Many think that the Bears coach Matt Nagy is the source of the Bear’s offensive problems. This past Sunday, Oct. 25, 2020, it became apparent that Nagy’s play-calling caused the team to experience many three and outs.
Nagy Speaks Out
Tuesday, Nagy made it clear that he would continue the play-calling. After such an embarrassing loss to the Rams, one would think that the conversation would be on the table.
We have a lot of confidence and I have a lot of confidence in Nick right now with where he’s at — Again, this is a process for us to work through, and it’s not just one person. It’s really not.
Bears Lose Tarik Cohen
Since the loss of Bears running back Tarik Cohen four weeks ago, the creativity of the offensive play-calling by Nagy has totally disappeared. We have to remember that Nagy comes from the Andy Reid football tree, and the Jet sweep running play is used in multiple formations.
Nagy used Tarik Cohen to run multiple plays from that one formation. Trubinski also played a vital role in being a mobile quarterback.
Nagy has lost two major components to his second coming of the Greatest Show on Turf offense. Is there a fix for the Bears offense?
Saints Duel Quarterbacks
Many would say that the Bears should take a page out of the Saints playbook using a two-quarterback system. Tyson Hill is the running, wildcat, passing, and receiving quarterback while Drew Brees is the pocket, down the field quarterback. Trubinski can be used in a like manner. Just a thought.
