Question no. 1: Will Nagy make good on his regret?

Monday morning, head coach Matt Nagy stated that he wished he could have gotten the ball to Jordan Howard more than what transpired on Sunday night. Howard was rolling against the Packers, coming up with an average of 5.5 yards per carry on the game.

Heck, Howard even caught five out of five targets for 25 yards. He was involved in the passing game more so than we have ever seen. So, maybe Nagy was attempting to make a point there.

Here’s an idea: It’s time to make a point to run the ball more.

There were three instances in the second half where the Bears had a 3rd-and-short and decided to pass the football instead of handing it to their workhorse running back.

Three times.

One of them came when the Bears ended up having to settle for a field goal, still giving the Packers time to go down and win it with a touchdown and extra point.

Howard is a premier back in the NFL, and Nagy is out to prove that. He’s said time and time again that Howard can be a three-down back in this league, and we saw the proof on Sunday night. But, when it matters most, why not give him the ball?

My biggest question going into the game with the Seahawks is whether or not Nagy will follow through with his concern in getting Howard the ball more.
