The Chicago Bears rookie performance week 3

The Chicago Bears as a whole on offense sucked. Can we say sucked? This article won’t be a statistical breakdown like usual on how Justin Fields was sacked nine times and had an average of half a second before he was pressured on over 70% of his dropbacks. Wow is all we can say about Matt Nagy right now.

Maybe this will be a statistical argument. Here is a quote many need to read:

"“30 dropbacks in this game. 21 times you got five-man protection…” – Rex Ryan."

Matt Nagy is either a genius teacher or a bit over his head when it comes to game-planning and play-calling in the NFL. How did Justin Fields perform against the Browns in Week 3? I can’t even tell you because every time he took a drop back he was running sideways from the pass rush. You could have had Tom Brady or Michael Vick playing in that game, and similar results would have happened.

My eight-year-old twins could have randomly selected a game-plan for the week that would have been better against the Browns. Justin Fields did well by staying alive during that game. I will save the rest of my venting for another article, but that was terrible of Matt Nagy even to attempt what he attempted this past weekend.

Khyiris Tonga and Khalil Herbert had their flashes individually. Herbert ripped off another 30+ yard return. Again, he won’t likely ever become Cordarrelle Patterson, but he is at this point an NFL-caliber kick returner. Herbert needs to keep contributing on special teams and work his way into an offensive role if and when the Chicago Bears figure out what offense looks like in the NFL.

I will keep saying it, Khyiris Tonga looks the part of a baby Akeim Hicks. I have stressed how the Chicago Bears need to find a player like him as Hicks ages. Tonga added another pressure to his resume in his limited time on the field as the nose tackle.

Next. three winners from week three. dark

Maybe it is just my optimistic side, but the 25-year-old needs to keep grinding and doing what he is told on defense. Tonga’s role will likely become reduced once Eddie Goldman returns, but as a seventh-round pick, this mountain of a man could become something nice in the future.
