Matt Nagy Media Meeting: 7 Points is More Than 3

If you're expecting words of wisdom, then this is the wrong Beatles song.

Matt Nagy met with the media this morning after the Bears lost to the Packers 45-30. Nagy, in his typical coach-speak, couldn't resist the urge to point out the obvious. When asked about the red zone drive that ended in a Cole Kmet dropped pass, Nagy more or less said this:

Obviously we want to come away with six or seven points, not three. Cole was targeted and he was still kind of moving his feet. I think if Justin would have hung on another second, he might have been able to find Allen Robinson in the back of the end zone for a touchdown.

You aren't going to win many games like that, especially against the NFC juggernaut that is the Green Bay Packers. Nagy refuses, consistently, to acknowledge that his offense just doesn't work. There is always someone else to blame or something happens that causes the failures. It was difficult to criticize completely in the first half because the offense was moving the ball. Justin Fields was performing outside the Standard Operating Procedure and was moving the ball with his legs effectively. The downfall came when the first half ended and the Bears made zero adjustments.

A Tale of Two Halves

The Packers dominated the Bears in the second half, putting up 17 unanswered points in the third quarter. Green Bay largely outgained Chicago in yards and made proper changes to get themselves ahead in the game. The Bears made no adjustments. They kept doing what was working in the first half and they stalled out in the third quarter. When asked about this, Matt Nagy said the two halves were just totally different halves. You think?

Nagy is completely unqualified to lead this team if he thinks he can do the same thing over and over with the same result. This is the NFL. Opponents take notice of what you do that works and they change what they're doing to stop you. That's a pretty simple concept that Nagy doesn't seem to understand.

Left Tackle Problems

According to Nagy, Jason Peters is the starting left tackle when healthy. The timetable for his return isn't known yet and rookie Teven Jenkins didn't have a great performance in his offensive debut. Clearly, the season is over and getting Jenkins some practice reps is a good idea. Learning behind Jason Peters is a great option as well. The game plan should be: BOTH!

If Jason Peters is healthy, he's the starter. Let's find the why. I understand the desire to protect Justin Fields and that should be a high priority. The reality is: the Bears are all but mathematically eliminated. They aren't going anywhere or winning anything this year, so withholding experience from Jenkins is a mistake.

Matt Nagy continues to exemplify ineptitude as a head coach in the NFL. His press conferences are always so similar and the answers he gives to certain questions border on non-sensical.

Where this team goes from here is likely only in one direction and it's only a matter of time before the Bears move on from Nagy. His offense is statistically one of the worst in the league for consecutive years and the charade he's playing with the media continues to drive us absolutely mad.

The more he speaks, the more it seems like he's truly only infatuated with his own creation that is a Frankenstein offense. Remember the story, Dr. Frankenstein was the true monster, not his creation.
