Chicago Bears Continue To Frustrate Fans

Chicago Bears Continue To Frustrate Fans

By Ethan Carey, Sports Editor

After another loss in week 11 for the NFL season, the Chicago Bears have had nothing but a disappointing season up to this point, and a lot of fans are upset because of the expectations they have had since the beginning of the season.

With not only high expectations being let down by 3rd year quarterback, Mitch Trubisky, the Bears defense, and entire offence for that matter, has just been a whole season of frustration and nothing like they were last year for a reason that no one really knows.

“The bears have severely disappointed their fan base this year, as they were expected to be one of the top dogs in the NFC. Personally, I have given up on the team for this year because the play calling and performance on the field is sub-par (at best),” senior Michael Daratzis said.

Trubisky was a first round draft pick by the Bears and although he had more than a decent year last season, he looks like a completely different player this year and it has not been pretty.

“I’ve been saying it for the last three years and I’ll say it again; Mitch Trubisky is not the answer at quarterback for the Chicago Bears. Looking ahead, I hope the team drafts a quarterback in the 2020 NFL draft because the team will not win a championship with Trubisky under center. I think we’ve given him enough time to prove what he can do, and it clearly isn’t enough to energize the entire roster,” Daratzis said.

Along with quarterback problems, everyone in Chicago knows about the “double doink” to end the season last year and although the team tried to fix their kicking problems by signing Eddie Pinero in the off-season, that didn’t seem to solve anything considering the two field goals he missed in their last game ultimately being one of the biggest reasons the Bears lost.

“Eddy was once the hero but now is hated and that after all the bad kickers we have had, they should of stuck with Robbie Gould. I still have some faith left in Eddie but with the way he’s been performing, I don’t know how much longer that will last,” senior Themi Kastrinakis said.

The Bears are just not in a good place this season and really need to step up their game in order to secure a wildcard spot and a playoff birth, but if they keep continuing to play the way they have, that looks like something that would be the result of multiple prayers.

“The Bears really have a lot of things they need to do ASAP or it won’t be a pretty end of the season. I’m hoping that some trades either during the remainder of the season or even in the off-season will bring us back into the competition but as of right now, I have no hope in the Bears because they are playing nothing better than terrible football,” senior Adem Memidzan said.

With the final week in the regular season approaching rapidly, the Bears still have a lot of work to do and at this point in the season, every game is a must win if they want to have any chance of a playoff birth the year.

At this point in the season, Kastrinakis could only describe it in one way and it is likely that many other Bears fans might feel the same way.

“They have really just been letting down Chicago fans week in and week out,” Kastrinakis said.

The Bears’ next upcoming game is this Sunday, Nov 24, 2019 against the New York Giants and as all Bears fans know, this is one of the most important games of the season and could determine how the rest will go.
