Nagy unloads on Bears' offense after win over Brady, Bucs
CHICAGO (AP) - Coach Matt Nagy was discharged for the offensive attack by the Chicago Bears after he was eliminated in the victory over Tampa Bay on Thursday night due to incorrect routing, glitches in blocking technique and missed opportunities for quarterback Nick Foles.
It was a common tone for the normally optimistic Nagy. But the day after the Bears beat Tom Brady and the Buccaneers at 20:19, he was clearly excited.
"The details of this crime are currently not available," he said on Friday. `` So that's our job as coaches to make sure we get these damn details right. As simple as that.''
Nagy is thrilled the Bears are 4-1, their best start since the team won seven of their first eight games in 2012. But the gap between 4-1 and 1-4 or even 0-5 is thin.
The Bears had to bounce back from a double-digit deficit, this time after falling 13-0 in the first half. They joined seven other NFL teams with three wins in their first five games after being ten or more behind, according to Elias Sports Bureau.
Chicago also hosted two major rallies in the fourth quarter to win in weeks 1 and 3. It rebounded from 17 to 17 in Detroit and erased a 16-point deficit in Atlanta. In between, they would have almost 17 points ahead of the New York Giants.
But while those three teams are a combined 1:11, beating Brady and the NFC South-leading Buccaneers gives the Bears at least some credibility. You just have to get more out of the offense. And your trainer is not happy.
"You have to do everything exactly as it is supposed to be done," said Nagy. '' If this means that a route is being carried out in five steps rather than three steps, or if it means that a route is being carried out in three steps rather than seven steps, this must be done. If it means pinpointing a path and blocking someone, it means. If it means spending a certain amount of time on your feet, do that. If it means making the right game call at the right time, do this as a trainer. I mean myself. And so we are all together in this matter. But I refuse to let that happen. ''
Khalil Mack. The three-time all-pro had two sacks, the highest total since a Week 3 win in Washington last season. He has played 17 games without two or more, his longest streak since moving from Oakland in 2014.
WHAT NEEDS HELP?
For the second time in five days, the bears faced a dominant front and again couldn't get their core game going. They ran 35 yards on Thursday after recording 28 losses to Indianapolis.
For comparison: In the first three games they had 414 meters. And that hot production helped build the action game.
While the stakes were nowhere near as high this time around, winning the rematch can only give a boost to Brady Foles' reputation.
The Super Bowl 52 MVP has not put up much in its first matchup since leading Philadelphia to a championship win over New England. He was 30 for 42 with 243 yards and a touchdown and an interception. But he played enough games to help the bears get another close victory
The offense as a whole. It's not hard to see why Nagy is frustrated. After all, the bears averaged 21 points and ranked near the bottom of the league in terms of insult and rush, as well as yards per pass.
LG James Daniels was still being scored after leaving Thursday's game with a chest injury, Nagy said. He was replaced by Alex Bars. Nagy also had no update on security measures for Deon Bush and Sherrick McManis, who missed the game with hamstring injuries, or kicker Eddy Pineiro (groin). He is in an injured reserve and has not played this season.
0 - The Bears did not score a point in the third quarter of this season. And on two full properties plus one that extended to the fourth, the bears only made it 39 meters. Chicago faced what would be the third and long time on its first two trips of the quarter and stabbed.
The bears visit Carolina on October 18th.
