Chicago Bears head coach Matt Nagy has dialed up less designed runs for Justin Fields than New England has with Mac Jones

Tuesday night on NFL Network, a handful of analysts were talking about Fields and how he compares to other rookie quarterbacks in some areas. One of the most hilarious aspects of this conversation was the fact that Nagy has called fewer designed runs for Fields (4) than Bill Belichick’s Patriots have called for Mac Jones (5).

Let’s get this straight. The Bears have a quarterback who ran a 4.4 in his 40-yard dash and continually made plays with his legs on the biggest college stage. The Patriots, meanwhile, have a known pocket passer, with limited mobility and the ultimate “dad bod.”

Yet, Jones is rushing on more designed run plays than Fields has with the Bears. This is absolutely unacceptable. Clearly, the Bears are running an offense for a quarterback not named Justin Fields.

The most laughable play-calling performance of the year was obviously against Cleveland, where Fields was only moved out of the pocket twice on designed plays. But, as the season goes on, we continue to see Fields in the shotgun. We continue to see Fields dropping back while waiting for guys to get open on deeper routes.


What is Nagy seeing that everyone else doesn’t see? The answer is simple: he can’t see what everyone else is seeing and he needs to go.
