The most unsurprising bit of news to come out of Matt Nagy’s press conference is that he still plans to call plays for the Chicago Bears in 2020. “I learned a lot last year. I feel rejuvenated and refreshed.” He said that he’s been going over his scheme from a year ago with his entire staff and they’ve honestly been accessing what worked and what didn’t.

“If we’re okay with what we did last year, then we’re in the wrong place, Nagy said. “As we go through this offseason, we need to figure out offensively what our identity is. There’s a sense of urgency for us, it needs to happen sooner than it did last year.” He also said he’s willing to adjust his scheme to better fit the talent on the team.

On quarterback Mitchell Trubisky, Nagy said that he needs to spend a lot of time on the film and “really hammer through what he’s looking at,” and when asked if he wants Trubisky to feel like his starting job is in jeopardy he said he wants everyone to feel that way.

While not having an official run-game coordinator, Nagy did say that offensive line coach Juan Castillo and tight ends coach Clancy Barone will be in charge of the run game and that offensive coordinator Bill Lazor will oversee them.

A few more nuggets from Nagy’s presser.
