The overall ineptness of the offense had enough fault to go around, and the receivers take a share of it.
Amid a dismal 27-14 loss to the Miami Dolphins, the Bears were left in a complicated state of rage, uncertainty, frustration and nearly every other negative emotion.
The Bears are who we thought they were.
Brandon Marshall was damaged when he caught three touchdowns in the win at San Francisco. He was still damaged when he struggled catching one of six balls thrown to him in New York.
What was once an anomaly has now become a norm. A curious one, but perhaps one that is a telling sign of where Marc Trestman has taken the Bears offense in less than two seasons.
