After one of the most embarrassing offensive performances in recent memory, Chicago Bears‘ head coach Matt Nagy did not name a starter for Week Four on Monday. Rather, he expressed that all three quarterbacks on the roster could start against the Lions at Solider Field.
This announcement comes in wake of Andy Dalton‘s bone bruise and Justin Fields‘ hand. According to reports, the team checked out Fields’ hand but it appears to be okay. Per reports, Fields’ X-ray came back negative, but Nagy wants to see how the rookie looks on Wednesday.
For starters, Nagy’s offense hasn’t exactly been impressive no matter who the starting quarterback is. Justin Fields was hung out to dry in his first career start on Sunday, and the offense hasn’t scored more than 14 points in a game this season. In the team’s win against the Bengals in Week Two, the Bears’ defense helped the team score 20 points, with the offense only adding 13 points of their own.
Now, there is the potential that if Fields “doesn’t look good” on Wednesday, that Nagy will start Nick Foles assuming Dalton isn’t ready. That thought alone is terrifying given the state of the Bears’ offense. During Sunday’s loss to the Cleveland Browns, the Bears only averaged a pathetic 1.1 yards per play. That average is the second-fewest in any game… this century.
With the Bears offense in shambles, all three quarterbacks could potentially start on Sunday. For Bears fans, the only hope of something better is if Nagy never returns to the Bears’ sideline. However, given the history of the Bears’ front office, that likely won’t happen until the season is over. If that’s the case, brace yourselves Bears fans, who know what Sunday against the Lions will look like.
