Matt Nagy says Bears’ putrid offensive output was ‘ridiculous’
Matt Nagy’s influence last year with the Chicago Bears resulted in creative playcalling and a vastly improved offense. Those features were nowhere to be found on Thursday night.
Nagy’s Bears lost to the Green Bay Packers 10-3 at home during the NFL’s season-opening game. The Bears had just 254 total yards on offense and committed 10 penalties for 107 yards to kill any potential drives.
After the game, Nagy said his top priority would be to score more points because “three points is ridiculous.”
Nagy on top priority this week: "Figure out how to score more points. Three points is ridiculous.''

He’s right. You’re not going to win many games scoring just three points, unless you’re playing the Dolphins. They had an opportunity for more points but opted not to try a long field goal in the third quarter. The other killer came when Mitch Trubisky was intercepted in the end zone to ruin the team’s chances of tying the game in the final two minutes.
Chicago needs to be much better moving forward. Maybe getting the ball in Allen Robinson’s hands more would help.
