While Chicago Bears fans have clamored to fire Matt Nagy, it has been hard to actually say that the owners will do it. As someone who would rather predict what will happen than scream about what I would do, it seemed clear after 2020 that Matt Nagy would not get fired. He made the playoffs in two out of three seasons, and the owners have seen the other side which includes years of failures.

However, in 2021 we are starting to see a justification for why Matt Nagy would get fired. In the team’s four losses, they have been embarrassed. The Packers loss was their closest game. Still with that being a division rival, and ending with Aaron Rodgers screaming that he owns the Bears, it has to hit ownership hard.

Matt Nagy is good against Minnesota, and Detroit but still has just one win against the Packers In seven tries. Then, from there came the lowest point in the Nagy era. This is pretty much undebatable, the team has never lost by more than 23 points, and they got rock for a 35 point loss.

What has to be more concerning is that Nagy has only had four losses by 20 points or more. One was a 23 point loss to the Kansas City Chiefs, an obvious low-point as Nagy lost to his mentor, and Patrick Mahomes beat Mitch Trubisky.

This beats that and joins two other 20 point losses this season. 35 points to the Bucs and 20 points to the Rams and Browns make the list of the three biggest blowouts in the Nagy era.

When the team is losing in overtime to the Saints, or just losing 17-7 to the Rams there is still reason to say that the team is fighting for their head coach. When they are getting rocked in their losses, you have to start questioning things.

Next. Matt Nagy must be fired. dark

Justin Fields had a horrible. Matt Nagy is not winning with in-game management even though he is not calling plays. Bilal Nichols was tossed with an undisciplined penalty. This is the type of loss that does start to make it realistic for Matt Nagy to be fired.
