The Chicago Bears must test their offensive identity versus the Packers

Matt Nagy does not have to abandon using his Andy Reid west coast offense. However, he has to emphasize schemes and plays that play to his players’ strengths. They should also make it clear to Trubisky that they intend to draft a quarterback in the first or second round. This needs to be made clear as Trubisky should not be blindsided by this move.

As we know Mike Glennon was blindsided when the Bears drafted Trubisky and Glennon’s career has made steep descent since that all happened. Of course, Mike Glennon just started and played fairly well versus the Bears today.

Shifting to the present, as things stand now the Bears have a genuine chance to be a dangerous playoff team if they do make it to the playoffs. Even Chris Simms agrees with this. The Bears can realistically expect to score points if they keep going along with their current offensive identity.

That identity is now, establish the run and stick with it, use play-action off the run and often put Trubisky into motion. It is realistic to expect them to continue to score in the 30-point range give or take if they stick with this formula in the playoffs.

It would make them quite the dangerous playoff team if they could continue their current scoring binge and also have their defense get back to the high level they were playing at before losing their first matchup with the Vikings.
