Chicago Bears head coach Matt Nagy isn’t yet rolling out enormous improvements to his offense following a dull presentation during a “Monday Night Football” misfortune to the Los Angeles Rams.
Per Jeff Dickerson of ESPN, Nagy affirmed to journalists on Tuesday that he’s keeping Nick Foles as his starting quarterback and won’t surrender offensive play-calling duties.
“I look at all [the possibility of someone else calling plays],” Nagy said. “The very first thing I look at is that. I talk to our coaches and we talk through that whole process. I’m really honestly not opposed to, there’s no opposition from me if we feel like that’s what the issue is. And so we look at that. Right now, where we’re at, that’s not where we think it’s at.”
Foles supplanted previous first-round draft selection Mitchell Trubisky in Week 3, and the one-time Super Bowl Most Valuable Player finished 28-of-40 passes for 261 yards with two interceptions in the 24-10 thrashing to the Rams. Altogether, Foles has finished 64.1% of his endeavors with 1,139 passing yards, six touchdowns, and six interceptions this season.
Trubisky has finished 59.3% of his throws for 560 yards, six touchdowns, and three picks.
Nagy forgot about the thought that Trubisky could get a search for this current Sunday’s down against the New Orleans Saints.
“Yeah, no,” Nagy explained. “I think you can look at that a bunch of different ways. When you say that in regards to a mobile quarterback, I’m not so sure that that’s the answer with that, with what we’re talking about, with the drop-back of a quarterback and the offensive tackle situation. We have a lot of confidence and I have a lot of confidence in Nick right now.
“Again, this is a process for us to work through, and it’s not just one person. It’s really not. And I know from yesterday, decision-making wise and where he’s at, I thought he did a good job. I thought he made some good throws. He missed a couple as well, but again, it’s a team sport, so there are some other reasons for that as well. Just keep rolling through that and working through it.”
Per ESPN details, Foles is as of now 27th among 31 qualified parts in QBR (46.2).
