The Chicago Bears went out and made major headlines in the 2021 NFL Draft. They traded up from pick 20 to pick 11 to select their quarterback. The decision was made by the Bears to select Justin Fields out of Ohio State University. He was one of the best quarterbacks in college football but NFL GMs fooled themselves into letting him slip away. The Bears finally made the right decision and made the selection. Hopefully, it works out better than the last time they traded up to take a quarterback.
It feels way different than last time for a variety of reasons. One of the big reasons is Matt Nagy. We got on Matt Nagy a lot during the season for being a bad coach. There is no other way to describe it other than he was a bad coach. He was so bad that he forfeited playcalling to his offensive coordinator. That is not long, however, after he won the coach of the year for the 12-4 Bears team.
