Here are the Week 15 Bears power rankings from various sites around the web:

Site This Week/Last Week Analysis ESPN 17 (17) How bad are things going to be if Caleb Hanie and the Bears lose to Tarvaris Jackson and the Seahawks? Fox Sports 18 (17) There is no one on the planet that feels worse about the Bears’ loss than RB Marion Barber, but I am not sure why they were attempting to run outside the tackles to begin with. In all honesty, it was a better performance than I anticipated with third-string QB Caleb Hanie under center and star RB Matt Forte on the sidelines. CBS Sports 15 (15) No Jay Cutler. No Matt Forte. No playoffs. They are reeling right now. They just don’t do enough on offense. Pro Football Weekly 16 (17) Barber’s gaffes, Tebow’s magic hand Chicago third consecutive loss. WEEI.com 17 (16) Better luck next year Bears fans.  The injuries to Jay Cutler and Matt Forte are too immense to overcome. The two replacements have been responsible. Caleb Hanie and Marion Barber both have made very costly mistakes.  The Bears have lost three straight and they’ve all been against AFC West opponents. Pro Football Talk 18 (17) When Brian Urlacher said that Tim Tebow is a good running back, Urlacher should have added that Caleb Hanie is a piss-poor quarterback.
