Chicago Bears head coach Matt Nagy continues to push the same narrative about his failing offense.

2020 has been an odd year for the Chicago Bears so far. The team stormed out to a fast start, winning five of its first six games, making a quarterback switch in week three. Winning five of your first six games is never an easy task in the NFL, however, it gave so many hope that maybe the Bears had figured the offense out under Nagy.

Then there’s head coach Matt Nagy, who’s taken a lot of heat in 2020 for the issues that exist on offense. No running game and a bad offensive line that’s continued to fail each week. Nagy benched Mitchell Trubisky halfway through the Bears week 3 win against the Atlanta Falcons in favor of veteran Nick Foles, who’s struggled to make the offense look even functional.

However, in the process, the Bears have also lost three straight games and appear to be getting worse each week. The offense appears to be lost and there appears to be no end in sight.

Throughout all this, it seems like every time Nagy is asked about the offense’s woes, he seems to push the same narrative about how the Bears need to continue to figure it all out and be better. Sure that answer might have worked in week two or three, however, it’s not going to work in week nine or ten when your team has lost three straight games and no progress has been made.

Listen, we all know the writing is on the wall at this point. In the NFL, no team struggles on offense the way that the Bears have in 2020 and then magically figure out a way to turn it all around. Three years into the Nagy era and we’re still waiting for the offense to look semi-decent.

Here’s the deal: The next time Nagy pushes the narrative that the Bears offense needs to be better, don’t believe him. This is the same head coach who took the job in Chicago knowing he’d have to work with Trubisky but failed to figure him out. As a result, he had a say in the Bears trading for Foles and appears to be failing with his handpicked quarterback as well.

Nagy knows he has to figure out the offense and so quickly, otherwise, it’s a matter of time before the season ends and he’s in the unemployment line, looking for work once again. And this time, his job market won’t be as lucrative as most think because the NFL has seen what he really is.
