Matt Nagy’s job as Chicago Bears head coach would depend on Jameis Winston

Now, this is sort of a win-win. If Winston absolutely balls out, this is a win for the Bears. They likely are a playoff-caliber team with a fun gunslinger quarterback who becomes the first player in franchise history to throw for over 4,000 yards. How unbelievable would that be?

On the other hand, Winston could throw a ton of interceptions and essentially make the Bears be bad. Why is this good? The Bears could then get themselves a high draft pick and then start a rebuild with a head coach who can hand-pick his next quarterback in the next draft.

Another sort of side-note to this is that Winston brings a refreshing style of play to this Bears’ offense. Bears’ fans are tired of seeing Trubisky making short throws constantly and never taking shots. Well Bears’ fans, buckle up because we are getting the opposite side of the spectrum in Jameis Winston who threw the ball nearly 40 times a game in 2019 and averaged over 13 yards per completion.

Winston may not be the safest pick or even the smartest, but he is affordable, and like it or not, he is fun. It will be fun to watch him sling it all over the field and not be afraid to throw it deep to Darnell Mooney about 10 times a game.
