The Bears improved to 4-1 with a 20-19 win over the Buccaneers last Thursday, but head coach Matt Nagy’s comments the next day weren’t about how pleased he was with the effort.

Nagy said “we’re not a detailed football team on offense right now” and said his challenge to the team was to fix that before they returned to action against the Panthers in Week Six. Based on what a couple of the team’s starters said on Monday, it’s a challenge they’re willing to accept.

Wide receiver Allen Robinson said “everybody should be fired up about” Nagy’s comments and added that “nobody is walking around here satisfied” with how things have gone thus far. Right guard Germain Ifedi also agreed with Nagy’s take on the unit.

“He’s completely right,” Ifedi said, via the team’s website. “I’ve seen what he’s said and it’s completely right. If we don’t embrace what he said, if we don’t take that as a great challenge and something we should wear every day, then we’re wrong. We have to be better. We have to be more detailed.”

It’s always better to try to fix such issues when you have a winning record and the Bears will have the next few days to shore up the details before they attempt to end Carolina’s three-game losing streak.

  1. “Bears winning with a lot of smoke and mirrors and a big dose of luck. it won’t last….”

    The Bears just beat the best QB with a high power offense in the league.

    “dose of luck….”

    Is that why Mack / Quinn is the best pass rushing duo and Fuller/Johnson is the best CB duo in the league?

    You must be the same guy that said Mack disappears and takes plays off and then had a MVP caliber game against Tom Brady the same week. LOL.

  3. Nagy’s offense cannot survive many miscues. And it’ll never carry the team if the D has a bad game. Most teams are in that same boat but the difference is that Nagy thinks of himself as a great offensive innovator even though the end result sure doesn’t support that label.

  4. As long Nagy was including HIMSELF in that statement, then yeah…he was right.

    In year 3 as a play caller he has proven absolutley NOTHING in this league, except for one thing:

    HE HAS NO CLUE HOW TO RUN THE BALL.

  5. Come on guys… Everyone knows defense isn’t real. Offense is the only thing that matters. I mean really. Why do we even have them line up on the other side of the ball? They just get in the way of touchdowns. If defense actually helps it must be cheating.

  6. Nagy tossed aside his scapegoat, Trubisky, so all eyes should be on him now. Unfortunately for him, as a starter, Foles has looked slightly worse.

  7. The Bears aren’t winning with smoke and mirrors. They’re winning with defense. But defense isn’t going to keep winning forever. Offense needs to get better. It could.

  8. why can’t Bear fans just stop for a minute and enjoy 4 and 1. We’ll get to see this week if the offense can help the “smoke and mirrors” defense.

  9. “ Bears will have the next few days to shore up the details before they attempt to end Carolina’s three-game losing streak.”

    I think you meant winning streak.
