But Foles couldn't run it either...and he KNEW THE SYSTEM.Pretty in-line with what's expected. His system requires a QB that can read a defense, make his progressions and deliver the ball accurately: something that Trubisky could never do. Dalton is better equipped to handle the duties. To me, this feels like the Bears' brass saying "ok so Trubisky sucks but prove to me your offense and your ability to run it works."
"It wasn't my playcalling, it was Mitch. See those last few games with Lazor calling plays?"
Honestly though, I don't think this is a big deal. The play designs suck and the QB sucks and the OL sucks, so the play calls will suck. But I will say, I think Nagy should loosen up a bit. In 2018, he was calling a lot of innovative things, doing things with formations, putting linemen in the backfield. He needs to get back to that stuff. Saw almost 0 of that in 2019 and 2020, and when he did call it, it messed up the offensive rhythm.
Nagy going back to calling plays sounds like a bad idea considering Bears Off was poor when he called plays and improved so much when he stopped.you egotistical asshole this will be your downfall

When have fans let Nagy off the hook? Maybe early on with Trubisky, but the only people letting Nagy off the hook for well over a year are Ryan Pace and the McCaskeysBut Foles couldn't run it either...and he KNEW THE SYSTEM.
This season is just gonna be a massive clusterfuck. I'm sure fans will find a way to blame it all on Dalton and let Nagy off the hook yet again.
It's simple. He used up his bag of tricks and the league adjusted. He never did. Just like he never does in the second half of the game and they get shut out in the third quarter.I remember after almost every game in 2018 talking about how many times we had receivers that were wide open multiple times. Don't know how it went from that to having such a blah offense the next 2 years but if it takes getting back to doing more trick plays and moving players around more to get back to our 2018 offense then do it damn it.
