With the first two weeks of the 2023 NFL season officially in the books, the league is starting to take form in terms of which teams will be competitive for the rest of the way and which ones will likely be a disappointment.
Heading into the 2023 campaign, the Chicago Bears were thought to be a team that might be on the verge of turning things around, with a potential superstar in the making with young quarterback Justin Fields leading the way under center in the Windy City.
Unfortunately, after two weeks, the Bears are starting to look more like the worst team in the league rather than a team ready to make a push for the NFL playoffs.
The Bears have lost consecutive games to start the season, with the Green Bay Packers wiping the floor with them in Week 1 (38-20) and a surprisingly good Tampa Bay Buccaneers team taking them down in Week 2 (27-17).
In the aftermath of these two losses, in which the team has shown no progress on either side of the football, defensive coordinator Alan Williams decided to resign on Wednesday, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

It appears that Williams is stepping away from the Bears with no intention of returning in order to take care of his health and family, which he said in a statement.
The stress of coaching in the NFL can take a toll on one’s health, and that appears to be precisely what happened with Williams here, as the Bears seem to be headed in the wrong direction once again this season.NEXT: Analyst Notes Chiefs-Bears Duel Will Be A Historical NFL Matchup
