Bears coach John Fox is in the early lead for "Best Quote of the Combine"

New, comments

This was quite a doozy from the head football man in Chicago.

Chicago Bears head coach John Fox has been known to drop some rather strange references and comments in press conferences before, but today's comment might take the cake.

In his press conference at the 2016 NFL Scouting Combine on Wednesday, Fox was asked a question about players' intangibles. Here was his response:

I think he was referring to a player's heart and desire, but one can never truly be sure with Fox. Maybe he really values the size of his players' left pectoral muscles or how much capacity an athlete has in his left lung.

We may never know for sure, but give us your best guess at what Fox's statement really means in the comments below, and stay tuned for more ridiculous quotes and comments from the Combine all week long.
