The Bears are on a five-game losing streak and there’s been a lot of chatter about head coach Matt Nagy’s future in recent days.

Nagy said that a report Tuesday indicated that he’s been told that he’ll be fired after Thursday’s game is inaccurate, but no one would be surprised by a change. While all that is swirling, the Bears are getting ready to face the Lions.

Safety Tashaun Gipson said that he thinks players “love playing” for Nagy and that they are working to keep to “business as usual” heading into Thanksgiving.

“I don’t see any distractions on that tip of guys talking about what they heard or what’s going on,” Gipson said. via Alex Shapiro of NBCSportsChicago.com. “We’re just itching to win a football game. And I think that’s more so of the conversations that’s being had.”

The Bears haven’t won often enough in Nagy’s three-plus years and, whether it comes on Friday or at the end of the season, that may make a coaching change inevitable in Chicago.

  1. Anyone who’s watched the Bears play this year hasn’t seen a lot of evidence on the field of players “loving” to play for Nagy. Nor have they seen much toughness, game awareness, discipline, or fundamental skills like blocking, catching, covering or tackling. It’s telling that Gipson wouldn’t say he personally loves playing for Nagy, just that he “thinks” others do.

  2. Do your talking on the field junior, also, it’s the DEFENSE that’s let us down lately… something that we could always count on before !
