Bears head coach Matt Nagy has been under fire following his game plan in last Sunday’s 26-6 loss to the Browns, which featured Chicago’s worst offensive performance in 40 years, and ultimately threw quarterback rookie Justin Fields to the dogs.
When Nagy was asked Monday whether a change at play caller could be in the works, he said “everything is on the table.” But when asked Wednesday who would be calling plays Sunday against the Lions, Nagy refused to answer the question, saying they’re going to “keep it internal” and that there have been “amazing healthy conversations” at Halas Hall this week.
Nagy has become a master at saying a lot without saying anything at all. It’s something that’s been frustrating for Bears fans in the past. But following last week’s flop on offense, the lack of answers — including a simple answer of who will be calling the plays — has been absolutely maddening to fans.
Nagy refusing to answer the play caller question suggests a change is coming. #Bears

Q: Who is calling the plays Sunday?

Nagy has perfected the art of saying a lot without actually saying anything.

#Bears head coach Matt Nagy declining to answer who will be calling plays is a cowardly thing to do.
If it truly is still him, then he needs to be held accountable if it sucks again, but if the flow of the game improves and it is Bill Lazor, then Lazor should get the praise.

Listening to H.C Matt Nagy avoid direct questions like…
Bro are going to give up play calling or not?!?
— Tyler Ellis (@Thegainsreport) September 29, 2021
Matt Nagy sounds like a used cars salesman during these press conferences.
A lot of vague answers, never direct.

Who's calling plays for the #Bears this Sunday?
Matt Nagy: Keeping that in-house.
Is Justin Fields starting on Sunday?
Matt Nagy: It depends.
Come on. This is getting really, really old.

Nagy’s arrogance makes rooting for a guy like Dan Campbell very easy. https://t.co/YyxtolZU7Y

Both Matt Nagy and Bill Lazor are going to stand on the sideline on Sunday with the Denny's menu and the Lions are going to be so perplexed that Dan Campbell will bite off his own knee caps. #Bears https://t.co/eQToppJsAS

so the joker had a press conference to say absolutely nothing whatsoever? https://t.co/h7oXEH6fV8

What a pointless press conference…Dalton is #1 Fields is #2. Nagy isn't giving up play calling…he won't just answer the question. Spinning this as I type. What a waste…you narcissist doofus. #Bears #DaBears #BearDown #FireNagy#FireNagy#FireNagy pic.twitter.com/1JMgfpM2mT

Matt Nagy, if your impromptu press conference is about anything less than you let going of play calling not only for the rest of the year but for the rest of your time with the Bears, we're going to boo you to death
— Alfred Shitcock (@A_Shitcock) September 29, 2021
Matt Nagy is saying a whole lot of words but absolutely nothing of substance. The injury report will tell the story at QB & we likely won’t see a big change with the offense regardless of who is calling plays. #Bears
— Aaron Leming (@AaronLemingNFL) September 29, 2021
Shoutout to Matt Nagy for completely dodging the question of who will call plays for the #Bears and refusing to hold himself accountable for future failures

That means the conversations were not productive and nothing will change.
Otherwise they wouldn't be "keeping it internal" https://t.co/RNS9lOYh6q

At least Matt Nagy swings at strike 3. Still an out though. https://t.co/rB4r4aS3iq

Translation: Nagy still hasn't committed to giving up playcalling and is still fighting to call plays https://t.co/EiQpiXHfTG

He is praying to God that Dalton healthy so he can run his BS offense.
— William Redmond (@william_redmond) September 29, 2021
So why was this presser called? If he wasn't giving out useful info did the PR team think it would be a good Idea for ppl just see Matt as man or something? Lol

The run around on these answers is maddening

The only “amazing” thing happening at Halas Hall is how this guy continues to flop and fail with zero consequences.
— JayDub0905 (@JDub0905) September 29, 2021
Matt Nagy just said so many words to say literally nothing at all. What in the world.
