The most frustrating part of watching Bears games this season comes when they're on defense, a 180 from every year in recorded history. More specifically, the weak spot is the very center of the defense.

When Henry Melton insisted on driving himself home in the wee hours of Monday morning after returning from Pittsburgh, coach Marc Trestman exchanged texts with the injured Bears defensive tackle like a parent checking on his child.

In terms of adversity, the Bears' 2013 season is akin to an airline losing your luggage on a trip to Hawaii. You can sulk away a day or two in a luxury resort, or break down and buy a few items at the gift shop and get on with paradise.
In other words,...
