Matt Nagy: Bears offense will “feel very similar” to Chiefs

AP

The Bears took Matt Nagy out of his job as the Chiefs offensive coordinator in order to make him their new head coach, but they aren’t taking all of the Chiefs out of Nagy.

With defensive coordinator Vic Fangio back to run things on that side of the ball, Nagy’s been spending a lot of time working on installing an offense that will produce better results than the one that finished 29th in points and 30th in yards last season. Nagy said that the finished product should bear more than a slight resemblance to the one he had a hand in putting together with the Chiefs.

Nagy told Dan Pompei of The Athletic that he estimates the offense in Chicago will have a 70-80 percent similarity to the one in Kansas City.

“It will be different in some regards, which is only fair to our coaches on offense and the ideas they have,” Nagy said. “But the identity is going to be the same. It will feel very similar to Kansas City’s. We’re in the lab now. That’s the fun part. All the coaches are giving their ideas and thoughts. Coach [Andy Reid] always said he had 51 percent of the say. So ultimately, he had final say. Now I have that. There are plays I liked that Coach [Reid] didn’t like, so now those plays are in.”

The players that will be executing the offense are different than the ones Nagy had last season and from the ones his predecessor had in Chicago. The hope is that moves for the likes of Allen Robinson, Taylor Gabriel and Trey Burton and continued growth for Mitchell Trubisky, Jordan Howard and Tarik Cohen make the offensive similarities more than skin deep.

  1. So you’re basically a thief then huh Matt? Stealing old man Andy Reids offense like that and installing it as your own, a real punk move Matty.

  2. Oh so that means your offense will become highly ineffective once the TE gets hurt…if the playoff game against the Titans is any indication…

    wait you mean the OC of the chiefs brought his own playbook with him and that makes him a thief? you are a funny guy

  4. Maybe run an offense that has won something…heck, it’s like saying, “This offense will be run just like the Jets”

    Did you pay attention to the Eagle and Doug Pederson?

    Both Nagy and Pederson come from that offensive style design from Andy Reid. A real stupid statement of ignorance and/or jealousy!

    Chiefs…..only 4 play off wins since 1969…. let that sink in

    You’re not wrong…but the Raiders have one playoff appearance and zero wins in over 15 years…pot meet kettle.

    Sure but at least the Chiefs have won a playoff game this millenium

  8. as long as it will not be like the so called offenses they have had the last 15 years I will be happy. imagine how the defenses will react to not seeing the wr screen on every third down.

  9. So…,, 1st down = run. 2nd down = run. 3rd and 7 or 8. 2 yard out pass. Punt. Sounds successful

    Raiders were in the SB in 2002. I’m pretty sure that you have to win multiple playoff games to advance that far. Still day-dreaming about Derek Carr are you?

  11. The Chiefs lost Wilson (their 4th target) and replaced him with Sammy Watkins. Not bad. The Bears gutted their WR room and filled it with:
    1.) Allen Robinson
    2.) Taylor Gabriel
    3.) Anthony Miller

    They also named Trey Burton their top (U) TE. Will the Bears look like the Chiefs? They might be better, depending on how Mahomes and Trubisky develop. The Bears’ defense is already better than the Chiefs’.

  12. Day dreaming about Carr? We do Day dream about the 7th (or 8th depending who the broncos throw out there) worst QB in the AFC and NFC West. We prefer on the field performance not 1 winning season in 15 years, or in Carr’s case 1 winning season out of 4. But that’s probably why raiders like him, 1-4 really sets the bar high for you guys.

    I’ll take playoff losses every year and 11-5 seasons over your typical 7-9 season, or 8-8 if the stars lineup just right.

  13. The same Chiefs offense that doesn’t throw TDS to receivers? It’s outdated in today’s NFL.

  14. The Bears have a decent O-line, RBs and seem to have improved their WRs — it all pretty much depends on Trubisky.

    Not only this, but until the Broncos literally got mowed down by the Seahawks a few years ago, The Fade was the infamous owner of the worst SB annihilation in history – in their only appearance this century.

    It was so epic, the Fade had to pursue their current head coach relentlessly the last 10 years to rejuvenate their ‘nationwide’ degenerate fanbase.

    They won’t sniff another playoff game until they’ve been in Vegas a decade from now.
