The Chicago Bears coaching staff failed the players on Sunday
Dud #2: The Coaching Staff
Matt Nagy, Chuck Pagano, and Bill Lazor all could’ve called better games than what they did against Green Bay. Starting with the offense. The offense started well and at times looked okay throughout but they didn’t at all look like the same team from the past few weeks.
Montgomery and Robinson were both pretty much held in check against Green Bay. The way Robinson, in particular, was used and deployed was quite frustrating to watch. Robinson wasn’t even targeted until there 11 seconds left in the first half and still only had two targets late into the second half. The nice play of rookies, Cole Kmet and Darnell Mooney certainly didn’t help Robinson’s case but not utilizing your best player is a failing strategy every time.
Moving to the defensive side of the ball, it was more of the same from defensive coordinator Chuck Pagano. You can certainly argue losing Roquan Smith in the game was huge but Pagano did the defense no favors.
Having Danny Trevathan covering the Packers’ fastest player one on one with no help over the top is inexcusable. Pagano has been met with a lot of criticism in 2020 much of it deserved. If there is only one person from this regime to be let go I think Pagano has a strong case of being that person.
