Well, the two wins against the Lions and the Raiders are definitely the outlier in this season. Only the win against the Bengals rings out with a true accomplishment. The Bengals just beat the Ravens in Baltimore to take command of that division. How can the team that beat the Bengals, get spanked at home by the Packers, follow that embarrassment up with an absolute shellacking in Tampa? How can Pace and Nagy still be employed this Monday morning after. How long till the Defense starts mailing it in?

Many actually gave Nagy a lot of credit for the result against the Raiders, but that was pre-mature. That win was more of a Gruden email fall out than a true Bears victory.

Nagy is just over matched and should never have been hired as a Head Coach. Many here had their doubts when he was hired. But the media and the Homers convinced the world that he was a QB Whisperer and made Alex Smith a star and created Patrick Mahommes. What we have since learned, he is an Arena QB pretending to be an expert on NFL offenses. Why do his teams play so undisciplined? Stupid penalties and stupid times and also getting ejected for unsportsmanlike behavior. That is a sign of a poorly coached team.

His offense is the worst in the NFL regardless of who is calling the plays. Only the run game is any good, that is due to the talent at the position more than the scheme. Imagine what that run game could do with a real HC/OC combo. We are back to seeing garbage being put on display on Sunday's. This guy needs to be gone now, not in January. But we all know how much the McCaskeys hate paying coaches not to coach.

Pace is just as guilty as Nagy. Reaching for boom or bust candidates in the first 2 rounds, trading away draft capitol when he thinks they are just one player away from something great. Sticking with his draft picks way too long when it is proven they are not NFL material.

Pace and Nagy were sold as a package unit this year and should shown the door as a single package. They can share moving expenses.

They are well on their way to ruining yet another first round QB pick. Mitch could have been serviceable with a good Coach. Justin could be downright explosive in the right situation. 22 Sacks and 6 interception with only two TDs to show.

And I wonder why no one shows up here to talk about the Bears??? There really is nothing left to discuss. This boat is beyond salvaging at this point. It needs new leadership and an influx of new crew to right this sinking tub.

Pace, Nagy and the entire offensive staff need to be shown to the door. Desai and his defense is the only functioning part. One might be able to say Juan Castillo is doing wonders with cast offs and marginal talent. But that is another Pace failing. Drafting Chris Williams 2.0 at LT in the first round. Some of the others are not much better. A patch work WR Room does not help either. Why is Jimmy Graham still a Bear? Kmet needs to get some big boy pants. RB is the only solid room on that offense. Monty, Williams and Herbert are for real. The one bright spot.

The only bright spot to this season is...we are not Lions Fans!

NFL Fans Are Chanting For Head Coach To Be Fired

Andrew Holleran  12 hrs ago

You know you’re on the hot seat as an NFL head coach when there are chants for you to be fired at an away game.

That’s reportedly what’s happening on Sunday evening.

The Chicago Bears are getting crushed by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, 38-3, on Sunday evening. Chicago is set to fall to 3-4 on the season with Sunday’s loss, while Tampa Bay is improving to 6-1.

According to reports from Tampa Bay, fans are chanting “Fire Nagy!” inside Raymond James Stadium in South Florida.

Yikes.

The chants aren’t reserved to just the stadium, either. Many fans on social media are calling for the Bears head coach to be let go.

CBS analyst Tony Romo made it clear on Sunday afternoon that he is not a fan of the strategy by the Bears head coach.

Nagy, 43, is in his fourth season as the Bears head coach. However, Chicago hasn’t had a winning season since Year 1, when Nagy led the Bears to a 12-4 season and playoff appearance in 2018.

The Bears are scheduled to return to the field on Sunday, Oct. 31 against the San Francisco 49ers.

2021  At least I am not a Lions Fan!

Fire Nagy now!

Well after this beat down by the Bucs, It's obvious the Bears are not going to compete with the better teams consistently. I believe Nagy is starting to lose some of his players in the clubhouse. Did anybody else notice players giving up on some plays today?  It is evident the Bears are mediocre as a team. There are too many missing players to be good team. The team will not make the playoffs this year. It is time to dump  both Pace and Nagy. They will not lead the Bears to respectability. I would unload Hicks, ARob, Foles or Dalton before the trade deadline. ARob will be gone next year. Why not trade ARob and get a 3 or 4th for him. Call the Jets to see if they have interest in either Foles or Dalton. They might bite based on the injury to Zack Wilson today. It looked like a bad leg injury. Their backup had no experience in a game except for taking over today. Pace has failed to bring in enough good talent, manage draft capital and players salaries. Nagy is in over his head and has a too large of an ego. George H. McCaskey it time for you to step up to the plate and fulfill your duties. You have the permission of all of the BEAR NATION.

I would like to add something but I don't really know what is left to add. You both are spot on. I guess if I were to add anything it would be the obvious that Pace and Nagy should've been gone last year and like we all know it isn't the McCaskey way to fire coaches or management before seasons end but to me if they want to show arguably the most passionate fan base in the league they give some fucks about winning they'd change that process right now and either show their buddy Phillips the door as well or demote him to bean counter only, that guy has no business making any kind of football decisions

Looks like the Jets just signed Joe Flacco. We missed an opportunity to get rid of one of the QB's.

