The Bears' John Fox Commits The Worst Successful Challenge Of All Time

13 November 2017

The Packers took advantage of a rookie QB today, after struggling against elite passers Drew Brees and Matthew Stafford the last 2 games.

The over-under is 42.5 points.

"Lambeau Bleep" screamed the headlines of both the Chicago Tribune and the Chicago Sun Times.

The Packers were coming off a short week following a division loss.

Keep your heads up, Bears fans... the future is bright. Two months later, on December 29th, that became official.

Yale: Two days after allowing Creighton to shoot almost 60 percent in a 92-76 loss, the Bulldogs weren't as generous with Wisconsin, which shot 51 percent, even if the result was more lopsided. Have the Packers done it again? His fourth quarter was, statistically, the best 15 minutes of quarterbacking the Packers had seen all season.

It's the circumstances that might make it toxic for Fox, who may very well have shown that he may not be the man to lead the Bears to the promise land that's eluded the team for the past 32 years. The win was not only significant in the standings for Green Bay, but also for Hundley's confidence, as he found a way to make plays in crunch time to pick up his first win as an National Football League starter.

The Bears toughest break came in the second quarter when a challenge backfired in the worst possible way.

While he'd hoped for a touchdown (and could have had the ball one yard from the end zone without challenging), Fox instead successfully challenged himself into a turnover.

The decision to challenge was still made, the play was ruled a touchback, and gone was a shot for seven points. So we're going to analyze that. "In hindsight, there are things we would do differently". I mean, we're only hurting ourselves. In the second half, Green Bay converted five of its eight third-down situations in which Hundley dropped back to pass. The Packers had Brett Hundley starting in place of the injured Aaron Rodgers, and the Bears were starting a rookie.

It falls on many people, but it starts with Fox.

The win allowed the Rams to maintain a one-game lead over the Seattle Seahawks in the NFC West.

"I trust Davante", Hundley said after the game.

Things didn't look much different early against the Bears.

"I've been doing this too long". "I've never anxious about my job security, and I won't start going forward".

Should he want that to be true, he'd best start winning.

The Bulldogs were again without senior captain Makai Mason, who missed all of previous year and has yet to get in a game this season, and 6-foot, 9-inch Jordan Brunch.

SANTA CLARA, Calif. -Rookie quarterback C.J. Beathard passed for 288 yards and two touchdowns, leading San Francisco to a victory over NY, its first win under first-year head coach Kyle Shanahan after a 0-9 start.
