Jones can atone for the fumble by learning to carry the ball using the proper arm. It's amzing to me that anybody can play as long as the pros have played and not learn the basics. At every level of football defenders will swipe and try to jar the ball loose, especially if a player makes it easy by holding the ball on the pursuit side of their body. Protecting the football should be second nature for every skill position player.

That being said, he should learn from it and move on. The loss was a team loss. Jones error was one of many errors throughout the game.

Not much he could do to stop 54, the Bears are the best in the league at stripping balls.

He could have held the ball in his other arm. Don't you know anything about football? You may be a Bears fan, but you're obviously not a football fan. Try learning the game. Then you might have something useful to say.

I wouldnt be too hard on Jones, he probably froze when he saw Urlacher ready to pop him one.

Yeah. Jones probably wasn't the first and won't be the last.
