Bears stumbling in 2nd half

LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) — Chicago Bears coach Marc Trestman found no simple explanations Monday for why a team ranked second in scoring last year has dropped to the middle of the pack after five games and a 2-3 record.

While quarterback Jay Cutler received some blame for the Bears after suffering a second straight second-half collapse on offense Sunday in a 31-24 loss to the Carolina Panthers, Trestman and the players say they have enough mistakes for everyone to share equally in the scrutiny being brought on their offensive leader.

“You know, honestly we in the past have just been shooting ourselves in the foot, and it’s like everybody takes a turn at it,” tackle Michael Ola said Monday.
