The Bears are not a great football team. They're not a terrible football team, either, but they're not great and therefore need every edge they can get in order to win games. One of those edges is supposed to come from coaching, but John Fox is not doing them any favors and cost the Bears six points on Sunday with a horrific challenge. Early in the game against the Packers, Benny Cunningham ripped off a long run that looked like, in real time, it was a touchdown. However, the referees ruled Cunningham out at the 1-yard line, saying he was out of bounds before he dove for the end zone. Fox saw the replay and decided to challenge the play. One problem: Cunningham actually lost the ball as he was diving for the pylon and lost it forward into the end zone.
John Fox executed a challenge that was so terrible it gave the ball to the other team
