Defense does not deserve this garabage play at QB.

His game is flashes. He’s talented as hell but really dumb and just bad. He’s a top draft pick with an amazing defense and plenty of offensive talent around him, and yet we’re talking about the same issues three years in.

At least they won’t have to lock him into a huge extension.

Hell on the last series he had a massive gain up the seam in the middle wide open, I'd say there's at least 30 other QB's who hit that pass.

Yeah, it’s hard to have much positivity regarding Mitch., right now. I want the kid to be good, but tonight was very discouraging.

Receivers not named Robinson tonight: 3 catches for 27 yards.

18 targets to RBs and believe me most of them were not by design

I'm not gonna be disappointed if Mitch turns out to be a wasted pick. That said, you all are putting too much stock in the first game of the season. Neither offense looked very good. Shock since neither offense played much (if at all) in the preseason. It showed. Sure the defenses dominated, and I think there's gonna be plenty of spotty, inconsistent play the first two weeks all across the NFL. How many wanted Nagy fired after game 1 last year?

I think the biggest difference for the Bears between this year and last will be that they play a first place schedule. Not a lot "gimmes" on that schedule.

I said something similar after week 1 last year, but last year I actually believed it.

As pointless as Trubisky looked, let's not overlook how feckless and overmatched the offensive line looked.

I expected there to be some rust to knock off but my gawd the offense was 'I'd rather stick red hot pokers into my eyeballs than watch this' bad.

Listening to the post game interviews of Mitch. The guy has the vocabulary of an 8 year old. Stupid is as stupid does.

Nagy really learned nothing from the playoff loss
13 carries by RBs in that game, 43 pass attempts
11/45 tonight
Cohen 1 carry TOTAL (it wasn't tonight)
Oh we are just pinching ourselves with this David Montgomery kid according to Nagy, and he gave him 6 horsefeathering carries
And his stupid ass decision to forego the long FG attempt earlier only to go for it on 4th and with a horrible playcall to boot

Hes really been outcoached horribly in his last 2 games, and exposed to a significant extent IMO

Nagy horsefeathering sucks at calling plays. Forget “Be You” and be someone that doesn’t have their head stuck deep up their horsefeathers.

Maybe Nagy will figure out that RPO and play action plays don't work when you never actually give the ball to a running back

The offense looked so pedestrian. I felt like the offensive pass interference by Gabriel was [expletive], but as a whole Nagy and the O never got horsefeathers going. How much of it was lack of preseason reps?

The next 4 games will be tough

Sucks, because we're going to have to start over @ QB *again*

But yeah, Mitch is a huge part of the problem. There's no scenario I can see where he suddenly develops consistently good decision-making and hits on all the throws he needs to. Looks great on a few plays, but it's just not enough to be a good QB in this league. Most guys can show "flashes." So what? That's not the definition of a great QB and there's no reason to believe it will progress further than that.

Combine that with Nagy's laughable playcalling in key situations, and you've got last night's joke of a performance. I know the defensive players won't say anything, and they shouldn't, but wasting great performances like that has to be frustrating as heck.

The freaking dive play to Cordarelle Patterson was really dumb.
The play calling as a whole was not good. But let's not forget that the concept behind the RPO is the QB is the one choosing whether the play is a run or pass.
