After his fumble led to a Minnesota Vikings win on Sunday, Chicago Bears fans are less than thrilled with wide receiver Ihmir Smith-Marsette.

Inside U.S Bank Stadium on Sunday, Chicago Bears wide receiver Ihmir Smith-Marsette had a unique opportunity to take on the Minnesota Vikings, the team that waived him less than two months ago.

Smith-Marsette was likely hoping to make some memories that involved handing his former team a loss this weekend. But unfortunately for him, he’s going to remember Sunday’s game for the wrong reasons.

Chicago Bears fans want former Minnesota Vikings WR Ihmir Smith-Marsette off the team

Following Smith-Marsette’s costly fumble that ultimately resulted in Minnesota leaving the field with a win on Sunday, Bears fans took to Twitter to express their frustrations about the young receiver.

Unsurprisingly, they weren’t very kind.

Smith-Marsette’s trip back to Minnesota definitely didn’t go as he had hoped and his fumble wasn’t the only significant mistake he made either.

A 52-yard touchdown run by Bears quarterback Justin Fields in the fourth quarter was called back thanks to an illegal block in the back by Smith-Marsette. Chicago wound up settling for a field goal as a result of the penalty.

It really was just a tremendously bad day for the former Vikings receiver. And the fact that his poor performance happened against his former team made it even worse.

Will Smith-Marsette’s mistakes result in him being let go by the Bears in the near future? It’s possible, but Chicago isn’t exactly swimming in wide receiver depth also, so the young pass-catcher getting another shot wouldn’t be surprising either.

Plenty of players around the NFL have games that are memorable for the wrong reasons. For Smith-Marsette, he’s probably just hoping that he gets an opportunity to prove to people that what he did on Sunday was not the norm.
