2. Get Cole Kmet on the field

Following the loss to Los Angeles on Monday night, Nagy once again talked about how much he liked rookie tight end Cole Kmet. Nagy mentioned that he has to get Kmet on the field more often.

Nagy is a likable guy, but he tends to say things like this over and over again without actually following through. He’s talked about establishing a run game and giving David Montgomery more work, but it took six weeks for that to happen.

After what we saw from Kmet early on Monday night, he vanished. Nagy continued to roll out Demetrius Harris in place of Kmet, and Harris ended up with a costly penalty and a drop over the course of that game.

Kmet came up with an impressive touchdown catch in their previous game against the Carolina Panthers, and followed it up with an equally impressive catch down the sideline against the Rams. It’s abundantly clear who the better tight end is between Kmet and Harris.

You don’t use your first draft pick on a guy only to not play him. Guess what? The Bears are in a position where things can start to unravel fast. There is no better time than the present to put your best players on the field, and Kmet is clearly the better player between he and Harris. Get him out there and throw him the football, period.
