The Chicago Bears have had a strong start to the season, and they sit in second place in the NFC North at 5-2. They've actually been out-scored a combined 140-138 by their opponents, however, and they just suffered a 24-10 defeat at the hands of Sean McVay and the Los Angeles Rams on Monday.
NFL analyst and former QB Dan Orlovsky highlighted one key issue with the Bears: their head coach.
Matt Nagy took over at the helm in Chicago in 2018, leading the team to a strong 12-4 record. They quickly declined, however, going 8-8 in 2019.
Hired as a potential offensive mastermind after serving as the Kansas City Chiefs' offensive coordinator in 2017, Nagy has not lived up to any of the hype. Mitchell Trubisky's development has been non-existent, and even with Super Bowl MVP Nick Foles at the helm, this offense hasn't shown any promise.
Bears fans have to enjoy being off to such a strong season, but it's also bittersweet. A winning season could save Nagy's job, no matter how badly he's being outcoached on a weekly basis.
