1. Chicago Bears were shut out in the second half

Matt Nagy talked post-game about what he said at halftime of a 35-3 game. He said that he talked to the team about playing with pride, and playing for themselves, and not letting that awful half bleed into the next half or game.

He spoke pridefully of the defense that had multiple big stops including a goal-line stand. Then he brushed over the offense. That is because while the defense showed up, they were facing an offense that was in end the game mode. Even then, Nichols got tossed.

The offense actually was worse in the second half. Matt Nagy boasted about the pride his team displayed in the second half of a blowout, but they lost that second half 3-0, meaning the deficit only got worse from that point.

The offense was playing soft, and while the defense kept attacking, it was not quite as fierce as the first half. By that point, Fields was pressing and the offense had not shot, though.

Next. Matt Nagy must be fired. dark

The team has really never quit on Matt Nagy and that has been the biggest thing he had going for him. Seeing Fields say the staff put him in a bad spot, seeing Nichols commit the same issues as the past, and seeing Nagy says the second half was better when they lost that half to are signs that the staff is not going to make it past this season.
