How big was Ryan Pace’s role in the Bears-Rams disaster?

It’s another episode of the Rule of 3 Podcast, where Danny Meehan subs out for PFF’s Brad Spielberger along with Brandon Robinson and myself to break down Monday Night’s Chicago Bears loss to the Los Angeles Rams.

There’s no getting around it — this game was one where you “burn the tape” afterwards. So where does that leave a film-based podcast? We took a more high-level look at the Bears’ loss in this one as we tried to piece apart which Bears’ issues were the fault of Matt Nagy and which issues were the fault of Ryan Pace. Throughout the show we asked the following questions...

  • Just how good is this roster? Should Nagy be getting more out of these players?
  • What, if anything, is Nagy schematically doing wrong?
  • Are there any potential solutions to improving the Bears’ scheme?
  • How much should the Bears be winning based on their spending & investment?
  • Why are Rashaad Coward, Sam Mustipher, and Tedd Ginn playing important roles on the team?
  • And much, much more...

Check out the show below and let us know what you think!

Who do you think is more to blame for the current state of the Bears?
