Chicago Bears: Reason 305 why Matt Nagy must be fired tomorrow
The Chicago Bears were embarrassed by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers by a score of 38-3. Justin Fields looked lost throughout most of the game behind another weak performance by the offensive line. Plenty of blame can be passed around on this one. Fields has to be better, but it does not help that when he was able to start sustaining drives, tight ends and receivers dropped key passes. This is not the first time for this.
The decision-making will come faster to Justin Fields as he gains more experience, and this was to be expected. If you look around the league, the rookie quarterbacks as a whole are struggling.
Mac Jones had a solid game today with over 300 yards passing and two touchdowns. However, he too has had his struggles with seven touchdowns and six interceptions. Trevor Lawrence has thrown seven touchdowns and eight interceptions. Trey Lance has barely played and has three touchdowns and one interception. Zach Wilson has four touchdowns and nine interceptions. As you can see, none are doing very well.
Matt Nagy can no longer be the head coach of the Chicago Bears
That said, I’m still hopeful that Justin Fields becomes the player I expected him to be. The scheme of this passing game by Matt Nagy is not working. However, that isn’t the biggest problem I see right now. Right now, the biggest problem is the lack of discipline on this team. Matt Nagy seems to be concerned about players showing up one minute late, but yet, he cannot keep his players from punching others in the facemask.
This is the third time over the last two years we have seen a player on this team throw a punch out of frustration. Bilal Nichols was the most recent player to do so and was ejected from the game. These are further signs and just another of a million reasons why Matt Nagy needs to be fired before taking the podium for his weekly press conference this week.
More signs of lack of discipline come in other areas as well. Allen Robinson has not looked the same this year. At times he makes some explosive-type moves, but more often than not Robinson is running at what looks to be half-speed out there. Beyond that, there have been plenty of key drops to go around from both the wide receivers and the tight ends. Khalil Herbert and Alex Bars looked to be the only players who wanted to play today.
If Matt Nagy cannot keep the team disciplined, then there is no point in him sticking around. That said, the players themselves should also feel ashamed and should want to hold themselves accountable. Too many of them seem disinterested in doing their jobs correctly. It’s time to hit the reset button and move on from Matt Nagy. Let’s face it, the time to move on was the end of last season.
Expect to hear reasons 306 through 999 over the next few weeks if Matt Nagy continues to stick around.
