Chicago Bears: Matt Nagy continues to show incompetence
By Joseph Herff
The game against the Buffalo Bills truly showed how much Matt Nagy holds back the Chicago Bears. The Bears got absolutely handled by the Bills and their former quarterback Mitch Trubisky who threw for over 200 yards in a single half.
I get it. It’s just a preseason game. However, everything looks exactly the same as the past two years for the Bears’ offense. We are seeing the same concepts, play calls, and sloppy play. The fact that Nagy couldn’t generate any sort of rhythm in a preseason football game is pathetic.

People can blame the offensive line or say how they were without Allen Robinson. That isn’t an excuse for the Bills though as the Bills played without their top three wide receivers in Stefon Diggs, Cole Beasley, and Emmanuel Sanders. Additionally, Josh Allen did not play.
I’ve been clamoring for the Bears to move on from Nagy since the 2019 season. Last season, I wrote how he has failed the Bears and Trubisky in general. It was even featured on Bleacher Report following the 2020 season. Everyone is starting to see that now and will continue to see it this season with how he will mishandle the development of Justin Fields.
The sad thing is, Fields may save his job. Nagy can use the excuse that their offense was lacking because of a rookie quarterback if it does badly. If it does well, he takes credit although essentially, Fields will make it look better. Regardless, he’s been incompetent for a multitude of reasons.
