Bears' Cohen embarrasses 49ers on punt return TD

  • Bears quarterback Mitch Trubisky drops back to pass against the Detroit Lions on Nov. 19 at Soldier Field

The Chicago Bears took a 14-6 second quarter lead over the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday in electrifying fashion, thanks to Tarik Cohen running back what has to be the best punt return of the season.

The 49ers might not have scored a touchdown on Sunday, but the win over the Bears could turn out to be a turning point for this moribund franchise.

With the Bears retreating against the speedster, Garoppolo took advantage for short completions ahead of the Chicago defense.

Garoppolo got three days of practice work with the starters this week.

"I talked to Foxy, I talked to Jeff (Rodgers) today and said, 'I appreciate everything you guys did for me, '" Gould said after the game.

It wasn't until the 24-yard line that Cohen made a decision to cut up field, and at that point, almost the entire 49ers punt unit was caught behind Cohen.

Garoppolo's performance in two starts past year when Tom Brady was suspended was impressive and made him a highly sought after quarterback.

Trubisky, who likely will be in a new offense next season, finished the game 12-of-15 for just 102 yards, but there were bright spots.

Matt Lauer Will Not Receive a Payout From NBC
However, the New York Post indicated that it extended through the first half of 2019, leading to the $30 million figure. However, NBC is pushing back, saying that the contract is void because Lauer was sacked "with cause", a.k.a.

"Jimmy made a bunch of plays on that drive and I thought we ran the ball well, and I thought we blocked well. I can't even tell you what it was or what it is".

The loss drops Chicago to 3-9 on the season and will only increase the calls for John Fox to be let go as coach. Carlos Hyde is the team's leading rusher with 639 yards and four touchdowns while Marquise Goodwin is the leading receiver with 27 catches for 578 yards and a score. Fox essentially handed the 49ers the win.

Yes, it was only one game, but you don't have to be an National Football League general manager to recognize game-changing talent.

The 49ers have no shot at making the playoffs this season, but understanding whether or not Garoppolo can be successful in scarlet and gold will go a long way in yet another rebuilding offseason.

Gould said he hasn't talk to Pace since he was released.

Gould showed a lot of emotion after booting the game-winner to cap an impressive 14-play, 86-yard drive, as he appeared to yell toward the Bears' sideline. It will give him a chance to get much better. In fact, it's hard to imagine any scenario in which Fox coaches the team next week in Cincinnati - except one: it's the Bears.

"Ryan has never reached out to me".

No, while the team that played in Chicago might have been wearing the 49ers' jerseys and helmets, but they didn't look like the 49ers we've come to know over the last few years. "I don't expect him to", Gould said, adding that he didn't leave the Bears on bad terms.
