Chicago Bears: Breakdown of recent Matt Nagy press conference

Thoughts on Chicago Bears head coach Matt Nagy after last press conference

The Chicago Bears are putting in a lot of work with a limited offseason. Coach Matt Nagy has been upfront and honest with this quarterback competition but has added some additional insight into how the football team is coming together. Matt Nagy started the press conference by giving due respect and thoughts and prayers to coach Ron Rivera. Football matters, but life is more important. Editor’s Note: Nagy is a class act whether you like his play-calling or not.

The defense seems to be giving issues to this Chicago Bears offense, but some takeaways need to be heard by everybody. If Darnell Mooney doesn’t become a household name in the future, it isn’t because of the lack of trying. Mooney’s film study was compared to Allen Robinson by coach Nagy. Mooney is speedy, and if he learns the playbook and how to use his speed correctly, he could be on the fast track to success soon.

Thoughts on the Chicago Bears quarterback competition

At times I feel that Nick Foles was brought in to compete with Mitch Trubisky solely. As if the Chicago Bears have given up on their second overall draft selection. At other times, like now, I feel like Foles was brought in to train the kid.

Coach Nagy shared how Foles is using his experiences to help Trubisky. Foles has been pushing Trubisky just as much as the coaching staff it appears. Genuinely unselfish are the words Nagy used when describing Foles. Nagy and the coaching staff plan to use the tape they have from each practice and evaluate mostly off of the tape.

A lot of tweets have shared how Trubisky is pulling ahead in the competition, but we won’t know if that is the case until they announce who starts. When asked about the day three draft picks, Nagy mentioned how they didn’t have any issues with any of them.

Nagy would share his thoughts on what the player could do or become but is still learning. To me, that is a bad sign. When Nagy bluntly shares that the draft picks in round five have zero issues and are not developmental prospects as he did with his seventh-round draft selections, the concern should be lower on the scale.
