A Study of Stubbornness: Examining Matt Nagy’s role in the Chicago Bears’ offensive disaster

In his latest video, Robert S. takes a hard look at the ins and outs of Matt Nagy’s offense and the adjustments he’s made throughout the year.

To be completely honest, I didn’t expect last Sunday’s game to go as poorly as it did. The Bears’ backs were against the wall, their playoff hopes were on the line, and they still came out flat against a struggling Rams team, scoring only 7 points in yet another loss.

Talk about disappointing.

It didn’t help anything that throughout the game the Bears made almost every sort of mistake you could think of — wide receivers dropped passes, lineman botched blocks, Cordarrelle Patterson took his helmet off while he was still on the field... if you can think of it, the Bears probably did it on Sunday night. And while it’s become popular in Chicago to pin everything on the quarterback, it seems unfair to solely blame Trubisky for issues that are beyond what he can control — Nagy shares the blame for this offense’s failure, so this week I investigated just how much blame he deserves.

In my latest video, I decided that I would try to find the answers to three questions that seem to be on every Beard fan’s mind:

  1. What is Matt Nagy’s offense trying to do?
  2. Why isn’t it working in Chicago?
  3. And what, if anything, can be done to improve it this year?
