Nubie would be a better coach for the Bears than Matt Nagy

Alright, this one is going to take more explaining than the last two. I am assuming not many of you know who “Nubie” actually is. I could not even find a photo to use, so we get to look at the man, the myth and the legend who wears the Bears visor like no one before him — Matt Nagy.

Nubie is the character played by Mathew McCurley in the movie ‘Little Giants.’ To help explain exactly who he is, Nubie is the child in the movie who creates the trick play called “The Annexation of Puerto Rico”. Now, do you recall who he is?

I am not one to bash children, but I cannot for the life of me believe this kid who has barely hit puberty would make a very good NFL head coach. That said, I do think he’d be better for this Bears team than Matt Nagy. Nagy is known for his trick plays and cool names like Santa’s Sleigh, Oompa Loompa and Freezer Left. The problem with plays like these is that they may work once but they hardly guarantee a victory.

Nubie created the play “The Annexation of Puerto Rico and well, he ran it by coaching legend John Madden — who appears to love the idea as they collaborate on it. See what I did there? Alright, now the key is when to use the play. This is something that Matt Nagy no longer seems to fully grasp as his little trickery plays seem to be called at the worst times and fall flat. Nubie does a much better job by convincing the actual head coach to use this play in an attempt to win the game.

What is very cool, ‘The Ringer’ actually breaks this play down in this YouTube video if you want to check it out in more detail. The greatest part is that when describing the play to John Madden, it sounds nothing like what actually happens when a fumblerooski is called to gain 99 yards in an attempt to win the game. That actually sounds like something Matt Nagy would call, but we know his team couldn’t execute it correctly despite it being illegal in the NFL anyway.
