Offense to defense

The Chicago Bears have a fantastic defense. They went into the offseason knowing that they had a good defense. It has been really good for a few years now and was even the best in the NFL at one point. Unfortunately, the offense wasn’t good enough to get the defense to where they needed to be. All they needed was to be a middle of the road offense and they could have competed for the Super Bowl (think of 2018).

Well, they haven’t even been average. Instead, they are one of the worst offenses in the entire National Football League. They rival the New York Jets who are 0-11. It has been a pathetic disgrace of a unit that has let the entire team down. Both Ryan Pace and Matt Nagy deserve a tremendous amount of blame for it. The defense deserves better but they haven’t been given any support.

Knowing that the offense needed help, Pace thought it would be a good idea to add Robert Quinn. The Bears’ pass rush needed no help but they felt they needed Quinn anyway. It makes it worse that he has basically been invisible. That money could have gone to an offensive lineman or receiver but instead, they wasted it on Quinn.

Matt Nagy has also been awful at running the offense he has been given. It isn’t all his fault but we know that the way he does things has been terrible. He even let go of play-calling duties because it started to get so bad. We know they need to run the ball more but they barely do and when they do they use the wrong guy. Both Nagy and Pace never need to be guys building or running the Chicago offense ever again.
