“Bad News Bears”
Your name is John Fox, and you have to ask what has happened to your career?
Successful in Carolina before parting ways.
Success in Denver before it all came apart.
Now in Chicago, it seems to be the worst of the worst, with no way to make it better.
Hard to imagine the career of a pretty good coach has gone so far off track.
Da Bears, not the Chicago Bears of Mike Ditka. Surely not the Monsters of the Midway era either..
You can find the Chicago Bears buried in the basement of the NFL standings, with a record of (2-8).
You coach a team that keeps losing all its top players, the few really good ones you have been given.
Alshon Jeffrey, the big money receiver, beset by injuries, now serving a 4-game drug suspension.
Kevin White, the other highly regarded receiver, never got on the field last year, with ankle injuries, and has been out more than in the lineup this year.
They’ve just lost all everything offensive tackle Klye Long with surgeries for two different injuries.
There is no running game, for ailments have taken top young back Jeremy Langford out of the lineup, and ownership took Matt Forte off the roster, rather than trying to re-sign him.
The center went down with a season ending injury early. The tight end, Zach Miller, went down with a season ending injury on Sunday.
2-of the 3-starting front on defense are out, the big blow being NT-Eddie Goldman.
Top linebacker Jerrell Freeman just go hit with a 4-game drug suspension,.and hot rookie Leonard Floyd had a scary neck injury this past weekend.
You jettisoned popular and trustworthy kicker Robbie Gould also in a money move as the season began.
And oh yeah, your quarterback is Jay Cutler, he of million dollar arm, ten-cent brain, with faulty leadership skills. And his backup, Brian Hoyer is gone for the year hurt also.
John Fox, his team staggering at (2-8) after last year’s horrid first season.
Don’t know what he did to deserve all this, but his careeer sure has gotten away from him.
And oh yes, winter weather is coming too.
Bad time to be a Bears fan. Worse time to be the coach of “Dah Bears”.
