Bears ST coordinator is ‘not concerned’ about Robbie Gould’s slump
After missing three field-goal attempts in the past two weeks, Chicago Bears kicker Robbie Gould is in a serious slump.
However, on Wednesday, special teams coordinator Jeff Rodgers said he’s not worried about his veteran placekicker’s poor performances as of late.
Gould’s recent misses have been particularly painful, as they’ve cost the Bears games that they desperately needed to stay alive in the playoff hunt. He missed two attempts in an overtime loss to the San Francisco 49ers in Week 13. Then, against the Washington Redskins last Sunday, he missed a 50-yard try that likely would have sent the game into overtime.

Gould is Chicago’s longest-tenured player, so the 11th-year pro has plenty of professional experience to help build himself back up.
