John Fox Sets New Record in Bears' Loss

John Fox Sets New Record in Bears' Loss

Garoppolo made his start with the San Francisco 49ers against the Chicago Bears on Sunday, and he led his team to a 15-14 road victory. The Bears signed Connor Barth, who served as the team's kicker for the 2016 season and returned this year, but was cut after missing a game-tying field goal against Detroit in Week 11.

While San Francisco may be trending upward after their quarterback change, Chicago's season is spiraling out of control. And what does it say that Bellamy did as much during in an interview that included veteran cornerback Prince Amukamara and rookie back Tarik Cohen looming over Bellamy from atop locker-room seats and listening in?

Yet anyone on the Bears roster on Sunday took a back seat to Gould, as he was as good as his name once again in Chicago.

Gould was responsible for all 15 of the 49ers' points, hitting five field goals, including a 24-yarder with two seconds remaining.

If only for one day, Jimmy Garoppolo was a better quarterback than Tom Brady. The 49ers were down two and took control at their own 7-yard line, needing Garoppolo to continue playing well to win the game.

To his credit, Gould was very classy in his remarks about his former employer, even saying the Bears are "probably the greatest sports organization, greatest group of fans I've ever been a part of".

Chicago (3-9) lost its fifth straight game and dropped to 2-5 at home. "(It) makes it more fun going into next week with him".

All told, the Bears 147 total yards and one offensive touchdown. "When someone does do a ton of coverages and fronts, you can't give him every single rep against every single look".

The 49ers have no shot at making the playoffs this season, but understanding whether or not Garoppolo can be successful in scarlet and gold will go a long way in yet another rebuilding offseason.

Gould showed a lot of emotion after booting the game-winner to cap an impressive 14-play, 86-yard drive, as he appeared to yell toward the Bears' sideline. In fact, it's hard to imagine any scenario in which Fox coaches the team next week in Cincinnati - except one: it's the Bears.

Add it up - plus 's 61-yard punt return - and it should've been enough for a Bears victory.

"All of those guys, the skill positions all-around the group made some big plays today", Garoppolo said.

"Ryan has never reached out to me". "But I think we came out there, obviously, some things to improve on, we'll watch the tape and get better at that stuff". I would love to hear that the Bears were willing to give Fox the treatment the New York Giants are rumored to be considering for Ben McAdoo.
