Waking up on Monday morning after the Chicago Bears loss to the Washington Redskins was similar to waking up with a bad hangover.
Beyond losing the game on Sunday to the Redskins, the Bears lost three pivotal players on Sunday to injury. Quarterback Jay Cutler, linebacker Lance Briggs, and cornerback Charles Tillman all finished the game on the sideline for the Bears against the Redskins. Of the three, Cutler’s injury is believed to be the most severe.
On top of the injuries, the greater concern for the Bears after their game against the Redskins was the struggles on defense. Bears backup quarterback Josh McCown could do no wrong in replacing Cutler on Sunday, but even if the team had Cutler for the entire game against the Redskins, the defense was incapable of solving what the Redskins were doing on offense.
With that said, lets take a look at the week 7 report card for the Bears.
