The Chicago Bears were unable to replicate the success they had in 2018 in 2019. After going 12-4 last season, the Bears finished with an 8-8 record this season and missed the postseason.

Most people that watched the Bears this season are placing the brunt of the blame on Mitchell Trubisky under center. The third-year quarterback noticeably regressed as he struggled to improve his game.

Despite the disappointing campaign in 2019, Trubisky has already been announced as the starter in 2020. However, that could be subject to change in the offseason.

Regardless of the moves that Chicago makes, they would love to get back to the playoffs in 2020. Without a doubt, playing in the NFC North can make that easier said than done.

Besides missing the playoffs, there were plenty of unforeseen aspects to Chicago’s season. What were the four biggest surprises for the Bears’ 2019 season?
