The Chicago Bears are the talk of the NFL following speculation about head coach Matt Nagy’s immediate future, which included an unconfirmed report that Nagy would be fired after Thursday’s game against the Detroit Lions.

Instead of addressing the report head-on Tuesday, the Bears organization remained silent and let Nagy, coaches and players take the brunt of it.

Now, according to Dan Pompei, Bears chairman George McCaskey addressed player and coaches Wednesday and explained the report about Nagy being fired after Thursday’s game wasn’t true.

Better late than never, I guess?

It’s been a whirlwind of a couple of days following another report that an “overwhelming number” of Bears players wanted Nagy gone, as well as a report from Brad Biggs about what happened at Halas Hall yesterday once the dysfunction reached its peak.

While McCaskey has essentially told the world that Nagy won’t be fired after the Thanksgiving game, things could certainly change…especially if the Bears lose to the winless Lions.

Even if Nagy survives this weekend, his fate has been sealed. If not this week, soon, or by season’s end.
