John Fox approval rating

Do you approve of the job being done by Bears’ head coach John Fox so far this year?

The Chicago Bears are a quarter of the way into their 2017 season, so this is a good time to reflect on the job being done by the head coach and general manager.

First up, head coach John Fox.

The Bears are 1-3, with two bad losses sprinkled around a game they could have won but didn’t, and a game they someone found a way to win against a much better team. I’d like to say that inconsistency has been a theme of the John Fox era, but that would’t be accurate. Fox is 10-26 as head coach of the Bears, and during that time his teams have only won consecutive games twice. Both of those instances occurred in his first year with the Bears. The longest losing streak from his Bears’ teams has been six, and only once during his time in Chicago did the team not stack a loss atop of a loss.

In searching for a positive about Fox, I have two three things.

One, he hasn’t lost the locker room, so I don’t think he’s reached Marc Trestman levels of bad. Yet.

Two, he’s 1-0 in challenges this season! Yay.

And three, if the reports are tru, he finally named Mitchell Trubisky the starting quarterback.
