"The Chicago Bears play in a lot of tight games," Jeff Dickerson writes for ESPN Chicago.
"They also find ways to lose most of those games, too.
"Missed field goals, dropped touchdown passes, late defensive breakdowns . . . the Bears have touched them all in the maddening John Fox era (12-30).
"Chicago now has three losses of six points or fewer in 2017.
"The Bears dropped a combined 12 games by six points or fewer in 2015 and '16 . . . Chicago is 3-13 in NFC North games under Fox."
"[I]nexplicably, Cohen wasn't on the field for the final drive of the game. Neither was Howard. And neither was tight end Adam Shaheen, who led the team with four catches for 41 yards and a touchdown Sunday," Adam Hoge writes for WGN-AM.
"What happened against the Lions is it became impossible for general manager Ryan Pace to find a justification for retaining John Fox and his staff beyond this season," Hub Arkush writes for Pro Football Weekly.
"If the assignments and responsibilities [of the two-minute drill] are so difficult as to preclude the participation of three critical players, something is either wrong with the offensive package, the person teaching it or both," Dan Bernstein writes for CBS Chicago.
"Coach John Fox did his part on that drive, too, by allowing critical time to bleed off the clock for no discernible reason and then declining to try to get Barth closer with eight seconds left. A lack of understanding of how to manage his sideline - both the clock and replay challenges - will be a notable memory of his tenure whenever it comes to an end, the irony being that those are rare things we can actually identify as something Fox does, and he's often bad at them."
The Tribune's Brad Biggs on The Score on Monday morning: "This is the consequence of waiting until Year 3 to make a move at quarterback."
Mike Mulligan on The Score on Monday morning: "It's Pace's responsibility."
Brian Hanley on The Score on Monday Morning: Gives Pace's job performance a "D."
Zach Zaidman on WBBM: "During the break, Cody Whitehair and Mitchell Trubisky working on snapping on the sideline." #Bears— Beachwood Reporter (@BeachwoodReport) November 19, 2017
