Why would you wait so long to do this? Bears ownership are idiots, they could have had the official Chicago Bears twitter just tweet "No truth to rumors - no decision has been made to fire Nagy after THU" and killed these rumors in the cradle.
100% and this is what i thought was gonna happen before he came out. Rather than just firing him outright, the whole organization came off as a clown show and now they'll suffer through Nagy for a little while longer just to make themselves look better for their next coach.My take:
After a day of being roasted as bumbling idiots, George took Nagy's head of the chopping block and issued a denial to save face. He will just wait a week or 2 longer after getting pantsed by Ari and GB
Well if we're going to play with being literal here, they could technically fire him on Friday.He said Nagy won't be fired after the game Thursday. The rumor said it was gonna to happen this Monday. He is basically telling the truth, but it does not mean Nagy will not be fired on Monday
I also heard that interview and was not very convinced.Who knows, but the simplest explanation is that Mark Konkol, a guy who admitted sports isn’t his wheelhouse and that his story was based on a single phone call, simply got it wrong.
I was skeptical when he kind of hemmed and hawed about it on the radio, saying he was “pretty sure” and that it was “looking like it was going to happen”.
I know some people will be convinced Konkol was right and that ownership had to change their plans when it all went public, but Bears beat guys have already said Konkol’s story was incorrect when it says Nagy was notified of his impending termination.
Anything is possible, but the evidence and the lack of corroboration from Bears beat guys who live in Halas Hall suggests Konkol was misinformed by someone he thought had better information than they actually did. He didn’t vet it and simply rolled with it, by his own admission.
Nagy might as well mow the lawn too or some shit.100% and this is what i thought was gonna happen before he came out. Rather than just firing him outright, the whole organization came off as a clown show and now they'll suffer through Nagy for a little while longer just to make themselves look better for their next coach.
Incredible how awfully ran this team is but hey, new facilities or something!
