Chicago Bears: Myths about the Mitch Trubisky, Matt Nagy and Ryan Pace triangle
Do the Chicago Bears now have a lover’s quarrel on their hands?
The Chicago Bears have three wins and zero losses. That is the most important thing that we fans need to understand. This write-up is going to be a long one, so grab some popcorn and get ready. I want to start with some questions that have been presented throughout multiple Bears social media communities.
Shout out to Joe Liotine. Some are questions, and some are statements. I figured to write on this because he is not the only one bringing this to the Chicago Bears community.
“Nagy wasn’t changing his playbook for Mitch’s style. Nagy likes a pocket quarterback who reads the defense from the pocket.”
The first statement isn’t exactly true. Matt Nagy came to the Chicago Bears with a plan to operate a shotgun offense that is a pass-first that sets up the run mentality. This season we have seen Matt Nagy get Mitch Trubisky under center and use multiple tight ends and their hybrid full back. The Bears lead the NFL in running plays called on first down. Nagy has revamped the offense to fit what he believed was a better style for Mitch Trubisky.
You could see the confidence in Trubisky when he was running plays from under center as opposed to having Trubisky in the shotgun. However, it has been clear from day one that Matt Nagy prefers a quarterback come to the line and read the defense and make changes needed to make each play successful.
Nick Foles did just that during his fourth-quarter play. Matt Nagy does indeed prefer a pocket-passing style quarterback. That is proven with Nick Foles, Tyler Bray, and the quarterbacks he has brought in for try-outs.
