Chicago Bears: 3 Changes after the bye that could save the season
By Joseph Herff
The Chicago Bears must readjust the scheme
Frankly, I’m tired of Matt Nagy’s offense. Nagy’s 2019 offense seemed to die off at the start of 2020 as Nagy reverted to a new style of offense which enhanced the Bears’ abilities with outside-zone running, heavy under center action, and plenty of play action. As soon as Trubisky showed any sign of weakness, Nagy pulled the plug, but for the wrong reason.
Nagy pulled the plug so he could go back to his 2019 offense, but now with his quarterback that he so needed. He needed Foles to run the offense that he thought was perfect. It didn’t work out. The Bears’ run game depleted, the passing game increased the attempts, but the efficiency went down.
The Bears’ offense went from rushing around 130 yards every game in their new scheme to rushing for under 100 yards in every game since Foles became the starter in the Nagy scheme. They struggle to score points, move the football, and honestly give any sort of hope to this Bears’ team.
