There are a fair number of critics of Chicago Bears head coach Matt Nagy at this point in his career – longtime sports radio host Mike Golic among them.
The former ESPN Radio host predicted on Sunday afternoon that Golic will not be back with the Bears in 2022. That’s not exactly going out on a limb, but it’s surely a prediction that most Bears fans will enjoy seeing.
However, Golic did not place all of the blame on Nagy on Sunday. He thinks it’s possible that rookie quarterback Justin Fields just isn’t ready to play.
Fields had an all-time bad first start, throwing for only 68 yards on 6 of 20 passing.
“Agree Nagy isn’t moving him, and they will have a new coach next year, but you do have to admit, Justin is Struggling, let’s not make to many excuses for him,” he tweeted.

ESPN’s Dan Orlovsky, meanwhile, wants Nagy gone right away.
“Move on from Nagy right now. This is embarrassing and it feels purposeful,” he tweeted.
The Bears lost to the Browns, 26-6, on Sunday afternoon. Chicago is now 1-2 on the season.
