The toughest three-game stretch is behind them now, and the Bears are reeling.
In all, the Bears come away with a 1-2 record against three of the toughest teams the NFC has to offer and finish the grueling opening stretch with more questions than answers.
However, that's not to say that some players haven't performed at an elite level. In truth, four players have already started making the case for themselves in the Pro Bowl hunt, and another has a reasonable possibility of being voted in if things fall the right way. The first four are featured entirely based on their own merit while the fifth will need some help to get there.
Despite disappointing performances from all three phases of the game, there have been individual performers who have legitimate shots at making a Pro Bowl appearance, so without further adieu, let's identify five Chicago Bears with realistic Pro Bowl chances.
