Sean Payton joins Matt Nagy in the “stupid department.”

January 25, 2019

When Drew Brees stepped back to throw on that first down this past Sunday only to throw an incomplete pass, I knew this was going to be a problem for the Saints. Then, on the third down throw, the “controversy” began.

Yet, nobody is talking about that. Everyone is talking about the phantom no-call on pass interference.

This just goes to show that a lot of coaches are just stupid. We saw it with Dan Quinn in the Super Bowl against the Patriots two years ago. We saw it with Nagy when he was calling plays with the Chiefs last year. And this year, Nagy in many different scenarios with the Bears. Add Sean Payton to that list.

Yeah, I know. Drew Brees is the greatest. He is. But two out of the three plays, they were pass plays that were unnecessary.

What did we learn today? In those types of scenarios where common sense should be displayed, it isn’t. This is why teams lose. The coaches beat their own teams.

Run. The. Ball.

Point the finger at everyone; not just the kicker.

It’s been difficult the last ten days getting over what happened on that Sunday evening in Chicago. For the first time in eight years, we saw the Bears in the playoffs. We were also waiting 12 years for a return to the Super Bowl. And for some of us, we still have yet to see the Bears win it. It sucks.

All this past season, I have bitched about how Matt Nagy is not calling plays to the strengths of this team. I strongly believe he is solely responsible for two of the four losses in the regular season. The first being the season opener against the Packers. Instead of running the ball on certain plays, especially late, it’s these idiotic passes that end up costing the team. For the game against the Dolphins, same thing. The Bears are up two scores and seemed to have had another touchdown if it wasn’t for an awful call by the referees. But none of that would have mattered if they had just ran the ball instead of passing. So, what happens next play after the penalty? A throw in the middle of the end zone with double coverage. Interception. Dolphins come back. Awful.

Then, this playoff game arrives. The defense couldn’t stop the Eagles on that last drive. The offense was just out of whack the entire game. I also felt Nagy wasn’t helping the team much either with some awful play-calling.

But none of it would have mattered because the Bears had the chance to win the game on the final drive. Mitchell Trubisky did everything in his power to give the team a chance to win. Then, of course, the kicker misses the kick. Yeah, I know it was blocked. But, he could have kicked the damn thing higher. It didn’t help that he had 147 other kicks during the year hit the goal post.

A lot has changed in ten days. Vic Fangio left to be the head coach of the Broncos. Assistant Ed Donatell joined him. Of course, that kicker also shows up on National Television to talk about how he is blessed and all that.

But what really pissed me off is that this past week, Ryan Pace and Matt Nagy are doing their year-end press conference. Thankfully, I missed most of it simply by forgetting it was going on. Catching the “highlights” of it proved that I was happy I didn’t see the whole thing. Kareem Hunt, who was the idiot cut by the Chiefs, was brought up as a potential free agent signing. Of course, a bunch of people are now talking about how great this could be for the Bears. Nagy tells the press that he doesn’t talk about football with Hunt and instead, just asks about what’s going on.

This is just another reason to dislike Matt Nagy and this franchise. They are seriously considering signing someone who is violent and hits women. And trust me, I am not some “PC” police officer. This is an issue that has to deal with our society. Nobody who puts a hand on a woman should be allowed to play in the NFL, especially for my favorite team. That goes for any sport as well. Fuck Kareem Hunt and fuck the Bears if they are actually considering signing this fuck wad.

Here we are again, Bears fans. Another offseason with no Super Bowl parade in downtown Chicago. Another offseason where so many questions with very little answers. What do you think the Bears should do come draft time and free agency? Discuss.

Of course: Eagles 16 Bears 15

Defense – Bad. So much for being number one all year. Terrible drives for two touchdowns.

Offense – Okay.

Cody Parkey – Fuck.

I knew it all week that the Bears were in big trouble. Go fucking figure. You can’t make this shit up.

I’m feeling like shit. Done for a while.
