Hard to say the Bears are miserable. They have some serious limitations, but they have a better record than the Vikings this year and have done pretty well now for a few games in a row after starting the season at 5-1.
And, I'd say they've accomplished that with less overall talent and bigger question marks than the Vikings. If you look at the offensive talent levels of the two teams (including their offensive lines, of which the Bears have had a real sh1tshow all season), I mean, it's not even close. The Vikings have much more, and yet overall haven't accomplished much more with that talent, while the Bears have managed to wring every last drop out of what they have and are even starting to look respectable now on offense. Defensively, the Bears have almost as many question marks in their secondary as the Vikings, and yet they've managed to play some solid defense. They haven't been subject to the extremes we've seen from the Vikings where some games they look motivated and consistent, and some games they look overmatched and disinterested.
And special teams, well, let's say I wasn't surprised when the Bear kicker came out and made his extra points and field goals.
I guess if I step back and objectively look at the two organizations right now, I'd say the Bears have gotten a lot more out of a lot less than the Vikings. I'm still more optimistic about the Vikings future as I think they've got a lot of structural advantages in terms of players and development potential heading into next year, but if you just look at outcomes this year, Nagy has gotten everything out of that roster.
