The Chicago Bears are done with training camp.
The Chicago Bears press conference started with a hard interruption from Chicago Tribunes Bradd Biggs, wondering if the Bears had had enough time to evaluate who made the 53-man roster. Cuts will likely begin before September 5ths deadline.
Nagy feels that the staff have enough tape, even with a shortened training camp, to know who will be on the roster. The main focus for the Chicago Bears has been the quarterback competition, but the team still needs to have the best players on the roster.
Matt Nagy stated that he felt this last big practice was the best one they have had all camp. Anthony Miller was the next topic. What shocked me is that coach Nagy stated that Miller had the best training camp among many players even after starting slow.
If that is true, this could be good news because the Bears desperately need another playmaker to step up besides Allen Robinson. Both players were drafted in the second round of their respective drafts, so it is not hard to believe that Miller could become a dangerous weapon like Robinson.
The plan seems to have come together as many Bear Googles team members have written about. It was never about bringing in a player like Cam Netwon to be handed the job and watch the 2017 second overall pick fight for his job.
The Chicago Bears plan was always to make the quarterback room better as a whole. What is intriguing is how different the three quarterbacks are. Mitch Trubisky is a 6’2 scrambling quarterback with accuracy issues. Nick Foles is a tall pocket passer with the ability only to run specific offenses to the max.
