Bears fans, you are not alone. Nick Foles is apparently growing sick of Chicago Bears coach Matt Nagy’s play calls.
The Chicago Bears quarterback apparently told ESPN’s Brian Griese before the “Monday Night Football” matchup in Los Angeles that he often knows that he won’t have time to execute the plays that Nagy sends in to him during games.
“We were talking to Nick Foles yesterday,” Griese said. “He said, ‘You know, sometimes play calls come in and I know that I don’t have time to execute that play call. You know, I’m the one out here getting hit. Sometimes the guy calling the plays, Matt Nagy, he doesn’t know how much time there is back here.’
“So that’s something that they have to get worked out.”
Foles went 28 of 40 for 261 yards through the air and threw two interceptions in the loss. The team never found any offensive momentum as they could only muster up 3 points. The only TD the team scored came on defense.
Nagy was asked about Griese’s comments after the game, and seemed a bit confused:
“Nick and I have a pretty good relationship, and he hasn’t said that [to me],” Nagy said, via the Chicago Sun Times. “I’m sure he’ll explain what he meant by that.”
Foles said after the game that it was a “miscommunication” with Griese:
“That was definitely a miscommunication with Brian and I,” Foles said, via the Sun Times. “We do these pregame conversations the day before the game, and that conversation… Coach Nagy and I have great conversations on the sidelines.
“With Brian, it was a miscommunication of words. That’s not what I was trying to bring across in that conversation.”
The Bears still have some work to do, but they are still 5-2 on the season.
