It was not a good afternoon for the Chicago Bears.
In what seemed to be a very winnable division game, the Bears made it difficult and fell to the struggling Aaron Rodgers-less Packers.
This video of John Fox challenging a play that gets overruled against them pretty much sums up what should be his last season as the team's head coach.

The Bears were sloppy, losing 23-16, and now it may officially cost Fox his job.
The message from within Halas Hall was that with all healthy personnel considered, this was a “must win” for John Fox. I hope they meant it. Fox’s team has been sloppy, disorganized, overmatched & poorly coached.— M@ Spiegel (@MattSpiegel670) November 12, 2017
While it may not happen today, he definitely won't be coaching beyond this season.
Fox should be scratching his head all the way home after today's showing, or lack thereof. His idiotic challenge was the highlight, but the Bears once again played a sloppy game. Eight penalties cost them 78 yards, and they were terrible on third down, going 4-for-14.
Fox has just 12 victories with the Chicago Bears since taking over as the head coach in 2015. The notion around the Bears community indicates they want him gone. They've had enough, and want a fresh start with the talent they have.
