Lake Forest, lll. – Chicago Pierce coach Matt Nagy does not want to give up playcalling duties or return to quarterback Mitchell Trubiski Following a devastating 24-10 loss to the Los Angeles Rams on Monday night.
With seven games and a 5-2 record, Chicago are 27th in points per game (19.7), 30 yards (4.8) per game, 30 yards (3.8) per run, 29 yards (5.6) per pass, and 30th in third-place transitions. Location (35.1%) and 29th place in red zone performance (47.6%).
“I see it all [the possibility of someone else calling plays], “Nagy said Tuesday.” That was the first thing I saw. I talk to our coaches and we talk about that whole process. I am not really honestly opposed and there is no opposition from me if we realize what the problem is. So we look at it. Now, where we are, we think it is. “
In the 3rd week Nagy supported Trobiski Nick Foles, 261 yards and went 28-for-40 for two interceptions against the Rams. Foles has thrown 1,139 yards in five appearances (four starts), six touchdowns and six interceptions.
Foles is the 27th-ranked NFL graduate based on QPR (46.2).
During the quarterback shift, Trobiski passed 560 yards, six touchdowns and three interceptions. The No. 2 pick in 2017, Trubiski led Chicago into the post-2018 season, but backtracked badly last year, prompting the Bears to trade for the Foles.
In light of the problems in Chicago’s offensive line, Nagy rejected the idea of re-incorporating Trobiski, which is more mobile than Foles.
“Yes, no,” Nagy said. “I think you can see it in different ways. As for a mobile quarterback, what you say is the answer to what we’m talking about, a quarterback with a dropback and an offensive situation. We have a lot of confidence, and now I have a lot of confidence in Nick.
“Again, it’s a process that works for us, it’s not just a person. It’s not really. I know from yesterday, decision – wise, where he is, I thought he did a good job. He did some good throws, he missed a couple, but Again, this is a team game, so there’s some other reasons for that. Roll over and work through it. “
The Bears return home to face the New Orleans Saints (4-2) on Sunday.
