Throughout training camp, the Bears have conducted a quarterback competition. Without an offseason of OTAs, or preseason games against other teams, the normal guideposts for a such a competition are absent.
“It is not easy,” Nagy said, via JJ Stankevitz of NBCSportsChicago.com. “It’s not clear-cut.”
Players are off today and tomorrow while the team cuts to 53, but the biggest decision they’ll make is who will lead them onto the field next Sunday against the Lions. Either way, Nagy said he was pleased with the way the process unfolded, and cited specific improvements both quarterbacks made during camp.
“Sometimes people say, ‘Well if you have two quarterbacks that means you don’t have any,’” Nagy said. “We know what we have in these guys. We feel really good about both of them.
“Being as brutally honest as I could be, it’s difficult.”
Nagy can only hope that whichever quarterback he picks can make it difficult for other teams as well, and not just his own.
