Fox has to be trolling Bears fans. After a breakout game, he’s basically not being allowed to throw more than 10 yards downfield. Super conservative playcalling down 2 scores and nothing to play for

But don’t actually do that, win the lottery man that was fun... i'll always have a little what could have been feeling that year re: what happened with eddy curry. team was really damn good after the 0-9 start. ...
