Not many people in this world are enjoying life more than Chicago Bears kicker Robbie Gould, who just got paid and keeps getting more popular with the fans. Bear Report caught up with Gould right after Tuesday's training camp practice, and subscribers can listen to that exclusive audio feature right here.

John Crist: You and I have talked about the fact that you haven't connected on a 50-yard field goal yet. It's not that big of a deal, it's going to happen, and you've got plenty of leg strength. But when you finally get that 50-yarder, what's the first thing that's going to go through your head? Are you going to be happy? Are you going to be relieved? Or are you just going to be indifferent?

Robbie Gould: It's another kick. I get paid to make kicks, and that's a performance based business. I don't get paid to miss. Obviously, I've got to go out there from any distance and make kicks. I'm really not worried about the 50-plus yarders. I really haven't had many in my carer attempt-wise to go out there and actually make them, but they'll come. It's like anything else. You've just got to go out there, whatever distance they give you, you've got to go out there and make your kick. Especially in these games. In the National Football League, they're decided by three points or less more often than not.
