The Chicago Bears go into Week 17 with a 5-10 record and a future that’s full of changes – or so we think.
This is the fourth year in the Matt Nagy test. At first, it is cute. It’s actually quite positive. Nagy walks in and breathes fresh air into the room, and Bears fans appreciate the energy and positivity.
But, as the years have passed, fans have come to realize just how false any headlines about Nagy being an “attacking genius” are.
In fact, Nagy was quite the opposite. In his fourth year, Nagy led the Bears to 26th in the NFL overall. If anything, he’s going backwards, and he’s certainly not a fan of the guy who wants to see rookie defender Justin Fields develop in the future.
While most thought the Chicago Bears would fire Matt Nagy, NFL insider Ian Rapoport warned fans not to hold their breath.
Ian Rapoport had some interesting details on Monday regarding Nagy and his future with the Bears. While Nagy is by assumption he will coach for the rest of the season, his future is now more undecided than ever.
“A firm and final decision has yet to be made,” said Rapoport.
NFL Insider Keeps Saying Something even more disturbing.
This is horrifying, sickening, and frankly, not surprising at all. This is a purely Bears thing, if we’re being honest.
George McCaskey and Ted Phillips are not soccer boys. They don’t know what they’re doing when they run a football team. That has been clarified a lot over the years. So for them to sit back and evaluate all four years, the high and low record when making decisions about Nagy is not surprising.
If anything, these two things will benefit Nagy because he’s just a nice guy. He’s good at “collaborating”. Nagy gives those two a warm, fuzzy feeling inside.
Why did they bring him back after 2020?
The hilarious part of this whole thing, and judging by all of Nagy’s four years, is that this season, the Bears’ offense is exactly where it ended last year. Chicago finished the 2020 season ranked 26th overall for offense – as we’ve established, exactly where they’re currently ranked.
If McCaskey and Phillips sell for mediocre prices, it might be worth considering giving Nagy another year, if the Rapoport report carries any weight.
Most people might still think that Nagy will layoffs no problem. However, this single report is not very relevant. Fans want the end. They want to be able to look ahead – and this certainly doesn’t work for them either.
