The Chicago Bears franchise is reeling after posting their 11th straight loss, going back to November of 2014. The last time the Bears won was on November 23, 2014 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Sunday, against the Seattle Seahawks, the Bears were in the game up until the second half as the score was 6-0. But Tyler Lockett brought the Seahawks back to life with a 105 yard 2nd half kickoff return for a touchdown. From there, Russell Wilson and Jimmy Graham took over; Wilson going 20-30 for 235 yards, and Graham caught seven passes for 83 yards and a touchdown.
The franchise has been trying to rid themselves of former GM Phil Emery’s draft picks ever since. The latest victim, Safety Brock Vereen, a 2014 4th round draft selection, was waived yesterday. Vereen, was one of 20 Phillip Emery draft picks. Of the three classes of drafts, two of the six in 2012 are still in football, three of the six draft picks in 2013 are still in football. Vereen was the first of eight 2014 picks to go.
Still, the team must prepare for their next opponent, the rejuvenated Oakland Raiders (2-1) who are coming off a 27-20 win road win over the Cleveland Browns. Plenty of great seats and affordable tickets are still available so be sure to get yours today and help cheer on your Chicago Bears to their first season win!
