Bad offense or good defense?

I was in attendance at Halas Hall on Tuesday taking in the Chicago Bears training camp practice along with WCG’s very own Jeff Berckes and Sam Householder, and hopefully you guys all followed along with our live Tweeting of the festivities. From everything we could gather, this may have been the worst performance from the offense this entire camp, from head coach Matt Nagy calling it a “shit show,” to wide receivers coach Mike Furrey saying “this is the most embarrassing day,” because the wide outs couldn’t even line up in a trips formation properly.

But how much of that had to do with the Chicago defense playing well?

Then again, perhaps it was a little bit of both.

Regardless the reason, after Jeff made the five and a half hour drive back to Iowa we jumped on a Zoom call for a late night edition of my T Formation Conversation podcast to talk through what we saw.

Here’s a basic outline of the show.

  • The overall training camp experience
  • Andy Dalton or Justin Fields, who was better?
  • Is there a wide receiver issue?
  • Jesse James and Jesper Horsted coming through
  • The defensive backs are picking things up
  • Khalil Mack
  • The offensive line
  • Coaching outbursts
