Today I threw out the “playoff” tickets that the Bears send you with their season tickets. The Bears haven’t made the playoffs since they went to the NFC Championship and lost to the hated Slack in 2010.
I don’t know what to do with these Bears. They seem snake bitten. As Dan says, we’ve seen some improvement since that pathetic second season with Trestman, but we still aren’t a good football team. I was really optimistic going into that second season with Trestman since the offense was so good in the first one and then the wheels fell off and it was a disaster. Fox is a real coach and we have high quality assistants (for now, until they go off to be head coaches somewhere else).
The Bears don’t seem to have much of an identity. As Dan says that’s because we don’t have much talent, especially on defense. Plus about 3/4 of the team seemed to be hurt at some point this year.
