(670 The Score) The Bears were an entertaining brand of bad while going an NFL-worst 3-14 in 2022.
Now, they’re just abysmally, hopelessly bad. The latest indignation came Sunday, when the Bears were outclassed from start to finish in a 41-10 loss at the defending Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs. Chicago dropped to 0-3 with the setback and is now riding a franchise-worst 13-game losing streak. The Bears were outgained 456-203 in total offense.
Most concerningly in Score midday host Laurence Holmes’ mind, the Bears are regressing.
“In a year where things were supposed to be moving in a positive direction, where things were supposed to be getting incrementally better, they’re getting worse at an alarming rate,” Holmes said. “This is as bad the back-to-back Green and Patriots losses under Marc Trestman (in 2014). These are the types of losses where there should be consequences. I hope that there are some sort of consequences. But the problem is, too often the Bears don’t have those. And that’s where you get stuck. And that’s why things are bad. And that’s why a lot of people don’t have faith that they’re ever going to get better. Absolutely atrocious on all levels today.
“You didn’t think things were going to get worse, but here we are. This loss was an embarrassment of the highest level. It goes all the way through every single level of the Bears.”
