Chicago Bears legend Mike Ditka has watched his former team through the first seven weeks of the season, and he doesn’t like what he sees. The Bears have lost three of their last four games, two of which were at home. Ditka believes a lack of leadership is the team’s biggest problem at the moment. Head coach Marc Trestman has a policy where the Bears rotate captains. Rather than appointing captains or having the team decided by a vote, Trestman gives several players an opportunity to lead the way. According to Ditka, he only does that because the Bears lack a true leader. “That’s because you don’t have (a captain),” Ditka told the Chicago Sun-Times on Tuesday. “If you had one, he’d be the captain, and that would be it. That’s all there is to it. When you see a leader, you don’t have to look too much further.
