Matt Nagy doesn't rule out relinquishing Bears' offensive play-calling duties


(670 The Score) Bears coach Matt Nagy reiterated Monday that the blame for the team's 26-6 loss to the Browns on Sunday starts with him and that he would search for the reasons behind the problems.

That includes a thorough self-evaluation for Nagy, who didn't rule out relinquishing play-calling duties for the Bears' offense.

"Everything is on the table," Nagy told reporters at Halas Hall.

The Bears nearly hit a franchise-low with just 47 net yards of offense Sunday, including one net passing yard. The woes came in rookie quarterback Justin Fields' first career NFL start, as he went 6-of-20 for 68 yards.

Hired by the Bears in 2018, Nagy has been the team's offensive play-caller for nearly the entirety of his tenure. The exception came in the latter half of the 2020 season, when offensive coordinator Bill Lazor was handed those duties from Nagy.

The Bears averaged 22.4 points per game over Lazor's seven regular-season games as the team's play-caller on offense. That included scoring 30 or more points in a franchise-record four straight games.

Following their loss Sunday, the Bears rank second-to-last in scoring (13.3 points) and last in yards per game (191.7) in the NFL.
