Chicago Bears Disappointing Player No. 3: Second-half play-calling

Something that might not ever happen for a Chicago Bears offense is to have four quarters of offensive success. Now, I know defenses are paid to not let that happen and I get it, but at the same time, offenses are also paid to do better than defenses.

However, there seemed to be a massive slide between the offense in the first half compared to the second half.

"First Half: 3 plays, Punt; 3 plays, punt; 10 plays, TD; 16 plays, TD Bears: 14; Raiders: 3 Second Half: 3 plays, Punt; 3 plays, Punt; 5 plays, Punt; 10 plays, FG; 4 plays, FG Bears: 20; Raiders: 9"

As you can see, the drives were– outside the first two– long and ended with touchdowns.

Then, in the second half, there are three drives in a row with a punt; and after that, two drives end in a field goal.

Now, no one should be upset about field goals when you have the lead, but with a team that isn’t perfect, building a lead should be done so with touchdowns.

Obviously, this is a little nit-picky, but overall, the Chicago Bears played well in Las Vegas.

There were even ideas floating around that Nagy took over play-calling during the second half with how night-and-day of a difference it was between the first and second half.

Hey, it’s Twitter– what do you expect?
