Matt Nagy clarifies, says he’ll announce QB next week

Maybe Bears coach Matt Nagy reconsidered. Or maybe it wasn’t quite the cliffhanger he thought it was.

Either way, Nagy has circled back and said that he would in fact name a starting quarterback next week, after initially saying Saturday it wouldn’t be before their opener against the Lions:

“What I meant by that, to keep it real simple, was that there was not going to be a quarterback named this week that we’re in right now, up until that first week,” Nagy said, via J.J. Stankevitz of NBCSportsChicago.com. “There will be no waiting until the middle of [next] week or the end of the week for that to happen. That wouldn’t be fair to our team and it wouldn’t be fair to the quarterbacks.”

Teams are required to post depth charts by Monday, though there are still plenty of ways to obfuscate once you do that, such as saying the starter would be Nick Foles or Mitchell Trubisky.

Of course, solving that riddle is probably more important to Bears fans than the Lions as they prepare, as Trubisky and Foles aren’t so dissimilar they require different game plans.

  1. “Oh man….I don’t know if I can take this anticipation!,” said no Bears fan ever in regards to a QB decision.

    Just pick one. Quit playing around and give the first team reps to the starter now. “Which one stinks less?” is not a decision. Flip a frocking coin for all anyone cares. We don’t have high hopes for either of them.

  2. Wait, what? Nick Foles can throw but can’t run. Mitchell Trubisky can run but can’t throw. Probably the best shot the Bears have of winning is getting the defense to prep for the wrong guy.

  3. unpopular opinion but Trubisky would be a decent QB if he wasn’t hinderee by that clown Matt Nagy. As it stands now, nobody is afraid of Trubisky or Foles. Not even the Lions

  4. Walls starting to close in on Nagy. He really can’t go back to Trubisky but if Foles plays and also looks bad all eyes will be firmly focused on Nagy.

    Your Lions are about to be swept by Nagy and Trubisky for the third consecutive year. Slay was own and torched by Trubisky and he was the only half way decent CB you had. No cares if you’re scared cl0wn boy joetoronto, the Bears, moreover NAgy/Trubisky (and MAck) OWN the Lions!

  6. A Lions fan calling out Trubisky when he has beaten them for the last four meetings. What a Cork!

  7. Feel for Nagy just a little bit on this.

    He so bad wants it to be Trubisky. He so knows it’s going to be Foles.
