Here we are Chicago Bears fans, the team and Matt Nagy may have hit rock bottom this season after they lost a late, fourth-quarter lead to the Baltimore Ravens. To make matters worse, the team didn’t lose to an MVP-level Lamar Jackson. Nope, Jackson was out with an illness and the Ravens had to count on their backup quarterback Tyler Huntley. Huntley is not some journeyman backup with plenty of experience. He was not some late-round draft pick that had a successful college career either.

Tyler Huntley is instead, an undrafted free agent who is only in his second NFL season and has never started an NFL game — until this past Sunday vs the Bears that is. Now, not only does Huntley have his first NFL start, but he finds himself undefeated as a starter. This coming after only throwing 16 regular season passes and only completing 50% of them.

The Chicago Bears defense let this kid march down the field with 1:20 left in the game and score a go-ahead touchdown with basically no time left on the clock. Even though the defense sacked Huntley six times and kept the Ravens to only 16 points, they could not come up with a stop when it mattered — mostly due to Kindle Vildor.

As bad as Vildor was, there’s plenty of blame to go around. Wide receivers were dropping balls, the play calling was bad during crucial times, headsets stopped working and even Cairo Santos missed a 40-yard field goal. This team lacks discipline and that usually has plenty to do with coaching. It’s those little, crucial details that lead to teams winning games, that and obviously talent — something this team lacks in certain areas.

Head Coach Matt Nagy seems to have lost many Bears players in the locker room

Needless to say, the one positive from this is that this year, with fans back in the stands, Matt Nagy cannot run and hide. The boo birds were out and so were the “fire Nagy” chants. Those chants have carried over into the rumor mill now too as it sounds like Matt Nagy has officially lost the locker room.

How long before he is let go? Will the new rule that allows coaches to be interviewed within the last two weeks of the regular season mean that Nagy becomes the first Bears coach to be fired before the season ends? Well, because I have written and will continue to write many articles reflecting just how bad Matt Nagy is as a coach, I wanted to write something with a little more fun. I have already covered how Matt Nagy should be fired and coaches who could replace him.

This time, I’m going to look at bad or very inexperienced coaches who would still be better head coaches for this Chicago Bears team than Matt Nagy.
