Hurricane Harvey devastated the gulf coast and Houston. It inspired J.J. Watt to help the area, and he set out with a goal of $200,000. On Friday when his fundraising concluded, he had raised $37,097,248 from 209,428 donors, according to NFL.com.
At first, Watt simply tweeted a video where he talked about the storm, devastation, and his goal of $200,000. He started the campaign through YouCaring.
Fox was brought in because he was known for quick turnarounds: The Bears are 9-25 under him.
After that awful Trestman era, Fox was supposed to bring stability, competence and discipline that would shore up the ugly mistakes, miscues, penalties and general lack of preparedness that was demonstrated so often in 2014.
The Bears had four first-half turnovers and three first-half third down defensive penalties on Sunday.
And, perhaps most importantly, the blowouts were finally going to stop. Even if the roster was talent deficient, Fox was supposed to get the most out of his players and scheme to put them in a position to succeed, play in closer games and not get blown out.
But the Bears lost 29-7 in a game that was 29-0 until there was less than two minutes left.
So all of the supposed strengths of John Fox, all of the things he was supposed to do well, haven’t come to fruition at this point.
So I ask again: What exactly is John Fox bringing to the table? What is he giving the Bears that makes winless Septembers (0-8 under Fox in the first month) and Steve Smith Sr Jersey blow out week two games (outscored 106-44 in week two under Fox) and nearly two Bud Dupree Youth Jersey shutouts in 34 games is ridiculous.
The Bears were never shut out from 2003-2014, or 1990-1999. This could be the team’s second shutout in the Fox era.