Doubt we were in the running at all... Flacco signed a 1 year $3.5m deal... Dalton is $10m for the year and Foles still has like 3 years of $8m on his contract and already has shown he won't accept a trade to anywhere unless he really wants to go.  The only way we are getting rid of him is if Indy decides to find another QB as Foles would move to a team coached by Frank Reich... so unless something bad happens to Wentz, we are stuck with Foles until he gets to a spot where we can cut him without too much of a cap hit.

Sadly I don't see them firesaling the team this year... just gonna stumble to a 8-9/7-10/6-11 season... and maybe back into the playoffs again.. hate to hope for a loss to the GB but hoping Nagy's future hangs on it and they can't overcome all the obsticles and he definitely finds his way out..

The McCaskey way is to do nothing and just say how mad Ginny is in January. We are stuck with Pace and Nagy until then. I just hope they do not break Fields in the meantime.

If Justin and his agent were smart, they would have him come up lame for about 10 weeks. Make Dalton and Foles play out this catastrophe and earn some of their money.

I feel your pain Sluggo, but I am of a simialr mind as Bama on this one. Foles has zero appeal to anyone other than Indy (Reich). Because they all know Foles will balk at any trade that sends him somewhere where he is not known. Would have maybe been easier to move Dalton. Like Bama said though, Flacco is a cheap solution for the Jets. At that price he is worth a flyer for a desperate team. He costs no more than any other utility Veteran player at this point.

Bama and Shadow I agree with you. Just read and article on the Bears Wire about eight veterans the Bears could trade. The only trade that would benefit the Bears was A Rob and Hicks. The rest were washes or it would cost more to trade them than keep.

I found an article about if we traded the below eight  what would the Cap and Dead Money be.

Allen Robinson cap is 18mil with no dead money

Hicks cap is 10.5 mil with a 1.5 mil in dead money

Dalton cap is 2.5 mil with 2.5 mil in dead money

Danny Trevathan 8.4 cap and 13.4 in dead money

Nicl Foles 7.6 mil cap and 14.3 mil dead money

Eddie Jackson 1.1 cap and 4 mil in dead money

Jimmy Graham 1.2 cap with 4.1 in dead money

Damien Williams 1.0 cap and 125.000 in dead money

Total Cap we would save 50.3 mil

Dead Money is a little over 44mil.

It makes sense to trade only ARob and  Hicks. We would save 28.5 on cap and only have 1.5 mil in dead money. We would lose money if we traded Danny T, Nick Foles, Eddie Jackson and Jimmy Graham. Looks like we can thank Ryan Pace for poor deals and extensions. CEO George make the move and term your 2 biggest problem. Then take out Teddy with them. Hire someone who knows what to do and how to build a franchise, and not just the cheapest salary demand by candidates.

Report: Bears already looking at coaching replacements to succeed Matt Nagy

Brendan Sugrue

Fri, November 5, 2021, 1:35 PM·3 min read

Remember, remember, it’s only the fifth of November. But according to one NFL insider, the Chicago Bears are already lining up potential candidates to succeed Matt Nagy. At the top of the list? Buffalo Bills offensive coordinator Brian Daboll.

NFL insider Benjamin Allbright joined Jon Zaghoul on Sports Talk Chicago this week and says the Bears are getting a list together of potential head coaching candidates they would like to interview, even though Nagy still has a job.

Allbright says Nagy is “100 percent” fired at the end of the season though.

“From my conversations with people, the [Bears] have already started doing backgrounds on potential replacements,” Allbright told Zaghoul. “I’ll say Brian Daboll would be the leader in the clubhouse.”

The report that the Bears are already getting names together for if/when Nagy is fired isn’t all that surprising, but is welcoming news. Regardless if a change is made or not, the team should have a short list put together for potential interviews when that time eventually comes.

It’s also notable that Allbright mentioned Daboll as the top name in mind. Two weeks ago, he tweeted a similar claim that the longtime coach would likely be the Bears’ top choice if a change were to be made.

Daboll has coaches various positions with multiple NFL and college teams over the last 20 years, including stints with the New England Patriots, New York Jets, Cleveland Browns, Alabama Crimson Tide, and now with the Bills. He’s currently coordinating the top scoring offense in the NFL with MVP-candidate Josh Allen and has been with the team since the 2018 season.

His offenses with Buffalo have ascended in each consecutive year, as well Allen’s development from a project quarterback into a superstar. Last season, the Bills finished with a top-five offense in nearly every statistical category as they captured the NFC East division for the first time since 1995 with a 13-3 record.

Daboll is an excellent offensive coordinator, but would he be an effective NFL head coach? Allbright seems to think so.

“I’ve spoken with coach Daboll a few times, he’s a nice guy…I believe in him,” he said. “I think he’s probably the best hire in this coming offseason.”

Allbright also mentioned the Bears could give an interview to Arizona Cardinals defensive coordinator and former Denver Broncos head coach Vance Joseph, but maintains his belief that Daboll would be their top choice.

There’s still half a season to go and nothing is truly certain in the NFL, but perhaps the Bears make a quick work of their head coaching decision this winter.

2021  At least I am not a Lions Fan!

Fire Nagy now!
