Matt Nagy may be at the end of his tenure with the Chicago Bears if things don’t drastically turn around soon.
His Bears are 3-6 on the year and are riding a four-game losing streak into a Week 11 showdown with the Baltimore Ravens.
Justin Fields did show improvement in the team’s last game, a primetime loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers on a night that was overtaken by bad officiating, but he is nowhere near the level of what we are seeing with a player like Mac Jones.
Nagy failed with Mitchell Trubisky and got another chance with Fields.
But Trubisky did still get the team to the postseason on multiple occasions.
Nagy is known for not offering up much in press conferences, but did recently provide a quote that deserves a double-take.

So the losing streak is no one’s fault, except for everyone’s in the organization.
That is not exactly a great way to motivate a team coming out of a bye week.
Not The Best Motivation
Nagy just does not seem like the guy to lead the Bears to greatness.
This is his fourth season with the team and he has gone to the playoffs twice, only to lose both times.
He declared Trubisky to be the wrong guy for his system, but if Fields is struggling too, then the head coach has to take the blame at some point.
Matt Nagy has had three first round picks and a Super Bowl MVP at quarterback, yet his offense has never looked even somewhat competent.

Even making the postseason may not be enough to save Nagy’s job at this point.
However, that all depends on ownership’s view of the situation.
If they just want stability, Nagy can get another year, barring an epic collapse over the next two months.
But the worst thing to do would be to bring him back on a short leash, with that being an open secret.
Nagy blamed everyone for the team’s struggles and that alone shows his leadership skills.NEXT: Bears Get Bad Injury News On LB Khalil Mack
