The Chicago Bears have been the victim of very bad calls and bad NFL rules these last few weeks. Today, John Fox challenged a play that involved Benny Cunningham diving towards the pylon in an effort to get the team’s first TD of the game.

Bears coach John Fox thought his challenge would result in a TD.

First of all, why the hell are you challenging that play? You would be on the one yard line anyways with a top 5 running back in the NFL. Second, this NFL rule is ridiculous. Fumbling in the end zone should not result in a touchback. Either way, instead of first and goal, the Packers took over on the Bears’ challenge and ended up winning by a touchdown.
Absolutely it makes no sense

This is classic Chicago Bears football. In a must win scenario, John Fox has all but sealed his fate as the head coach of this team.
