Mitch lacks Fields arm talent, mind, and resilience. At least Fields describes his responsibilities on a play to reporters. It’s not Fields fault that play calling was shit. Nagy was exposed by Foles last year. Foles is a true professional QB. He is good for Fields.
Fields will be ok. He is a smart kids who learned the speed of the game. Now with good coaching and time with his teammates, we will see development.
Pace should’ve said no to Dalton. This is why Pace needed to be fired. He should’ve said I gave up a 4th rounder for Foles, deal with it.
That 10 million could’ve gotten a CB2, C or WR.
What if Trubisky comes back to Chicago as part of hiring Daboll and wins the starting job over Fields out of training camp?So more coming out about how bad of a coach Nagy was.
What happens if Trubisky gets a shot with another team and finds some success? As bad a coach as Nagy was, he still had a winning record here. And if it turns out it was largely the coaching that ruined Mitch just like it's done no favors for Fields, Foles or Dalton, do people re-evaulate their perspective on Pace and his (in)ability to put talent on the field that can win games?
I felt the same way about the press conference. I am tired of the arrogance and refusal to admit past mistakes. I have lost any confidence in the ability of these people to get things right. Rinse and repeat.At the top this team makes every predictable mistake, whether it's by copy-catting or over-correcting. They want an offensive innovator so they get Trestman, which ends in disaster. So they go get Fox to stabilize the situation, which leaves them out of sync with the league. So the pendulum swings back and they get another offensive wunderkind in Nagy. Lather rinse repeat.
McKaskey's press conference was painful and humiliating, and entirely predictable. The Bears just stumble along reacting, paying consultants to make football decisions, caricature team owners from a Hollywood B movie. No one in power is actually taking charge or thinking. JF will have to be one very resilient young man to not end up traumatized and wasted.
As much as I hate the mad rush to build shiny new publicly financed stadiums, if moving to Arlington is part of a plan to sell to new owners then I'm all for it.
This is at least the 4th time I’ve seen this about signing Dalton. You guys completely spin what happened. They whiffed on Watson and Wilson. They then signed Dalton because Foles was the only guy they had. They had also been trying to trade Foles. Everybody thought he was done in Chicago so this idea that we were cool with hanging onto Foles is bs. Everybody wanted Foles gone and everybody thought he would probably get traded. The draft also hadn’t happened. So they didn’t have Fields. They also gave Dalton backup money. It was obvious they were going to draft a guy. They have to have something at the QB position though. Not just a rookie they haven’t even drafted yet and that’s it. They needed a body who could potentially play after whiffing on Watson and Wilson and Dalton was about all that was left. Dalton was essentially a replacement for Foles who it felt like would be gone. The Bears never got what they wanted for Foles and just ended up keeping him. And now people are like “Why didn’t they just keep Foles?” Because everybody wanted Foles gone. They were trying to trade him. And people are also now like “They brought in Dalton to be the guy.” They did not bring in Dalton to be the guy. They took a flier on him after having almost no other options and gave him backup money to be the stop gap for whatever rookie they drafted.
Now look at what Foles said back in August“I never requested a trade,” Foles said. “If a team wanted to trade for me, I would look at it, but I just made it clear—The team was great. They were like, if there’s a team you want to go to, then we can talk, and if there’s a team you don’t want to go to, then we’re not gonna do it.
“I mean, teams were wanting to trade. It’s a crazy business and we were banged up and fortunately, I’m glad I got to spend this year with my teammates in Chicago.”
“Is aspiring to be a three what I want?” Foles said during training camp. “No, it’s not. I’ve shown what I can do. I’ve shown it in the right situation. A player wants to be in the right situation where he’s running what he wants to run and doing it the way he wants to do it, in complements to the coaching staff.
This made me laughNagy couldn't develop a Polaroid. He was a glorified quarterbacks coach. I like how you guys are calling him a fraud, it's the truth. I will be surprised if Nagy ever gets another HC opportunity.
Who knows how good Mitch is? I'll never forget the brilliant pass he threw to get the Bears into position for the double-doink. What was it 20-25 yards down the right hash, on a dime, with everything on the line? He also led 10-15 touchdown drives in the Bills Bears PS game in 2021, not sure of the actual number. Wouldn't be surprised if Mitch someday gets an opportunity and runs with it.
This is the tweet from 7 days after announcing the signing. They absolutely did bring in Dalton to be the guy or they wouldn't have their social media team tweeting out that he's the guy on March 24th.And people are also now like “They brought in Dalton to be the guy.” They did not bring in Dalton to be the guy. They took a flier on him after having almost no other options and gave him backup money to be the stop gap for whatever rookie they drafted.
This reminds me of the Tim Brewster hype tape, maybe he'll be a lifer for the college/ high school ranks.This is what you get when the dumbest guy in the room insists that he is the smartest. Matt Nagy jams and bullies in the call and personnel that HE wants even though his coach objects. Runs the play.....www.barstoolsports.com
