reshuffling.

It’s not something people want to admit, but the Bears may be back in the rebuilding stage after this season.
