Chicago Bears coach Matt Naggy doesn't appear to be willing to give playcalling duties to someone else or reinsert quarterback Mitch Trubisky following a disappointing 24-10 Monday Night Football loss against the Los Angeles Rams.
The Rams, who hosted the Bears on their new SoFi Stadium on Monday night, dominated the visitors as they won 24-10 to improve to 5-2 on the season. The Bears offense struggled throughout the entire match as the team's lone touchdown came after a pick-6 by the Bears defense.
The Bears offense struggled to find rhythm or to get anything going but coach Naggy remains confident in his abilities and is sticking to his plan. "I look at all [the possibility of someone else calling plays]," Nagy said, per ESPN.
"The very first thing I look at is that. I talk to our coaches and we talk through that whole process. I'm really honestly not opposed to, there's no opposition from me if we feel like that that's what the issue is.
And so we look at that. Right now, where we're at, that's not where we think it's at."
Nagy won't bench Nick Foles and reinsert Trubisky
Foles has been the Bears' starting quarterback ever since he replaced Trubisky in a Week 3 against the Atlanta Falcons.
The Bears have had issues with its offensive line but coach Nagy won't reinsert Trubisky in the starting lineup, who is more mobile than Foles. "Yeah, no," Nagy said. "I think you can look at that a bunch of different ways.
When you say that in regards to a mobile quarterback, I'm not so sure that that's the answer with that, with what we're talking about, with the dropback of a quarterback and the offensive tackle situation. We have a lot of confidence, and I have a lot of confidence, in Nick right now.
"Again, this is a process for us to work though, and it's not just one person. It's really not. And I know from yesterday, decision-making-wise and where he's at, I thought he did a good job. I thought he made some good throws.
He missed a couple as well, but again, it's a team sport, so there's some other reasons for that as well. Just keep rolling through that and working through it." The Bears, who have started the season with a 5-2 record, have a tough game on Sunday as they host the New Orleans Saints.
