Matt Nagy doesn’t seem to be concerned about the reports that he might lose his job. On Tuesday, Chicago Bears head coach Matt Nagy spoke to the media regarding a report that he had been told he would be fired following the team’s game against Detroit Lions on Thanksgiving Day. Nagy stated that he has not spoken to the Bears regarding his job situation. 

“That is not accurate,” Nagy spoke per ESPN. The report Patch.comThis said that he would be let loose after the game. “I have great communication with ownership, with George (McCaskey), (President) Ted (Phillips) and (general manager) Ryan (Pace), but I have not had any discussions,”Nagy said. “We have not talked this week, and that was scheduled. We have constant communication — I always think it’s good and healthy — and we stayed on course with the bye week, and with the short turnaround with game prep, we have not (talked).”

The Bears are currently losing five straight games and will go back to Andy Dalton for their starting quarterback. Justin Fields, a rookie quarterback, was injured in Sunday’s match against the Baltimore Ravens. He will be back in the starting lineup when he is healthy. Bears fans chanted during the game. “Fire Nagy”They are frustrated with the coach’s performance over the last two seasons. 

“The defense, I thought, swarmed all day long,”Nagy spoke about Sunday’s match. According to the official website of the team, “did what they had to do with the tackles and the sacks. But in the end, I know that they’re frustrated because of not being able to close that game and finish the game. You’ve got to finish. You’ve got to be able to end the games, close them out. In the end, it’s situational football. You have the lead in two games to be able to close it out and win both of those games and we didn’t do that.”

The good news for Bears fans is that they will be facing a Lions sideline team that has yet not won a game. However, the Lions have been playing better football. They drew a 16-16 match against the Pittsburgh Steelers and lost to the Cleveland Browns 13-10. The New Orleans Saints hold the final playoffs spot, which is only two games away from the Bears.
