Bernstein: Less is more for Matt Nagy, Bears

At long last, Nagy has adjusted to his personnel and let go of his ideal vision.

(670 The Score) It would be no small amount of irony if Bears coach Matt Nagy has become more likely to keep his job because he made the decision to fire himself.

But it's clear after Chicago's 33-27 victory in Minnesota on Sunday kept its flickering playoff hopes alive that this offense has become something other than Nagy's vision, and it's functioning better in the hands of a different play-caller. It's operating now under the Joe Maddon philosophy of "do simple better," and the result is the closest thing to anything resembling an offensive identity for the Bears that we've seen in the last three seasons.

The opponent was no beast, but it was a real game -- on the road in the division and with life on the line for two 6-7 teams.&#
