And Fox's postgame assessment of the quarterback position will do little to soothe an irate fan base that is uniting in its demands for rookie Mitch Trubisky to take Glennon's starting job as soon as possible. "Like I said earlier, everybody had their hand in that". "The whole team made too many mistakes". The Bears failed on offense, on defense, and on special teams for the trifecta. "I don't know how many drops they had".
Rookies make mistakes, but the one Tarik Cohen made on a punt return Sunday was inexcusable. The injury is minor enough that he should be back, but with that uncertain Mike Smith's defense is going to have to prepare for two different quarterbacks.
"There's been no communication of (being benched)", Glennon said Sunday.
"No, there's been no communication of that, so there's no reason to worry".
"Ah, no", Fox said. "It's not a one-man game".
Lastly, it is unfortunately time to start considering coaching changes. Hope is harder to come by than a first down, a reality ownership can't ignore. Cohen, meanwhile, was routinely forced east and west on the perimeter with the Bucs linebackers stringing plays out and never allowing Cohen to reach the edge.
Dallas also went up against a very good Denver defense. On the replay, Sims was covered by three defenders and needed the throw to be ideal for him to even have a chance of making the play. That question will be answered next Sunday at Soldier Field.
Despite last week being the first full week of the 2017 NFL regular season, Week 2 still saw its fair share of debuts around the league. Trubisky recently played well in the preseason and was elevated to the backup behind Mike Glennon. Trubisky's accuracy and ability to hit receivers in stride will improve their efficiency.
"We have to get better as a football team", Fox said.
It Was Over When: McClain jumped an out pass and returned his interception 47 yards for his first National Football League touchdown. Glennon finished the game completing 31-of-45 passes for 301 yards, including one touchdown.
Tampa Bay's offense did its part by turning two of the takeaways into touchdowns - a 13-yard pass from Winston to wide receiver Mike Evans and a 1-yard run by Jacquizz Rodgers, who started for Doug Martin, serving the final three games of a substance-abuse suspension. Nobody should be confused about his performances, he is playing at the level most of us expected him to play at.
