If Nagy was the Bears coach back when they took Trubisky, the wouldn't have took Trubisky, they would have picked Maholmes like they did in KC when Nagy was their OC. Fields will be a top 5 QB and Nagy will be considered a great Coach 5 years from now.

Stephen A blames Nagy for Trubisky, but Nagy wasn't there when they drafted Trubisky - he inherited him. Mel is correct, Nagy didn't utilize Trubisky properly, but Pace is to blame for pairing Nagy's offense with Trubisky's skill set.

“Not Ohio state” As if Ohio state is better than Alabama. Have you watched college football the last 10 years? Alabama has been the cream of crop. Tf are you talking about molly. She got hired for her looks and thinks she got hired for her sports knowledge. Your a moderator. Stop talking so much. Especially stop cutting people off. It’s disgusting. Only reason max and Stephan a allow it is because her husband is Jalen.

Nagy and Pace has done now to keep his job. The fact he didn't want to coach Mitch that was Nagy's issue. Lets not let him off too easy. Thanks for saying that Mel.

@stephen a. You keep including Nagy in drafting Trubisky he was not there. Nagy helped draft Mahomes so that wasn’t his QB and probably was disguised with Mitch.

Matt Nagy had no involvement with the Trubisky decision, DeShaun Watson, Mahomes, he wasn't even the coach for the Bears. I don't think Nagy had faith in Trubisky, it just didn't work out and I think he knew that and just turned his head on Trubisky. I mean you gotta respect him for that, he knew it just wasn't going to work and that's that.

I don’t think people have been too harsh. Heavy public criticism is part of the territory and is one of the only guarantees for nfl coaches. The bears made the playoffs off of their defense and coach blamed the kicker his first year, blamed the qb the second year, then screwed up trubisky’s benching while he was the best option on the team and they had a good record. Perhaps the coach just isn’t that great and is looking for scapegoats to deflect responsibility?

Man, I live near Chicago and I’m no Bears fan, but Nagy is a damned fine coach. There’s maybe three other guys coaching right now that could take Trubisky to the playoffs twice. And Trubisky was a PACE draft, not Nagy. Pace is the problem

He’s backwards as usual. No you haven’t been too tough on him........Nagy is a very soft HC and he does nothing. He’s the biggest problem of the bears. I love how SAS claims “nagys record is this over the last few years” that ain’t his record it’s the defense. He did almost nothing for those wins

Let's see how Nagy messes Fields up. Nagy told Mitch to stop running and Mitch listened to him. That was his only good point. Pace got a reprieve, Nagy hasn't.
Chitex03 4 күн мурун
We’ll definitely see what Nagy is about and how he helps develop Fields in the next few seasons. It’s not so much about making the playoffs this year, but seeing how your future QB develops and is he turning into a stud or a dud by next year. Nagy will still need to balance the offense and run the ball with Montgomery. I hope we can trust his play calling in a new season.

Somebody has to tell stephen A that Nagy was not the coach when Trubisky was drafted. It was John Fox. In trying to apologize to Nagy, he partially blames him for one of the biggest draft blunders in history that he had no hand in. However, as a Bears fan, i wouldve fired Nagy already for his playcalling

What in the world? Nagy hasn't coached a game since the end of the season and Smith has done a full 180 in the interim. Why is he even talking? The Bears have 8-9 guaranteed losses this year against the best teams and on the road.
