Bears WR Allen Robinson praises Matt Nagy’s offensive creativity
In his first campaign at the helm with the Chicago Bears, head coach Matt Nagy has made a tremendous impact in helping turn around the franchise into being a legitimate playoff contender.
Much of the Bears’ success has come in the way of his creativity as a play-caller that has helped the offense become one of the most productive units in the NFL. The offense has certainly caught the attention of former Pro Bowl wide receiver Allen Robinson, as he voiced praise toward Nagy about his ability to think outside the box at times. That has helped keep opposing teams off-balanced. (h/t Matt Eurich of 247 Sports).
“Coach is one of the more creative — if not the most creative — offensive coach in this league,” Robinson said, via 670 The Score. “He definitely does a good job being able to have some stuff dialed up to be able to throw a defense off-balanced. For that to be the last play of regulation, we knew that it would work.”
The Bears may not be the most productive offense, but they have continued to be one of the highest scoring in the league, currently ranked fifth with 28.7 points per game. The type of play-calling that he has brought to the Bears has helped them take steps forward this year. He has also seen second-year quarterback Mitchell Trubisky excel and show that he can lead the team to success.
What is more impressive is that Chicago has been able to get some feasible play out of backup Chase Daniel while Trubisky has been out of the lineup with a shoulder injury. Nagy showed some of that creativity in last Sunday’s 30-27 loss to the New York Giants as he went with a “Philly Special” type of play to force the game into overtime in the final seconds of the fourth quarter.
The continued steps forward that the Bears have made behind their head coach’s play-calling, along with the praise that he receives from his players, shows that he has quickly integrated himself with the franchise with a bright future ahead.
