I know it might be hard to believe but we are already at the halfway point of the NFL season. There was a time when we didn’t think the NFL season was even going to happen but here we are… halfway through the season. So now, its time to look back at the first eight games of the season and see exactly how teams in the NFL fared. More specifically, how the Chicago Bears fared through the first eight games of the season.
The Chicago Bears are 5-3 through the first half of the season, which is certainly better than a lot of other teams but they have gotten some luck along the way and they have lost some games that they should have won. So I have gone ahead and graded every single player on the Bears and their performance, including head coach Matt Nagy. Some players like Khalil Mack, Akiem Hicks and Allen Robinson fared really well and got a good letter grade from me, while others such as Mitch Trubisky, Ted Ginn, and members of the Bears offensive line did not.
I graded each player based on not just their performance through the first half of the season but also graded them based on their expectations coming into this season. So for example, Bears rookie WR Darnell Mooney had different expectations than Bears third year WR Anthony Miller. So even though they both have similar numbers, the expectation for Miller is much higher as a third year player compared to Mooney as a rookie. Hence why Miller received a poor grade. Check out all the other grades in the video above and let me know what you think!
