John Fox On First Win As Bears Coach: ‘Gritty’

(CBS) In reflecting on the first victory of his tenure in Chicago, Bears coach John Fox had a simple thought.

“It was a gritty win,” Fox said of Sunday’s 22-20 victory over the Raiders.

The embodiment of that analysis was Bears quarterback Jay Cutler, who threw two touchdown passes and led a game-winning drive in the final two minutes in his first game back from a hamstring injury. Cutler was slowed by the injury still, but he made the most of what he could do.

“Just the fact he was out there was pretty big,” Fox said. “To be out there in week two of a hamstring pull, it’s pretty remarkable in itself. i’ve liked his progress. It’s good to have him back, and he definitely helped our cause.”

The Bears moved to 1-3 with Sunday’s win. Listen to Fox’s full Monday morning interview with WBBM’s Josh Liss below.
