Matt Patricia was relieved of his duties in Detroit, so why doesn’t the Chicago Bears brass take a hint?
Over the past two and a half seasons, the Chicago Bears have had a rollercoaster of a ride under head coach Matt Nagy. The honeymoon was romantic, after Chicago won the NFC North in 2018. But, since then, Chicago has taken a turn for the worse.
In the same year Nagy was hired, the Detroit Lions hired former New England Patriots defensive coordinator Matt Patricia. Coming to the Lions, Patricia was supposed to toughen those guys up and instill a similar style of play he saw in New England. After all, he came from a strong defensive club in the Patriots who simply had to “do their job” to be great.
