This. Lazor took a collection of random as plays (Nagy) and watered them down because his QB was inept, now we are back to the potluck play calling because Nagy swore that it was Mitch and Mitch only holding him back from offensive guru nirvanaThis is essentially what all Trubisky’s charts looked like with Bill Lazor calling plays. His air yards stats per attempt went down drastically in the switch from Nagy to Lazor.
Weren’t Bears fans praising Lazor for getting the ball out of Trubisky’s hands quickly and simplifying his reads? And now we are somehow using those same praised games as a negative?
I could see people being angry over the gameplan against the Rams. But to use Lazor’s charts as a form of justification for said anger seems odd and misplaced.
Except their run defense was clearly ebbed so of course Nagy shuts down Monty. You know who else is good at running and making big plays? FieldsPeople aren't paying attention. The Bears were forced into these play calls because their oline was banged up and the Rams defense relies on two deep safeties to shut down the long pass game. The Rams can do this because of Aaron Donald. IT forces most teams to do quick passing routes.
Meanwhile we have Mack and Hicks, yet the Rams could do whatever they wanted to do on offense. Hmmm…People aren't paying attention.

That Nagy put him in at the around the 15 and then pull him at the 2 after that pass was ridiculous. I don't mind sitting him for a few but have been calling for him inside the 10 for weeks. He can stress a D and force gaps like few QBs in that position. It's more about talent than complex reads, line adjustments etc there. 1/2 field roll with a guy like Fields is a killer there.He doesn’t need to be one but the option play was one of the main reasons we scored in the first place
It's less being too conservative than sequencing and at least keeping their safeties honest. You can send Mooney and Goodwin deep on the sides to occupy the safeties and hit AR under them for 15 to 20 yards behind the already deep backers. Run Kmet on some skinny posts in that same gap. Force them to change some things and take advantage. They forced us to the short edges and we just said OK.This board is schizophrenic, lol. Today Nagy is too conservative and last year Lazor was applauded for his conservative use of Mitch.
