Dave Toub addresses Packers’ touchdown off fake field goal

SHARE Dave Toub addresses Packers’ touchdown off fake field goal

Although it was the first time he’s addressed the media since the last game, Bears special teams coordinator Dave Toub did all he could to forget about the key first touchdown in a 23-10 loss to the Green Bay Packers.

“That was a long time ago,” Toub said. “Yeah it was a great, good play. It was a good call — the timing of it. They executed it well.

“What else can I say?”

“It was a good call by them and they executed the play well.”

Asked if they had a block on the play, Toub said they did.

“In that situation you have a block called and we’d do the same thing again,” Toub said. “What we’re going to do better next time — and it really was my fault — we’re going to make sure that if they do run a fake that we’re dialed in for the fake and how to stop it no matter what we have called. We’ve got to be able to stop that.”

Toub said the fake by Packers special teams coach Shawn Slocum was a “gutsy call.”

“We just didn’t execute against the fake as well as we’d like. We’ve worked on it since then,” Toub said. “We just weren’t dialed into the fake in that situation. Our mindset was to go after it.
