Although, Dick Jauron said he isn't worried about emotional let done the mounting losses are definitely a concern.
"It doesn't get any easier week to week but luckily in our business you don't have time to feel sorry for yourself or worry about anything except the next opponent so when they come back Wednesday, they have to get right into it," Jauron said.
The Bears didn't lose consecutive games all last season and that can be attributed to the defense. However, this year the unit has struggled with injuries and poor play. A run defense that ranked second in 2001 is now among the bottom of the league.
Some of the blame can be put toward the fact Ted Washington has been out the majority of the season, but other players haven't been able to compensate for his loss.
"You obviously miss a Pro Bowl caliber player (Ted), but that's not the sole reason, it can't be the sole reason," Jauron said.
Brian Urlacher is now being attacked head on because there is nothing to prevent teams from running up the middle.
The Vikings played the Bears with Washington in the lineup and still ran for 136 yards in Week One.
With Daunte Culpepper struggling with a league high 12 interceptions Minnesota will likely attack Chicago via the ground game.
The question is can the defense make any adjustments to stop the Vikings offensive scheme? Something will have to change in order for that to happen because the only the defense has stopped thus far is the team from winning.
