Chicago Bears head coach Matt Nagy could be replaced by Greg Roman
Since taking over as the Baltimore Ravens offensive coordinator, Greg Roman has done a phenomenal job with limited offensive weapons. Over the past couple seasons, it’s been the Lamar Jackson show, paired with a strong running game featuring backs like Mark Ingram, J.K. Dobbins and Gus Edwards.
The difference this year? None of those running backs are behind Jackson. In fact, he’s had a myriad of running backs to work with and Jackson has still been pretty good. The Ravens, for the most part, have tried to stay with the run game and use it as a catalyst for Jackson in the passing game.
One of the things Roman has been tasked with is attempting to further Jackson as a passer. For anyone who says the kid can’t pass, he’ll prove you wrong — as he has several times in the last couple of seasons. But, this year, Roman has tried to use Jackson under center more — something that’s worked well for Fields.
When Jackson is under center, it leaves the defense guessing and opens the door for some dangerous play action passes. Those formations have been the most fun to watch with Fields this year, and should Roman get his opportunity in Chicago, you better believe he’ll use a lot more of it here.
