All Chicago Bears fans want are credible answers.
Multiple sources revealed that Matt Nagy wouldn’t finish the season with the team he has coached for three seasons and change.
However, it seems like Nagy is the only one that doesn’t know the inevitable.
Perhaps that reported meeting with the Bears ownership settled his status for good, but he doesn’t want to reveal the details.
If the Matt Nagy news is true, why wouldn’t they just end things before Thursday’s game? It doesn’t make sense. I talked w/ someone at Halas & they had no clue about the rumors. I’m gonna keep working to find out what’s really going on. I’ll be back soon. #Bears 🐻⬇️

If the Bears’ Thanksgiving game against the Detroit Lions will be Nagy’s finale, everyone concerned with the franchise deserves to know what will happen.
They don’t want another mystery during a season that is full of misery and frustration.
Bears fans might find it challenging to savor that turkey for dinner if they have no idea regarding Nagy’s situation.
That’s why they are venting out their sentiments anywhere and anytime they can.
Fire Nagy Chants Becoming Louder
The clamor for Nagy’s sacking isn’t limited to social media anymore.
People who want to save the Bears are already expressing their opinion vocally, even during a high school football game.
Nagy was in attendance at his son’s game when the “Fire Nagy” chants took over.
Such dislike is not a positive sign for a coach who is trying to hold onto his job.

However, fans and even Bears players believe that management has been generous regarding his tenure.
In Nagy’s defense, he led the team to two playoff appearances and a division title.
Those achievements are something that his predecessors John Fox and Marc Trestman couldn’t duplicate.
However, those postseason runs are short-lived because the Bears lost in the Wild Card round.

Worst, Nagy has had lengthy losing streaks during this stint with Chicago.
The Bears lost four straight games in 2019, six straight in 2020, and five straight (and counting) in 2021.
Unlike the 2020 season, where they grabbed a playoff spot after a hot finish, the Bears won’t go beyond 17 games this time around.
Like Nagy’s job status, the Bears do not make sense when they take the field.
No Groove For The Bears
Backup quarterback Nick Foles had the best description of the offense this season.
He said to Andy Dalton that it wasn’t working and it’s impossible to build a case against his statement.
The Bears had a glimmer of hope when offensive coordinator Bill Lazor took over play-calling duties.
Unfortunately, that good fortune did not last long, and the team went back to their lousy ways.
An overwhelming number of #Bears’ players want Matt Nagy gone, league sources say. “He lost some of the locker room last season, but now it’s gone,” one source adds. One key holdup: No HC in the 101-year franchise history has ever been let go during the season.

Injuries to key players did not help their cause.
However, Nagy and the coaching staff couldn’t figure out anything regardless of who played.
The Bears continue to disappoint their fans, whether Dalton or Justin Fields starts under center.
Nagy is highly accountable for the team’s current losing streak because his decisions directly affect their fate.
As a result, the Bears are second-worst in yards per game (287.9) and dead last in passing yards per game (155.8).
Jaylon Johnson’s presser was a direct mockery of Matt Nagy.
You cannot get more blunt than this.

They also rank 29th in points per game at 16.3.
It’s safe to bet that Nagy won’t survive after those atrocious numbers.
However, it’s time to end the agony by clarifying if he’s fired or not.
That’s the least the Bears front office could do to appease their suffering fanbase.
