John Fox and the Chicago Bears dropped yet another division game to close out his career in Chicago

John Fox is going to get fired at any point now. That is no surprise. It showed in the spirit that his team showed when potentially playing to make one last case for him to stay.

The Minnesota Vikings are good, but the Chicago Bears came out absolutely flat in this game. Their only touchdown was a return. Mitchell Trubisky averaged 4.9 yards per attempt. The Bears rushed for 30 yards as a team. It was an awful performance.

It also was not a surprise to see a John Fox-led team get dismantled by a division rival. When you coach a team, you play to beat your division. You draft to beat your division. John Fox failed at that. This season he is 0-6 against his division. Is that bad?

Worse, he is 3-15 as a Bears head coach against his division rivals. At least he went 4-0 against the AFC north this year, right?

The morale of this story is that it is officially over. Coming from a writer who came into the season thinking John Fox deserved the benefit of the doubt and a new year to prove himself, I am very firm in admitting I was wrong. Mike Glennon started the eye opening experience. It took until the Packers game until I finally realized how much of a lost cause he was.

Now, the team can get new life. This cloud hanging over the head is gone. Now, it is on the Bears to prove that they learned from history and do not repeat it.
