Bears vs. Lions: Full Roster Report Card Grades for Chicago
Rick Osentoski-USA TODAY Sports

After starting 3-0, the Chicago Bears saved their worst for Detroit as they were bad in just about every area in a 40-32 loss.

It's easy to blame one player, but, the truth is, the Bears were terrible all the way around. Quarterback Jay Cutler had possibly the worst game in his career, but he wasn't given much help either. The Bears receivers dropped a few passes and didn't make plays on other balls that they should have.

Even if Cutler had played his best, the Bears would've had to win a shootout. Their defense helped make Reggie Bush look like Barry Sanders as it missed numerous tackles and left receivers open in the middle of the field from the opening drive on. Had Detroit quarterback Matthew Stafford not struggled with accuracy early on, it could've been even uglier than it was.

When a team is as awful all around as the Bears were from start to finish, much of the blame has to fall on the shoulders of the coach. The Bears clearly weren't prepared for the Lions on either side of the ball, and Marc Trestman needs to be held accountable.

This was the worst performance by a Bears team in a long time. The grades you'll see in the ensuing slides certainly reflect that.
