With a 3-0 record and the excitement that comes with a quarterback change, the Chicago Bears were heading into their week four game against the Indianapolis Colts with some momentum and energy surrounding the team.
That started to wane when their first drive ended with a blocked punt, and then a day’s worth of “we’ve seen this story before” moments kept chipping away at our Bears’ buzz all afternoon.
Head coach Matt Nagy had his handpicked veteran quarterback, Nick Foles, at the helm, but the Bears couldn’t find any consistency on offense, and the strides we saw Nagy make as a play caller during the first three weeks seemed to disappear.
Was this simply a matter of the Bears running into a damn good Colts’ defense?
Was this just a timing issue with Foles in his first start after getting limited reps with the team all training camp and through the early part of the 2020 season?
Was this Nagy and Foles working through some growing pains as playcaller and QB1?
Or is this just who Nagy is?
We’ve seen flashes of his offensive genius, but also some predictable tendencies that are alarming. I think one game with “his guy” at quarterback is too soon to panic as fans, but I can understand the anger that was flowing yesterday.
I threw up a poll on Twitter after the game asking where the blame lies for the 19 to 11 loss and the results were overwhelmingly anti-Nagy. With time still to vote, Nagy was sitting at 68.8% of the blame.
So with the first quarter of the 2020 season in the books, we want to know how you feel about the head coach with the Bears at 3-1.
Do you approve of the job being done by Matt Nagy?
