Travis Kelce thinks Matt Nagy can be “Doug Pederson 2.0”

The Bears are hopeful that hiring head coach Matt Nagy will put them on the path to winning seasons in the future and one of Nagy’s former charges in Kansas City thinks they made the right hire.

Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce told the Bears website that he’s rooting for Nagy “because of how much I loved him as a coach” and he thinks that Nagy can have the same kind of impact in Chicago that another former Chiefs assistant had in Philadelphia this year.

“I think Matt’s a hell of a coach,” Kelce said. “I think he could be Doug Pederson 2.0, to be honest, especially with the quarterback.”

When Pederson came to the Eagles, there weren’t many people predicting a quick turnaround due to the amount of roster changes that were in store after the Chip Kelly era. The Eagles pulled it off with a lot of help from Howie Roseman’s personnel moves and the Bears will need General Manager Ryan Pace to have the same kind of success as they build around Mitchell Trubisky at quarterback.

  1. Raiders fan trolling proves how bad Oakland is, but this is the best time of year for Oakland, since you were 6-10 and regressing during the season…

    Just lose Baby!

  2. Travis Kelce is the best TE in the game, he’s not a clown. It’s just his opinion, you don’t have to act like a left winged Democrat that losses an argument and calls people names because you disagree with his opinion.

  3. Sounds like the Chiefs should have made him their HC rather than sticking with the same vanilla HC that hasn’t been able to get the team over the hump.

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

    “left winged Democrats” (whatever that is) do not need to argue with Tr*mp voters — because Tr*p voters lose every day with their guy, and just keep falling for it over and over. Even Browns fans are smarter than that.

  6. No excuses whatsoever for John Fox and his departed staff, but the Bears were absolutely wrecked by injuries during his tenure. If Nagy wants any chance at all of turning things around there, Ryan Pace needs to quit bringing in fragile players and the new strength and conditioning staff had better be legit.

  7. It’s always great to hit a nerve when it comes to Cheaps fans but it’ll be extra sweet if the Raiders sign Derrick Johnson.

    One nation, Raider Nation.
