After Bears Loss, Coach Nagy Promises Changes. Will it Include Play Calling Duties?

Let’s face it, the Chicago Bears offense has struggled pretty much all season long. After a bye week and extra time to prepare for a short handed New Orleans Saints team, everyone figured we’d see improvement. Actually, things might have actually moved in the wrong direction. The Bears manged just one sustained drive all game up until midway thru the 4th quarter when the game was pretty much decided. They couldn’t run, they couldn’t pass, their line was getting pushed around again. The 36-25 score really didn’t indicate how much of a blowout the game really was. For a second-straight season, the Bears are at 3-3 after six games. But this year has a completely different vibe.

After the game Chicago Bears coach Matt Nagy promised some changes but wasn’t specific. Will he relinquish his play calling duties? Offensive coordinator Mark Helfrich would be a solid choice but never actually called plays when he was head coach of the Oregon Ducks. Another possibility is quarterbacks coach Dave Ragone. He also doesn’t actually have any in-game experience calling plays.

The defense also hasn’t played well the last few weeks. Khalil Mack has been Missing as the dominant player we saw last year. Next up another home matchup with a struggling San Diego Chargers team this Sunday.

If you want to feel good today, former Bears kicker Cody Parkey did his “doink” thing in his first game for the Tennessee Titans. It didn’t matter though, the Titans won their game easily.
