Super Bowl 50 is going to be as painful to watch for John Fox as watching “Good Luck Chuck” is for every human being ever.
If you’ve seen the movie “Good Luck Chuck” then you probably know what I’m talking about. If you haven’t then don’t worry, you’re not missing anything more than Dane Cook spiraling out of comedic relativity.
I’ll keep this short: “Good Luck Chuck” is about a dude named Chuck (Dane Cook) that, after realizing he’s the most wanted sex object on the planet, sleeps with every chick on said planet.
But, of course, he can never find love. Instead, Chuck turns every woman he sleeps with into an overnight, mail-order bride ripe for a ring.
Thus, sleeping with him becomes luck and girls begin using him to find their soulmates.
It’s super corny. Almost as corny as listening to a Dane Cook standup routine in 2016.
IMDb gave it a 5.6 out of 10 rating. That’s as many games as John Fox won with the Bears this season.
But with the Super Bowl 50 participants now locked and loaded, it’s clear to see the similarities between Chuck Logan and the former Denver Broncos and Carolina Panthers head coach, John Fox.
Note, this is not a love story between two people. Rather, between a team and a coach. And even if some teams don’t realize it yet, using John Fox to find true love might be the key to saving the Monsters of the Midway.
John Fox coached the Carolina Panthers from 2002-2010 where he accumulated a .507 winning percentage and took the Panthers to Super Bowl in 2003. They broke up and Ron Rivera began dating the team.
Rivera has won the last three NFC South titles, found the NFL’s next great QB in Cam Newton and are favorites to win Super Bowl 50.
After leaving Carolina, Fox found a new fling in Denver, CO. In his first season he coached Tim Tebow to an epic playoff win over the Pittsburgh Steelers. The very next season, he plucked future Hall of Famer Peyton Manning from Indianapolis and the Broncos found themselves playing for Super Bowl 48.
A season and a half later Fox found himself looking for other employment. However, his replacement Gary Kubiak, in only his first season, finds himself in the Super Bowl.
It seems that whatever John Fox touches has success, but he can’t quite find true love.
He knows it’s there. However, post-breakup life for his exes has been nothing but smooth sailing. As current head coach of the Chicago Bears, it’s safe to say that success is ahead under John Fox. But they’re going to hit pay dirt the moment they find his replacement.
I mean, that’s how the movie played out. Right, Dane?
