Re: Nagy optimism

It is absolutely 100% TRUE that Nagy did not tailor his offense to the NVP. Nagy explained exactly why ... "I didn't come here to run the I Formation". Put simply, Nagy realized that by attempting to make Trubisky look serviceable he was dooming himself. So his thought process was "s...

Re: An Interesting Read

Lol. When I think back on Lovie's defense, one of the defining characteristics was the Bears lining up in the mug look, dropping back into zone, and a quick slant being completed right in front of Brigg's face. He was extremely average in coverage and it sounds like we all agree that a million tackl...

Re: Nagy optimism

The competition also got worse and the offensive line improved at the end of the season. You have to be able to throw in the pocket and hit open receivers, something he’s apparently still struggling with in Buffalo. This criticism is so ridiculous, “Nagy is a bad coach because he wanted Trubisky to...

Re: Rd 6, P221: Dazz Newsome, WR - N. Carolina

i get that expecting a 6th rounder to be a quality starter year one is total meatball territory, but to me he really does look like he plays much faster than he tested out. I think playing the slot is infinitely easier than playing outside and i will not be surprised if they try to have some package...

I'm a little surprised that people in here think Dazz is JAG. I'm fully expecting him to (and assuming Nagy and Co are hoping that he) seriously compete for the starting slot role.
