By not being able to play call or develop an offense that any QB we've ever had has ever been able to run to an NFL average level, by a coach who consistently gives up on the run and has some narrow view of a "system" that has never, ever worked.
This had Nagy's personal scent written all over it. Fields looked chained to the pocket on plays he would have taken off when Nagy was out. All deep routes again 15 yards average depth of target for Fields, yet again--is this developing a guy? Not a screen pass in sight, 1 pass to a RB as well as totally giving up on the run. No flow or rhythm found. Dalton did play OK but still was a 50% completion rate--so we are just killing it on the scheme and play-calling. Joe bag o donuts QB out of Baltimore, who likely will never play a full game again in his life, finished with 72% and probably had more YAC from his receivers in this game than the sum total of 1/3 the bears entire season. Every Joe nobody will turn into Clint Longley against the Bears, having their best day ever.
Also I love now that Monty is back we just are gonna run him nonstop--not platoon him with Herbert--seems genius. Also 69 yards rushing from backs today--awesome. Fields added 28. Nice way to give up on the run to ensure you lose time of possession. It takes a special coach to have the 6th best rushing attack in yards in the NFL and to trick the other team and not use it--aha--fooled ya!
I seriously think if you had a Madden CPU on a console call plays you would get a better outcome.
I hope Fields is not seriously hurt but at this point I don't want to play him until Nagy is gone. I don't think whatever we are doing is really working. Nagy is only going to develop dumb habits and not fix his issues.
