The Chicago Bears had a great opportunity to come away from Week 11 with a victory.
Throughout the entire game, the Bears were up on the Detroit Lions, looking like the better team in this matchup.
When fans thought the team had done enough to put the game away, the Lions came storming back.
They overcame a 12-point deficit in the fourth quarter and ended up winning, 31-26.
This is not the outcome fans expected, especially given how the Bears played up to this point.
Martellus Bennett, a former Bears player, tweeted about this loss alongside fans.
He seems to believe this loss is a signal to the organization that a major change is necessary.
The owners are ok with losing a game but not the brand built on the past. The bears need an entire rebrand. Top to bottom and they need ownership that is going to transition the organization into the future.

Bennett said that this team “needs an entire rebrand.”
He wants there to be a complete shakeup throughout the organization, the only real way he sees this team proceeding.
This was Justin Fields’ first game back from injury after missing the Bears’ last four contests.
Fields had a serviceable stat line in his first week back, throwing for 169 yards and a touchdown, adding 104 yards on the ground.
Despite this performance, many fans and analysts still believe the Bears should look elsewhere at the position next year.
Bennett didn’t mention Fields specifically, but if he is truly recommending a full rebrand, Fields would not likely be a part of those plans.
He is still on his rookie deal, and if the Bears do not see him as their franchise quarterback of the future, moving on from him would not be a big deal from a financial standpoint.NEXT: The Bears Have Waived A Running Back
