Anthony Miller Takes a Shot at the Bears’ Play-Calling

The third-year receiver vented some frustration with the Bears’ play-calling when meeting with the media.

After a 5-1 start to the 2020 NFL campaign, the Chicago Bears have reached their lowest point of the season. Sitting at 5-6 and representing one of the worst offenses in football, it seems like the locker room may now be in question. Wide receiver Anthony Miller was asked on Friday about what the offense needs to do to click on Sunday. His answer raised a few eyebrows.

“I think the plays that we practice and execute in practice need to be called when we get to the game on Sunday.”

It seems that Miller isn’t too happy with the way plays are being called on gameday. This has continued to be an issue, even with head coach Matt Nagy relinquishing play-calling duties after a dismal effort before the Minnesota game. Not much has seemed to change with offensive coordinator Bill Lazor at the helm. Unfortunately, the Bears offense is still struggling to score points consistently.

With the drama surrounding Allen Robinson and his contract dispute as well as rumors swirling that Nagy is on the hot seat, this is the last thing a struggling team needs. If the Bears continue to drop games down the stretch, this could get worse before it gets better.

No doubt Miller would have developed into a better receiver elsewhere. But he should probably stop dropping balls in crucial situations before criticizing his coaches. His comments also underline how little he has matured in the 3 years since he was drafted.

Anthony Miller needs to learn how to run his routes correctly and how to catch the football! Pace moved up to draft Miller who was supposed to be a star! Didn’t happen! Then last year was going to be his breakthrough year, it didn’t happen! Then this year was supposed to be his breakthrough year. Didn’t happen. He’s an inconsistent, mediocre slot receiver at best!
