Chicago Bears: These were the biggest disappointments from Week 7
Chicago Bears disappointing [member] No. 3: Matt Nagy… again
After Sunday’s loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, it’s not that deep to say Nagy’s leash is getting shorter and shorter.
It’s progress that he gave up play-calling to Lazor– allegedly– but it’s still Nagy’s offense. The “offensive guru” that the Chicago Bears were given is more so looking like someone that was part of a special offensive unit in Kansas City before being given the keys to Chicago.
Now, in Nagy’s defense, I’d say the Chiefs might have a better offensive roster; however, if you’re being called an offensive guru, the roster shouldn’t be what stops you.
Now, back to the Tampa Bay game.
For those with a mildly tamed eye for football, it was absolutely apparent that the Chicago Bears, at least at an offensive standpoint, had no answer for what Todd Bowles was dialing up on the other side.
Granted, Bowles is one of the league’s best, however, “offensive guru”. Remember? Now you see why I brought it up.
Whether it’s long route developments on a 5-man protection scheme or misusing Fields’ capabilities with the offensive game plan, Nagy is the root of the issue week after week.
When Nagy handed over play-calling, that worked — for a game. Then, the next game — or even the second half of that first game — people already thought Nagy was back to calling the plays.
Until Matt Nagy is no longer the head coach, everything will go through him giving everything the Chicago Bears do the “Nagy Effect“.
