Chicago Bears head coach John Fox may be a salty dog but that doesn’t mean he’s a fan of the media’s sodium-filled diet.

Fox sniped at local reporters on Monday after being asked whether or not quarterback Brian Hoyer should have been looking to hit Alshon Jeffery on a key fourth down that went incomplete.

“I think when you’re out there playing quarterback it looks a little different than when you’re up in a press box having hot dogs,” Fox said, according to Zach Zaidman of Chicago Bears Radio Network.

When pressed further on the subject of Hoyer’s deficiencies reading defenses, Fox doubled down on the hot dog narrative.

“I’m not going to get into all this,” Fox said. “Had we had the coolness of the hot dog-laden press box, we might have gone there.”

Say what you want about Fox, but hot dog-laden is a good new phrase.
