Cubs News: Eddie Jackson calls out refs after loss: 'Some of these calls were BS'

by - Senior Editor -

The Chicago Bears fell to 3-7 on the season after a heartbreaking 31-30 loss to the Detroit Lions on Sunday.

However, there were a few controversial calls that hurt the Bears' chances during the contest.

Bears rookie linebacker Jack Sanborn had a crucial interception in the fourth quarter, but it was wiped out after a questionable penalty by cornerback Jaylon Johnson.

Bears captain Eddie Jackson is sick of how the calls have been going late in games against his team.

“We already know how the calls go,” Bears safety Eddie Jackson said. “We can’t do nothing about that. We got to stay disciplined and do our job. I feel like some of the calls were kind of BS. But in the end, we got to leave no doubt. We got to come in, do what we have to do, put ourselves in those types of situations, especially with a 14-point lead.

Bears coach Matt Eberflus declined to comment on the controversial play likely so he wouldn't get fined.

Jackson is frustrated that the Bears' defense is not getting the job done, as the offense has been very productive of late.

"We can’t keep shooting ourselves in the foot," Jackson said. "I'm tired of getting up here and saying the same thing every week. It's becoming repetitive.

"I'm just tired of sounding like a broken record, week in and week out. We got to do our jobs. We got to be better on defense."
