3 strikes against Chicago Bears coaching staff in blow out loss to Bucs
The Chicago Bears were blown out in the worst loss that Matt Nagy has suffered as a head coach. With back-to-back losses in a tough fashion, the seat is getting hot for the third-year head coach.
It appeared that this week was the culmination of everything. Offense, defense, and special teams all had moments of unpreparedness that falls back on the coaching. In particular, these three moments have to make the ownership question whether Nagy should keep coaching the team.
3. Bilal Nichols ejection
This is a bad theme that is occurring under Matt Nagy. From Javon Wims to Anthony Miller and now Bilal Nichols you are seeing players lose it, and get ejected for nonsense. Chauncey Gardner-Johnson and Ryan Jensen are both known as instigators.
Still, Nagy made it clear after the Wims issue that the team signed out CGJ before the game, and Miller just did not listen. Nagy said after the game they had a similar conversation about Jensen in preparation for the Bucs. Everyone knew he was going to do something, and the Bears coached for it. For the second time, Nichols just did not listen.
Wims started it, but Miller and Nichols turning this into a habitual issue have to fall back on coaching. Other teams see this at times, but not so reoccurring and in a similar fashion.
