The Chicago Bears wanted to get an offensive minded football coach in order to refine Mitchell Trubisky’s skills and we know now that is Matt Nagy. Nagy served as the offensive coordinator under Andy Reid for his entire career, initially that relationship started back in Philadelphia with the Eagles. However Nagy went with Reid when he ended up taking the Kansas City Chiefs job. During that time Nagy rose from an intern all the way to an O.C. Clearly the development that Nagy achieved during that time has molded him for leadership in the NFL and now he will get his chance with the Bears. This move makes sense on Chicago’s behalf because the plan is to optimize Mitchell Trubisky’s talents. The Rams were in similar situation when they selected Sean McVay to coach up Jared Goff. Chicago follows suit by getting a great x and os guy who can teach the offensive fundamentals to an up and coming quarterback. That should help put the Bears in a favorable position but this roster is still lacking the right group of receivers who can make plays downfield. As good as Mitchell Trubisky is it doesn’t matter if Nagy’s wide outs can’t catch the ball. Expect General Manger Ryan Pace to draft a wide receiver or two this spring in the NFL Draft. Chicago could also use free agency to address their lack of pass catchers as well. From there it’s all about stacking the defense but you can begin to see that the Bears have their ducks in a row. It hasn’t been that way in a very long time and it should result in more wins during the 2018 season. All Matt Nagy has to do is come in and put up a bunch of points on the board. Everything should fall into place from there.
