Matt Nagy has seemingly been on his way out for half of the season at this point.
The Chicago Bears dropped to 4-10 on the season with a loss Monday night to the Minnesota Vikings and failed to score a touchdown until the final seconds of the game.
That did not matter, as the final was 17-9 in favor of Minnesota.
And while Justin Fields threw for 285 yards, it did not matter much because of three lost fumbles by Chicago.
This lead to #FireNagy to trend on Twitter and the results are gold for Bears fans desperately wanting him out.

How many weeks does #firenagy have to trend before they actually fire him

Still waiting on notification that Nagy has been fired 🤷🏻♂️ #FireNagy

The Bears as an organization have never fired a coach during a season, so fans may have to wait even longer to get their wish.
Only Getting Worse
Nagy finished .500 or better in each of his first three seasons with the Bears.
He now has only four wins and nothing seems to be getting better.
How are people evaluating Justin Fields’ first NFL season when he has one of the most incompetent coaches in the league? #firenagy

The Bears seemed to show some life a week ago in primetime against the Green Bay Packers.
They held a halftime lead and it looked like an upset was in store.
Alas, Aaron Rodgers put them away in the second half en route to a 45-30 victory.
The Bears constantly playing in primetime has not helped Nagy’s cause much either, as the whole NFL viewing world gets to watch his mistakes.

Remember that one time Matt Nagy made a second half adjustment? Me either.

The Bears are a legacy organization in the NFL that likes to stick to tradition.
But letting Nagy stick around any longer does not make much sense if the plan is to get rid of him in a few weeks.
However, it’s important to note that a change at head coach will likely be accompanied by a change at general manager.
So ownership may be waiting to make a massive overhaul.
Doing that in the offseason allows for less chaos during the final weeks of the season.
