While penalties and miscues have plagued Chicago’s offense, offensive coordinator Luke Getsy’s playcalling has been a big contributor to failed drives.
As you can imagine, Bears fans were fuming about Getsy’s repeated use of failed screens and run calls, where quarterback Justin Fields hasn’t been given an opportunity to stretch the field vertically.
Chicago trails 10-6 at halftime, where it’s clear they have plenty of adjustments to make before the final 30 minutes of play. Whether those adjustments are made remains to be seen. But it’s been another ugly showing about Green Bay to kick off the 2023 NFL season.
Here’s what Bears fans had to say about Getsy’s first-half playcalling:
I’ve already had enough of Luke Getsy

Luke Getsy needs to come off these screens. He’s not fooling anybody. Attack down field, please. #Bears

Luke Getsy probably already regrets that first series. Questionable call on third-and-1 to line up Cole Kmet, the TE, under center. Opening drive no time to see if gimmicky play will work. Hand off or sneak on third down. Bad start for offense, which was moving the ball.

Luke Getsy needs to trust Justin Fields.

Luke Getsy loves to set the offense up with 2nd and forever

Through one quarter, this has not been a good showing from Luke Getsy.

Blame Luke Getsy.. He’s been awful stemming from last season.. Him & Nathaniel Hackett are two of the same! https://t.co/J2krNw93YV

Luke Getsy going “Hey, we can run screen passes now,” to “Hey, we can only run screen passes” is pretty damn frustrating.

Luke Getsy and predictable run calls
— Blake (@SoldierFieldBlg) September 10, 2023
Does Luke Getsy know the rules allow you to throw the ball downfield?
— Greg Boysen (@GregBoysen) September 10, 2023
Wtf is Luke Getsy doing
— TonyThePodBoss (@TonythePodBoss) September 10, 2023
3rd and 7 why we throwing WR screens to Claypool?
Luke Getsy and Alan Williams killin me so far
— Asst GM of CTE Ball (@CNN_90) September 10, 2023
Luke Getsy’s gameplan is run on first down, screen on second, hope something happens with third and long. This is brutal.
— Brew Crew Fan Rudy 🦌 (@CoveysBurner) September 10, 2023
te direct snap on third and short. luke getsy, I hate you
— @robertzeglinski.bsky.social (@RobertZeglinski) September 10, 2023
This is some awful play calling by Luke Getsy. My god. Call 2023 NFL offensive plays. Brutal.
— Joe DiGiacomo (@Joeyd51) September 10, 2023
Only the Bears would take DJ Moore out for the first two plays at the goal line. Luke Getsy got saved by Fields running last year, he is predictable beyond belief. Fire him if he stays the same.

Luke Getsy has strictly screen passes on his call sheet this afternoon. #DaBears
— Noah Adamany (@NoahAdamany) September 10, 2023
Luke Getsy just doesn’t want to leave Chicago for a head coaching gig and decided the easiest way to accomplish this was to just not get offered any.
— bryguy.bsky.social (@StuckInTheIV) September 10, 2023
Luke Getsy please don’t do this to me this year.
— WindyCitySports (@windycitysp0rts) September 10, 2023
Can someone remind Luke Getsy that DJ Moore is on the team now. Enough of the side passes, go downfield
— Sindy (@SweetSinnndy) September 10, 2023
Not even threatening Fields as a runner in the run game. Luke Getsy master class of run everything that doesn’t work

Luke Getsy doing his best Matt Nagy impersonation on 3rd down. If you're going to waste a roster spot on a FB… this is the time you actually use it.
— Tim Toovey (@tuesday107) September 10, 2023
Luke Getsy forgot what an I formation is
— Chubs82 (@BrandonLboog) September 10, 2023
Luke Getsy is calling a horrible game thus far! Why the hell did we get Claypool and Moore if we don’t use them.
— Danny Ramirez (@drami1822) September 10, 2023
Stupid football comes back to haunt you… Lol. What a joke, man.#GoPackGo has all the momentum now because Luke Getsy decided to go full Matt Nagy and get cute when trying to pick up one damn yard.
Never go full Matt Nagy… it’ll burn you every time. #DaBears
