Matt Nagy: I love where this team is at

The Bears had their five-game winning streak snapped by the Giants on Sunday despite a valiant comeback effort in the final two minutes of the game.

Chicago rallied to tie the game after falling behind by 10 points on an Aldrick Rosas field goal, but the Giants scored the only points in overtime and secured a 30-27 win on their home field. There was plenty to lament for the Bears when the game was over, including three turnovers and an inability to get the Giants offense off the field quickly in the second half.

Head coach Matt Nagy went in a different direction in his postgame comments, however.

“I absolutely love this team,” Nagy said, via Chris Emma of 670 The Score. “I love where we’re at. This is life, man. How are you going to rebound back from it? Are you going to sulk or are you going to pick it back up, go practice, go play and learn? That’s what we’re going to do.”

They’re going to need to come up with a pretty big rebound. The Rams will be in town next Sunday night and the Vikings will be right on their tail if results go their way on Sunday afternoon and next week, so the Bears will need more than a strong rally that falls short next time out.

  1. Lost among the defense not showing up in the 2nd half, bad OL play and Chase Daniel’s meltdown was an amazing performance by Tarik Cohen that went to waste. He was a lock for NFC offensive player of the week had they won.

  2. I don’t eat a lot of sweets.

    So… help me out on the type of sweets that the 2018 Chicago Bears schedule resembles.

  3. The Giants gave them their first 14 points on an easy dropped pick and then a hands to the face penalty. This game shouldnt have been close….but the Giants tend to let sure wins become life and death struggles.

    With that said, Mitch didnt play so that obviously hurts. The Bears are good….but they arent winning a SB this year if they cant beat my previously 3-8 Giants.

  4. They’re not overrated. They weren’t expected to have an 8-4 record at this point. They were playing with a back-up QB as well. Sometimes it helps to watch the game before commenting on it.

    It’s funny that when a winning team loses, there are a bunch of knee-jerk comments that that team is overrated. Silly. By that measure, every team with a winning record this year is overrated.

    Saints lose to Cowboys- Saints are overrated. Patriots lose to Lions- Patriots are overrated (and in decline). It’s a tough league and any team can lose at any time.

    The Vikings would also be hot on their tail if they win today. Guess you just assumed the Pats would win.
