Fans have been hashtagging their thoughts about Matt Nagy on social media all day after that embarrassing loss to the Cleveland Browns. There are petitions for the team to axe Nagy floating around the interwebs, and I’m sure there’s a fire-nagy-dot-com website out there somewhere, but the Chicago Bears don’t care.
Fans made a lot of noise about firing Nagy, general manager Ryan Pace, and team president Ted Phillips after last year’s stinkfest of a season, and the McCaskey family kept the entire group together to collaborate on 2021.
They lucked into Justin Fields in the NFL Draft, which bought the Pace/Nagy regime some time, but today’s mess of a game plan was just more of the same old stubbornness we’ve seen since 2019.
I picked the Bears to lose to the Browns, so the L didn’t surprise me, but that inept game plan is inexcusable. Nothing worked, but that wasn't the frustrating part, the frustrating part was Nagy’s inability to deviate from his horrendous plan. After telling us all week how he’d tailor the O to his rookie’s skill set, he either couldn’t do it or he simply didn’t want to.
Can the McCaskey family really risk the gift of a quarterback re-set for the franchise by keeping the status-quo?
I can’t see the Bears ever firing a head coach or general manager during the season, but since Nagy and Pace convinced Chairman George McCaskey that they were the right duo to get the franchise back on track, then they should be should sprung together if a move is made.
Is it time for the Chicago Bears to clean house?
