The Bears Loss to the Eagles is Just Fantastic
An embarrassing loss could benefit the Bears in the long term.
The Bears 22-14 loss to the Eagles was a joke from the start. Mitchell Trubisky looked mediocre again, Adam Shaheen proved he shouldn’t have been on the field during the last play, Matt Nagy continued to use Tarik Cohen in the backfield, and the defense missed Akiem Hicks so badly.
There were very few positives in this game. The Bears offense didn’t score in the first half, and they had less than ten yards of total offense. The only shining star for this team was David Montgomery, who punched in two rushing touchdowns.
In the second half, the defense couldn’t stop the Eagles on third down. Every critical play ended up in Philadelphia’s favor. When they absolutely needed a stop, the Bears couldn’t prevent the Eagles from driving down the field to kick a lead-extending field goal.
All they had to do then was put their trust in Trubisky to drive down the field under pressure and produce a game-winning touchdown. They didn’t even get a chance to do that because Adam Shaheen couldn’t reel in the ball on the final kickoff.
Why do I think this loss was fantastic though?
So much went wrong today that at this point Matt Nagy doesn’t have a choice but to make some drastic changes. If he doesn’t, then he’s completely incompetent as a head coach and the Bears organization needs to look elsewhere.
