The Ugly

As bad as the offensive production was against the Browns, the play calling by head coach Matt Nagy was much worse. After seeing how Fields was figuratively put in shackles by the play selection, many fans were calling for Nagy’s head on a stick following the game. Many felt that with Fields under center, the offense would go up a notch, but it ended up going way down.

It appears that Nagy didn’t let Fields use his speed and athleticism outside of the pocket at all. Instead, Fields was held in the pocket behind an offensive line that couldn’t hold water if they even had a bucket.

Seeing just how much of a struggle it was for the offensive front to contain the Browns’ pass rush, many thought that Nagy would have used more double teams with tight ends and running backs on the edge rushers. Or, simply spread the offense out more to keep from having eight defenders in the box. Anything to help his rookie quarterback in his first career NFL start.

Maybe Fields should have done his best Willie Beaman impression from the movie Any Given Sunday, and just called his own plays in the huddle.

Now, the Bears have a record of 1-2 heading into Week 4, and possibly more questions about the offense than they did before. This offensive output had to be one of the worst in NFL history. If things keep going in this direction for Nagy and the Chicago Bears, then this loss could very well mark the beginning of the end for the head coach, and as well for general manager Ryan Pace.
