On this we agree. Mitch's issues this season are largely between his ears. It looks like he's trying way too hard to play mistake free perfect football. I think we can all agree he plays his best when he's not able to think so much and is forced to just rip it with confidence (like the throw to ARob in the playoffs vs Philly).It's not just the inaccuracy issues for me anymore. He always looks like he's playing a game for his life or something. Always high strung and afraid of making mistakes.
This is where I feel like Nagy is failing us/him. The league has caught up to his playbook and he's getting out-schemed weekly. Week after week you can watch the redzone channel and see teams getting players wide open using a variety of bullshit pick/rub concepts yet where are those plays in the Bears playbook? Do they even have any? I don't recall seeing any.
Can't run the ball. Can barely pass block. Screen game is non-existent. Formations and route concepts are stale and predictable. It's a terrible situation for any QB to be in. People here like to act like some elite superstar QB could just be inserted into the situation and make all those issues magically disappear but I just don't see it. Mahomes can't even make the OL issues disappear on his own team but somehow he's going to do it here... sure oook.
