Chicago Bears: Last padded training camp practice press conference
The Nagy way of doing things.
I admire that Matt Nagy is sticking to his guns on not changing his offense because he believes in it that much. It takes a certain type of person to have that much confidence in what they are building. Matt Nagy, from the day he started to feel comfortable, decided to change the team and make it his own as every head coach in the NFL should. Nagy’s issue is after one season; he decided to make unnecessary changes to the Chicago Bears.
Nagy traded away pro bowl running back Jordan Howard to bring in his version of Kareem Hunt in David Montgomery. Nagy then brought in a large free-agent haul that failed to stay healthy and consistent.
Nagy also failed to play his key players in reason and run an offense built around the running game. Matt Nagy was a young head coach who might have been a bit over his head, but he has shown determination and motivation. This Chicago Bears team will either pass the test or fall on its face this season.
While looking at other coaches around the NFL, I noticed they all are treating this odd training camp much differently from Matt Nagy. While other teams have had normal team scrimmages that include full tackling and running started vs. starters, Nagy has done things differently.
Suppose Matt Nagy found that identity in this offense, watch out. Ryan Nall feels the team will not get away from running the ball this year. So maybe with the tight end room being revamped, coach Nagy will have something greater for us.
