No one seemed interested in embracing the cold facts — this offense is in worse shape than it was a year ago. After seven games, nearly half the season, the Bears rank at or near the bottom in many crucial offensive statistics. They’re 32nd on third down, 32nd in sacks, 32nd in interceptions, 31st in the red zone, 30th in yardage, 29th in rushing, 29th in passer rating, 27th in time of possession, 26th in points and so on. It’s a cavalcade of offensive meltdowns.
The Bears cannot score from the 1-yard line, or at least they haven’t in 10 tries. They set an NFL record with nine sacks allowed in one half. Cutler tied another record by throwing four interceptions to the Redskins’ DeAngelo Hall.
They’re not just failing. They’re failing spectacularly. They’ve converted 5 of 53 third downs since halftime of the Green Bay game Sept. 27, the last time they played winning football against a decent opponent.
How exactly was this Ron Turner’s fault again?

The Bears fucking blow.
