Nick Foles feels sense of urgency to build relationships on the field

When the Bears traded for quarterback Nick Foles in the offseason, many noted that he had played for the Chiefs when Bears head coach Matt Nagy was on the staff and that there was connective tissue that linked Nagy with the Eagles Offense that Foles piloted to a Super Bowl win.

Those ties helped convince the Bears to make the move for Foles, but the last two weeks have been the only times that Nagy has actually called plays for the quarterback.

“Every day we have been working together is an opportunity to grow and get to know each other,” Foles said, via the team’s website. “Obviously, we’ve known each other for a long time, but that was just [Nagy’s] first time calling a game for me, ever. It takes time to build that relationship on the field and obviously being with new players [and in a] new place.”

The Bears are four games into the regular season, so it’s not like they have a lot of time for everyone to get comfortable with one another. Foles acknowledged “a sense of urgency” to improve execution over what they managed against the Colts last Sunday and this week underscored that need given a Thursday night game against the Buccaneers.

  1. It doesn’t matter what he does because he’s never going to get a fair shake from the fans or the media. He started his first game against the league’s #1 defense and now most “fans” want him benched or fired. Good grief. It’s a game. Try to enjoy it.

  2. If Mediocre Mitch got a few years’ leash, than Super Bowl-winning MVP QB Nick Foles can be given a few weeks, Chicago.

  3. So let me get this straight. Nick Foles deserves to be evaluated on a curve because of how he’s played with the eagles in the past. Tribusky was blamed for WRs dropping passes, being inaccurate and making bad decisions. So people can’t blame Foles for the same things? IMO is you are a superbowl MVP winning QB, you shouldn’t ever make those mistakes and he did multiple times, and will continue. Look at his history. He sucks unless he is in an eagles uniform.

  4. Trubisky was lousy against the Falcons and Foles was just as bad against the Colts. NO Cohen appears to be a bigger loss than we thought and the Bears O line is no great shakes.

  5. The Colts D is very good — Trubisky woulda been a disaster against that D. I wouldn’t jump to conclusions yet.
