The term "homefield advantage" didn't apply to the Bears at all in 2015.
They finished the regular season just 1-7 at home following Sunday's 24-20 loss to the Detroit Lions in the finale.
The Bears were 5-3 on the road, but just could never get things going at Soldier Field.
"That's really bad," Bears tackle Kyle Long said after the loss to the Lions. "There's good, bad and really bad, and that falls under the 'really bad' category.
"Luckily, it wasn't like we were blown out in every game at home. We had a lot of close games, a lot of very tight contests."
Long's right - six of the Bears' seven losses in Chicago were decided by one possession, with the average margin of defeat just 4.3 points.
The only blowout at Soldier Field came against the Arizona Cardinals in Week 2, a 48-23 shellacking against a Super Bowl contender in a game in which Jay Cutler left with an injury.
On the other hand, the Bears' only win by the lake was on a last-second field goal by Robbie Gould to beat the Oakland Raiders 22-20 in Week 4.
Bears cornerback Tracy Porter doesn't really care what city the Bears are playing in; he just wants to win.
"It's disappointing to lose, period," Porter said. "Home, away, it doesn't mean anything. Doesn't matter where you're playing. If you lose, it sucks."

Obviously fans can relate to the "it sucks" feeling, but the Bears insist they're going to turn things around.
"I know it's frustrating to go 1-7 here at Soldier Field," head coach John Fox said, "but we will get better."
Long echoed his coach's thoughts.
"I think, with this regime, they'll be able to add more pieces into place that they think are beneficial to this team," Long said. "And we'll be able to close that gap and turn those into wins."
