Despite having two weeks to prepare for Brett Hundley, the Chicago Bears lost to the Packers 23-16. Let’s see what we learned from the game.

When you search the synonyms for “awful”, this is what appears: disgusting, appalling, horrific, horrendous, repulsive, ghastly and depressing. These are all terms that you can use to talk about the Chicago Bears losing to the Green Bay Packers by a score of 23-16.

The Chicago Bears went into the game as 5.5 point favorites at home. Of course, they were playing competitively and the Packers had been awful without Aaron Rodgers at quarterback. Then, you factor in that the Bears were coming off of a bye, and you have yourself a “must win” if you are John Fox and the Chicago Bears.

As the week progressed, my confidence in the Bears winning this game was beginning to waver. I was worried that they may be too overconfident. Then, you factor in that coming into the game, Fox was 0-5 as the Bears’ head coach when they were favored to win a game.

Unfortunately, these nightmarish thoughts came to fruition on Sunday at Soldier Field. It seemed like the team did not show up, at all. They looked lost on both sides of the ball, which is usually only the case on offense.

Now, let’s see what we learned from the Chicago Bears brutal loss to the Green Bay Packers.
