Another year, another disappointing finish for the Bears. It’s hard to imagine this team started the season 5–1, only to finish 3–7 down the stretch. Sadly, disappointment is something Bears fans have grown all too familiar with over the last several years.

Since 2000, the Bears have finished with a winning season only six times. Over that span, we’ve watched the Packers transition from one Hall-of-Fame quarterback to the next, watched our own franchise’s all-time-leading-passer make the playoffs just once, and passed on not one, but two-star quarterbacks in the NFL draft.

Sure — 2006, 2010, and 2018 were great…
