NFC Notes: 49ers, Bears, Lions, Rams



Former Bears HC John Fox tells NBC Sports Chicago that he believes the team is close to turning things around and wishes he could have stayed on to help them get there.

“It would’ve been nice to see it through,” Fox said. “That’s kind of a bitter pill but you sort things out and move forward.

“I do think it’s closer than people think. We inherited a mess … but I felt we were on the brink at the end. I think that [Halas Hall] building is definitely different; they feel it. I do think that it was a positive.”

“You wish some things would’ve happened differently obviously,” Fox added, “but there was a lot positive that happened.


  • The Detroit Lions announced Tuesday that they’ve hired Brian Picucci as an offensive assistant coach/quality control coach.
