Coach Danny O’Shea would be a better coach for the Bears than Matt Nagy

Sticking with the same movie, head coach Danny O’Shea is played by actor Rick Moranis. Although the wrong sport in this photo, that is not why Danny O’Shea is considered a bad football coach. Instead, Danny O’Shea is a bad football coach because he knows very little about the sport.

You see, he is the younger brother to Kevin O’Shea. Kevin was always bigger, stronger and faster than Danny, and always outshined him as they were growing up. He didn’t even let him play football with him on his team, so Danny had to fake an injury and just watch. Well, Kevin O’Shea ends up making it as a star football player, while Danny is stuck as a widowed father of a young girl while owning a rundown gas station.

I am sure you have all seen the movie, but if not, I definitely recommend it and it makes for a solid family film with the kiddos too. Anyway, to make a long story short, Danny’s daughter, Becky “Icebox” O’Shea, who is one of the best players to try out for Kevin O’Shea’s Peewee football team the Cowboys, is not chosen by her uncle simply because she is a girl. Well, this does not sit well with Becky who decides to form her own team with the other Cowboys’ rejects.

Becky gets her dad, Danny O’Shea to coach the team, but Kevin is not okay with that and the rivals have a football game to decide which team stays and who will be the coach. As you can expect, the Cowboys are far superior, but as you learn in the movie, anything can happen one time.

Alright, to bring this back to Matt Nagy, the point here is that even Danny O’Shea, who has no business coaching any football team — not even a volunteer park district team — would make a better coach than Matt Nagy. This is simply because Danny O’Shea proves that he can make some serious adjustments at halftime to come back from a 21-0 lead to win the game. Matt Nagy does not seem to know what an in-game adjustment looks like.

Next. Only these three Bears were "winners" vs Ravens. dark

All Jokes Aside:

This was fun and I hope you got a kick out of it. I enjoyed writing it. Needless to say, it feels like anything and everything we are writing about the Bears is a satire piece now anyway. Are there any other “bad” football coaches you would add to this list? If the Bears lose to the Lions and Matt Nagy somehow keeps his job, I do not see how the fanbase can continue to support this organization. It’s that simple.
