2. The Chicago Bears likely saw enough to bring Mitch Trubisky back
In a similar situation as Nagy, Mitch Trubisky had probably already done enough in the minds of Pace, Phillips, etc. to be brought back on a one or two-year deal.
The way he responded to being benched, only to come back and lead the offense to a huge resurgence, was enough; even though the Bears’ offense lit up some of the more vulnerable defenses in the league, mind you.
The hilarity of it all is that Nagy must realize that he and Trubisky are not a great combination. It was all Bill Lazor’s play-calling that helped elevate Trubisky’s game and move the offense down the field, scoring more touchdowns than field goals, finally.
Nagy took back the reins, and the offense took a step back. But, it doesn’t matter. Chicago probably doesn’t have another option to replace Trubisky unless the front office does some serious contract shuffling and then offers a record-breaking contract to a guy like Dak Prescott.
The Bears are playoff-bound, which means all is right in the world — for now. Trubisky, Nagy and Pace will be back, even if the team falls flat on their face against the Saints this weekend.
