Chicago Bears Disappointment No. 2: Matt Nagy

If you’re a frequent flyer of my “most disappointing…” articles, you could’ve figured Matt Nagy would’ve been in here.

This game showed what Matt Nagy is, and that’s a bad coach.

No matter how you dice it up, Matt Nagy isn’t good at being an NFL head coach that has his fingers in the offensive fishbowl. Nagy, if his ego allowed for it, would be a great “players’ coach”. However, once he starts getting involved with the scheme, it’s over.

Whether it’s poor time management, poor offensive scheme, poor play calling that still goes through him, or poor preparation, this guy constantly puts the Chicago Bears in a worse position than without him.

Sure, the Chicago Bears’ offense looked competent in the second half, but that’s after a first half that went as such:

"Drive No. 1: 3-play drive, 8 yards (PUNT) Drive No. 2: 3-play drive, 4 yards (PUNT) Drive No. 3:5-play drive, 30 yards (INT) Drive No. 4: 3-play drive, 7 yards (PUNT) Drive No. 5: 4-play drive, 12 yards (PUNT) Drive No. 6: 12-play drive, 52 yards (FG)"

As you can see, the fact that it was only 14-3 going into halftime was too much credit of the defense, not the offense. Sure, the defense had a couple lapses, but there was some good mixed into their bad for the first half. Offensively, that can’t really be said until the second half.

With those two parts of the Chicago Bears’ loss on Monday Night Football out of the way, what’s the third and final?
